Are you ready to take the Plunge??...The Jumpsuit

11.21.2013

Definition; Jumpsuit - a garment incorporating trousers and a sleeved top in one piece, worn as a fashion item, protective garment, or uniform. 

The 70s and 80s saw jumpsuits feature in a big way, all spangles, disco, shoulder pads and drama. They are having a revival but in a more subtle, understated way. Jumpsuits are the ideal alternative to the little black dress and require minimal styling to create a stunning look.


Here are the streetstylers rocking the jumpsuit/boilersuit:
Gorgeous gold belt (Oasis has similar) and gold cuff (Zara has these) on a casual jumpsuit.
The jumpsuit is brought to life with fabulous red shoes and a pop of turquoise and gold.
Gorgeous patterned jumpsuit, toned down with black accessories..fabulous.
Simple and stylish
This is a 'wow' outfit only for the brave!
Olivia Palermo styles her jumpsuit with a leather baseball jacket, gold skinny belt and black ankle boots..stunning.
Simple perfection, accessorised with gold jewellery.
I adore this laidback look, looks great with heels.
Another fabulous boilersuit look, prettied up with sandals.
Kate Moss rocking the boiler suit, add a vest top and suede ankle boots for a cool look.

The key is to try on loads of jumpsuits/boilersuits, they are all different body lengths so it is important to get one that fits you. Don't give up, when you get it right they really look stunning and are possibly the easiest thing to throw on!

Now for the best on the high street:
Reiss Roana Navy Satin Trim Jumpsuit £195
The subtle blue colour of this jumpsuit is a fabulous alternative to black and will see you through to the summer. Pair with gold or leopard accessories for stunning Christmas Party look.
 
Ganni via Asos Woven Jumpsuit £150
I am a big fan of the brand Ganni, this jumpsuit is in a stunning print, could be worn day and night and has been perfectly styled above, or wear with black ankle boots and parka for a casual day look.

Asos Love Jumpsuit with Cross Back £40

This is a stunning jumpsuit the back detail calls for minimal accessorising.  When wearing wide leg jumpsuit remember to ensure the trouser just skims the floor to make it super flattering...see the red jumpsuit on the streetstyler above for correct length.
Phase Eight Lulu Geo Jumpsuit £110
This is a super flattering jumpsuit, the tailored waist and draped front ensures you are cinched in at the waist but skims over all bumps and lumps. Team this with black shoeboots/ankle boots or clash with leopard print heels and black clutch.
Warehouse Cutwork Back Jumpsuit £80
This is a fabulous jumpsuit with a beautiful cutwork detail at the back, again keep accessories minimal the jumpsuit does all the work for you. Wear with animal print courts or beige ankle boots.

Topshop PJ Wrap Jumpsuit £60
An effortlessly cool jumpsuit, wear with fine gold necklaces and a gold cuff bracelet and some fabulous leopard print heels.
Warehouse Denim Boiler Suit £65
A super cool boiler suit, wear at the weekend with a pair of trainers and for a night out with a pair of block colour heels or animal print. Pile up gold bangles and cuffs to dress up. 
New Look Black Mesh Yoke Jumpsuit £27.99 
This is a dressy jumpsuit requiring minimal accessories. 
Coast Rozelda Jumpsuit via Asos £110
Zara Knitted Jumpsuit £59.99
I have not yet tried this jumpsuit on but I love the look of it, probably not dressy enough for a Christmas party but fabulous for casual Christmas drinks..cosy weekend pub...or winter shopping.
New Look Embellished Neck Jumpsuit £29.99
I love the detail on the neckline it makes this jumpsuit look extra special.
Anthropologie Jet Crepe Jumpsuit £98
I have bought a couple of jumpsuits from Anthropologie and they fit like a dream, the fabric is heavy so it drapes and is really flattering.

Next Red Crepe Jumpsuit £50
For the brave, you will be noticed in this jumpsuit..it has had reviews on the website and I would team with leopard print heels and clutch.

My Style:


Jumpsuit: Anthropologie
Jacket: New Look
Leopard Courts: Nine West.

Have you already taken the leap to jumpsuits, are you ready to swap your LBD for the All in One?
Would love to hear your comments.

  1. Hey,

    Would love the Phase Eight and the Warehouse. Thing is- What shoes to wear to keep warm on school run. Does it really work with boots?
    You have given me inspiration but don't know if I'm brave enough to take the jumpsuit plunge!

    Yet...

  2. Noo. Not brave enough yet. I have to do some exercise before I don one of those. I've seen my backside in one and it's not pretty. Something akin to a bag of sprouts springs to mind. I told you - not pretty.

    But if you can pull it off - then brilliant. Its a fabulous look.

  5. I'm on the fence with the jumpsuit...I think I need more of a supermodel figure to carry it off! Loved seeing that selection. Of course, my favourite would have to be the Reiss one #expensivetaste :) x
