When it comes to Lizzo’s performance outfits, she knows how to deliver a show-stopping look each and every time. Though most of her performance wardrobe is made up of leotards and bodysuits, she does occasionally go against the grain in a tulle gown or denim separates. But no matter the look, she makes sure it makes a lasting impression, with metallic color, crystal embellishment, and cut-out details.

While you may not create each look exactly, you can take inspiration from each look for your summer wardrobe. Many of her bustier bodysuits would look perfect paired with off-duty denim or an elegant midi skirt. As for her shorts look, she embraced one of the most underrated ‘90s trends, denim on denim, for an outfit that would work for any casual outing on your summer calendar.

And the sheer variety of performance looks is what’s most inspiring of all. Lizzo has rocked bodysuits with sequins, styles that zip up the front, and even some with metallic fringe that give off total flapper vibes. There’s her mock-T purple long sleeve, her embellished gold number that she topped with a matching cape, and a sheer tattoo bodysuit that she layered under denim.

In short, Lizzo definitely has an onstage uniform, and her collection of performance looks never disappoint. Ahead, see her best performance looks ever. It’s time to get inspired.
