While often cast off as a wardrobe basic, bodysuits are fashion’s real MVP these days. They elevate the look of worn-in jeans, layer neatly under skirts, and can also double as the perfect T-shirt.
Thanks to their popularity these days, shopping for bodysuits is easier than ever — more designers have factored them into their collections in styles that don’t look like they’re crossing over into lingerie territory. Check out five bodysuits to reach for now in New York City stores below.
Calder Blake Bianca bodysuit, $69 at Bird (203 Grand Street)
Calder Blake’s Bianca bodysuit is a godsend for those hot days when swimsuits seem like the only viable option in your closet.
Rennie bodysuit, $133 at Swords-Smith (98 S 4th St)
With the help of this bodysuit, pairing two loosely-fit separates together looks relaxed instead of sloppy.
Crewneck bodysuit, $140 at Theory (40 Gansevoort Street)
Achieve the staple white-tee-and-jeans look without the fuss via Theory’s all-white bodysuit.
AOTC off-shoulder bodysuit, $275 at Curve (57 Bond Street)
Create multiple outfits by mixing AOTC’s off-shoulder bodysuit with high-waisted jeans, culottes, or A-line minis.
Alix Howard bodysuit, $295 at Journelle (3 E 17th St)
