Jumpsuits: Spring into Style For 2013 - REVIEW

The jumpsuit trend first came about in the 70s and to this day it’s still going strong. This year, designers have revealed both shorter and longer styles complete with backless, long-sleeved and strapless detailing.

Finally it seems that the sun is here to stay and even if it isn’t, hot summer attire in bold, neon brights and cutesy paisley designs are guaranteed to brighten up even the dullest of days.

It’s a great alternative for those that are tired of dresses yet still wish to dress fashionably. Jumpsuits are a versatile wardrobe staple, which can both be dressed up and down. Wear with wedged trainers and a leather biker jacket for an off-duty style and heels and a pashmina for an evening out.

However, such a trend isn’t the easiest to pull off and it all comes down to your body shape. For those who are petite in size, a shorter jumpsuit complete with a belted waist will accentuate your assets. Slimmer shapes suit halter-neck styles with lower backs, while an embellished neckline will draw the attention away from the lower half of the body.

Floral Styles

When investing in a floral jumpsuit, such as this South piece from Very.co.uk, keep accessories to a minimum. Delicate paisley patterns are suited to both petite and slim figures, whilst larger prints are better suited to those with curves. Floral styles team well with pastel blazers and by layering the outfit under a jacket you can easily create an ensemble which is more subtle.

V-Neckline, Strapless & Halter Styles

Those that wish to accent the bust should choose a strapless or V-neck style. Strapless, button-down jumpsuits in faded denim are a great option for the summer months. Simply combine with cute sandals and off-duty jewellery for a daytime style and heels and a smart blazer for an evening event. Flattering fabrics that drape over the torso are extremely flattering to curvaceous girls, especially when matched with bold jewellery and a statement belt. A black, full-length halter-neck style is suited to those that have tanned and toned shoulders. A bold, black number also creates the illusion of a leaner, lengthier torso.
