How To Wear A Jumpsuit

Updated: Jun 20

1. FIND THE PERFECT FIT

Purchasing a jumpsuit that fits your body perfectly is key to looking polished and put together. Don’t wear a jumpsuit that is too tight or too loose.

If you wear a jumpsuit that’s too tight, you might give off that Catwoman vibe, and you might feel uncomfortable. If you wear a jumpsuit that is too loose, you will completely lose your figure, and the jumpsuit will overwhelm your body.

Nordstrom always has a lot of stylish jumpsuits to shop from. So that is the first place I would recommend you start your search for your perfect jumpsuit.


2. DEFINE YOUR WAIST

I have to emphasize the point of not losing your figure. A lot of jumpsuits have either a cloth belt the same color as the jumpsuit or you can easily add your belt to define your waist. Cinching your jumpsuit at the waist is a great way to add some femininity to the look and give you that curvy look.


3. PAIR THE JUMPSUIT WITH A BLAZER

I like to add dimensions to my outfits! You can easily add a blazer to give it some personality.

If you’ve never worn a jumpsuit before adding a blazer will make you feel more comfortable than without. It breaks up the look and adds a layer to make the jumpsuit more subtle.

When selecting a blazer or jacket go with one that enhances the jumpsuit and goes with the occasion. This outfit could work for a cocktail party, formal evening dinner or going out to fancy drinks with friends. Consider where you are going to wear your jumpsuit and select a blazer that either brings it up a notch or makes it more casual.


4. WEAR HEELS WITH WIDE LEG JUMPSUIT

If you’re wondering what shoes to wear with a jumpsuit, always opt for heels! Unless it’s a very casual jumpsuit for the beach. Wearing heels is a style rule I follow because you don’t want to appear short or frumpy. Create the illusion of long and lean by not having the bottom of the jumpsuit bunch up.

The shoes you wear with wide-leg jumpsuits need to be on the skinny side. Stay away from wedges, clogs, or anything with a thick heel. This is especially true if the fabric is light and airy.


5. WEAR A SOLID COLOR JUMPSUIT

If you’re a jumpsuit virgin ease into it and wear a solid black, navy, forest, or dark-colored jumpsuit. If you’re a little daring, opt for a jumpsuit with a small print, like polka dots, or bright color!


But Black is always a slimming choice!

A solid jumpsuit is elongating since it’s one unbroken vertical line the eye moves easily up and down without interruption.

Once you feel comfortable in a black or white jumpsuit experiment by adding some pattern or splashes of color.
