3 Ultra-Modern Ways to Wear a Jumpsuit

I am so ecstatic that the jumpsuit is back in fashion. Whenever I see the trend resurfacing, I feel compelled to write about it.

In the past I only featured jumpsuits for the gal who has a longer torso and legs. Now more options exist for every gal, especially when paired with certain blazers that help tweak the look.

Overall, I think jumpsuits are as easy to throw on as a dress. But, jumpsuits will give you a different, empowering, sexy feel. However, I must state that wearing jumpsuits without heels is rarely an option. Check out some of my finds and surely you’ll migrate to one of these cute options.

My first feature is a nice example of how color blocking instantly glamorizes a look. This V-neckline long sleeve jumpsuit is a classic. The color blocking is along the sides with the black and white, and also along the black and yellowish color on the arms. I love the pockets and the ability to play with this look by adding a bold necklace as an accent piece, or try the teased combed hair with fabulous chandelier earrings.

My next pick is cutting edge. This high-neck backless jumpsuit is comfortable, yet ultra sassy. I really admire this style and think it’s executed well. The blue-ish color and the straight pant change it up from the ever so popular wide leg. Take advantage of this particular style by wearing shoes that have been waiting for their debut.

On the more mellow side of things… check out this hip and laid back jumpsuit. Channel your inner bohemian side and have fun. This feature is a bold pattern print. The larger print pattern allows you to play with the look by layering multiple, delicate accessories to add to the look but not take away from it. This jumpsuit allows you to showcase a nice drapey cardigan or jacket as well. The elegant wide leg makes it crucial to wear big heels but, don’t worry, they won’t be the talk of the outfit.
