I love jumpsuits. Once you put one on, you’re good to go. This versatile fashion item is great no matter what the season. It also eliminates the effort of finding matching tops and bottoms. One piece and you’re done. They have the ability to be worn in so many different ways depending on how you style them with accessories, shoes and hair. Here are 10 ways you can wear a jumpsuit this season….actually, any season.
1. A White Affair
Keep it fresh and crisp when you wear white. A jumpsuit like this is not only elegant, but the crisp, fresh look of white looks great on everyone. If you’re in a more conservative environment adding a black blazer will tone it down and make it less stark. But for me, I would let this be a stand-alone and just complement it with the right accessories.
2. Cinched Waistline
The right silhouette can flatter all body types. Wear a style that skims the body and flares out into a wide straight leg for a combination of elegance and showing off your curves by emphasizing your waistline.
3. Flowers Galore
Get some flower power by choosing a pretty floral pattern. Whether you like large or small flower patterns, they both give a soft romantic feel to your jumpsuit.
Layer a long vest that is almost as long as your jumpsuit for a modern look. Choose a colour that is much lighter if you want it to stand out. For a lean, cleaner line that can give you the appearance of looking slimmer and a little taller go monochromatic and wear the same colour.
5. Faux Wrap
A jumpsuit with the look of a wrap dress is flattering on everyone. Leave it to the queen of the wrap dress, Diane von Furstenberg to have one that looks great on anyone. The Purdy jumpsuit is a great addition to your wardrobe.
6. Do it in denim
There is something cool, casual and chic about wearing a denim jumpsuit. If you want up dress it up, add accessories and a pair of heels. Cuff the hem to give it a little edge. For a more relaxed feel, put on a pair of sneakers or canvas shoes like the classic Converse Chuck Taylor.
7. The Halter
The deep v-neck halter is a great option when you have an event to attend. Not always appropriate for most working environments, especially if the neckline is extremely low. In general, unless you work in the creative and entertainment industries your boss might think it’s too risqué for work. I’d recommend most leave this style for after hours or weekend affairs.
But you can choose a halter with a higher neckline for a more conservative office-appropriate look. If your office frowns on sleeveless clothing, topping it with a blazer or light cardigan while at work is your best bet. When it’s time to go for cocktails after work just take off jacket and change your accessories.
For the bold and daring woman who wants to show off every curve in her body the skinny jumpsuit, sometimes called a catsuit, leaves no imagination to your figure.
Personally I think this looks best in black for how sleek it can look on most figures.
9. Comfort in Culottes
The warmer temperatures make way for other options like choosing lightweight fabrics or cropped lengths. For a more comfortable alternative the wider, cropped style of a culotte jumpsuit will have you looking fabulous for any occasion.
10. Double Breasted
This retro look has been going strong since the jumpsuits of the eighties. A double-breasted bodice gives your jumpsuit a professional upgrade. The lapel and button details give the look of a blazer without actually wearing one, especially if you wear the long-sleeved version. Pick the sleevless for a more relaxed option and comfort during the warmer seasons.
