The Look: 50 Shades Of Grey

lace up bodysuit jeans

Sporty, off-duty and masculine are making more of a come back than Beiber! As a self-confessed girly girl, today I gave this style a bit of a saucy edge with this melange lace up bodysuit.

Ladies: take note! A sporty look can still scream femininity. Today I show you how, directly from my favorite wall.

I feel like I'm about to break out in 'Uptown Funk.' With ripped jeans, Adidas Superstars and a
grey fedora, I might have well of raided Bruno Mars's wardrobe! Sarcasm aside, I actually am really feeling this sporty, off-duty look.

If fashion were some sort of scale, I definitely gravitate more towards the girly side of things. Although I don't exactly walk around in hot pink and stilettos, I am about as far from a tomboy as England is from being tropical! But with ripped jeans, Adidas sneakers and all things sporty tom boy hitting it big in the style stakes, I couldn't resist styling them up with a hint of femininity.

This grey lace up bodysuit from Lookbook Store is a big injection of va-va-voom sex appeal into a trendy, but masculine look. I've always been a huge fan of lace-ups, but have never gone for such a plunging piece before. I think that it looks really off-duty and cool with the distressed jeans, whilst still looking classy and not showing too much skin.

Looking to give the more boyish trend a go? Here's my top tips

How To Make A Boyish Look More Feminine
  • If you're wanting to wear something a bit low cut or short, this trend is your chance! Juxtapose a low-cut top with baggy or ripped jeans or athletic yoga pants. Contrast short shorts with a baggy sports tee or hoody.
  • Accessorize! The simple addition of a statement accessory can instantly make a look more masculine or feminine. Dress up a boyish look with a sparkly statement necklace or make a girly look more edgy with a unisex bandana.
  • Ensure your hair and makeup is flawless.
  • Add a feminine handbag for an interesting contrast. 
You've probably read this and thought, 'not that wall again...' Monsoon rain is bucketing it down here, leaving all my preferred tropical locations a huge no. This wall is my fail-safe photo zone! I may not be Jon Snow, but I am seriously the watcher of this wall!
 
 How do you like to play with masculine and feminine elements in your look?

Rachel

  3. I love, love, LOVE this lace-up bodysuit on you Rachel, it's so sexy and yet entirely tasteful. Ensuring hair and makeup is flawless when going for a more sporty look is essential, as you've said, and I often throw on a pair of heels too (but when do I not? ;)). Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  18. You rocked this look my dear. I'm not girly girly, but I am somewhat Tomboyish, yet folks enjoy seeing what I style which makes me feel great. Thanks to this post I now know what to do with those gray jeans I've been trying to figure out a way to showcase. LoL You're an amazing inspiration and I do hope you keep on rocking your style.

Like yourself, I'm very much a girly girl at heart. :) I don't ever go for anything boyish, skirts and pink things all the way, haha! Hope you're having a fab weekend so far, darling. <3
