How to style a bodysuit

What do I wear? It is a question we ask ourselves on a daily basis and in many cases, we are stuck for ideas. There are so many different styles and options for what we can wear. One of the popular staples for any wardrobe at the moment is a bodysuit, which are also often referred to as a teddy.

The great thing about bodysuits is that you can change the style of what you are going for depending on what you wear with the bodysuit. The bodysuit is the main undergarment of the outfit and then you can swap and change the pieces that go with it. It is the perfect staple for both summer and winter.

Check out some of our favourite ways to style a bodysuit.

Layer with a blazer

A blazer is a great way to dress your bodysuit up. Wear with a pair of tailored pants and a blazer for a more sophisticated look. You can choose a blazer in a simple black to look professional or to make more of a statement you can wear a brighter colour blazer as a stand out.

Add in a chunky necklace and you are ready for a night on the town.

Denim Jacket

For a more casual look, throw a denim jacket on over the top. The denim jacket look gives a cool and casual look that is perfect for everyday wear. This look will suit going out to do a bit of shopping, a catch up for coffee with friends or even just for lazing about at home.

Denim comes in a few different shades so you can choose the shade of blue that you are most comfortable in wearing.

High waisted jeans

This is a simple and iconic look that is one of the most favourite among those who wear bodysuits.

Simply wear with a pair of high waisted jeans and you are ready to do.

The great thing about high waisted jeans is that you are able to then dress the look up with a jacket or jewelry or keep it nice and cool and casual.

Jeans come in many different colours now so you can stick with the standard blue or venture our in something a bit different like a pair of white or black jeans.

With a pair of shorts

A great summer combination is your bodysuit and a simple pair of shorts.

You can dress an outfit up by wearing a nice pair of high waisted shorts and adding in a pair of high heel shoes. You can also achieve a simple causal look by wearing a pair of loose shorts and sandals with your bodysuits.

Shorts can even be worn with a pair of stockings or tights underneath in the cooler months.


Another great thing to remember when creating your outfit is that you can also change the style of the piece by adding in different accessories. With any of the above outfit choices you can still either dress them up or make them more casual just by the adding of a couple of simple accessories.

Chokers, necklaces and earrings are a great way to distinguish the look that you are going for. These are items that people will all see as soon as they look at you and they will make a statement.

Bracelets and belts are also different accessories that can be used to change the look that you are going for.


And then there are shoes! The shoes that you wear will tell a lot about the style that you are going for.

If you decide to wear a pair of high heels or wedges it shows that you are going for a more formal and stylish look. A pair of shiny black pumps can make a world of difference to your outfit and make you the stand out in the room.

For a more casual look wearing a pair of sandals or sneakers will make you not only look casual but also stylish and don’t forget comfy!

Bodysuits have endless opportunities for how you can dress them.
