The hottest days of the year are almost over—is it just me or are you so ready to say “bye” to humid days and the accompanying “humid style” (read: frizzy hair and sweat stains)? Needless to say, we’re craving fall and all things fall fashion. Though it’s not quite time to move your plus-size summer clothing into storage, adding a great wear now and later must-have into your wardrobe will help everything you own feel new again. Enter the transitional piece we’re crushing on: the short-sleeve bodysuit.
If you haven’t tried styling a bodysuit, it might be time to give it a try. Here are our top five ways to wear one. Request one from your stylist in your next Dia Box for more inspiration!
The midi skirt, is one of our favorite plus-size skirts because the length is so versatile (it works for both dressy and casual occasions). The midi offers the same on-trend vibe as a maxi, but is great if you’re petite and plus-size. A bodysuit with a snap-front neckline looks great with a midi skirt in the same hue—very ‘90s cool.
Atheleisure is here to stay (there’s no way we’re breaking up with our sweatpants), so why not pair a sleek bodysuit with joggers or tapered sweatpants? Complete the look with statement hoop earrings and sneakers and expect compliments.
Yes, you can wear a bodysuit to work! They’re actually great for work, because they provide a smooth foundation to layer your favorite cardigans and blazers over. Try one with a polo neckline paired with a skinny jean in a dark wash (like our classic Leroy Jean) and complete the look with ankle boots.
A modern look we’re loving right now is all about an easy formula: a plus-size black bodysuit + high-waisted jeans = an instant classic. Pairing a bodysuit with boyfriend jeans or flares also works, especially when you ground this casually chic look with heels. Keep it in mind for date night!
