Every time I post a pic of me in a jumpsuit you guys go nuts, you’re a fan of the jumpsuit. I’ve received a few enquiries lately asking ‘how to wear a jumpsuit’, so here we go. You ask, I deliver.
+ A jumpsuit will be your ‘bestie’ day or night, for a relaxed or dressy occassion. Here’s what you need to know about wearing a jumpsuit at any size…
+A jumpsuit is like a high class onesie, well in the comfort factor at least. Choose one in a drapey fabric for a flattering fit and ease of movement.
+Speaking of ease, going to the loo isn’t as difficult as you think, just unzip, drop down your jumpsuit and go about your business.
+Add a belt to your jumpsuit to give you shape, choose a soft tie or a more structured belt and wear it high it slung loose on the hips depending on your shape.
+A jumpsuit is the perfect traveller, I roll mine up and it’s no ironing required.
+Your jumpsuit is versatile with a capital ‘V’. Add a blazer, a cape, a kimono, a chambray shirt or even pop a tee over the top or a button up shirt and wear like pants and a top. Gotta love a hardworking piece in your wardrobe!
+Start with a black or navy jumpsuit, it’s going to be your most versatile. Once you’ve nailed that then try print, pattern and colour.
+Add a heel to your jumpsuit, you’ll have legs forever 🙂 A pump or wedge for day, and strappy heels for evening. It’s a tougher gig to pull off a jumpsuit in flats but if you feel confident then go for it.
+Bling your jumpsuit, add a statement necklace, arm party, a metallic belt and a fabulous oversize clutch for some ‘wow’ factor.
+When choosing a jumpsuit make sure it’s not too short in the body. Try sitting down while in the change room, there’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable and a wedgie is never a good look.
+You can absolutely swap out a dress for a jumpsuit for a dressy occasion as long as the jumpsuit is made of an appropriate fabric like silk or linen.
+Choose a flattering neckline, or look for a standout design feature that will help you stand out from the crowd.
+If you’re an apple like me (weight in the tum) try wearing high waisted control briefs under your jumpsuit for a smoother finish.
