The annual Met Gala, formal name being the Costume Institute Gala (and also known as the Met Ball), was held this past Monday, May 5th, 2014 at the prestigious Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The Met Ball has always been a much anticipated event since its inaugural gala in 1971. It celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s fashion exhibit for the season and it is also considered to be one of the most exclusive and successful fundraising events of the year. This year was no exception as the Met Ball’s red carpet dazzled with the gowns and suits worn by the star studded guest list.
Summer is nearly upon us and we often find ourselves looking into our closets, making sure we have suitable clothes to weather the hottest season. The trick to having a good set of clothes for any season is not quantity, but quality. If you have a few well-made pieces that can be worn in different ways, you will never find yourself without a thing to wear. Versatility is key to a piece of wardrobe earning the “staple” title, and the bodysuit is a tried and true must-have piece. With its comfortable stretchability, ease of wear, and flattering silhouette, the bodysuit is a proven summer staple.
