I never thought I’d be much of a jumpsuit kind of girl.
They’re just SUCH a statement piece, and I’ve always been more of a basics kind of girl.
But I’m realizing that while they do tend to stand out, they actually can pull double duty as a statement and a basic.
Now with that said, not all jumpsuits are created equal, so here are a few tips for finding a jumpsuit that works for you:
// Fit is super important so don’t be afraid to have it altered. I actually had my tailor bring up the crotch area on this one because it sat too low on me (I have a really short torso). Other common adjustments are the length of the “straps”, i.e. the shoulder area or the length of the legs.
// Figure out your lifestyle, and which type of jumpsuit works for you. As a stay at home mom, this is the perfect jumpsuit for me because it basically feels like I’m wearing pajamas. If you work, maybe find one with a bit of structure to it, and if you get out of the house a lot, but still have a more casual lifestyle look for something in between.
// Pay attention to the fabric (yep applies here too). Drape is really important with jumpsuits. Cheap fabric will almost always lay awkwardly, and there is nothing more awkward than a jumpsuit that clings to all the wrong places (ya know what I’m saying?). This doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot, just look for secondhand options on eBay or Poshmark that are made from nicer fabric.
Well there you have it! Have you tried out a jumpsuit? Love em or hate em?
