How to wear Printed Jumpsuits: A Style Guide for Every Budget

Hi everyone – thanks so much for stopping by! This is a follow up post from my jumpsuit series. It can be tricky to wear prints because they can easily look overwhelming. This post addresses which prints you can you choose, and what you should look out for. I’ve broken it down into price points again, to cover a wide range of prints. I hope you enjoy it! Please let me know your thoughts in the comments 😉

Under $50:

1. If you’re new to printed jumpsuits, start with a muted neutral like navy. Pair with your favourite gold or silver accessories. See more at NewLook ($42).

2. Add in a dash of colour to a neutral base for striking effects! (Akira jumpsuit, $35.90).

3. Pair bright prints with a structured silhouette. Accessorise with neutrals such as black or gunmetal to balance the print and create a polished look: Desire Clothing ($45.78).

4. Go for abstract paisley to freshen up an old classic: Charlotte Russe ($28.99). This would look great with red accessories.

5. Break up prints with block colours! Even a black panel adds interest to a neutral piece like this NewLook jumpsuit ($42). Follow the symmetry with a black belt, or do some colour blocking with bright accessories and makeup.

Under $100:

6-9. Go for interesting and exciting prints:

Accessorise according to your personality: tame it with neutral accessories, or break the rules with a cropped, tailored blazer in a bright hue.

14. Add symmetry and structure to prints with vertical panels: The Iconic ($199.95). I’d wear this in summer, on a holiday. Bliss!

15-16: Subtle snakeskin print brings sophistication to your look. Pair with neutral/gold accessories for a daring and fresh evening look: (Bebe, $129 and Michael Kors, $224)

    • Oh shucks! Great choices 🙂 I’m flattered that you read all the way through actually haha. I write too much because I’m an aesthetic sucker for beautiful, stylish clothes 🙂

      In this day when many people have such short attention spans, I sometimes wonder. But who would I be if I were not myself? lol so the next time I feel like writing 3000 words of style advice on another item of clothing, i might just do that 😉 thanks so much for stopping by dolly! hope you’re having a lovely day 🙂

      • Hehe don’t worry, it’s your blog and you can be long worded if you want to be 😀

        I do find that most people just click ‘like’ on a post rather than even skim it but there’s some who will read, like us it seems! I wrote a piece on turtle/pol necks that was similar in length recently lol!

        All the best!
