6 Ways to Wear Bodysuits for Women
This is a bodysuit appreciation post 👏 When Betty x Bow opened our online doors less than two short years ago, we did it with a few really great bodysuits in our closet. Today, we thought we would share a little “how to style your bodysuit” inspiration for those of you who haven’t converted to the bodysuit lifestyle yet. Let us just assure you: once you try your first Betty x Bow bodysuit, you will never want to reach for anything else again.
Before we dive into bodysuit outfit ideas, here are 3 bodysuits to buy from BXB (in case you don't have one you love yet!). First, we have the Shea bodysuit with a sweet little bowback detail. Then, we have the Isabel - a favourite here at Betty x Bow with a crossback that feels feminine and still covers your bra! Finally, we have the Elaine but if you are in love with her long sleeve details, you better act fast because she's on sale for fall!
1) Pair Your Bodysuit with Shorts & A Jean Jacket for the Perfect Summer Outfit
The perfect summer outfit doesn't exist... or does it? Although we love to get fancy on the regular, if there is anything the last two years have shown us it's that we want to look comfy AND cute on the regular.
Love those shorts btw? Shop the Molly Paperbag Linen Shorts here.
2) With Jeans & A Leather Jacket for a Night Out
We love a denim jacket for day, and a leather jacket for night. Call us high maintenance (it's fine!). We love how simply switching up your jacket can offer up two different vibes for your bodysuit. Which one is your favourite?
3) With your favourite high-waisted pants & jacket
We don't like to talk about it, but fall is just around the corner. A good bodysuit can take you through the seasons, so if you are looking for the perfect fall outfit for chilly days, it's easy to throw on pants and a nice jacket. We love easy that looks this good.
4) A Black Bodysuit & Black Skirt = GLAM but so comfortable.
Move over LBD, this fresh new combo of the Isabel bodysuit in black paired with the Emma skirt is a whole mood. On top of that, we love how easily this look transitions from summer to winter with a pair of black tights and some closed toed shoes. It's not easy to shop essentials that look just as good in the summer as they do in our Canadian winters!
5) Paired with Joggers for a Cozy Look that's not Sloppy.
We get it, you might want to just wear sweats and a t-shirt to the airport. Or... do you? Maybe you just haven't been introduced to this (much better) alternative. The bodysuit will hold in place so you don't fidget with your shirt on the plane (the WORST feeling ever), but you won't be sacrificing one thread count of comfort.
6) As one of your favourite layers!
Listen, we will shout from the rooftops that a bodysuit can be the star of your outfit all day everyday, but we can't deny how good it looks as a layering piece. Our favourite way to layer would be under our Molly Blouse & Molly Shorts, of course - but we trust your judgement to take it from here!
Adding Bodysuits to Your Capsule Wardrobe
If you’ve tried a bodysuit before and weren’t immediately in love, please give these capsule wardrobe essentials another try. When someone tells me they don’t love bodysuits, it usually comes down to cheap material and a lacklustre design. You probably already know we create feminine & elevated designs over here at Betty x Bow, but now let me introduce Tencel™ Modal fabric - the secret weapon behind BXB bodysuits. I could go on and on about the sustainability reasons I love to use Tencel™ Modal fabric in my designs, but you'll love how buttery soft the material is.
Now, you tell us - how will you wear your bodysuit next? DM us on Instagram and follow along as we always share ways to wear your capsule wardrobe favourites.
