3-Way Styling

by Lisa Lyford
3-Way Styling

I recently bought a jumpsuit and have had so many compliments. Most people would never consider buying one - how on earth do you wear it! And is it really that practical?


It sure is, I can do so many things with it - consider it a base, a canvas to work from. Here we show you 3 ways of styling the jumpsuit. These styling ideas can work with dresses, tops & trousers, tops & skirts.


There's only one downside to wearing a jumpsuit - I'll leave you to figure it out!!


The Casual Look


Consider rolling up the legs - two narrow rolls. Grab yourself a wee pair of socks, say black or black glittery ones. This casual look would work equally well with an ankle boot. A denim jacket would also look great, as would a more casual shoe.

Just Jeans Knox Knit Biker Jacket AUD $79.95. 

Colette Hayman Beaded Knot Necklace AUD $9.95

Mi Piaci Ashton Black/Silver $240






For this one I've given you a number of jacket options and tops for underneath. If you wear something underneath, it can't be bulky and just make sure the necklines are complementary, that they look like they're meant to be rather than forced. This attention to detail is really important in styling. I haven't actually tried the spotted shirt under the jumpsuit so don't know if it will work so you'll need to try. Coloured merino knits would look fabulous underneath too.


I've chosen long necklaces to help break up the long block of black.
