If you are looking for a cool alternative to the classic LBD or the seasons sequins and sparkle, then look no further than the jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are an effortless route to chic and create a look of understated glamour in less time than it takes to say “Another prosecco please!”.
While the jumpsuit started out as a trend, it is now here to stay. I adore the ease and versatility of this one step outfit and have styled two of my favourites from the high street to show you how to nail this look over the festive season and in to 2017!
This asymmetric, one-shoulder wide leg jumpsuit from Zara is a fashion forward piece that will take you right through to SS17. The festive red is perfect for party season while the one shoulder detail keeps the look fashionably fresh. Shoulder details in the form of cut-outs and one shoulder are going to be a major trend for SS17 so get ahead of the pack with this one-piece! The wide leg on this piece also creates the illusion of a longer silhouette.
To let the jumpsuit do the talking, I’ve kept the rest of the look simple. A sleek high pony keeps the look edgy while dewy makeup and a strong lip gives this a youthful look. Keeping accessories to a minimum, I added simple good hoop earrings and some bangles.
Velvet and Christmas time go together like mulled wine and mince pies. Instantly upgrade your festive party look with this super-strokeable jewel toned, velvet jumpsuit from Mango. With a wrap font, short sleeve and wide leg, this is an effortlessly cool and super flattering look in a colour that will look good on pretty much all skin tones.
For me, this jumpsuit is reminiscent of Bianca Jagger and Farah Fawcett in the 70’s. In keeping with that theme, I styled this look with big bouncy waves and glamorous winged eyeliner. To really enhance the retro feel of the look, I added some 70’s style jewellery.
So there you have it, two of my favourite jumpsuits styled for a night on the tiles. In a sea of lurex and beading this festive season, be sure to stand out from the crowd in a stylish one piece!!
