How to Style a Jumpsuit
For a fashionable update on the familiar sheath or shift, try a jumpsuit with a blazer or long cardigan tossed over it—perhaps cinched at the waist with a skinny belt. This look is stylishly edgy, but still professional and warm. If the neckline of your jumpsuit feels too low for the office, try layering a long sleeve tee, turtleneck, or button-down shirt beneath it.
Dinner Date Cool:
Dressy jumpsuits abound at the moment, and there’s one for everyone. Worn with statement earrings, a motorcycle jacket, and a bold heel, this outfit exudes a cool elegance that simply outclasses the dress. A cropped jumpsuit with a defined waist is great for a petite frame. If you’re on the taller side, high waisted versions with flowy legs further elongate your form.
Paired with a denim jacket, and some sneakers or flats, you can really cut loose with jumpsuits for a weekend shopping trip or a get-together with girlfriends. Try a slouchy or exaggerated shape, or even a bold print. The idea here is to have fun, so push yourself a little when it comes to silhouettes and colors. Smaller prints and less fabric are best for petites, or shapely figures, whereas large (but spacious) prints and voluminous shapes flatter the taller, and less-curvaceous end of the spectrum.
