Jumpsuit Style Guide: 3 Key Styling Tips

Jumpsuits Style Guide - Black Halo

A great jumpsuit can be the ultimate statement style. More sophisticated than a skirt-and-top combo, and more daring than a dress, the right jumpsuit can have you turning heads. But beware – when it comes to one-and-done pieces like jumpsuits, styling is everything. The fit, fabrication, and accessories you choose can make or break your jumpsuit moment. Follow our style guide, and you’ll be rocking jumpsuits like a style expert in no time!

FIND THE PERFECT FIT

Fit is the most important factor in whether a jumpsuit will look sophisticated, or sloppy. Look for a style that’s tailored, but not too tight – you want to be comfortable, not give off a Catwoman vibe! On the other end of the spectrum, avoid overly loose, flowy styles – they may be comfortable, but they’ll swallow you whole!

Our top pick for a universally flattering jumpsuit style? Wide legs, a tailored waist, and a square halter neck with open back offers just the right balance between class and sass. The wide leg + high waist combo is guaranteed to add 2 inches to your frame!

DRESS FOR THE OCCASION

Jumpsuits for Formal Events

Adding jumpsuits to your wardrobe opens up a new world of options for event dressing! A chic jumpsuit makes a perfect alternative to a dress for cocktail parties, date nights, and even weddings. For a formal event, choose a structured jumpsuit in a luxe fabrication like pebbled crepe.

Casual Jumpsuits

A jumpsuit adds an unexpectedly-chic element to your look for a more casual event, like brunch or drinks with your girlfriends. Opt for an on-trend two-piece style, or show a little skin in a romper if you’re feeling flirty!

 

ACCESSORIZE RIGHT

What Jewelry to Wear With a Jumpsuit

While the perfect jumpsuit makes a statement in and of itself, adding the right jewelry can take your look to the next level. Try a strapless jumpsuit with statement earrings for a night out, or layer a bold necklace over a high-neck jumpsuit for a graphic pop.
What Shoes to Wear With a Jumpsuit

Most jumpsuits are worn best with a heel. Without that added lift, wide-leg styles quickly look sloppy, especially if you have a small frame. To play up to illusion of elongated legs, choose a strappy heeled sandal or pointy-toed pump.

Belted Jumpsuits

Adding a belt to your jumpsuit will instantly define your waist and slim your silhouette. Opt for a slim belt with minimal hardware to keep your look sleek and sophisticated.
