How to style jumpsuits
Jumpsuits for every occasion
The most unique and special aspect to a jumpsuit is that it’s basically a complete outfit in one. Pull on a jumpsuit and you’ve instantly got yourself a stylish ‘fit. Jumpsuits are chic, comfortable and easy to wear. A jumpsuit is the perfect choice for any occasion, from a cocktail party or formal dinner to an office outfit, casual drinks sesh or comfy travel outfit. The most important thing is to find your own perfect match! A perfectly fitting and flattering jumpsuit is the key to a stylish and well-groomed look. There’s just one thing to look out for and that is that your chosen jumpsuit works with the dress code, once you’ve got that down, you simply need to style it with the most perfect accessories!
How to style a jumpsuit tip #1: Shoes
As we mentioned earlier, a jumpsuit is a whole outfit in one. But however awesome your jumpsuit may be, finding the right pair of shoes to go with it can sometimes prove to be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, there’s tons of options for shoe styles to go with your jumpsuit. A pair of ankle boots instantly add an edge to your look, and choosing shoes in a single colour will make sure that all the focus remains on the hot item in question: the jumpsuit. If you’re looking to add a little spice to your simple jumpsuit, then we say go all out in the colourful shoes department. Looking for a more sexy vibe? Add a pair of killer heels to your jumpsuit, or style a playsuit with knee-high boots for the ultimate sexy look. The perfect summer jumpsuit look calls for sandals! Sandals are available in the cutest bright colours and add a touch of summer sunshine to your outfit. A jumpsuit and sandals combo is elegant yet casual, and we love it!

How to style jumpsuits tip #2: Jewellery
While a jumpsuit makes a statement on its own, once you style it with some jewellery by My Jewellery it will really come to life! Especially more subtle jumpsuits will really benefit from the right jewellery, such as statement jewellery like the Chunky Chain collection. The Chunky Chain pieces are super cool and edgy, and we love wearing the chain bracelet or chain necklace for an extra boost. Is your jumpsuit pretty out there on it’s own? In that case, more minimalist jewellery pieces would probably work better. The My Jewellery Iconics collection pieces are less out-there but that doesn’t make them any less statement making, these pieces are genuinely timeless and super versatile and the earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings will go with any outfit!
Jumpsuit styling tip #3: Accessories
There is one accessory that is absolutely unmissable when styling your jumpsuit, and that has got to be: a belt! A belt is the perfect accessory to add a touch of femininity to your look, creating curves in all the right places. Go for a belt in a matching colour to the jumpsuit for a subtle waist-cinching look, or add a belt with studded details for an added flourish. The ultimate finishing touch? A matching bag, of course! If you’re going out for the night, go for an elegant handbag, perfect for just the essentials, like your phone, keys and lippie. Looking for a more daytime appropriate ‘fit? In that case, tote bags are the way to go! Mix and match the colour of your bag to your jumpsuit and you’re ready to rock the day!
Jumpsuit styling tip #4: Layering
When styling a jumpsuit for the colder months, we recommend layering over a cosy sweater. Sweaters happen to be majorly on-trend at the moment so layering won’t just keep you warm, it’ll also look super cool. Major perk to layering? Well, it’s easy to take off the layers whenever you get too warm. If you’re wearing a sleeveless jumpsuit, we absolutely love wearing a turtleneck underneath, cute, comfortable and warm, what more could you ask for?! Style this look with the right accessories and take it from casual to fancy in a matter of seconds! Read our blog on how to layer clothes for Winter for even more tips & tricks.
Jumpsuit styling tip #5: Coats & blazers
Jumpsuits are appropriate all year long! Rock your jumpsuit in spring and summer with a cute t-shirt, a gilet or a blouse, and come autumn or winter add a jacket or blazer, for the perfect weather appropriate look. When layering a coat or jacket over your jumpsuit, make sure to match the colour tones so it doesn’t look too out of place. Go for colours that compliment each other as opposed to fighting each other. A neutral jumpsuit looks great when paired with a black, navy or beige blazer, while a brightly coloured jumpsuit looks amazing when styled with an equally bright blazer in the exact same colour or a colour from the opposite side of the colour spectrum, such as pink and green, orange and blue, red and red, such a seriously cool colour-blocked outfit. Finish with the right accessories and your look is complete! Look stylish, feminine, classy, edgy or cool, whichever look you go for, a jumpsuit is the way to go. Feel ready to style your jumpsuit?
