One of the hottest style trends of the year is the bodysuit and this sleek style has been spotted in the runway collection of designers like David Koma and brands such as Theory. A bodysuit is a garment that is similar to a one piece swimsuit and usually has snaps at the bottom. They are a very versatile piece of clothing to wear, thanks to their flattering body hugging quality, their layering capabilities and the range of different styles and fabrics.
The right bodysuit will work as the perfect base on which you can build your outfit on and you will be able to wear it in a number of ways. Unlike a t-shirt or tank they will never bunch up or become untucked. You will be able to wear this bodysuit in many different ways – pairing it with high-waisted jeans and a cardigan tones it down while a tailored trouser and a blazer give it a sophisticated edge.
So if you are looking for ideas on how to wear your bodysuit, here is some inspiration to get you started:
1. Casual Weekend Look – Bodysuit paired with Denim Shorts or Jeans
A simple bodysuit can be ideal for a casual look to wear on the weekend, whether you are hanging out with friends, going shopping or visiting a farmer’s market. Pair your bodysuit with some well-fitting denim shorts and wear a loose cotton button down shirt overtop.
You can leave the outer shirt unbuttoned or even tie it up at the bottom. It’s a cool and casual look that you can take with you anywhere. It is the perfect solution for wearing your sheer and open weave shirts, because you will be able to see the bodysuit peeking out from underneath. If it is a little colder, you can swap out the denim shorts for boyfriend jeans and the cotton button down shirt for a cardigan. Keep your makeup and your jewellery simple and wear your hair loose or in a low ponytail. Why not try the Cindy Black Bodysuit, which is an eye-catching sexy bodysuit with criss-cross in the back? It looks amazing with denim shorts or jeans on, its cozy and comfortable and comes in both black and white colors!
2. Sophisticated Workplace Look – Pencil Skirt and a Blazer
Want to wear your bodysuit for the office? Choose a bodysuit that is a little more demure rather than revealing and wear it underneath a slim fitting pencil skirt and a well-tailored blazer. The bodysuit will add less bulk under the outfit than a shirt or a blouse would and it doesn’t need to be tucked in. You will look elegant, professional and polished. The ideal hairstyle to complete this look is a polished updo, such as a neat bun or a high ponytail.For example, check out the Francisca Black Laced Up Sleeveless Bodysuit, paired up with an elegant bodycon pencil skirt. Use a blazer on top for a more conservative look.
3. Bohemian Chic Look – Long Flowing Skirt and Jewellery
To create a cool hippie look with your bodysuit, wear it with a long flowing skirt and combine it with a lot of bangles and necklaces. The tightness of the bodysuit will be a great contrast to the loose flowing fabric of the skirt. If you have long hair you can wear it loose with beachy waves or weave it into a long braid.
Don’t be afraid to layer several different necklaces and bracelets over-top of each other, but make sure that they have elements that tie them together such as a particular colour scheme. If you are looking for inspiration, take a look at some photos of 70s fashions to get some ideas for your bohemian look.
The ideal bodysuit to go with this look would be the beige lace up Dreams Bodysuit, which also has the trendy new lace up detail in the front.
4. Sexy Night Out Look – Leather Pants or Skirt and Heels
So what should you wear with your bodysuit when you want to get dolled up for a sexy night out? A bodysuit is perfect with an incredibly tight skirt or sexy leather pair of pants. There is no need to tuck in a bulky shirt or worry about it riding up while you dance, your bodysuit will cling tightly to your curves all night long. Add a pair of killer heels to the outfit and all eyes will be on you when you are on the dance floor.
The Valentina Long Sleeve Black Lace Backless Top Bodysuit is great option for going out, it is made with a sheer nude fabric and black lace and it looks timeless and elegant. It comes in both black and white colors!
5. Retro Look – High-Waisted Jeans
The high waist denim look that was popular in the 1970s and 1980s is back in style again and these jeans can be very flattering because they accentuate your waist – the slimmest part of your body. If you have a perfect pair of high waist jeans you don’t want to cover them up with a long top – so wear them with a bodysuit to show them off. This sleek look is very flattering and you can play up the retro style even more by rocking big voluminous hair and hoop earrings.
These are just a few ways that you can rock the sexy and cool bodysuit trend!
