Catsuits have been cropping up all over the runway, and in spite of the public-restroom difficulties involved in wearing one, it did seem like a great layering piece that would give me smooth lines, and a perfect answer to the sheer trend. So I began my search for a catsuit. I looked high, and I looked low. I found a couple, like the Atlas from AllSaints, but $100 seems a bit silly to me for something that is basically just a pair of leggings an a tanktop. But where were the inexpensive versions? WHERE?
This was literally a three day search. Then, at two in the morning while searching EBay, I discovered the horrible truth. The new trend in catsuits is calling them ‘unitards’. Like when you were in gymnastics in 3rd grade. It there a WORSE word for a piece of clothing that is supposed to be sexy? Hey, marketing guys… WTF? However, I bit the bullet and googled ‘unitard’, and a whole new world opened up before me. I put a couple in this week’s Haute List- in fact, after much deliberation I went for the ASOS Cross Back Unitard, which was a Haute List pick. Here are the rest of the ones I liked. But I am calling them catsuits, now and forever.
