The Jumpsuit is totally having a moment! These one-piece looks are taking the season by storm and are definitely not going anywhere. They are truly a statement piece and a great alternative to a dress or top and pants. There are a lot of different jumpsuit options and so it’s really important to find the right silhouette for your body or this chic look can go very wrong! Like dresses, you will see them worn very casually or dressed up for a special occasion, including wedding season! The sky is the limit as long as you stick with My Styling Philosophy…Fit, Function & Feeling! Here’s how you can apply it to get the perfect jumpsuit for you.
Does it Fit? This is SO important with a jumpsuit. I prefer a style that creates a waistline, no extra bulk is needed. You can add a belted accessory to create an hour-glass silhouette and break up a monochromatic look. Another key is finding the correct leg. A jogger style can be great for shorter legs as it’s more fitted and doesn’t add bulk. A wide leg is nice for a longer leg. Adding a heel to any jumpsuit is a good idea! These leg-lengthening beauties can change the whole outfit.
What Function are you dressing for? You can wear a jumpsuit for pretty much any occasion. There are lots of versatile styles out now but there are some that are very specifically casual or very much special occasion. Find the right one for your need so you feel confident wearing it.
Do you Feel amazing in what you are wearing? If you don’t feel amazing in it, don’t buy it. If you are not confident in something you are never going to select it when you go to your closet to get dressed. You should put something on and go, wow, I can’t wait to wear this again!
Don’t forget to accessorize! Grab a statement necklace and arm candy or why not add a pop of color with statement earrings? There are so many options, have fun with it. The contrasting color can add so much to the jumpsuit. I’ve selected a few options that are so fun below…
