The Jumpsuit – From Work Clothes to It-Piece.
The jumpsuit used to be a predominantly functional piece of clothing, firstly for skydivers and then for mechanics, race car drivers or jet pilots. But these days, the jumpsuit could not be missed in women’s fashion. It had been wiped off the fashion world almost completely but then, in the 90’s, there was a short and quiet comeback and today it is extremely popular again. Now jumpsuits are worn très chic, combined with high shoes and small clutches and they are an awesome alternative for the dress. If you want to be en vogue this year, you simply have to wear a jumpsuit and combine it elegantly with feminine accessories.
Jumpsuit varieties and combinations.
The term “jumpsuit” implies in a broader sense all different kinds of varieties of a one-piece trouser suit. There are different kinds – long and short, with long and short sleeves and trouser legs. No matter if tight cat suits or wide trousers-style dresses, patterned or plain and made from most different fabrics and materials, they are all part of the “jumpsuit” family. In case the jumpsuit might be especially ostentatious because of its strong patterns, it is recommended to refrain from wearing too much jewellery and rather choose a tender necklace or a discreet bracelet. If, however, you are wearing a plain Jumpsuit you can of course combine it with more eye-catching pieces, like big bangles or a beautiful statement necklace. In order to make your legs appear a bit longer, high shoes are always a good choice with jumpsuits. A special recommendation is the choice of fine strap sandals that make your feet look exquisitely pretty – just the right outfit for an evening at the bar. You will be quite the showstopper in a jumpsuit!
The Jumpsuit – the true all-rounder.
Because of its unique shape the jumpsuit can give you – if combined properly – a stunning figure. If you are wearing size 34 or 36 (UK: 8 & 10) you can pick almost anything in the jumpsuit collection, such as colourful or patterned pieces. For women, wearing a bigger size, the jumpsuit is also ideal. Just remember to choose mostly plain pieces (preferably black). Additionally a belt, underlining the waistline, can have the most wonderful effects and can make you appear a little slimmer. The darker version of the trendy jumpsuit has an enormously stretching effect and makes your legs – when combined with high shoes –endlessly long! Thus, the jumpsuit is incredibly versatile, no matter if barefooted on the beach or chic at a cocktail party.
