Today's Everyday Fashion: The Lace Up Bodysuit

I'm a total copycat in this outfit. In a different way than usual though, because I saw her outfit and it inspired me to purchase something similar, not just use what I already own! The inspiration photo is from New Orleans Fashion Week, and I was struck by her outfit and how classy and yet edgy she looks. It really stood out to me and I wanted to put together a similar outfit for an upcoming fashion event. This is the first bodysuit I ordered online and I'm really happy with it. Her wide leg pants and blazer are to die for with it, but it will likely be too hot for the event I'm attending. I wanted to keep the same basic principles though - to wear something loose and covered up to offset the plunging v-neck, and my wide leg culottes were the perfect pairing. (It almost looks like I'm wearing a long skirt with it!) This lace up design is all over stores right now - is it a trend you would try?
