How to style your jumpsuits, rompers


A jumpsuits or romper is a garment that incorporates both the top and bottom in one piece. It was originally referred to as the utilitarian one-piece garments. The first jumpsuit was designed in 1919 by Florentine Thayat, as a futuristic and subversive outfit and many years later, the jumpsuit, whether in full-length form or in an abbreviated romper style, still seems to be the calling card of a gutsy lady. With so many types and designs available today, almost any woman can find a jumpsuit that will make her look smart and sophisticated. It’s all about finding the right fit and style for you.

The jumpsuit is a versatile piece of clothing every woman should have and wear during any season. If anything, a basic jumpsuit is a great base that can be layered with a jacket or blazer to create a perfect work look. There’s nothing like a jumpsuit to whittle down your morning what-to-wear routine. It doubles perfectly as an after-work wear as you can ditch the blazer or jacket and your look is transformed effortlessly from day to night. Giving the illusion of a top and bottom, it’s completely unfussy, as you never have to worry about your blouse staying tucked in, and it feels perfectly polished for the office. When choosing your own 9-to-5 jumpsuit, be conscious of the fit, think tailored and not too tight or clingy. You’ll want to leave the body-hugging numbers for your off-duty hours. You can use a belt in your midsection area to create the illusion of a snugger waistline.

You’ll want to make sure it fits perfectly, so visit the tailor if needed, you can have it taken in a bit at the waist for a more flattering look. Also make sure the hemline hits around the ends of your fingertips to avoid any onesie comparisons. Everyone is wearing a jumpsuit but if you follow these easy tips, you will look flawless even if you have never worn one before.
