Shop the Trend: Bodysuits

Although the word and idea of a bodysuit might conjure thoughts of everything from dance leotards or ice skating costumes to 80’s and 90’s flashbacks, they’ve come a very (very) long way and both the fast fashion (Zara and Topshop) and designer worlds (Balmain, Nina Ricci and Thakoon) are creating a slew of options worthy of a sartorial debut. Often sexy with intriguing fabrications there’s a style for everyone to love. For something simple yet seductive, Intermix provides a long-sleeve but belly button low neckline with lace up detail, Alix combines two of this season’s hottest trends (bare shoulders and flared sleeves) while Nina Ricci and David Koma utilize high-fashion design aspects like 3D sleeves made of calf hair, all over embellishments and bodices full of fringe into their designs. And while they all would be great with a pair of high-waisted jeans, they all work seamlessly with everything from cigarette trousers and suede shorts to culottes, overalls and midi skirts. So allow us to change your mind with our selects of favorite bodysuits in the slideshow above and let us know which one you’d be most likely to wear this season.
