Jumpsuits are as fun to wear as they sound: playful, sexy and elegant (and often all at once) these single piece suits are anything but one dimensional. You can wear them practically anywhere, and just about any way. However, there are some ways to wear jumpsuits that are truly sensationally stylish.
Read on to find out how you can amp up your jumpsuit game with these simple and inspired styling moves.
Pair Classic with Saucy
Juxtaposition is one of the most powerful styling tools, and it works wonderfully when it comes to jumpsuits. Not many women have more than one or two jumpsuits, and at least one of those is often more classic in nature: straight lines, flattering fit, neutral colour and/or simple pattern. One of the best things about this timeless choice is its ability to transcend style boundaries. This is why we love pairing a classic jumpsuit with fashion-forward accessory, like a corset belt, or a bold, chunky choker or a pair of patent leather studded ankle boots.
This is one of the oldest tricks in the styling books, but one that we often overlook. It’s so easy so do, too: wear a strong leather necklace or bracelet with a whimsical satin jumpsuit, or a faux fur vest with a cotton-blend jumpsuit. Get even more inventive and peruse lace bodysuits to wear under a jumpsuit with a plunging neckline. These differences in materials add an eye-catching interest to your look that will be hard not to admire.
A simple change in your hair-do can completely transform your look - and it’s by far your most affordable, most transformable accessory. Wearing your hair down and tousled will give a jumpsuit a more casual, playful look. Wear it up in a neat French roll or ballet bun to pin together a more polished, posh appearance.
Jumpsuits are a lot of material, and a great way to balance out this heft is to wear complimentary refined accessories - especially on the bottoms. Whether you have a wide-leg or slim-leg jumpsuit, you want don’t want to add more weight to your lower half. Strappy, sexy sandals can do wonders to lighten up your legs (and add some sophisticated sexy appeal to your look).
Likewise, if the top of your jumpsuit is scarce, you can use a chunky piece of statement jewellery to even-out the look and add personality and panache to your appearance.
Even though these tips are specific, there is a lot of room to move within them, meaning you can add your own personality to our ideas. That’s why these solid fashion suggestions will have you set up for style success, every time.
