4 Ways to Style a Jumpsuit

Hello my loves,

So, as I explained in yesterday's post, I took the photos for this post on Friday and then ended up falling asleep afterwards and when I went to edit them I really wasn't happy with how they turned out. It was a bit gloomy and late in the day when I took them and I felt I hadn't styled the outfits well enough. So I decided I would do a re-shoot and when I saw the sun shinning this morning I knew it was now or never before the storm comes! (Apparently we're expecting a storm here in the South :/)

I really hope you like how I styled them. I had so much fun re-shooting these outfits as I took a lot more time finding the right necklace or belt etc to go with the outfit so I'm really happy with how they have turned out, and so glad I didn't post my first try!!

1) The jumpsuit on it's own:


First of all I shot the jumpsuit on it's own and styled it for a night out or an evening meal. I thought a statement necklace would look really nice, especially my dark silver necklace with pastel gems to compliment the navy jumpsuit, shown in my latest You Tube video. I then went for a silver sequin belt, a navy clutch and my H&M lace up heels to finish, and not to forget some deep pink lippy!

2) Layering the jumpsuit with a jumper:


This look is slightly more casual and to show that you don't necessarily have to have the top half of the jumpsuit showing. Finding the right jumper to layer over the top of the jumpsuit can make for a great casual and comfortable outfit, especially in the winter months. However, it's a bit of a problem when you need to use the ladies room, although I guess jumpsuits are in general (I'm sure we've all made the mistake of wearing a playsuit or jumpsuit on a night out and having to strip off just to use the loo!). For shoes I went for my brown platforms which I bought from Primark a few years ago because they are super comfy and easy to walk in and add a little height!

3) Layering with a blouse underneath:


I really love this look and can see myself sporting this a lot! Laying a jumpsuit by wearing a blouse underneath is great during this season to add another layer in the colder months and also changes up the jumpsuit and the whole look of it. Any blouse to compliment this gorgeous silky, navy material will look great, which means you can get lots of use from your jumpsuit with all sorts of blouses underneath and create lots of different outfits! A firm favourite for me and with my favourite hat it's the perfect match.

4) A more casual feel with a simple tee:


Lastly I styled the jumpsuit with a simple white t-shirt underneath for a much more casual look, and despite the jumpsuit being silky it really tones it down and makes for a great everyday outfit. No shoes would look better than a pair of white trainers to match, and I actually wore this to work on Friday and was super comfortable! I added my chunky gold chain necklace for a little detail and a simple black waist belt to finish.

So those are my 4 ways to style a jumpsuit! Which one is your favourite? I'd really love to see which one comes out on top :) If you have any other ways of styling a jumpsuit I would love to hear and try them out!
