Are Womens Jumpsuits A Fashion Faux Pas

Jumpsuits for women that were fashionable in the 70’s are making a big back. So many new styles are available that jumpsuits can be worn as casual wear or for formal occasions, in place of the traditional, little black cocktail dress. Places online like GUESS and Metrostyle are great sites to view the latest styles and see if a jumpsuit is right for you.

Full Figured and Petite Women

Choose a jumpsuit that you like and try it on to see if it’s comfortable and the colors and fabric are right for you. Make sure to choose shoes that complement the outfit. Slip-on shoes are fine for a romper, but definitely not for a jumpsuit, especially if it’s for evening wear. A petite woman can wear a jumpsuit but should choose one that isn’t too “busy” or has large graphics, which are overwhelming on a smaller woman. If a petite woman is larger on top or bottom, a two-tone jumpsuit will help to camouflage figure flaws.

Jumpsuits for Women over 40

Women over 40 wonder if the jumpsuits they wore in the 70’s are still something they can wear now that they’re older. For women over 40, something more understated with slim lines will make the over 40 woman look and feel great. For evening wear, a classic black jumpsuit accented with great jewelry will make any woman look and feel special. A jumpsuit that’s strapless or has tiny straps goes well with short crop tops.
