Bella Hadid is a busy girl who’s got an endless list of places to go, which means multiple outfit changes are necessary. Although the young supermodel can easily sport a completely new ensemble every time she steps out (and often does!), she recently surprised us when she attended two different parties in two different outfits that incorporated the same pieces. Yes, you heard that right: She made a couple hero pieces work double-time for her in the span of an evening. Now, that’s impressive.
Bella—who is the face of Dior Beauty—donned a dramatic look for the brand’s party, strolling in in a plunging tuxedo vest top, floor-grazing tulle skirt, glitzy drop earrings and box clutch. She finished the ensemble off with a veiled beret and rectangular shades. We must admit that this is a bit tough to pull off IRL, but we’re totally adopting her trick in taking an evening outfit’s staples and transforming them into a more low-key vibe—post-soirée, she swapped the skirt for straight-leg jeans and a wide belt. Whether you’ve got festivities back to back or just need ideas on how wear after-hour pieces multiple times to make the most of them, read on for tips on how to make a black bodysuit work for fancy fetes and GNOs, inspired by Bella’s genius switcheroo.

A black bodysuit will save you when you're stumped on evening wear. It's the perfect basic you can build upon for a dressier outfit. Wear it with a lace tulle paneled skirt to channel Bella's romantic flair. Accessorize with essential black pumps, box clutch and sparkly baubles.

For occasions that are less lavish, trade in the skirt for your go-to straight-leg jeans to style with the bodysuit. Cinch the waist with a wide belt. Complete the effortlessly cool, sexy look with the same shoes and bag.
