Shape Up For The Return Of The Bodysuit Trend

Go figure!

It’s sleek, it’s sexy and most importantly, it solves the common fashion woe that many of us face in keeping our tops neatly tucked into our bottoms. So we were more than thrilled to learn that the figure-flattering bodysuit trend has made a comeback recently. Now, we're excited to explore different outfit possibilities with this versatile piece. From classic black designs to flirty lace-detailed numbers, here are five must-have bodysuit designs to shop for. Plus, we reveal tips on how you can wear them stylishly.


All is right with white




Enter the cooler version of the basic white tee: the sleek white bodysuit with thin shoulder straps. Fashion influencer Claire Weeranund nails the casual-cool aesthetic with her ‘Beck’ bodysuit from Thai clothing brand Rush, glowy makeup, oversized gold hoops and lived-in grey sweatpants. We reckon it’s the ultimate stay-at-home 'fit that will help make us look more fashionable than frumpy.

Finally, inject a bit of sporty luxury into your ensemble with AlexanderWang.T’s jersey track pants, which are printed with the label’s logo.


Shoulder smoulder




Indulge in a little '90s hip-hop-inspired moment with a one-shoulder black bodysuit, as seen on Chicago-based blogger Danielle. Here, she completes her casual get-up with a pair of cat-eye frames and a pair of high-waisted paper bag shorts. Beauty-wise, she sports thick arched brows, a rose lip and a low bun. This look is perfect for those warm, humid summer nights when you wish to look put-together without melting in the heat.

Mood for nude




Can’t quite decide on what to wear for brunch? Do like gorgeous Cambodian fashion influencer KimBouy Tang and opt for a nude-coloured bodysuit. Donning a bodysuit that matches your natural skin tone helps you to create the perfect ‘foundation’ in building any stylish ensemble. Pair it with a long pleated skirt and a French beret for trips to the library, or go casual just like KimBouy with jeans, layered jewellery and a trendy shoulder bag.
