The bodysuit trend is going nowhere, it is now a staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe. The versatility of a bodysuit is unmatched as it can be paired with any kind of bottoms be it a pair or jeans, a skirt, leggings or formal trousers you will not find something that a bodysuit does not fit in with. If you are the sort of person who does not want to be adjusting and tucking your top in every 5 minutes then this is the answer to your prayers as they will not budge throughout the day. So here are 7 of the most popular bodysuit styles on offer and how you can style them to fit any occasion you need.  

Backless Bodysuit


Luckily we are seeing some good weather so it is the perfect opportunity to style a backless bodysuit, especially in this British weather we do not know how long it will last so make the most of it. There are many styles of backless bodysuits; they can be large cut outs at the back, a plunged scoop back or the floss trend which really opens up and accentuates and shows off the back. For a look fit for a night out on the town add a pair of wide leg trousers, a backless bodysuit with floss detailing and statement shoes, if you want to really steal the show, wear your hair up (if it is long) for a sexy night time look. If you want a more casual look that is ideal for daytime shopping, pair mom jeans with chunky trainers and a modest cut out back bodysuit, drape an oversized blazer over your shoulders and add a cross body bag for a comfy look. 

Turtleneck Bodysuit 

To prepare for the inevitable bad weather which will surely be coming in the autumn a turtleneck bodysuit is an essential. You may already have a few turtle necks lined up in your wardrobe from the past few months of eating outdoors due to the restrictions. They are a wardrobe staple as they can be mixed and matched with blazers, denim, leather and paired under dresses. For a chic workwear look, pair a beige/tan turtleneck with a black blazer and trousers, add a pair of court heels and a leather handbag to look extra professional.

Plunge Bodysuit


You cannot go wrong with a plunge bodysuit especially when you are styling an evening look. I would recommend opting for a lace or satin plunge bodysuit to give a lingerie feel which has risen in popularity and has been seen on many models such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. To style, start with a white midi skirt with a split in the leg, add a vibrant orange plunge bodysuit and clear heels for a look fit for an all day brunch. 

Shirt Bodysuit


I’m sure everyone has had the struggle of having to adjust your shirt after sitting down as it gets untucked however the shirt bodysuit prevents this from happening. Gone are the days of constantly re-tucking your shirt, it is the perfect addition to your work wardrobe. I would suggest opting for basic colours such as black and white for work, for your weekend wardrobe try a pop of colour such as hot pink or emerald green. To get a simple work wear look take a white shirt bodysuit, add darted beige trousers and a matching blazer which is rested on the shoulders for an elegant and chic look perfect for the office. For a day to night look, take an emerald green shirt, add a pair of white wide leg trousers and a pair of espadrilles for a summer look.

Corset Bodysuit

As we’ve seen on the catwalks and Instagram, corsets are taking over. They are an excellent way to Cinch in the waist and accentuate your figure. I would recommend opting for a black and red corset bodysuit as they are easy to style. For a sexy evening look pair a black corset bodysuit with a black midi pencil skirt add pops of red with lipstick, shoes and bag for a super chic look. For a more toned down look pair a pink or red corset with a pair of blue mom jeans and add chunky trainers for the ultimate pub garden look.
