Fashion Favourite : the BODYSUIT - ark collection

Today I would like to talk about a very stylish and brilliant little piece of clothing:



And specifically a collection on


a store based in the UK but ships worldwide

There are plenty of reasons for the bodysuit being brilliant, but just to mention a few:

  • It is a one piece form-fitting garment, giving it a sleek and feminine look
  • It covers the upper body while stretching down to cover the crotch, similar to a leotard or bathing costume. But unlike the latter, it has convenient snaps or hooks at the crotch  to tie and have the entire piece stay perfectly tucked in to a skirt, shorts or pants.
The collection at Ark is dynamic with lots of trendy prints and styles.

Here are my top 10 favorite bodysuits :

What I particularly love about this dress bodysuit is the detailing such as the sheer mesh panel stretching over the front and back , cut-outs and religious and skull prints. We all love us some skulls and the religious prints stem from the current pious trend which we saw all over the runways during the fashion weeks. It really doesn't matter if you are religious or not.This is just a cool trend to rock!

This classic shiny elastic bodysuit features a scooped neckline and dipped back and side cut-outs Those red roses definitely adds a great deal of sexiness. It bears the print of a skull notably in the style of the much celebrated 'Day of the Dead'.

Here we're talking pretty (floral) with edge (spikes), making one trendy bodysuit! The cut-outs on both the front and back are positioned perfectly underneath the spiked embellishments situated on top of padded shoulders.  

Other than the high waist denim shorts featured, this jersey bodysuit will also look great paired with a white high waist skater skirt or white high waist shorts.

This classic bodysuit has an elegant night out written all over it. The sheer mesh on the chest and back features polka-dot print and it bears a sweetheart shape across the chest as well. 

While the plaid skirt featured looks great, this bodysuit will also look great with a black or white high waist bodycon skirt or camel high waist trousers as seen here on celebrity singer Beyonce.

For an edgier look, you can pair it with a pair of black high waist leather pants.

The paisley print has been a recurring trend since forever! And if a trend never goes away, it must sure be loved. And here it is found on a beautifully shaped classic cotton mixed jersey bodysuit. It elegantly features a high neck and scooped backline.

This can also be styled with a white skater or bodycon skirt, as well as a black or white pair of high waist trousers.

So how cool are those gold look skeleton hands on the front of the straps? Super, right? What adds extra edge to this classic shaped bodysuit is the sheer mesh inserts front center and sides. The padded bra style top serves as a bra in itself, making it unnecessary to wear one separately underneath. 

Here it is featured with a pair of denim high waist shorts and the match is perfect! Other styling options would be a short high waist bodycon skirt in black, gold, white or red.

At first glance this bodysuit looks very basic. But upon further inspection, you will realize that it is not. Especially the complete open back. So sexy and chic. 

Soft cotton mix jersey stretch fabric.

The way it is styled here is perfect but you could always go with high waist trousers, skater or body con skirts!

Of course we couldn't pass this one up. Not with that skull face on the front and back! Definitely a must-have in the wardrobe! 

This can be worn as shown with a pair of sneakers or high tops, or dress it up with a black cropped blazer and black high waist trousers or body con skirt!

The henna hand print has been trending quite a bit lately. And that is what puts this particular soft stretch jersey bodysuit in the spotlight. It has a bodycon fit and dipped back-line

Style as seen in featured look or with a black leatherette skater style skirt or white high waist body con skirt.

With its Aztec print, this classic bodysuit has a tribal look and feel. But an element of elegance and chic is added to it with the round neckline and deep V sheer lace inset in the front. The back of the neck has a key hole cut out that is fastened with a small button to easily pull over the head.

I simply love how it is styled here, but for bit of a more formal look, you could go with a black high waist bodycon skirt or trousers.

The above bodysuits may be my top 10 favorite but it doesn't mean I don't love the rest of the collection as I certainly do. We see plenty of skulls, as well as a mind's eye and tiger print.
