In partnership with THINX
We’ll admit it, the feeling of summer has been quite a tease as of late; temps are low, skies are grey, and there’s an office-wide consensus that none of us wants to wear pants anymore. I’m sure you get it. Frustrations aside, summer is a-comin’. And like every year, I acknowledge its imminent approach with ambivalence. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sunny season just as much as any other girl. But has my yearning for a respite from the winter months overshadowed how hot AF summer actually is? Have I forgiven the city streets of boob sweat and swamp thighs before 9AM? Hell no.
But this year will be different because we’ve discovered the secret to beating the heat. THINX, who you might already know for their revolutionary period panties and disruptive subway campaigns, has taken that design technology and put it into a do-it-all leotard that’s designed with 4-layer tech to fight period leaks and keep you fresh ‘n’ dry (no small feat in this summer heat, amiright?). Skeptics among us, I guarantee you; this will be the hardest working piece in your summer wardrobe.
From office to off-duty, here’s how to wear this one piece, four ways.
Look 1: Relaxed Denim This outfit is a no-brainer for those extra hot days. Pair it with baggy denim shorts, colorful wrap sandals, and a chunky belt to tie the look together. The bodysuit’s leak-proof layers and athletic construction will wick away sweat and keep you feeling dry, all day long. Jane Birkin, eat your heart out.
Look 2: Office AproproA bodysuit? At work? Yes and yes. And the combo is surprisingly chic (just peep the lowcut back detailing). The trick is tying on a pair of loose-fitting trousers and carrying a lightweight trench to cover up in air conditioned climes. Finish with simple heels and a statement bag. Boss.
Look 3: The Do-It-AllThis look shows you that you don’t always have to bare it all to be incredibly sexy. The bodysuit holds you in, and provides some coverage for an open, flowy blouse. Top it with a drapey skirt and walkable heels for layered, outfit versatility. Works anywhere, anytime.
Look 4: Gym Class Heroes No pants, no problem. Sweat it out without worrying about a leak, or leaving the studio feeling like you just swam in your clothes. Workout in your one-piece and you’re good to go. Just add lightweight sweats, a cropped denim jacket, some stylish sneakers, and you are ready to get on with your day. Laidback Luke? Naw, laidback luxe.
