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 ūüėČ

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.

How to wear Jumpsuits: A Complete Style Guide for Every Budget (Part 1/5)

The jumpsuit is here to stay. Far from being that temporary trend back in 2010, celebrities, designers and even couturiers have adopted them as a modern go-to silhouette over the last few years.

I recently saw Delta Goodrem on the cover of InStyle Australia’s March 2014 wearing a striped monochrome Zimmermann jumpsuit. It reminded me of their effortlessness and charm. There’s a strong, androgynous interplay between masculine and feminine lines. Like ying and yang, they come together to create a mysterious, harmonious contradiction about the woman who’s wearing one.

Why wear jumpsuits?

  • They can be incredibly flattering on every body type if worn right
  • They can be so versatile that you can dress it up or down to wear it anywhere from during the day.. to the red carpet.
  • They’re classy as hell and really show off your confidence

Yet, jumpsuits can be tricky ūüėČ If you wear the wrong one for your body, they can make you look shorter or heavier.¬†You just have to know how to wear them!

So, I scoured the internet for the best jumpsuits for every budget, ranging from $50 to over $1000. Call me crazy, but I looked at over 3000 jumpsuits to narrow down my favourites to create a detailed style guide for you.

Each part will address one price point and include my style tips. I hope it inspires you, and gives you ideas about what to look for when styling your jumpsuit.

Okay, let’s get started!
