Jumping for Jumpsuits: 5 Ways to Wear the Trend Well

Move over sundresses, loungewear, summer track suits and traditional evening wear, the jumpsuit is stealing your thunder as we finish out summer and head into fall. Whether billowy and lightweight, casual or formal, there is something for everyone who would like to “jump” into the trend with gusto.

In the month’s blog, we share 5 ways to wear the look well.

#1 Get Comfortable
Give your summer loungewear (and even tracksuits!) a summer break by replacing them with a billowing, lightweight jumpsuit or a casual sporty style. Athleticwear fits under just fine and sneakers finish it off too! Now go hit the juice bar already – you’re covered and styling too!

 



#2 Sundress Alternative
Dresses are often called “onesies'' for adults. Jumpsuits actually look more like an actual “onesie” and give you the same benefit. Dressing made easy for sure! The choices for daytime jumpsuits are endless. From feminine and frilly to masculine and utilitarian and everything in between.

 



#3 The New LBD
When it comes to jumpsuits, the color choices are endless. Yet, there is something about a black, formal jumpsuit after 5 that rules! Black gives edge to the trend and evening appeal while often being slimming too.

 



#4 Get a Leg Up
If you are a pant girl, jumpsuits are naturally suited for you. Have some fun with the bottom half of the look with pinstripes (yes, they can make your legs look longer), color-blocking along the side of each leg and/or split and cropped hems. You get the gist!

 



#5 Flatter Your Figure
Halter necks, one shoulder cuts, off the shoulder completely, puffy sleeves and backless numbers all help you call attention to places you see best fit. Matte jersey often stretches in all the right places, belts can cinch the waist nicely and heels can add balance when necessary. Flats also work depending on the cut, style, your height and comfort level.

 



Last Word: Jumpsuits come in all shapes, sizes, and cuts. Making sure the proportion is right for your body and having fun accessorizing for the right look you want is really where it’s at. Don’t be afraid to tailor these awesome frocks to work perfectly for your body! We’d love to help you learn more about fits and styles that work for you.
