In Focus: Jumpsuits Here’s All You Need To Know

Jumpsuits are all-in-one garments that women can wear to give a powerful fashion statement. It can be a stylish staple in any wardrobe and can be used for different seasons – provided you know how to wear it the right way.

Jump In on a Timeless Trend

As wonderful as jumpsuits are, it’s puzzling why not everyone is jumping to get their hands on one. Some may be intimidated by this head-to-toe, one-and-done garment simply because they don’t know how to style it or when to wear it. However, if you know the basics, you can certainly pull off how to wear these timeless jumpsuits.

We always keep you in mind when we design and curate our collections. To help you get the most out of a jumpsuit, we are delighted to share a few facts on what to keep in mind when investing in this versatile piece of clothing.

1.        How do I choose a jumpsuit?

Jumpsuits come in a variety of styles. Just as you choose dresses or other clothing items, choosing one must be guided by your personal preferences and requirements, and aligned with what your style is all about.

For first timers, ask yourself why you want to buy a jumpsuit. Is it for a particular event that you are attending? Do you want a casual cut or a more formal evening design? What would you want in a jumpsuit? Should you pick one with a laid-back cut, one with sleeves, or one with intricate detailing?

Once you know your reason and preferred style, you should find one with the perfect fit. Don’t go for jumpsuits that are too tight or too loose. They should make you look polished and well put together.

For women with tall physiques, go for wide-leg jumpsuits that graze just above the ground. If you’re shorter, it’s best to choose slim, cropped styles.

 2.        When can I wear a jumpsuit?

Jumpsuits are trans-seasonal. This means you can wear them during the spring or summer, but you can also wear them in autumn or winter. The key is to know how to mix and match the jumpsuit with your current wardrobe pieces. It is also more sustainable this way. At Scarlett Poppies, we strive to produce timeless designs made with natural materials, a choice contributing to a better tomorrow.

You can wear jumpsuits for casual events such as going on a picnic with friends or strolling through your favorite mall. There are jumpsuit styles that are appropriate for business meetings or work-related activities as well.

You can also wear jumpsuits to formal affairs like a cocktail party or a civil wedding ceremony. It all depends on your jumpsuit’s cut, style and design and how you add other elements to elevate the look.

 3. What can I wear with a jumpsuit?

The beauty with a jumpsuit is that it is a stand-alone piece and if you choose the perfect jumpsuit for the right occasion, you shouldn’t really have to team it up with anything apart from a jacket to keep you warm. And the right pair of shoes that sets the tone for the entire outfit of course.

Wearing jumpsuits is, like dresses, such an easy choice however unlike wearing dresses, they are not as practical when dashing off to the washroom. Always ask yourself before you purchase a jumpsuit, how practical is it to take it on and off a few times during the day? That’s also when we realise that a jumpsuit definitely makes most sense when not layered with too many other items. Who has time for that?

4. How do I glam up a jumpsuit?

You can elevate the look of a jumpsuit (or any piece of clothing) when you choose the right accessories.

Belts typically dress up a jumpsuit and help in defining your waist. Cinching your jumpsuit is a fabulous way to accentuate your figure. It also adds a touch of femininity and gives you that curvy silhouette. If you don’t have belts, you could use scarves to cinch your jumpsuit instead.

Jewelry usually dials up a jumpsuit’s visual volume, especially if you pair bold statement pieces with mono-colored jumpsuits. Unique jewelry pieces create an interesting detail that serves as a secondary focal point in your outfit.

Choose bright hues to add a pop of color to casual styles. Meanwhile, gold pieces would go well for formal occasions. Chunky bracelets, layered necklaces, or large pendant earrings are some terrific options. You can also wear a bright, wide-brimmed hat, cat’s-eye glasses, embroidered fashion masks, or a mirror- or shell-embellished pouch.

5. What shoes do I wear with a jumpsuit?

While jumpsuits can be flattering, some can also pull the eye downwards and tend to make medium-sized women look shorter than they really are. To avoid this trick of the eye, it is best to pair jumpsuits with high heels. Slim stilettos, especially ones in neutral or skin tones, help elongate the body and make you appear taller.

Avoid wearing chunky heels, though, and go for thin heels, strappy sandals, sleek pumps, or sky-high sultry wedges. For effortless easy breezy days, and those of you that are really tall, we would always recommend Ancient Greek’s flat, strappy and handmade leather sandals; www.ancient-greek-sandals.com.
