There’s nothing more flattering than black or a great jumpsuit, so of course a combination of the two would be a great addition this season. The LBD has got some serious competition with this style that will look modest, elegant and elongating all in one. Black makes these styles work appropriate while being a sophisticated enough to transition into a night-time look. Go for a cinched waist style with an interesting texture for a flattering day-to-night outfit, and pair with a sleek heeled boot for an easy all-day look.
The Boilersuit Style
Borrow from the boys for this slightly more relaxed and masculine take on the jumpsuit trend. The boiler-suit is a more casual approach than a typical jumpsuit, with buttons and shorter sleeves usually a staple of this look. The style is more reminiscent of a work suit, typically made in denim or cotton, and the simple silhouette hasn’t changed all that much over time. These styles, however, are modern, and textures like gabardine and wool help elevate the simple look. Team this Nasty Gal pick with a simple sandal for a laid-back outfit, or this Orseund Iris piece with strappy heels for an office-appropriate look.
Perfect for those warmer days, the play suit is the jumpsuits shorter, more summery little sister. This seasons take on play suits are monotone and simple, with hardware and shapes stealing the focus away from colours and prints. Show off the short length of these styles by pairing with strappy sandals or knee length boots in the cooler days. Layering is a must in the autumn, so go for a light material that will keep you cool like MAJE’s satin jumpsuit to let you layer your favourite jacket over the top.
The Elegant Jumpsuit
Transition the jumpsuit trend into evening wear with luxurious fabrics and experimental silhouettes. Wearing a this style to a formal event may have been seen as a no-go in the past but now it’s all about introducing luxe materials and rich colours. Experiment with different shapes and necklines to give the look a fashionable boost. On trend right now is satin, seen in midi dresses and slip skirts, but we think the satin jumpsuits are the way to go. Take a risk in this style, and pair with a pair of platform statement heels and vintage pearls.
