Jumpsuits are not just stylish, they are also fashionably convenient outfits as well. With this, you don’t have to spend a lot of time putting an outfit together, because the jumpsuit is already a statement piece by itself. Versatile, comfortable and easy to wear, the jumpsuit is sure to fit in perfectly with your busy lifestyle. In this guide, we’ll take a look at how you can make a jumpsuit work for any occasion, going from casual to formal events looking like a real fashionista!

Formal occasions

A jumpsuit can be a unique and fashionable choice for formal occasions, offering style and comfort yet being dressy enough as formal wear. Whether it’s an outdoor wedding or a fancy cocktail party, you can dress up a jumpsuit to make it look formal and refined. Figure-flattering black will always be a safe bet, but feel free to experiment with other colours, such as brighter tones and neutrals like white and navy. Incorporate sophistication in your jumpsuit with dressier fabric like silk and chiffon, and embellishments including sparkly sequins.

Casual occasions

For casual jumpsuits, you’ll want to look at lighter fabrics like cotton and a cut that fits your style. Specifically loose fit jumpsuits with short sleeves, wide-leg pants, a skinny belt or drawstring at the waist. A slightly shorter or culotte jumpsuit would look more casual than a full length one. The shorter length will balance out wider flares, helping you look edgy without affecting your height. Wide and comfortable styles are very easy to move around in so you can wear them all day without feeling any discomfort or restriction.

How To Choose A Jumpsuit For Petite Ladies

Worn correctly, a jumpsuit can elongate the petite body frame and be one of the most flattering pieces in the wardrobe. It’s important to be mindful of sticking to tailored and fitted styles, as jumpsuits for petites need to fit well both on your torso and your legs. Look for an elevated waistline, improving the proportion of shorter women and elongating your legs. Black, white, and solid colours are also always a good choice, creating an unbroken vertical line which will make short women look longer and leaner. Jumpsuits with long legs can also hide a pair of heels, providing added height and presenting a more elegant and formal look.

How To Choose A Jumpsuit For Tall Ladies

There are so many pros to being tall, and nobody rocks a jumpsuit better than a tall girl. If you’re still hesitant to try one, start with one that is more understated in style. Look for something that is in a neutral colour and a simpler design. There are a lot of versions out there, so you can rest assured you’ll find one that appeals to you.  Do be careful when picking one though - going shorter might mean that your jumpsuit won’t reach your ankles. Should this happen, you can make the most of it by styling it as a cropped jumpsuit instead.

Accessories and Footwear

Accessorising with earrings or a chain necklace will help your entire outfit shine and make a statement. Let the earrings lend a sparkling element especially if you’ve chosen a jumpsuit with a high neckline. For plunging necklines, drive the focus up by wearing a layered gold necklace or sparkly choker. Complete the look with a clutch bag, a nice pair of flats, or a killer pair of heels and you’ll be turning heads with every step!
