In our on-going look at Wardrobe Staples, aka things everyone must own, we can’t address 2016-style without automatically jumping to the bodysuit. Thanks to Kim Kardashian and the influence of her street style, this simple piece of clothing has gone from undergarment to front row, and we must say we are quite thrilled with this shift.

What makes the bodysuit such a key player in every wardrobe, and something all women should have a their disposal, is it’s ability to maintain the silhouette and integrity of a look. No lumps or untucked corners to worry about – this style is seamless, sexy and clean. Since the piece is originally rooted in shape wear, it has a natural ability to slim everything in just the right places.

We love that the bodysuit is so versatile and can be worn in lieu of any shirt. Dress it up, dress it down, and take it from day to night. There are truly endless options for styling this piece. Think office wear paired with a blazer and tailored trouser, or sexy date look with skinny jeans and a classic pump. For more casual options try slipping it on under a pair of denim shorts or a summer skirt, finished off with a pair of gladiator sandals. The options are endless.

We recommend owning the bodysuit in as many colors and styles as possible since you will never be disappointed with it’s performance.
