Jumpsuits seem to be one of those pieces that most women like the look of, but many are afraid to try or feel is a style that’s just not for them. Today I’m making an argument for jumpsuits for everyone!
There are a plethora of options within the jumpsuit genre – it’s really just a matter of finding the one that suits you most. Heck, even Andy Cohen got in on the action with a “RompHim.” Have you heard of this term? A RompHim is just the male version of a romper (AKA a short jumpsuit.)
My jumpsuit is from a few years back, but here’s F21’s newest version of it and here’s another great option. I also really like this one and this one. And here’s plus size option #1, plus option #2, and plus option #3. They can be sooo flattering! I also love the idea of a striped jumpsuit to make even more of a statement.
The key to finding the right jumpsuit means finding the right fit for your body. For example, I love the tapered legs and elastic waist on this romper as it keeps this look comfortable and flattering. A defined waist is a must and you might find that a belt is a nice touch. The options are truly endless.
For those with more of a boyish shape (btw I’m thinking we need a better term for those with really slender bodies – if you have a great one you use please share in the comments!), a really formfitting jumpsuit – also called a catsuit – can be a fab way to create more curves. Like this one if you’re ballsy!
It’s also important to find a jumpsuit/romper with the right length for your waist. I’m short waisted so sometimes I find jumpsuits to be too long in the torso while longer waisted ladies often have the opposite problem – the dreaded camel toe.
In addition, make sure you get one that is easy to get on and off because when you have to use the restroom you have to fully strip down. It’s a con for sure, but I’m willing to make that sacrifice from time to time 🙂
They are pretty darn versatile. I could have paired this jumpsuit with booties, pumps, wedges, or even flats and a long necklace or choker would have also worked really well. It all just depends on the vibe one is going for. This outfit was for a night out with my man, so I wanted to get a little fancy/sexy for date night.
This is the newest version of my clutch. It’s a bargain! The shape is slightly different, but otherwise it’s the same. I really like how it’s embellished wth crystals on the front (which screams formal), but it also has a more subdued silver back. Just flip it to the other side depending on the occasion.
My ankle strap heels are from DSW and I’m so glad I bought them! I previously wore them with my striped OTS (off the shoulder) dress in this post. They are crazy comfortable, considering how high they are, and they go with seriously everything. I have found that ankle straps really help with the stability factor. How adorable are these frayed satin heels? They would work just as well with this look. And these are another really cool and affordable option.
White House Black Market has a great selection of higher quality (compared to fast fashion brands like F21) accessories, like this necklace. I want it! If you’re thinking the price tag is a bit high I can vouch for the quality – my WHBM heels and jewelry have really held up!
Plus if you sign up to be a part of their mailing list you’ll get coupons quite often and they often run promotions where you can get 50% off. Mine is from waaaay back, but I found this one, this one, and this one that all have a similar vibe.
I’d say the most important part of finding the right jumpsuit is trying on a bunch of different styles and then going with the one that makes you feel hot. Fashion used to have very defined “rules,” but these days anything goes! If you like it and it makes you feel confident – then wear it. Confidence is what takes an outfit to the next level!
What has your experience been with jumpsuits and rompers?
