5 Jumpsuits 2 Ways: How to Style a Jumpsuit

In honor of today’s super exciting jumpsuit styles video, I am wearing my favorite 70’s inspired jumpsuit. I am feeling really inspired by how a jumpsuit can be a whole outfit or just one element in your own unique look. Get ready to flex that style muscle, because today we are getting creative!

How to style a jumpsuit


Jumpsuit styles

Mix those textures 

Start with a loose, hippie style jumpsuit. It should be in a neutral color and be made from a really light material. Throw a light-colored sweater on top and finish with a matching pair of sneakers. I like to tie the sweater up to give me more shape and pull my hair back into a messy ponytail.

You can also skip out on the sweater and add a vintage-inspired blouse instead. Add a belt around your waist and grab your best pair of brown leather shoes. Both of these looks are unique in their own way and show us the ultimate jumpsuit truth - layering is your best friend! 

Easy jumpsuit style

A queen in jean 

The next jumpsuit is a gorgeous dark jean look with a tie in the back and buttons running down the front. I paired it with a mustard yellow cardigan and those same trust brown leather shoes. 

Basic jumpsuit style

Next, I switched the cardigan out for a silk cheetah print blouse and paired it with a sexy pair of brown boots. If this look doesn’t show you how easy it is to elevate plain jumpsuits, then I don’t know what will. 

Women’s jumpsuit style

Work it! 

Jumpsuit number three may look like a worker’s uniform at first glance, but it is about to become so much more. Put a colorful top under the jumpsuit and unbutton the top. Pair with matching sneakers and add a kerchief around your waist for definition.  

Add some color

Or, for something a little more daring, add a long-sleeved floral blouse under the jumpsuit. Grab a light-colored pair of low heels and finish off with a cute crossbody bag. I chose a red one for a pop of color. This outfit might be my favorite! I love the way the colors go together and the feminine blouse compliments the masculine jumpsuit. 

Red two-piece

Rocking the red 

Our next look starts with a bright red two-piece jumpsuit. Because the top half kind of hangs down, we are going to tie that middle up for some nice shape and definition. Slip-on a pair of sexy black boots and grab yourself a matching cross-body bag. Finally, for that finishing touch, add a handkerchief around your neck!

Add a dress

Alternatively, embrace your feminine side by adding a red dress over your red jumpsuit. Tuck the dress into the bottom half and wrap a belt around your waist. The contrast of the reds will give you a really unique look. Add a pair of brown leather shoes and you’re done! 

Plaid two-piece

Plaid pairings 

Going back in with another two-piece, this plaid look doesn’t do much on its own. But, after adding a knit sweater and some brown loafers, the outfit is transformed! I chose a sweater with some back cutouts so that the matching plaid top could peek through. Next, I added a cute hat to finish. 

Add a turtleneck

Although, if you’re looking for something more appropriate for summer weather, this second look may be more up your alley. Add a short-sleeved turtle neck under your top and tuck the whole thing in. Finish with a pair of leather boots and a rocking plaid blazer. I love this look because it really shows off the amazing world of prints and patterns. There is so much fun to be had with a jumpsuit that’s patterned! 


I hope these outfits helped you guys gain some inspiration for your own outfits. Remember, when it comes to jumpsuits, layering is your best friend. When you style a jumpsuit don’t be afraid to put something under it, something over it, or just a fun bag or belt looped around.
