How To Style A Jumpsuit For Your Body

I love jumpsuits but they can be oh-so-tricky. Here are styling options you can buy right here with tips based on body type.  Have fun!

Taiho Black Jumpsuit US $171 (Buy it now)

Why I like it:  There is built-in bra support so it works fairly well unless you’re over a DD cup.

The straight-leg design works for all body types (oval body types look for options w/o a mid-section seam or belt), and the adjustable straps give leeway for longer torsos.

The deep-V neckline is sexy and on-trend. If your style is a bit more modest, add a bandeau or a sheer top underneath.

And the little extra fabric below the waist gives room for a triangle body type and a nice curve for an inverted triangle body type. If you have thick shoulders, try a version with wider straps.

Be sure to check the measurements in the sizing chart before ordering. And alterations are your friends 🙂 Keep scrolling for more helpful styling tips!

If you’re a triangle body type (carrying your weight in hip, bottom or thighs), you can bring the attention upward and create balance with a jacket. Ovals can elongate and slim with a long jacket or cardigan. Go glamour-girl or street-savvy– depending on your tastes.

A strappy or criss-cross sandal inspired by the 1970’s hit the mark. Stick with black to elongate the legs. If you have long legs, color doesn’t matter.

Clutches are the cool option and a throwback to true 1970’s fashion but with a modern twist. Both are big enough to carry a phone, ID, some cash and a credit card, and lipstick.

    I adore jumpsuits. It takes a little bit to get over the whole fear of going to the bathroom in them though ; )
