How to Wear a Jumpsuit
I’ll be completely honest- it took a lot of courage for me to wear this outfit! I’ve been eyeing jumpsuits for the past couple of years as they’ve come back into style, but never taken the step of actually buying one. This year a jumpsuit turned out to be the perfect choice for a Christmas party, and now I’m in love! Keep reading for my tips to be comfortable and look great in a jumpsuit!
How to Wear a Jumpsuit:
1. Find the right fit.
And don’t give up until you do! This jumpsuit I’m wearing has seams and a tie at the waist, so I don’t get lost in all the fabric. I love a fitted top on a jumpsuit combined with wide leg pants. Make sure the pants are long enough for you to wear with heels (see Tip #2)
It’s SO important to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing, so look for fabrics you like and don’t go too far outside of your comfort zone. I instantly fell in love with the velvet (taking me back to my childhood clothes ;)) and felt like I was wearing pajamas the whole time.
2. Wear Heels.
I know I said to make sure you’re comfortable- but heels are necessary when wearing a jumpsuit. If you wear a wide leg pair then you need the height to help elongate your frame. You don’t want the pants to puddle at the bottom- so not flattering. To keep with comfort, look for block heels like this pair from Target. Seriously they’re the best purchase and I wear them with so many outfits!
3. Top your jumpsuit with fun outerwear.
Especially if you’re wearing a jumpsuit in the winter, you have to have some sort of layer to keep you warm! I chose a faux fur vest that gave me a 70s vibe, and it was just sassy enough. If I had been wearing a jumpsuit that wasn’t velvet I would have definitely worn a velvet blazer like this one.
4. Keep Accessories simple but memorable.
I chose simple stud earrings and this statement necklace, which were definitely flashy but they were in the same color scheme so it wasn’t too much. Be careful about wearing dangly earrings or an intricate necklace, especially if you’ve got more going on like I do with the faux fur! You don’t want the outfit to bee too busy.
5. Be Confident.
My main tip for ANY outfit will always be confidence. Wear what makes you feel good, and wear it with pride! Even if it’s something outside of the box, like a jumpsuit and faux fur, go for it and don’t worry about what other people think. There is so much in life, besides clothes, that you’ll miss out on if you don’t have confidence in yourself.
I’d love to see you wearing your jumpsuit, tag me in your Instagram pics! 🙂
