How To Do Body Con Modestly

I’m not a huge fan of body con dresses for everyday wear.  There’s something about skintight spandex that simply screams club wear to me.  Of course this is just a personal preference, so I’m not judging or hating if body con is your thing!  However, for those of us that might not feel 100% comfortable donning body con in the broad light of day, I’ve thrown together some tips for how to pull it off.

I fell in love with this particular Topshop number because of the print, not the silhouette.  The first plus is that it has sleeves, so it doesn’t feel quite so revealing.  That alone makes a difference, but I also opted to add some tights, which work with the current weather here.  Because I’m short my instinct is to wear sky high heels, especially with a dress, but platforms with a skin tight dress ventures back into the realm of club wear.  Choose subtle heels, if at all.  I’m wearing low-heeled metallic booties by Jeffrey Campbell.  Finally, I topped off the look with a faux-fur vest, which adds a little more coverage, though it also works without.  A vest or jacket is a great option if the weather is cool.  Obviously this look works because it’s still winter-ish here, and these tips are definitely best for transitional seasons, like fall time or even spring…just not summer when the weather is hot!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on body con!  Do you fully embrace the style?  And if not, did you find these tips helpful?  Let me know in the comments 🙂
