What goes around comes back around, at least that seems to be the case with fashion! The beloved 70s fashion trend of jumpsuits is one such thing that is back again. Jumpsuits are all about easy dressing, you already have most of the outfit put together for you. This makes them the perfect pick for days when you have the don’t-know-what-to-wear dilemma. Of course, that does not mean that they can be worn in just one way. There are many ways to wear a jumpsuit .What you team it with can make a big difference to your overall ensemble, making these easy wears transform from work wear to party wear.
Styling a jumpsuit is about knowing a few ground rules, and then letting your personal sense of style take over. Here, we have put together 5 ways for you to wear a jumpsuit!
Pulling a jacket or blazer over your jumpsuit helps break the monotony in the outfit and adds more character to it. This works well with both cross-over and high-necked sleeveless jumpsuit styles. If you’re wearing it to the workplace, you can team it with a sharp blazer, so the overall look appears refined and dapper. If you’re just wearing it for a casual hangout, then you could pair it with a bomber, denim or patterned jacket, as you please!
Jumpsuits with a high neckline can be paired with collared neckpieces while strapless jumpsuits can be paired with more dramatic necklaces. Cuff bracelets look stylish with high-necked jumpsuits. Droplet earrings with gemstones can complete the look nicely. Then again, if you are doing your hair up in a bun, you may want to look at chunky earrings when you are styling a jumpsuit. Of course, if you have paisley prints or other busy patterns going on in the jumpsuit, you may want to go easy in the jewellery, with simple pieces like silver or gold bar necklaces, small drop pendants or layered chains.
Strapping on a belt can improve the fit of a jumpsuit better, especially with jumpsuits in lighter fabrics. Belts don’t just cinch the waist and accentuate your waistline but can also break the solid or patterned monotone in the jumpsuit. You have many belt styles to play around with. Say you’re heading out to a party, then you could wear a strapless jumpsuit in solid colours with a metallic belt. Matching jewellery to go with the belt is a tasteful move too! Chain-link belts can add more style to your jumpsuits too!
Jumpsuits are generally supposed to sit at the ankles, so while you are purchasing shoes that go with them, you want to see where the hemline is. We’re not so fond of the idea of jumpsuits with peep-toes, although it’s easy to rock jumpsuits with stilettos and sneakers, and nearly everything else in between. Wearing your jumpsuit with stilettos make it seem like your legs go on forever, and matching it with your handbag or clutch is a great way to put the outfit together! So if you’re wearing a white jumpsuit, a pair of brown stilettos and a matching brown clutch will look elegant. If you want to wear the jumpsuit with a pair of sneakers you may want to try rolling it up above the ankle, for a laid-back casual look.
Keeping warm in a jumpsuit doesn’t mean making the outfit messy. Add chic layers with accessories like scarves. Throw a contrasting print or coloured scarf on your jumpsuit. A black jumpsuit can be brought to life with a brightly coloured silk scarf. The classic polka dot scarf with a denim jumpsuit is a timeless match. If you want to keep your jumpsuit the focus of the outfit, look for more subtle colours and elegant prints so that the scarf blends into your outfit. Another layering look that you can try is to wear a long sleeved t-shirt underneath your jumpsuit, or a simple cardigan if you want to flaunt a street style and stay warm at the same time.
There you go! Styling a jumpsuit is easy, isn’t it? Jumpsuits hand you the reigns so you can dress them up or down based on occasion. Just take care to not over-accessorize these outfits, as they are all about effortless style and quick chic dressing!
