Style your Black Leotard for Various Occasions

black leotard, a beloved staple in every dancer's wardrobe, is not limited to the confines of the dance studio. Its versatility allows you to create stylish and fashionable looks for various occasions beyond dance class. There is nothing classier and sassier than a black leotard that hugs your body perfectly, enhances your curves and spices up your overall look.

If you're tired of the hassle of tucking and re-tucking your t-shirt/shirt, then leotards or bodysuits are your best friend. We've dotted down some of our favorite ways to style your black leotard that seamlessly transition from dance class to the street, making it a must-have in your wardrobe. 

  1. The Chic Gal - Everyone loves the classic effortlessly chic look - pair your black leotard with high-waisted jeans or tailored trousers, accessorize it with statement belts and sleek sneakers, ankle boots or black heels. Layer it with a cropped and sunglasses for a touch of cool swagger.
  2. The Fitness Diva - Combine comfort and style by embracing the athleisure fusion trend. Pair your black leotard with leggings or joggers for a sporty vibe. Layer with a loose-fitting hoodie or a bomber jacket and complete the look with trendy sneakers. This outfit effortlessly blends comfort and fashion for a relaxed yet stylish appearance - perfect for a gym to casual day out wear.
  3. The Busy-Bee - For the lady who runs the house, pair your black leotard with some track pants for running errands. This look is perfect for wearing around the house, going out for some chores, or meeting a friend for coffee. Then to switch it up to the boss lady mode, pair your black leotard with formal trousers and a matching blazer for a work-ready look. With its clean, tailored appearance, you won’t have to worry about it coming untucked and looking sloppy. Add some pumps and a simple, chic belt to pull the outfit together. 
  4. The Street Savvy Miss - Unleash your inner fashionista by adding an edgy twist to your black leotard. Layer it with a leather or faux fur jacket and team it up with distressed jeans or a pleated skirt. Enhance the street style edge with chunky boots or high-top sneakers. Don't forget to accessorize with statement sunglasses and bold jewelry.
  5. The Bling It Gal - You love all things glitter and glamorous. The simple black bodysuit can be styled up to make you instagram ready. Pair with delicate gold or silver jewellery, a flowy pleated skirt and shiny heels. Accessorize it with a jeweled clutch and you are ready to go!
  6. Boho Chic - Create a bohemian-inspired look by pairing your black leotard with a flowing maxi skirt or wide-leg palazzo pants. Choose prints, textures, or lace detailing for an added boho touch. Layer with a crochet cardigan or a kimono, and complete the look with strappy sandals or ankle boots. Add bohemian-inspired accessories like layered necklaces and a wide-brimmed hat.

The humble black bodysuit is perfect for every occasion. Experiment with layering options to create unique looks - cute shorts and a hat for the perfect beach holiday, or layer your black leotard with a button-up shirt or a sheer blouse for a touch of sophistication for a night out. Play with different textures and colors to create eye-catching combinations. It is not just dancewear -you can wear it for yoga, pilates, aerial or any other sporty activity, or you can dress down for a relaxed day, or glam up for a night out. Embrace your creativity, experiment with different pieces in your wardrobe, and make a fashion statement with a black bodysuit wherever you go.
