Exactly How to Wear a Bodysuit This Fall

As we begin to prep our wardrobes for fall, we’re not letting go of one of our favorite wardrobe essentials all year-round. We’re talking about the bodysuit, that style staple that will take you through morning, noon, and night, from the office with a suit to evening drinks with a statement skirt, and even weekend brunch plans when paired with vintage denim. As the weather begins to shift, however, so too does our arsenal of bodysuit looks that we have been rocking for the past few humid months. Soon, gone will be the cutoff shorts, the eyelet miniskirts, and totally sheer dresses (for those daring souls among us). Instead, we’re going to be trading in those bodysuit styling pieces for tailored trousers, structured silk faille skirts, vintage overalls, and high-waisted jeans alike.

Ahead of one of our favorite fashion seasons of the year, here are 15 looks we’re going to be copying when it comes to upping our bodysuit game, plus 10 styles we’re currently adding to our collections. Be ready to get inspired and—of course—shop.

Add a bodysuit to that Canadian tuxedo to keep your lines slim underneath the bulky denim textures.

Opt for basic black for a denim look that you can take out at night.

When layering your bodysuit under a slip dress, consider a style that isn't going to bunch and untuck, like a slim turtleneck style.

When looking for that perfect no-fuss top, seek a bodysuit with extra silhouetted detail, like a knotted or tied front.

When layering, it's best to cut down on the tucked-in fuss, so a shoulder-draped coat look is the perfect excuse to pull out that bodysuit this fall.

This fall, seek a bodysuit that's more original, like this one with a ribbed knit and front buttons.

Consider a sheer lace style when making a tailored suit a little edgier.

Go for a high neck and expose your shoulders for that extra element of a Canadian tuxedo.

When layering, bodysuits are a must, as they won't untuck or bunch as you raise or lower your warms, sit down, stand up, or just generally go about your day.

Add some wow factor with a bodysuit in that pattern we love to consider an elegant neutral: leopard.

Turn that gingham sundress into something more fall-friendly with the addition of a long-sleeve bodysuit underneath.

With midi skirts that button, tie, or wrap, a no-fuss bodysuit is going to be the most elegant and tailored top you can find.

Just because a bodysuit is simple to wear doesn't mean it needs to be simple to look at. Grab a sheer one with an asymmetrical silhouette that will have jaws dropping.

Slip a bodysuit or leotard underneath your plaid skirt for a nostalgic take on the back-to-school outfit you remember.

Add something extra to that shift dress by layering a lighter turtleneck bodysuit underneath.

Shop the trend:

With the above fall looks, there's no chance we're ever giving up on the bodysuit this season.
