One piece Jumpsuits will forever be in style, maybe because its a one piece can make a complete outfit type thing. Jumpsuits make it simple to dress up or down while looking stylish AF! It's a one and done piece. Great for when traveling and easy to pack.

But jumpsuits can be a little intimidating and if not worn correctly can look sloppy or make you look shorter or wider than you are. There’s a reason you mainly see black and white jumpsuits. They are easier to wear, and you don’t run the worry of looking like a trendy fool in a crazily printed jumpsuit. With a black or white jumpsuit, you’ll look usually always look stylish and chic.

Personally, like with most of my clothing, I opt for the more classic colors pieces. I do love the color, print, and different jumpsuit textures but with my petite frame I have to be careful or pieces can swallow me whole.

Let’s review how to wear a jumpsuit and the points you should keep in mind next time you’re putting together a jumpsuit outfit.

Purchasing a jumpsuit that fits your body perfectly is key to looking polished and put together. Don’t wear a jumpsuit that is too tight or too loose. (unless your into that)

If you wear a jumpsuit that’s too tight, you might give off that Catwoman vibe, with your goodies smiling at random people or you might feel uncomfortable. If you wear a jumpsuit that is too loose, you will completely lose your figure, and the jumpsuit will overwhelm your body.

The elegant white jumpsuit she's wearing has a strappy style top half, a slim fit, with soft cotton fabric. It’s not too big or too small, and I’m able to show off my figure by showing the right amount of skin with the halter top and having the accentuated waist.

Gymdeity always has a lot of stylish jumpsuits to shop from. So that is the first place I would recommend you start your search for your perfect jumpsuit.

I have to emphasize the point of not losing your figure. A lot of jumpsuits have either a cloth belt the same color as the jumpsuit or you can easily add your belt to define your waist. Cinching your jumpsuit at the waist is a great way to add some femininity to the look and give you that curvy look.

Add dimensions to your outfits! Even though the jumpsuits could stand alone, I wanted to show you how you can easily add a blazer or jacket to give it some personality.

If you’ve never worn a jumpsuit before adding a blazer or jacket will make you feel more comfortable than without. It breaks up the look and adds a layer to make the jumpsuit more subtle.

When selecting a blazer or jacket go with one that enhances the jumpsuit and goes with the occasion. This outfit could work for a cocktail party, formal evening dinner or going out to fancy drinks with friends. Consider where you are going to wear your jumpsuit and select a blazer that either brings it up a notch or makes it more casual.

I wanted to create an elegant look with this grey jumpsuit, so I selected a black leather jacket with zippers for personality. 

Pick color tones that are similar to your jumpsuit or contrasting. Like, in this case, I went with a black and grey jumpsuit outfit. If you’re wearing a pretty light color jumpsuit you might want to wear a match light color or a darker color blazer. Just make sure the two items match.

If you’re wondering what shoes to wear with a jumpsuit, always opt for heels! Unless it’s a very casual jumpsuit for the beach. Wearing heels is a style rule to follow because you don’t want to appear short or frumpy. Create the illusion of long and lean by not having the bottom of the jumpsuit bunch up. If I were to wear this wide-leg jumpsuit with sandals or flats, the bottom half would look pretty sloppy. It would look like I’m wearing a jumpsuit that doesn’t fit, and I would look shorter.

The shoes you wear with wide-leg jumpsuits need to be on the skinny side. Stay away from wedges, clogs, or anything with a thick heel. This is especially true if the fabric is light and airy, like in the white jumpsuits.

If you’re a jumpsuit virgin ease into it and wear a solid black, grey, navy, or colored jumpsuit. If you’re a little daring, opt for a jumpsuit with a small print, like polka dots, or bright color!

But Black is always a slimming choice!

A solid jumpsuit is elongating since it’s one unbroken vertical line the eye moves easily up and down without interruption.

Once you feel comfortable in a black or white jumpsuit experiment by adding some pattern or splashes of color.

A jumpsuit can easily be dressed up for a formal event. If the style of the jumpsuit is appropriate, then all you have to do is accessorize it to fit the party. Think of a black or white formal jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit I’m wearing in this outfit is a feminine and elegant white jumpsuit with a pleated halter. Since it’s more classy in style, I easily dressed it up with heels, a black tuxedo blazer, gold accessories, and a dainty handbag. I also wore my hair is a fancy bun to go with the style of the outfit. You could also opt to wear a braided updo! I love fancy braid hairstyles because they look fancy, your hair stays in place, and it’s a little extra that levels up your entire look.

When shopping for a jumpsuit there are a few things to keep in mind. A pant jumpsuit is incredibly chic, comfortable, and easy to wear.

If this is your first jumpsuit purchase one in a solid color. Here's a super safe black and grey one-piece jumpsuits because you want to be able to wear it over and over and all year around. Also, a solid color lengthens your body and is oh so flattering. If you absolutely have to wear a pattern go for something subtle.

If you’re going to invest in only one jumpsuit make sure it works for every season. The jumpsuit wearing in this post is sleeveless and has a V neckline so it’s ideal year round. You can wear it like this during the spring and summer than simply throw on a colored moto jacket when it gets chilly.

Go formal! If you don’t think you will get much use out of your jumpsuit on the casual weekends in the park then get something that can be dressed up. Select a formal color and a silhouette that looks stylish with some statement accessories.

The last point needed to mention is, make sure it fits & have fun! Not too short or too long, not too tight or too loose. The perfect jumpsuit needs to be flattering and you need to feel sexy every time you put it on!
