What is it about bodysuits that have made them the go-to for celebs from Kendall Jenner to Ashley Graham to Lily Aldridge? First off, there’s nothing quite as easy as a one-and-done piece. Second, it’s a staple that’s equally easy to style for a weekend off duty or a night on the town. And last but not least, they just look so good. Bodysuits offer a streamlined, slimming silhouette that helps to accentuate your waist at its narrowest.
While we can partly thank the current ballet trend for the one-piece’s recent spike in popularity, we’ve seen our favorite style stars wear their bodysuits every which way. From laid-back styling with a denim skirt to a dressed-up approach with heels and a leather skirt, there’s more than one way to rock this must-have.
