How To’s: Styling the Jumpsuit

A jumpsuit or romper is a garment that incorporates both the top and bottom in one piece. It was originally referred to as the utilitarian one-piece garments.

 The first jumpsuit was designed in 1919 by Florentine Thayat, as a futuristic and subversive outfit and many years later, the jumpsuit–whether in full-length form or in an abbreviated romper style–still seems to be the calling card of a gutsy lady.

With so many types and designs available today, almost any woman find a jumpsuit that will make her look smart and sophisticated. It’s all about finding the right fit and style for you.

Jumpsuit For Work


The jumpsuit is a versatile piece of clothing every woman should have and wear during any season. If anything, a basic jumpsuit is a great base that can be layered with a jacket or blazer to create a perfect work look. There’s nothing like a jumpsuit to whittle down your morning what-to-wear routine. It gives the illusion of a top and trousers. It’s completely unfussy, u never have to worry about my blouse staying tucked in, and feels perfectly polished for the office. When choosing your own 9-to-5 jumpsuit, be conscious of the fit–think tailored, and not too tight. You’ll want to leave the body-hugging numbers for your off-duty hours.
