Jump Onto The Jumpsuit Bandwagon
07 th Dec 2015

If you follow fashion trends and read fashion blogs online, then you would have noticed one trend that has been in vogue for quite some time now - that of the jumpsuit.

A jumpsuit is nothing but a garment that comprises of a top and ankle length pants sewn together as a single piece. 

The top and the bottom can be of different colours - giving the appearance of separates or can be made of the same fabric throughout.

Jumpsuits in India are slowly making an appearance on the high street, thanks to them being a favourite with celebrities who define fashion trends in India.

We consider the jumpsuit to be a versatile garment because it can be worn for both formal and casual occasions, so that wearing one to work would be nothing less than a style statement. A chic jumpsuit paired with the right kind of accessories can elevate your style in a way that few other outfits can. What’s more, it is an effortless outfit to own and wear - all in one piece, you pull it on and you are done! We can’t think of any other outfit that can make you stand out in the crowd, so easily!

Though jumpsuits in India are gaining popularity, not everyone has jumped onto the trend, thanks to the apprehensions around the way it looks. If not worn right, it can be an unflattering outfit that can make you look like a painter. So what is the best way of wearing a jumpsuit?

  • Wear it with a belt - This is a no brainer. If you don’t want your jumpsuit to look like a sack, then cinch your waist with a belt. You add some definition and structure to the outfit and also make it more feminine in the process.
  • Pair it with a jacket - A jacket adds some structure to a jumpsuit and also helps break its monotony and makes the ensemble more formal. Given that jumpsuits in India are still a nascent trend, it would be a great way to make a style statement by wearing one to your next meeting with a contrasting jacket thrown on!
  • All black is a good choice - If you are a jumpsuit virgin, go for an all-black piece. It is a fail-proof way to make a style statement and also to get into the groove of wearing a jumpsuit.
  • Look for a flattering cut - A badly cut or a body hugging jumpsuit can kill the look. Choose fluidic fabrics in a cut that accentuates your curves but does not cling to your body.
  • Don’t forget the accessories - Jumpsuits, especially solid ones tend to be monotonous outfits that need some dressing up. So every time you wear a solid jumpsuit, don’t forget to throw in a layered necklace that will add a new element to the overall look. Exercise caution with printed jumpsuits to avoid looking loud.
