Jumpsuits are a statement style that instantly declares you as a fashion forward dresser. Some of you are die hard jumpsuit gals while others might be more timid to try this look. I get it—this versatile, trend-worthy dressing piece is not the easiest to shop for, or to style right. But wear a jumpsuit well, and you’re often the best-dressed woman in the room.
Here are four style tips guaranteed to give you the confidence to wear a jumpsuit at any age.
4 Jumpsuit Styling Tips You Need To Know
1.) Define Your Waist
No matter what your shape, its all about cinching in your waist. Your jumpsuit should be tailored to fit you correctly and have a belt, sash, elastic…something…so that your waist is defined, otherwise you will look like a blob even if you are on the thinner side.
2.) Color or Pattern is Key
One head to toe color is always more flattering, slimming and elongating and a jumpsuit allows you to do just that. Remember that a change in color creates a breakpoint which has a shortening effect. When choosing a jumpsuit with a print, be sure to keep it in proportion to your frame. If you are thin or petite, opt for a smaller print. If you are a larger woman, stick to larger prints but not too large.
3.) Wear The Right Shoe
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I always mention this in my fashion rules. Shoes can really make or break ANY outfit. This is definitely the case with a jumpsuit…the right shoe is a must. Keep your shoes pretty, feminine and fun. For spring/summer jumpsuits I suggest you wear a block heel sandal or a strappy high heel to give you that long, lean look we all crave although I do love a cute flat in the summer.
4.) Throw On A Jacket
Many women avoid wearing jumpsuits because they are either sleeveless, strapless or halter and as we reach our 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, many of us just don’t like to show our bare arms. Don’t let silhouettes stop you! I am a huge believer in throwing on a jacket. A denim jacket should be a staple in your wardrobe as should a white denim jacket. For dressier looks, there is nothing more chic than throwing on a lightweight leather jacket in a coordinating color.
I fell in love with this Jude Connally Snake Print Jumpsuit that is made in the USA and completely wash and wear! It features a faux wrap front, elastic waist with removable sash and wide leg. This is the perfect summer jumpsuit for casual back yard parties with flat sandals but its equally great dressed up for date night or a cocktail party. This jumpsuit would be work friendly as well with a black jacket thrown over your shoulders. I felt it ran slightly large and I’m wearing an XS. It retails for $248.
White sandals are a must for this time of year. My Alexandre Birman Block Heel Sandals have just been marked down 40% off!
The trending statement necklace of the moment is a chain link style. I picked up this one by Jennifer Zeuner. It can be worn as a choker or collar necklace with a four-inch extender, making it the ultimate layering piece. Choose gold, silver or rose vermeil!
I’ve had my Paige Denim Jacket for years and highly suggest adding it to your wardrobe! Its super soft and is the long lost friend your closet’s been calling for.
