Jumpsuits are a style lifesaver! If you don’t already have one of these one piece heroes in your closet, then get ready to have your whole outlook on dressing totally reinvented, for the better!
First things first, finding the right jumpsuit! There are so many options out there, with literally thousands of women’s jumpsuits available at your fingertips at any given time, you’d be forgiven for feeling ever so slightly lost when you start browsing. The key to any wise and sustained fashion purchase is really just investing in the classics. Yes, trend pieces are so much fun and they feel like you absolutely have to have them the second you set your eyes on them, but the truth is that they’re going to go out of style in a couple of months and the item is just going to eat up precious wardrobe space until you decide that it’s time to retire it. Thoughtfully investing in high quality, beautifully designed pieces that fit like a glove and last year after year will change the way you dress and give you a wardrobe that you love for your whole life. Find a classic cut jumpsuit that fits flawlessly (if it’s not fitting right, take it to the tailor), and let the accessories do the talking! Accessories, hair and makeup will transform any article of clothing, promise. Here are a few fun styling ideas to reinvent that timelessly chic jumpsuit again and again…
Capture that romantic, eclectic bohemian vibe by dressing your jumpsuit up with a crochet shawl or silky, embellished kimono. Add some chunky leather biker boots for winter or some woven hessian sandals for the summer months. Layer plenty of mixed metal chokers, necklaces and pendants around your neck, add statement hoop earrings and grab a fringed suede clutch bag. You’ll look like an absolute bohemian dream walking around with this get up going on.
That’s right, your one piece can slot into your weekly workwear rotation! Start with some platform brogues or oxfords if you prefer the more minimal look. Layer a white or black long sleeved turtleneck underneath and embellish your neckline with a single statement pendant. Add a slick tailored blazer over the top and pull your hair into a neat bun. A leather satchel or backpack will be the perfect finishing touches to this effortlessly cool and comfortable boardroom chic look.
Off Duty Dressing
Bring that jumpsuit out for a bit of weekend fun! Layer a crew neck cotton tee shirt in a trend tie dye print or good old fashioned white for a fresh and cute look. Accessorise with white leather sneakers and a silky headscarf for a perfect off duty outfit that still screams fashionista. Carry a leather cross body or opt for an oversized basket bag for an air of Parisian chic to style up your weekend errands.
You don’t have to save your one piece for the warmer months! Layer a thermal long sleeved top and knee high boots underneath your jumpsuit to lay the foundations for a cute and cosy look. Throw on a chunky knit crewneck jumper and an oversized leather jacket to rug up for any weather. Add a beanie and knitted gloves for the really chilly days.
Take your jumpsuit with you for a formal night out on the town! This is where you’ll really appreciate your choice to invest in a classic, well made item. Introduce a colour contrast by piling on plenty of statement resin jewellery. Layer bangles, metal chains, delicate rings and add some stylishly statement resin earrings to finish. Some great colour combos to try out include pink and red, cream and black or black and tortoiseshell. The colour combination is a great way of making a comfortable and classic piece feel new, creative and ever so fashionably formal!
