10+ Ways to Style Your Sleeveless Bodysuit for Any Occasion

There are little black dresses, your favorite pair of denim, and now – your go-to bodysuit. Like any good wardrobe basic, a bodysuit is meant to mix and match with the rest of your closet staples.

From the office hustle to your next getaway, a sleeveless bodysuit is a modern wardrobe essential that should keep you polished yet comfy. This versatile piece can be styled up or down for most occasions. Here are some tried and true ways to style your bodysuit:

1. Casual 

Sleeveless bodysuits are great for a casual daytime look, especially on a hot or humid day. Pair your bodysuit with some flowy linen pants and some Birkenstocks for a simple fit. 

Choose a denim cargo and your favorite chucks for a relaxed, casual look, or opt for a fitted midi-skirt and some strappy sandals for a slightly elevated summertime style.

2. Vacation Chic

Tuck your one-piece wonder into a flowy maxi for a comfortable yet chic vacation outfit. Go bold and infuse some personality by pairing a cobalt blue or chartreuse bodysuit, with a fun print, allowing you to bring some splash to your wardrobe. 

Finish the look with thong sandals, a wide-brimmed hat, and your favorite oversized sunnies (We hear the SPF calling already!)

3. Preppy

We can’t resist a good jeans and oversized blazer combo. Wear your sleeveless bodysuit with tailored straight-leg jeans and loafers for a smart casual look that can be dressed up or down. 

Choose a comfy boyfriend cardigan and your favorite team cap to add some character and maybe even a pop of color.

4. Brunch

Our Wildly Black bodysuits are designed intentionally with fabrics that are good for the environment and afford you some stretch so you won’t be uncomfortable after bottomless brunch.

Pair your sleeveless bodysuit with a pair of curved denim and a cropped jacket to accentuate your waist. Add sambas (or your favorite sneaker) and a tote so that you can pick something up from the farmer’s market later. It’s the weekend, have fun and accessorize with something you wouldn’t normally wear.

5. Business Casual/Professional

Whether it’s a work dinner or another day at the office, sleeveless bodysuits are perfect for professionals. 

Tuck a sleek, neutral-toned bodysuit into a pencil skirt with some Mary Janes and simple jewelry for a summertime office fit. Add a blazer and a perfectly tied silk scarf for that buttoned-up look. If you’re looking for something more comfortable, grab a high-waisted pair of pleated trousers, a thin belt, and some ballet flats for office-ready casual. 

6. Night Out

Nothing says ‘night out’ like the perfect silhouette! Pair your sleeveless bodysuit with a satin A-line skirt  (midi or maxi). Reach for those stiletto sandals and a chunky necklace, gold or silver works, and nothing can stand in your way!

7. Happy Hour

To spice up your sleeveless bodysuit, layer it under a loose sheer or mesh top. Pair with your favorite denim and a strappy sandal for a polished look. 

8. Rainy Day

Whether you’re staying in or going out, rainy days call for cozy, breathable fits. Throw on a long cardigan or well-worn oversized denim jacket over your bodysuit with comfy leggings or sweatpants for a comfortable yet stylish fit that’s perfect for running errands or curling up with a good book.

9. Athleisure

Pair your sleeveless bodysuit with joggers and sneakers. Add a baseball cap with some personality for a trendy athleisure vibe. Dress it up with some accessories and a casual hairstyle and you’ll master the off-duty model look in no time.

10. Workout Class

Bodysuits are for so much more than your everyday outfit! From pilates to your regular gym, you can wear sleeveless bodysuits to your next workout class too. Grab some high-waisted compression leggings or yoga pants and add a zip-up hoodie for a sweat-ready look. 

Other Ways to Style Your Sleeveless Bodysuit

These are not even half of the styling possibilities for your sleeveless bodysuit. The only limit is your imagination. Here are some other ways to style this wardrobe staple:

  • Play with textures by layering knit or crocheted dresses, tops, and/or bottoms with your bodysuit.

  • Keep it cool and casual by pairing your bodysuit with your favorite summer bottoms. Add sandals or slides for a laid-back, sunny day fit.

  • Embrace the versatility of coordinating sets by wearing your bodysuit with a matching summer set. Opt for breezy linen or soft cotton sets that include shorts or long, flowy pants. These sets are staples that can easily be styled with our sleeveless bodysuits for a cohesive look.

    Experiment with these ideas to find combinations that best suit your personal style and the occasion.
