... You say which one?!We have all seen them. Beautiful, chic jumpsuits hanging within arms reach, just waiting to be tried on and taken home. Yes, most of us wore jumpsuits many years ago, but there is no need to be scared. Jumpsuits are current and flattering, and when styled correctly, age-appropriate.
Accentuate Your Waist
There are many jumpsuits that will make you look shapeless. The key is to avoid those ones and find ones that have a bit more shape. Go for pieces that nip in at the waist with a belt, tie, or elastic.
Fit and Proportion
As with any garment, the fit and proportion of your jumpsuit is important. Depending on your shape and height, you need to decide what style best suits you. Perhaps the strapless jumpsuit will not be supportive (or appropriate) enough for someone with a fuller bust line. Or perhaps the jumpsuit with box pleats will accentuate an already fuller hip and thigh. When you look in the mirror, you need to say, "I look and feel good in this!"
Colours, and Prints, and Patterns... Oh My!
Black, black, and black. This colour palette is all too familiar and, truthfully, we really like black. But a departure from the norm is a must-try when exploring jumpsuits. Both colours and prints add to the fun and whimsical aesthetic that accompanies the one-piecer. Why not try bright colours and interesting prints like chevrons, stripes (yes, stripes!), florals, and geometrics?
Throw on a Jacket
The nature of jumpsuits is that they are designed for women with the perky bustline and Pilates-toned arms of Jennifer Aniston. But don't let the "barely there" styling intimate you. Style yours with your favourite jacket, denim topper, or cardigan, for a look that is effortlessly chic, keeps you warm and offers arm coverage.
