Tricky Trend

Jumpsuits, they’re a style statement… the all in one garment is similar to a dress but so many clients find the all in one a tricky trend to wear.

So, what to look for when buying a jumpsuit?

The right fit is key; styles that skim, not cling to your frame are most flattering. Then consider garment details that will visually balance your proportions & create a slimmer silhouette.

  • Look for waist definition, think belt, elastic or seams, it will break up the mass of fabric.

  • Do you have short legs? Then slimmer or slightly cropped trouser styles are best.

  • Do you have longer legs? They will look best in wider, longer trouser shapes.

  • Do you have a smaller bust & shoulders? Look for styles that balance your hips, think off the shoulder or boatnecks.

  • Do you have a large bust or shoulders? Look for v-necks and wider trouser styles to balance your silhouette.

Consider colour, prints and pattern too.

  • One colour will visually slim & elongate your silhouette.

  • Prints can be flattering too, look for a pattern that is proportion to your frame to avoid being overwhelmed.

Accessories, especially shoes can make all the difference to creating a chic look too. Styles that visually lengthen the silhouette, think heels, pointed toes or ankle straps, are best.
