How to Wear a Jumpsuit — 9 to 5 & Beyond

Determining how to wear a jumpsuit can pose a styling challenge for even the most seasoned dresser. If you’ve avoided this trend, now’s the time to give it a chance. Jumpsuits are no longer considered a trendy item; they’re a wardrobe staple. The jumpsuit adds a touch of playfulness to your look, and is a fresh alternative to your everyday wardrobe choices. With clothing rental, it’s easy to experiment with new styles commitment-free—and have fun while you’re at it.


How to Wear a Jumpsuit for the Office

For a fashionable work wardrobe update, try a jumpsuit with a blazer or cardigan tossed over it—perhaps even cinched at the waist with a skinny belt. The look is stylish, while still staying professional. 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.

How To Style A Jumpsuit for Date Night

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.

How to Style a Jumpsuit for a Casual Weekend

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 relaxed shape or a pair of coveralls for a laid-back look. The idea here is to have fun, so push yourself a little outside of your comfort zone when it comes to silhouettes and colors. Smaller prints and less fabric are best for petites, or curvier figures, whereas larger prints and voluminous shapes flatter the taller, and less-curvaceous end of the spectrum.
