Jumpsuit 101: How To Wear A Jumpsuit

 Jumpsuits

I’m currently having an obsession with jumpsuits and here’s why – They’re beyond comfortable, they’re easy to dress up or down and I don’t have to think about putting an outfit together.  As an exceptionally lazy fanshionista, jumpsuits were made for people like me.

 

My favorite jumpsuit/playsuit to date is one I recently purchased off missguided for my upcoming vacation.  It’s made out of breathable jersey material that is easy to wash, doesn’t need ironing and comes in an array of great colors.  Most importantly for me though is that it’s flattering on my ‘wobbly bits’.  During the day I plan on pairing it with large sunnies and a pair of white plimsolls and at night I’ll switch to a metallic belt and heels.

For those of you who wish to jump on the jumpsuit bandwagon I’ve included a few tips along with some of my favorite styles below.

 

Perfect for curvy and bottom heavy women.  Add a belt to give waist definition.  Great for a night out.

Let your body shape dictate the style:  If your busty I recommend a V neck or wrap style top.  If you’re bottom heavy I suggest straight legs as tapered pants can make you appear larger than you are.  Also buy a size larger if you’ve got a little junk in the trunk as jumpsuits can have a nasty habit of giving you a wedgie.

Be Bold with Prints:  jumpsuits come in an array of prints from the delicate florals to the Amazonian animal prints.  Choosing the right print can add instant style while directing the eye away from problem areas.
