There’s something utterly sultry about a lace bodysuit. In general, bodysuits always cut a chic shape: they hug the best parts of you close—and you don’t have to worry about tucking them in. But a lace bodysuit offers a sophisticated and sexy take on the staple.
While you may think that this clothing item falls solely in the realm of “lingerie” or “boudoir attire,” there are plenty of ways to style a lace bodysuit for any scene. With a pair of jeans, it becomes an elevated take on a T-shirt for casual wear. Tuck it into some leather trousers, and you’ve got a rock’n’roll vibe that won’t quit. But where to begin?
If you’re just a girl standing in front of your closet, asking it to come up with some stylish lace bodysuit outfits for you, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to wear a lace bodysuit for any occasion, with items that are probably already in your wardrobe.
As with all outfits, you first have to consider what you wear underneath—aka, your sustainable lingerie. Bodysuits are typically lined, and are meant to be worn directly against the skin. That being said, you may prefer some extra layers if you’re wearing yours out in public. If so, turn to some time-tested tools of the trade.
These underthings will help you maintain some distance without adding bulk. Protect your skin with:
When you’re getting dressed for the colder months, there comes a moment of reckoning: when do you put your pantyhose on, and what comes first?
Fear not. We have the official order of operations at ready:
Your bodysuit does double duty when worn over tights. Not only does it cover your top half—it also keeps your pantyhose from riding down in the middle of the day. In return, a pair of high-rise pantyhose can help you achieve an even smoother silhouette.
Now that you know the first (and most essential) steps to feeling confident and looking gorgeous in your lace bodysuit, let’s dive into some contemporary styling tricks. After all, what good is looking good in your bodysuit if you can’t take it out on the town?
If you’re planning to take your bodysuit for a hot night out on the town, try pairing it with a pair of skin-clinging leather pants. This look is a rock’n’roll-inspired style that looks particularly chic in all-black. Here’s what you need to complete the look:
Take a style lesson from the mullet and keep the party in the back. If you have an open-backed sweater hanging in your closet, you might not be ready to wear it with a fully exposed bare back—but wearing a T-shirt underneath loses some of the sex appeal. Enter the lace bodysuit.
A sweater in any material will work for this look. Consider options in:
The key to this outfit is keeping the rest of the pieces fairly minimal, so no one expects the surprise sultriness when you turn your back. After all, you know how to keep everyone on their toes.
On a typical day, you may just throw on a T-shirt and a pair of jeans, then sashay your way out the door. But today is not that day. You want something a bit more daring. So swap out your basic T-shirt for a lace bodysuit and prepare yourself for a casual look that still somehow oozes va-va-voom vivacity.
Complete the look with:
The look is just as easy to rock as a T-shirt and jeans, but puts your curves front and center.
One of the oldest style tricks in the fashion books is unexpected pairings. So what’s the furthest away you could get from sexy, lacy, ladylike boudoir? Camouflage.
Pairing your lace bodysuit with an army jacket or cargo pants is an entirely of-the-moment styling hack. But this isn’t your typical G.I. Jane look. Pick one army-inspired item and style your outfit around that:
Finish the fashion look with some chic ankle boots, and give yourself a salute in the mirror on the way out the door.
When you’re looking to put together a ladylike and sophisticated look, pull out your classiest high-waisted skirt and pair it with your lace bodysuit. The high-waisted silhouette of the skirt creates a seamless, timeless, and flattering silhouette. Depending on your mood (and the temperature outside), you can do a:
This is a perfect styling trick for when you’re sick of wearing the same Little Black Dress to all your events. Although you’ll know that you’re wearing separates, everyone will be dying to know where you got that unique dress.
When it comes time to dress up, and the last thing you want is to wear a dress, the answer is simple—throw on your favorite suit. The lace of your bodysuit is a perfect antidote to the formal business vibes a suit may bring. Throw on your favorite bodysuit, then:
As a bonus, when you wear a bodysuit instead of a button-up, you’ll never have to worry about wrinkles ruining the crisp appearance of your suit.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how you style your lace bodysuit. What’s going to really sell the look is how you feel in it. So make sure you’re starting your outfit with a lace bodysuit that makes you feel like a million bucks.
