With the arrival of summers in India, it’s a no-brainer that women would want to opt for comfortable and breezy looks that exude elegance at the same time. Hence the jumpsuit arrives in the picture. What people often associate with being meant for toddlers, jumpsuits are actually a very versatile piece of clothing. It can transform your look from casual to business in a matter of seconds and a few styling tricks up your sleeves.
Choosing a jumpsuit is critical, especially for Indian women because they exhibit a wide range of body types. For tall women, wide-leg or flared-leg jumpsuits are a massive yes. Similarly, for shorter women, straight-leg jumpsuits are a go as they add an effect of long legs.
The next step is to decide the occasion you're dressing for. There are tons of jumpsuits in the market, be it casual, business or party-wear. But you don’t want to show up to a formal event wearing a casual jumpsuit.
Move over your sarees and dresses and opt for a well-tailored and flattering jumpsuit for your next formal meeting. They key focus should be on the sobriety of the look, so go for colours like white, black, navy or darker hues. Fabrics like silk will add an extra oomph and luxury feel to your outfit.
Since it is a formal occasion, let the focal point be your jumpsuit. To add accessories, opt for a simple belt, stilettos and maybe a simple stud and a strand of necklace.
One might feel like casual occasions only call for a pair of jeans and your over-worn white shirt. So the next time you go out to catch up with your friends, wow them by donning a vibrant coloured jumpsuit in cotton. Denim jumpsuits are also a sure way to look casual and chic at the same time. Choose a strapless/sleeveless jumpsuit and add an extra layer by wearing a plain t-shirt underneath.
If you’re opting for flat-shoes, make sure your jumpsuit is cropped and above your ankles. For a sporty-chic look, replace your trusty slip-ons with a pair of platform sneakers.
When it comes to dressing for parties, jumpsuits just screams that you’re here for a good time.
For a day-time party, opt for prints and pops of colour in an easy-going fabric. Experiment with the neckline instead of settling for a safe option. Halters and off-shoulder emphasise that you’re attending a party.
For a soiree, make sure you look the part. Sequins and embellishments are your best friends.
Accessorising is key. Add a belt to your outfit to cinch your waist. If you’re wearing a V-neck, layer delicate strands of necklaces and chokers. Finally, add a simple clutch and put on your heels and you’re good to go.
