As you may have noticed, I’m really into the bodysuit trend. I basically live in high-waisted bottoms and I more often than not steer clear of the crop top which limits my top options. I definitely like to accentuate my waist (who doesn’t) but it’s hard when you’re wearing a baggy blouse. And I adore baggy tees. Bodysuits have been a complete game changer for me because they let my jeans hug my waist and I don’t have to show any skin (yay!).
I recently purchased this black bodysuit from Forever 21 and have been living in it. Honestly, I’m always hesitant to order from Forever 21 because the quality of the items can be a gamble. But I wasn’t sure if I’d actually like bodysuits so I thought I shouldn’t spend a lot on one just in case. Turns out I love them (see above) and this one is also surprisingly really well made for only $9!!! Carli has a similar bodysuit from American Eagle (see in this post) and in general American Eagle has really well-made pieces but this particular item has already ripped at the snaps. While my Forever 21 bodysuit is still going strong!
Since this bodysuit is black you can easily pair it with patterned pants or distressed denim like I did. I love the juxtaposition of the body-hugging top with loose denim. I broke up the outfit with a thin belt that has the prettiest gold detailing. And of course, I finished off the outfit with my favorite baby heels.
I wore this outfit to happy hour but it could easily be transitioned for date night. This black bodysuit is honestly probably the most versatile thing I own!
