Too bored for a dress and too lazy to button up our Levi’s, nothing is easier than lounging around in a onesie. Whether it’s a body-hugging catsuit or a baggy jumpsuit, being able to sit and stand for hours without dealing with the chafing around our legs or tucking in our tee is heavenly.
Ditto with not being able to deal with the general anxiety of fearing a Marilyn moment when wearing a skirt or a dress. Though the only con is having to take extra time getting yourself dressed after you pee in public toilets, a onesie is the best thing your closet can ever thank you for. Effortless ease meets elegant grace with clean silhouettes that lengthen the legs while it slenderises the arms.
Here are our top 10 picks:
Curve-hugging, waist-snatching and cropped at the calf, this sexy catsuit is perfectly made for lounging at home or sipping coffee at a cafe. Though it looks like any other matte black catsuit, it’s made with a cosy ribbed knit that can be easily washed by hand. Pair it with mules and a leather jacket for a Sandra Dee inspired look.
If you were wondering who was responsible for putting Rihanna in a leopard print catsuit, the mystery is finally solved. Designed by LaQuan Smith, this mesh onesie is the closest thing you can get to a totally important designer’s iconic leopard print catsuit. Although wearing it alone can only look good at photoshoots, pap shots or Halloween, it looks phenomenal when paired with a plain black silky slip dress and platform boots.
Made in Bali with love, this crepe culotte jumpsuit features ruffled straps, a shirred back, pleated bustline and a built-in belt for the ultimate staycation look. Hitting straight at the calves for taller folks, it will look amazing with block heeled sandals and a straw bag. But for the petite ladies, it’ll graze directly at the ankles, which will be styled with naked sandals to lengthen legs.
The Runaways is turning 10, but its iconic fashion legacy is not to be slept on. If you recalled Dakota Fanning’s denim jumpsuit, we found a 2020 version that’s equally fun, funky and retro! Channel your inner rockstar with cowboy boots, a studded leather jacket and a hip belt. Heavily layered shag haircut optional.
Fitted at the bust and flared at the leg, this linen jumpsuit is an iconic runway piece from its Fall 2020 show that you can proudly own. Blended with linen, this jumpsuit will keep you extra ventilated throughout the hottest days. Pair it with wedge sandals, a Bottega Veneta's Pouch bag and gold hoop earrings.
Command attention at a Zoom meeting with this stunning simple sand pinstripe jumpsuit. Featuring a double breast, shoulder pads and a peak lapel collar, it looks sharp when paired with a pair of hoop earrings or diamond studs. Top it off with a red lip to make all eyes on you.
As one of Australia’s under the radar brands, it’s becoming a cult fave among celebs from Hailey Bieber to Addison Rae. Stay comfy in acid wash black denim to take you from matcha hopping in the arvo to grabbing a feed with your girlfriends for the evening. Style it with platform sneakers, rainbow jewellery and a scrunchie for a Jennie-inspired look. Extra points if you have a Chanel bag or vintage Chanel jewellery.
Tiger King may be 2020’s guilty-pleasure hit filled with problematic characters with a stranger than fiction storyline, yet it lives up to the hype with equally show stopping fashions. Mixing leopard and floral prints can be challenging, but if Carole Baskin can make it hot, so can you! Crafted with recycled polyester, it’s built in with UV 50 to block the sun’s rays while you go out to exercise. Pair it with white sneakers and a mini backpack.
Straight off the rack from NYC, Orseund Iris never fails to deliver on style, function and luxury. Though it has a baggier fit, this silhouette is actually feminine with its cinched waist and leg-lengthening cut. You can wear this with a kitten heel at Sunday brunch to thick chunky soled sneakers on casual Fridays. Top it off with a top handle bag and a Vivienne Westwood pearl choker.
Fresher than a worn-in white tee, nothing beats being able to walk around town in freshly pressed off-white bodysuit. Snaking down from the collarbone to the bustline, big pearly buttons are elegantly placed to hug the curves of your body. Style it with baggy distressed jeans, a pre-layered chain necklace, Tiffany bracelet and combat boots for a grunge meets preppy look.
