How to Wear a Bodysuit: 9 Styling Tips
Cute bodysuits are one of our favorite trends for both during and after quarantine! Not only are they incredibly comfy, but they also create a smooth, seamless and super flattering look that’s perfect for layering. While bodysuits might bring back memories of ballet leotards from when you were younger, today’s styles are totally grown up.
From wearing yours underneath a skirt for flirty vibes to getting ready for the workday with a pair of slouchy trousers, here are nine of our favorite styling tips for how to wear a bodysuit.
1. Create a flirty look by wearing a bodysuit with a cute skirt.
Cute skirts in swingy fabrics are the perfect complement to a bodysuit because they give it an extra touch of feminine flair! Pair with chunky white sneakers and a bouncy ponytail and then strut your stuff like the style star you are.
2. Build a celebrity-inspired look by combining a tie-front bodysuit with joggers and hoop earrings.
Hints of early 2000s fashions are making their way into today’s outfits, and we couldn’t be more excited! Joggers and hoop earrings look amazing with a tie-front bodysuit without making your outfit look too costumey.
3. A denim skirt is the perfect mix of comfort and style, especially when worn with a crossbody bag and oversized sunnies.
A denim skirt is a classic closet staple! Combine yours with a colorful bodysuit and oversized accessories.
4. Belt a flowy, blousy bodysuit for a touch of sparkle and sophistication.
The best part about wearing a bodysuit is that you don’t have to worry about your shirt untucking from your pants, leaving your belt with only one job to do (aside from holding up your pants, of course): help your outfit look even cuter! Pick a belt with a shiny buckle for a touch of shimmer.
5. Throw on a blazer to be instantly ready for a night on the town with the girls.
Bodysuits are a very sophisticated choice for date night or a night dancing with your besties. If you’d prefer to cover up a bit, a slouchy black blazer is an extremely chic way to style your bodysuit.
6. Drape your jean jacket over your shoulders for stylish magazine editor vibes.
This combination has been a hit for the coastal crowd of magazine editors and movie stars, but is a totally wearable look for anyone. Simply drape your jean jacket over your bodysuit, throw on a pair of black leggings, and step into some stylish mules. From jean jackets to bombers to glossy leather, trendy jackets of any kind work for this type of pairing.
7. Play with silhouettes by putting on loose boyfriend jeans over a striped bodysuit.
Boyfriend jeans complement a bodysuit perfectly, creating a beautiful, balanced outfit. The addition of stripes creates a little bit of visual fun that can be dressed up or down. For a day of errands, put on a pair of white kicks. For date night, swap them out for a pair of stilettos!
8. Pull on a pair of high waisted jeans to define your waist with seamless style.
Boyfriend jeans shouldn’t get to have all the fun! Boutique jeans, especially high waisted jeans, practically beg for being paired with a bodysuit. Find a pair that hit just at the narrowest part of your waist for a super flattering silhouette. Finish the look with a long statement necklace and block heel booties.
9. Be workday ready by layering your bodysuit underneath a pair of slouchy trousers.
Whether you’re back at the office or spending time working from home, bodysuits are totally professional enough to wear while on the job. To take this look to the next level, style your bodysuit underneath a pair of slouchy trousers, put on a pair of pumps and swoop your hair back into a sophisticated chignon.
