It’s official: the jumpsuit has graduated from a drab piece of work clothing to a wardrobe staple for chic soirees, summer weddings and even Royal Ascot – news is just in it finally made the dress code for the exclusive horse racing event this year. Favoured by the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Gwen Stefani and Solange Knowles (girl made history with her white wedding romper!), the jumpsuit is a classy choice that allows the wearer ease of movement and comfort without compromising on style. Here are a few ideas to rock the dressy jumpsuit trend this spring:
1. Be Bold
A red jumpsuit is a bold choice that’ll make every head turn in your direction. Red is the colour of passion and power: it infuses an aura of confidence around the wearer that’ll make you look irresistible. Accessorize with a black clutch and nude lipstick – let the jumpsuit do the talking.
2. Cape x Jumpsuit
Capes were the hottest trend of the winter and now they’ve breezed their way into your spring wardrobes, too. This sleek black jumpsuit comes with its own cape, which can be worn in the back for cover or in the front for volume. Sprinkle in some colour with a fringe bag.
3. Monochromatic Contrast
Monochromatic style is all about minimalist chic. A sheer, embroidered lace sleeve adds a feminine touch to the black and white pattern of the jumpsuit, while the low V-neck gives it a sexy flair.
4. Take A Bow
The chicest way to spice up a black jumpsuit? Add a contrasting white bow in the back. It creates a beautiful flowing movement that makes it look like you’re gliding on a cloud. Finish off with a nude pair of towering heels.
5. The Nude Look
Who says you need to be outlandish to stand out? With its low V neck, tie around the neck and sheer overskirt, this antique rose jumpsuit adds a retro spin on a modern silhouette. Accentuate the vintage vibe with a small hand-painted statement bag.
