Here’s how to rock a jumpsuit when you’re curvy!
Find the right shape
With any tricky new trend, it is always best to try on a few options before making your decision. If you’re into structured pieces, opt for jumpsuits in a stiffer fabric, like heavyweight cotton, that skims over your curves. If you’re into billowy silhouettes, try a wide-leg jumpsuit with a tie-waist to emphasize your waistline but keep you cool. Regardless of the fabric you go for, a V-neck or scoop neckline will be your best allies for balancing your frame.
Start with solids
Make your jumpsuit a statement piece by choosing a solid shade in your favorite hue. You can go head-to-toe tonal by choosing shoes in a matching color for a streamlined and leg-lengthening style. The darker the color, the more streamlined your shape—but don’t be afraid to try the pastel end of the spectrum for a lighter touch!
Add an extra layer
If you’re looking to make your jumpsuit more than a one-piece wonder, add an extra layer for more shape, warmth or visual interest. Create structure with a fitted blazer (the key to wearing a jumpsuit at work) or keep it breezy with an open front cardigan.
Now that you’ve got the jumpsuit covered, try sampling its stylish cousin: the romper!
