No Fail Tips To Choosing The Right Jumpsuit

No Fail Tips Choosing a Fashionable Jumpsuit 


Jumpsuits were a common fashion statement in the ’70s and ’80s and have recently made a comeback. Jumpsuits are similar to dresses as they are one-piece garments. 

What is a Jumpsuit?

A jumpsuit is an all in one garment that comes in many fabrics, colors, prints, and styles. 

How to Wear a Jumpsuit

Choosing the proper fit of a jumpsuit is very important. If you are short in height, you will choose a cropped style slim fitting jumpsuit. If you are taller, it is recommended you choose a jumpsuit that is wide-legged and is just above the ground in length. 

When selecting to wear a jumpsuit for a formal event, it is best to choose a well-tailored, sleek design that is figure-flattering. Coupling this with the proper accessories can create the perfect formal fashion. There are many beautiful formal styles available to meet the needs of all body types. High heels are a good choice when dressing formally. 

When looking for a more casual look, choosing a jumpsuit with a waist drawstring or an elastic waistband in a loose fit will achieve the desired casual look. Jumpsuits are extremely comfortable to wear and are a great alternative to the jeans and t-shirt look. It is a good idea to wear lace-up sandals or cropped style boots as a choice in flat shoe wear. 

Choosing a Jumpsuit 

Always consider your needs when shopping for a jumpsuit. First establish the occasion, event, or reason you are selecting a jumpsuit. Once this is established you can then focus on which style would suit you best. The most flattering jumpsuit styles are loose-fitting on the legs and fitted at the waist. 

Accessories for Jumpsuits

Accessorizing your jumpsuit can be just as important as choosing the right jumpsuit. If you choose the right accessories, you can make a bold fashion statement. However, choosing the wrong accessories can make your look unstylish and sloppy. Some common accessories that can be used with jumpsuits are:

  • Hats
  • Jewelry
  • Shoes
  • Belts
  • Handbags

Jumpsuit Styles

There are many jumpsuit styles to choose from. Some include:

  • Halter style
  • Harem style
  • Tank top style
  • Spaghetti strap style
  • T-shirt style
  • Crop pant style
  • Slim fitting styles
  • Loose-fitting styles
  • Formal styles
  • Casual styles
  • Office wear styles 

And the list goes on. 

Jumpsuits Accessorized with Belts

Wearing a belt with a jumpsuit accentuates your waistline and has a flattering effect.  Wearing a belt with a fitted waist jumpsuit can make you look slimmer and more defined. You can choose a belt with a contrasting color or the same solid color as the jumpsuit. There are so many different belts that can be worn to dress up or dress down jumpsuits. Here are some belt styles to consider:

  • Shiny styles
  • Rope styles
  • Chain styles
  • Elasticised styles
  • Fitted styles
  • Flowing styles
  • Leather styles
  • Sequin styles
  • Jeweled styles 
  • And many more 

A great well put together fashionable look is matching the belt color with your shoe color. 

Jumpsuits Accessorized with Jewelry 

Jewelry has been a long-time accessory used with many fashions. Accessorizing your jumpsuit with jewelry can make a plain-looking jumpsuit stand out with adding bold accessories. Adding jewelry creates a second focal point of your outfit. Choosing chunky pieces and flashy pieces that stand out create a very bold statement. A formal jumpsuit accessorized with gold jewelry looks great. For a more casual look, colorful and fun jewelry makes a great addition. 

Wearing a Jumpsuit with High Heels

Some jumpsuits tend to make you appear shorter than what you are by pulling the eye downwards. Low waisted and wide-leg style jumpsuits are notorious for creating that image. To help circumvent this look, wearing high heels can offset the image of looking shorter. High heels make you look taller by adding length to your legs. It is recommended that you choose a slim high heel as opposed to chunky, to keep the long and slick look. 

Layering a Jumpsuit

Layering is a fun way to establish a unique fashion statement. Layering a jumpsuit with some of the following items can be a creative way to establishing your own look: 

  • Leather jacket
  • Blazer
  • Sweater
  • Crop top under the jumpsuit
  • T-shirt under the jumpsuit
  • Off the shoulder tops
  • Turtlenecks
  • Jean jacket
  • Sequin accented tops or jackets

The options are endless. 

Selecting a Hairstyle to Accent Your Look

A key factor to consider when wearing your jumpsuit is how you are going to wear your hair, especially when attending a formal event or occasion. 

Some general guidelines for wearing your hair with jumpsuits are as follows:

  • Casual jumpsuits 
  • Wear your hair down
  • Add some curls or waves.
  • A low loose ponytail
  • Formal jumpsuits
  • An updo creating a polished look
