How to style a jumpsuit

27th October, 2021

A jumpsuit is often one of those things where you either love them or hate them. I fall into the former camp as I think they’re a lot of fun to wear and can really make a statement without having to fuss around with trying to match tops and bottoms. I also like the fact that they can work casually but also in a dressy sense from a night out to a wedding However I know sometimes they can seem a little daunting to wear, from deciding what to pair it with to how to choose just the right fit. However, having gone down this route a few times, I have a few tried and tested tips on how to style a jumpsuit to achieve a killer look. Read on…

Consider length

Try your jumpsuit on with the shoes you’re likely to wear it with the most and look at how the length? Is it too long? Too short? It’s a good idea to keep your jumpsuit at a length that hits just at the ankle for the most flattering fit, at this length it can work with both flats and a heel. If you’re planning on wearing a slightly dressier jumpsuit for the evening, make sure that you can wear it with a heel (if that’s what you’re planning to pair it with) without it touching or dragging on the ground. If you need adjustments made, it’s definitely worth doing to achieve the best fit.

Avoid going too big or too small

You want to avoid a jumpsuit that’s going to be so small that you can end up getting a rather unflattering camel toe effect but you also you don’t want it to be so loose that it swamps you. Try and opt for a fit that’s comfortable, where it’s not overly snug but not so big that it looks a little unkempt. You want to be able to freely move around without your jumpsuit being snug in all the wrong places.

Have definition at the waist

The thing with a jumpsuit is that given it’s an all-in-one garment, if you don’t have a slightly cinched in effect at the waist you can risk it totally looking like its wearing you rather than you wearing it. Lots of jumpsuits these days come with a waist tie which I think is a great way to get a more defined waist, but you could also opt to wear a belt to get the same effect.

Keep it simple

Wearing a jumpsuit is a statement making look so avoid going too over the top with accessories. You want to keep the silhouette rather sleek and pared back with a few carefully chosen accessories to help lift it rather than compete with it. A gorgeous statement earring or a beautiful headband for example are effective ways to really lift a jumpsuit without it feeling a bit much.

What I Wore: Colour Pop

18th January, 2018

When it comes to my wardrobe I generally tend to favour lots of neutrals and muted tones. I gravitate towards shades that can easily be worked back with the rest of my wardrobe seamlessly but every so often I’ll want to wear a vibrant hue. This navy jumpsuit has a classic feel from the silhouette to the colour, but for a day look it was calling out to be paired with a bold pop of colour to give it a more casual feel. A simple tote is one of my go-tos when I’m out and about and in a bright red it gave my ensemble a fun touch. When working with such a intense colour, I wanted to let it take centre stage so I chose simple accessories. My favourite white Gucci sneakers and black sunglasses seemed the right fit whilst the addition of a pair of drop earrings help to lift the entire ensemble. When it comes to days where I’m out and about, I always like to make a point to turn a casual off duty outfit into something with a little polish without sacrificing comfort and in this instance, a little colour really went a long way.

What I Wore: Gold Fever

9th January, 2018

Now that it’s officially the time of year in Australia where everyone’s in the mood to go out and enjoy a few cocktails and make the most of balmy summer nights I’m once again drawn to this Rebecca Vallance jumpsuit. I took it with me to Paris during my last holiday and loved that it felt so right for evenings out, making the most of the gorgeous weather. I’d usually associate gold lamé with more of a party look but the style of the jumpsuit, with its culotte style leg, square neckline and sweet waist tie keep it looking polished without losing any of its glam factor. The colour is so gorgeous that to continue the gilded theme I opted for my gold Gucci heels and favourite Eddie Borgo choker. To punctuate the head-to-toe metallic I went with a little black Dior bag with chain strap to carry all my essentials and leave my hands-free should I wish to enjoy a drink or two!

What I Wore: Making the jump

21st September, 2017

There’s something about a black jumpsuit that makes a strong sartorial statement—it’s the type of piece that screams sleek and modern. Bec & Bridge’s take on the style with its strapless neckline and cropped wide leg pants has a contemporary, polished silhouette but is given a slightly more relaxed feel in the ultra on trend fabric that is linen. It’s the kind of piece that I can see becoming a versatile go-to in my wardrobe during the warmer months. I can’t resist teaming black with gold so I opted for my favourite gilded Gucci heels and and choker for a metallic touch. I kept my bag quite neutral in shade to really allow the gold accessories to shine but wanted to have a bit of fun with my choice of sunglasses so I settled on a pair of clear, round framed sunglasses by Chloe. I found they added some attitude to the look without being over the top. When the weather gets warmer I can guarantee this particular Bec & Bridge jumpsuit will be on high rotation.

What I Wore: Summer daze

19th January, 2017

When it comes to easy outfit options I can’t go past a simple dress. This Maison du Maillot dress with its distinctive print and billowy sleeves can easily work with a pair of sneakers or sandals for day and a pair of heels by night.  With such a busy pattern, I opted to keep my accessories to a minimum to allow the dress to take centre stage. On busy days, having a go-to outfit that I can easily throw on to get out the door fast is my little sartorial shortcut.
