How to Wear a Jumpsuit, Two Ways

It’s official. Jumpsuits are in and I’m sooo happy about it. While rompers have been around for a while now, the jumpsuit is an even more versatile take on what I like to call the onesie trend. Because jumpsuits are essentially pants, they can be work-appropriate and are great for any season. My goal is to convince you just how versatile this piece is by showing you how to wear a jumpsuit for different occasions. Just a few changes in outerwear and accessories can transform a jumpsuit from a sexy night out look to a casual weekend outfit. The base of these looks is this classic black jumpsuit from ASOS. Find out just how easy it is to master the jumpsuit below!

Go Dressy:

Jumpsuits are great for mixing up your nighttime wardrobe. When you’re sick of the skinny jeans + a blouse + pumps combo, try a chic jumpsuit instead. Dress it up with a fitted leather jacket (roll the sleeves up for an edgier vibe!) and sleek gold jewelry. I’m not one to get too dressed up, so I toned down the look with tan leather wedges. Add some color with a magenta clutch!

Go Casual:

Ready to dress down your jumpsuit? Cardigans are a great way to make any outfit look more casual. Add a slouchy cardigan, remove the fancy jewelry, and swap the heels for some easy flats. Try rolling up the pants of the jumpsuit for a more relaxed vibe too! Bring out your day bag (my go-to is this convertable leather one from Madewell) and you have an outfit perfect for weekend brunches or casual hangouts with friends.
