Wearing a jumpsuit to a fashionable event? Easy. Figuring out how to make it appropriate for corporate America? Maybe not so easy…until today.
HOW TO WEAR A JUMPSUIT TO WORK
Structure It Up
With the loose and comfortable silhouette of a jumpsuit, there needs to be a bit of structure to keep it from looking sloppy. I wore a boxy white jacket from Banana Republic that hit right where the top meets the pants.
Keep It Conservative
While a jumpsuit would typically look adorable with a messy bun or loose waves (like I styled it for an event last week), work calls for a more put-together look. I put my hair up in a ballerina sock-bun (yes, I literally used a sock to do my hair - tutorial to come in a few weeks) and wore simple black pumps.
Add a Statement
Since the neckline is a bit low, I covered it a bit with a pretty statement necklace. It adds a ton of interest to the very office-appropriate neutrals in the rest of the outfit.
Keep the bold patterns on the jumpsuit to a minimum. Since the style is already pretty bold, I stuck with a traditional solid to draw less attention to the fact that I could have literally slept in this thing (it’s that comfortable.)
The Long and Short of It
This really goes without saying, but save the playsuits for the weekend. These are never appropriate at work (but oh-so-perfect for a trip to Union Market.)
Even though there are a few guidelines to wearing a jumpsuit to work, it’s totally worth it. I felt like I was wearing pajamas all day and got so many sweet compliments. Looks like another win for women everywhere.
