The Body – Weekly Wishlist

Got a body in your wardrobe? If you were wearing them in the 1990s (the height of their fashion life), then you might have bad memories of struggling with crotch fasteners after a few too many down the pub.

But, the body is actually a great wardrobe staple. A body works brilliantly for any occasion, and with any bottom half. And there are quite a few to choose from in the shops this season.

Our top tip? They work brilliantly under this season’s on-trend dungarees. They are the ultimate in layering fashion – layer them under sweaters, over T-shirts, tuck them into skirts or jeans. Choose plain or patterned, slogan or sparkly – and if you really want to push this trend, try an underwear body as outerwear – but keep it black.
