Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Ah, the black bodysuit—that key wardrobe essential that makes layering and tucking seamless. During transitional seasons, turtleneck and longer-sleeve versions are the ideal base layer; in the scorching summer heat, you'll be reaching for the tank and short-sleeve styles again and again. The black bodysuit is a versatile staple that can be worn alone, elevating denim and skirts in a sleek and subtle way, or worn under sweaters, cardigans and coats for a no-budge layered look. On our list, you'll find everything you need, from flirty cut-out bodysuit styles perfect for date night to a convertible design that can be worn all year long, no matter the weather.
