Things to consider when choosing a jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are without a doubt a statement
style. The head-to-toe, all-in-one garment creates a striking look that moves
beyond a simple dress or pants and top combo and into more fashionable
territories. Airing a jumpsuit isn’t rocket science you can literally put it on
and off. The right accessories and proper layering pieces are key in injecting
your own personal style and being seasonally appropriate.

 

I’m a fan of jumpsuits! Even though I don’t
wear them often, I’ve always like how fancy they look and how this one piece
can make a complete outfit. As a dress, it’s one and done. I know I’m not alone
when wondering how to wear a jumpsuit. They can be a little intimidating and if
not worn correctly can look sloppy or make you look shorter or wider than you
are. There’s a reason you mainly see white or black jumpsuits it’s the easiest
to wear and you don’t run the worry of looking like a trendy fool in a crazy
printed jumpsuit.
Personally, like with most of my clothing, I
opt for the more classic and elegant pieces. I do love a color, print, and
different textures but with my petite frame I have to be careful or pieces can
swallow me whole.
HERE
ARE SOME OF THE REVIEW OF THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING ANY JUMPSUIT.
5 STYLE TIPS ON WEARING A JUMPSUIT


1.  FIND THE
PERFECT FIT
Finding a jumpsuit that fits your body
perfectly is key to looking polished and put together. Don’t wear anything too
tight or too loose. If you wear a jumpsuit that’s too tight, you might give off
that cat women vibe and you might feel uncomfortable. If you wear a jumpsuit
that is too loose, you will completely lose your figure, and the jumpsuit will
overwhelm your body. The jumpsuits in this outfit post are a halter top,
cinched at the waist with a wide leg. It’s not too big or too small, and I’m
able to show off my figure by showing the right amount of skin with the halter
top.
2. DEFINE YOUR WAIST
I have to emphasize the point of not losing
your figure. A lot of jumpsuits have either a cloth belt or you can easily add
your belt to define your waist. Cinching your jumpsuit at the waist is a great
way to add some femininity to the look and give you that curvy look.
 3. PAIR IT WITH A BLAZER
I like to add dimensions to my outfits! Even
though the white jumpsuit could stand alone, I wanted to show you how you can
easily add a blazer to give it your personality. If you’ve never worn a
jumpsuit before adding a blazer will make you feel more comfortable than
without. It breaks up the look and adds a layer to make the jumpsuit more
subtle. When selecting a blazer or jacket go with one that enhances the
jumpsuits and goes with the occasion. Pick color tones that are similar to your
jumpsuit or contrasting. If you’re wearing a pretty floral jumpsuit you might
want to wear a light rose blazer. Just make sure the two items match.
4. WEAR HEELS WITH WIDE LEG JUMPSUIT
If you’re wearing a wide leg jumpsuit you need
to wear heels. Wearing heels is a style rule to follow because if you have a
petite frame, in order for you not to look even shorter you have to create the
illusion that will make you look super tall. If you were to wear a wide leg
jumpsuit with sandals or flats, the bottom half would look pretty sloppy. It
would look like you are wearing a jumpsuit that doesn’t fit, and you would look
shorter. Wide leg jumpsuits can overpower a small frame so make sure you’re
pairing it with skinny heels.
5. WEAR A SOLID JUMPSUIT
If you’re a jumpsuit virgin ease into it and
wear a solid black or white jumpsuit. If you’re daring, wear a colored solid,
like navy, blush, burgundy, or olive green. But Black is always a slimming
choice! A solid jumpsuit is elongating since its one unbroken vertical line the
eye moves easily up and down without interruption. Once you feel comfortable in
a black or white jumpsuit experiment by adding some pattern or splashes of
color.
OTHER TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN WEARING A JUMPSUITJUMPSUITS CAN BE WORN TO FORMAL
OCCASIONS
A jumpsuit can easily be dressed up for a
formal event. If the style of the jumpsuit is appropriate, then all you have to
do is accessorize it to fit the party. A white jumpsuit is always a classic
feminine jumpsuit with a pleated halter. Since it’s classier in the style, you could
easily dress it up with heels, black tuxedo blazer, gold accessories and a
dainty handbag. You can also wear fancy bun hair to go with the style of the
outfit. You can easily wear this to a formal event and stand out because of the
jumpsuit and stylish accessories.
LOOSE CUT IS MORE FLATTERING
Finding a perfectly draped jumpsuit is gold. It’s not just because I’m modest, but loose jumpsuits that drape your figure
are more flattering than skin tight jumpsuits it will make you look more
elegant and taller. Your waist is defined and with a wider leg, your waist will
look even slimmer. I hope these style tips answered how to wear a jumpsuit!
For many, the mere mention of a jumpsuit can
make you throw up a tiny bit in your mouth while visions of crotch-hugging
jumpsuits-gone-bad dance in your head.
Think monochromatic
What is the oft-repeated rule for creating a
long, lean silhouette? A fool-the-eye trick that stylists always lean on? Keep
the top and bottom monochromatic. And what is a jumpsuit but a monochromatic
outfit for those days when you don’t want to try matching the sorter black
pants to the truly black blouse? By very virtue of its oneness, a jumpsuit is a
one-note wonder.
Rule of fit
If you are a petite woman who’s out pant
shopping, do you pluck billowy palazzo trousers? No, you choose pants that
don’t overwhelm your frame. The same rule applies to your jumpsuit. Petites opt
for a standard trouser width or a narrow, tapered leg when buying a Jumpsuit. If
you have a bit of a tummy, do you choose a trouser that is tight across the
abdomen? Or do you opt for a high-waist pant with a soft drape that glides over
your mid-section? The same fit formula goes for the dreaded camel toe, a
fashion fails that happens when a jumpsuit is too short in the stride or tight
in the rear and pulls at the crotch. If you are pear-shaped, buy a jumpsuit
that fits your bottom and has the top taken in. If you are long-waist look for
jumpsuits that have a blouson top with an elastic waist. The blouson will be
more forgiving than a jumpsuit with a more fitted top. For nearly every body
size and shape take three options into the dressing room. A size up, your
regular size and a size down. Even brands that have consistent fits don’t
always get jumpsuit sizing right.
Last on the fit formula? If you are tall
enough for a flow palazzo pant, make sure they literally graze the floor. The
long, fluid line of the jumpsuit elongates and looks elegant. If they are too
short the jumpsuit will definitely look awkward. While a tapered-hem jumpsuit
can hit at the ankle bone, don’t opt for clam-digger short. Anything shorter
than ankle-length is a jumpsuit no-no.
Vow for versatility
I’m not sure how jumpsuits became tagged as
sexy (onuses aren’t sexy!), but they can work for daywear. In fact, they are
the perfect desk-to-dinner option. A basic black jumpsuit looks suitable for
work if you pair it with a tailored blazer or long jacket. Ditch the coat; add
strappy sandals and you are good to go for an evening out.
