Fashion Must-Have: The Body

Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U Neck Long Sleeve bodysuit, £27.00, American Apparel

The bodysuit is back. And it's no wonder why, unlike the other catwalk trends of yesteryear (trophy jackets, anyone?) this is one look that can be worn again and again. Pay homage to the nineties by pairing it with high-waisted jeans and a boyfriend blazer, or wear it under a suit for a sleeker silhouette. It's the perfect counterpoint to this season's high volume cuts, and there's no need to break the bank. Try hitting New Look for bodysuits in black, grey and breton for £6. Or, if you have more cash to splash, head to American Apparel where you'll be spoilt for choice, with basic styles (as above) in a variety of colours to shiny, spandex and zebra print numbers. My favourite is this red, crocheted body from Topshop Boutique
