Celebrity Style: The 7 Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing a Jumpsuit

The jumpsuit is a trend that never really fades. It’s been around as long as we can remember and the end of the jumpsuit trend won’t happen any time soon. In fact, we foresee a sudden boom in this fashion piece.

We’ve been spotting a lot of celebrities sporting the jumpsuit look on and off the red carpet. And to ensure that you too will pull off the jumpsuit look perfectly, we came up with this guide to steer you in the right direction.

1. Do stay away from wide-legged jumpsuits if you have a short stature

Sarah Jessica Parker looked a bit stunted in these photos because her jumpsuit engulfed her. Try with tapered pants for a leaner, longer look if you are on the petite side.

2. Do cinch your jumpsuit at the waist with a belt

Like model and blogger Kristina Bazan, it can make a monochromatic jumpsuit look more interesting.

3. Do tailor-fit your jumpsuit to emphasize your form

A lot of people think loose and baggy jumpsuits are more fashionable but this shape isn’t for everyone. Try Scarlett Johansson’s look and opt for something more tailor-fitted. This will lengthen your silhouette and emphasize your curves.

4. Don’t be afraid to try quirkier jumpsuits

A printed piece with wrap and cut out detailing just like the one Willow Shields wore here is a fun addition to your wardrobe. Jumpsuits can get a tad boring so it’s nice to pick elaborate ones for a change. Also accessorize with fun colors.

5. Don’t overaccessorize

The jumpsuit can easily look overdone if you pile on too many accessories. Opt for a clean and effortless look like Kate Hudson’s all-black ensemble here. Her lip color and glossy hair popped out amidst the black.

6. Do try layering a sleek jacket over it

If you are wearing a solid-colored jumpsuit, a printed jacket will heighten the style meter. But if you have a printed jumpsuit like Tulisa Contostavlos’, try adding a simple jacket to tie the look together.

7. Do wear heels

The heels add more length to your silhouette, which will help you avoid looking short in your jumpsuit.
