Jumpsuits are my absolute favorites. Last count, I own ten and whenever I find a style that fits me well, I will buy the same color. Hence, you see repetition which I don’t really mind at all. To me it all boils down on (1) how you style it (2) if you feel good wearing it (3) and you look good wearing it. While jumpsuits are effortlessly stylish and overall comfortable, they aren’t the most convenient and practical to a lot of people. But I’ll cover your bases so scroll down for some surprising tips and tricks.
Choose a style that’s bathroom-friendly. Funny to read but it’s actually irritating when you you are in the verge of peeing and the button or zipper won’t cooperate. I’ve seen styles that are corset-type at the back or have very tiny buttons that you can’t undo unless you are a contortionist. I’m like, “girl good luck with that but this mama ain’t buying it”. Hence, opt for styles that are simple and uncomplicated such as straight up zipper (even better when it’s on the side) or anything you can pull down or up like garterized at the waist (read how to veganize your wardrobe).
Wear bandeau bra (or nipple stickers) if you are wearing spaghetti strap, sabrina style or tube. This tip is nothing revolutionary but visible bra straps take away the beauty and style of your jumpsuit.
Choose a style or cut that’s versatile and classic, not because it’s trendy. Stay away from frills and really loud designs or prints that scream “one season”. Think about how you can transition from summer to fall to spring to winter. Think about how you can glam it up for special occasions. Think about multiple ways you can wear it (i.e with blazer at work, with sandals or sneakers on weekends).
Layer and have fun. One of the nicest things about jumpsuit is that you can layer it how you want it, the way you want it. Hence, choose a jumpsuit that’s loose so you can wear something under that won’t add unsightly bulk.
