It’s a misunderstood piece of clothing as most people think it’s unflattering and not very versatile. But I’m bringing in the Fashion MythBusters (me) to debunk both of these theories. It’s all about choosing the right pieces for your body, thinking outside the square to create suitable looks for your shape or occasion, and adding personality with your accessories.
Coming into colder weather, the timing couldn’t be more perfect to add a jumpsuit to your winter wardrobe – it’s a strong AW14 trend and ideal for those nights out when a snuggly knit and jeans just doesn’t cut it. It will keep you warm yet stylish, with no mini dresses or goosebumps in sight. Win! Here are three ways I wear my jumpsuit, whether I want to take it out for dinner, on a weekend excursion or even to the office.
- NIGHT – The jumpsuit is hot as it is, so let it shine by only adding killer heels, statement jewellery and an evening clutch. Gorgeous hair and makeup works a treat too!
- CASUAL – Dress down with casual pieces like denim, tan boots, crop t-shirts layered over the top and shirts tied around the waist.
- OFFICE – Help your jumpsuit look less ‘bar’ and more ‘boardroom’ by smartening it up with a sharp blazer, patent pumps and a tote bag.
