In my opinion there’s one fashion item above all else that never fails to highlight its wearer as a bonafide fashion girl: The jumpsuit. Whether worn on the red carpet instead of a glammed up gown, in replacement of a wedding dress, (remember when Solange broke the internet wearing a jumpsuit at her wedding?) or on the streets of Fashion Week by an editor, blogger, or model- there’s a reason It – girls can’t get enough of the versatile one – piece.
However as wonderful and as stylish as the jumpsuit is, the one thing that often causes problems is the not so easy access to it when it comes to using the ladies! Now as a bonafide fan of the piece I would have to agree; but once you get past that issue it is the most versatile piece you can ever have in your wardrobe. This is why, when I spotted this tailored red jumpsuit on the Romwe site for a reduced price of £13.60 I snapped it up as quickly as possible. At such a low price I wasn’t expecting the quality to be good but I was wrong. The quality and the fit were superb, with my only adjustments being to the sleeves – and that was purely based on my preference. When styling this look it was important to me that I kept it simple with little or no jewellery/ accessories as I wanted the focus to be on the shape and the streamline of the jumpsuit.
Here are some guides to choosing the best jumpsuit for your shape
The most basic of jumpsuits designs features a top attached to trousers or shorts and a cinched waist. The great thing about it is that its versatile. Designers play on the basic design and create different styles of jumpsuits. When looking for the right jumpsuit, you should always keep these 3 things in mind:
Purchase the right length
Jumpsuits come in various lengths and sizes. Taller women can often get away with sweeping the floor length pieces, while it is advisable for petite women to stick to the knee length. However if its a tailored piece then go for the longer length and team it up with heels. Aside from leg lengths they can also come in different sleeve lengths. Women who have shapely arms have the option to go bare with halter top, sleeveless, or even tube top jumpsuits. Long sleeved jumpsuits look elegant and classy, and can also be a good cover up if you’re conscious of your arms.
Buy a solid colour jumpsuit
When in doubt, a solid block of colour in a jumpsuit looks great on any woman. The continuous silhouette created by the single colour lengthens the body and creates a flattering profile.
Buy the right fit and size
The right fit is essential when buying any piece of clothing, and even more so when it comes to jumpsuits. An ill fitting jumpsuit can highlight unwanted bulges. When in doubt, a good rule when fitting a jumpsuit is to ensure the fabric remains loose and draped while cinching the waist.
