7 Tips for Wearing a Jumpsuit

I’m not going to lie to you, wearing a jumpsuit takes just a touch of confidence. It’s actually been sitting my closet for a month or two, and I finally pulled it out. It can feel a little awkward, especially if you happen to be of the shorter variety. So, how do you bridge that style gap and work your way into wearing them? How to wear a jumpsuit on

One. Accessorize it up! Jumpsuits can almost feel boyish at times, as they tend to take away some of your feminine shape. Wear some statement pieces to help dress it up, like dangly earrings or layered necklaces.

Two. Give it a waist. Most jumpsuits already have one, but if not (or even if they do) throw on a belt or maybe tassel-ended cord to accentuate that part of your body.

Three. Start small – wear it to somewhere you might not get a lot of attention, like a movie theater! They’re super comfy for that type of occasion, and that way you can slowly get used to wearing one in public.

Four. Try different fabrics. The one I’m wearing is cotton, and it feels like I’m wearing sweats. SO comfortable. I really want one that’s a bit more businessy.

Five. While I’m not following this advice, it also seems to help if they are sleeveless. Sleeves can make them feel a little more like a t-shirt or sweatshirt, whereas being sleeveless gives it a summery, dainty vibe.

Six. Throw on a pair of heels (also didn’t follow my own advice here). If you’re short, jumpsuits might just make you look shorter. By adding heels, you instantly up the dressiness factor and make those legs look a bit longer.

Seven. Make sure the leg length works. If it’s worth it, get it hemmed. Some even work cuffed. You just don’t want it to drag the ground and become raggedy after just one wear.

Have you jumped on the jumpsuit trend?
