From head-to-toe into new fashion territories – a jumpsuit isn’t always the easiest piece to pull off, however with the right fit and accessories, the all-in-Onesie can create an out-of-the-box WOW factor! Just leave your comfort-zone for a minute and have a look at some rewarding styling tips below!
Fashion-Hero or Fashion-Zero?
Whether for casual occasions or formal oh-so-chic events, jumpsuits come, like dresses, in many different fabrics, prints and silhouettes. It’s all about finding the right style for you that suits your figure. While I believe waist-fitted and looser leg styles look universally flattering, the taller girls might also look striking in wide-leg jumpsuits that finish just above the ground.
Sometime, it‘s worth the wait! Can‘t tell you how many different styles I tried over the past months, from casual denim or printed cotton to flowy silky varieties – Disappointed about looking swamped in the fabric, I was finally jumping to buy when this burnt orange suit landed in the stores (here). This lightweight Onesie comes in a sleeveless slim cut with elasticated waist and open back wrap-detailing (it is of advantage to have a pair of helping hands to tie the knot in the back – thank you hubs 😉 ).
Choose fashionable accessories!
Jumpsuits are statement styles, that require a bit of planning in advance: the right accessories will break up their monotony while make it shining at the same time. I particularly pay attention to shoes, jewelry and the waist line while adding a cropped leather jacket (here) or denim topper (here) as an extra layer to feel comfortable on cooler mornings. You can even wear a plain white shirt (here) or off-shoulder top (here) underneath to comply with the current street style layering trend. For a summerly vibe, I opt for a handwoven basket bag (here or find some inspiration from my latest blog post Season fresh-up – springs must-have bags)
Shoes: While jumpsuits tend to make you appear shorter (even worse for members of the petite fraction like me!), high heels are the best way to solve this problem and to create a leg lengthening silhouette. Crop the hems above the ankle for the maximum shoe exposure! For an early spring day, I paired slim knitted peeptoe sock-booties (here) whereas for a summer night out, strapped sandals might also be a chic choice (here).
Jewelry: Choose pieces that stand out including colorful statement earrings (look at these fun tassel pieces here or here and I just ordered these here), necklaces (here) and tinted shades (maybe in a cat-eye shape like these here or here) to break up its monotony and you will definitively earn some serious style points.
Waist-line: Adding a belt (even if the jumpsuit is already fitted like mine!) will accentuate your waist in an hourglass silhouette and make you appear slimmer. A contrasting color will even break up the straight line of the all-in-one monotony. However, as my jumpsuit (here) comes with an open back wrap-detailing, I matched the color of the belt (here) with the jumpsuit to not create an additional dimension.
