Work the One-Piece Wonder: Here’s How to Find Your Perfect JumpsuitFeb 20, 2014 @ 8:16 am
From runway (pictured above: Chloe) to the red carpet, jumpsuits are still going strong. Plus, they make getting dressed a cinch. But since they’re not all cut from the same cloth, here are three things to keep in mind:
1. The Vibe
Depending on cut and fabric, this closet chameleon can go black tie. Take inspiration from Kristen Wiig who chose a black Martin Grant one-piece for a red carpet premiere, and select a silk palazzo version as a daring alternative to a gown. Or, spin it for the office and button a blazer over a tailored rendition (our pick, pictured above: T by Alexander Wang, $465; alexanderwang.com). For a casual look, sub playful prints for jeans on weekends.
2. The Fit
Consider which pant shape is most flattering on you—cropped, skinny, or wide—and try a similar one when jumpsuit shopping.
3. The Outfit
For a laid-back look, pair cropped styles with chunky heels or fun flats. Flowy designs call for sexy, sky-high sandals—you don’t want hems tripping you up on the floor.
From structured one-pieces to comfortable wide-leg jumpsuits in playful prints, shop our six picks below:
