Jumpsuits for women: Do you love them or hate them? They can be the perfect outfit when you don’t know what to wear as you don’t need to worry about separates. In this article, you’ll find the best summer jumpsuits for women as well as inspiration on how to wear them.
Today I’d like to share some tips and ideas for wearing jumpsuits with you and show you some of the best jumpsuits for women available in stores now.
Why jumpsuits for women are so versatile
What’s not to love about a jumpsuit?
It’s an outfit all-in-one. There’s no worrying about whether the top goes with the bottom. You just throw it on, and off you go!
Plus, you can wear jumpsuits for any occasion. Throw on some sneakers with your jumpsuit for casual days, pop a blazer over the top for more formal occasions and wear with heels for a night out.
There are also some beautiful floral jumpsuits in stores that I have my eye on for summer weddings and barbecues.
Top 5 tips for choosing jumpsuits for women
If you’re a jumpsuit newbie, then here are five tips to help you dip your toes into the waters.
1. Try on a few until you find the perfect fit
It is harder to find perfectly fitting jumpsuits for women than many other items of clothing, as you need one where the waistline is on, well, your waistline, and the crotch isn’t sitting too low, unless you choose a harem style, or too high as you will be uncomfortable.
Look for summer jumpsuits for women with adjustable straps as these help you to alter the fit to your body.
The most crucial part of picking the right jumpsuit is to find the right fit and there are quite a few options to choose from.
Not every style will fit your personality or body type, so start trying a few of the silhouettes to find out what suits you best.
2. Define your waist
Many jumpsuits for women have a cinched-in waist or a belt so you don’t lose your femininity even though you’re wearing an all-in-one.
3. Pair with a blazer.
This can add lovely long lines, breaking up the look of your jumpsuit with an additional layer. A blazer can be ideal if you have a sleeveless jumpsuit but you want to cover up your arms.
4. Wear a solid color.
If you’re new to wearing jumpsuits than you will probably feel more comfortable in a solid color like navy or white than you would wearing a lot of pattern.

5. Wear a wide leg jumpsuit with heels to make your legs look longer.
Heels can also elevate your jumpsuit into a look you can wear for formal events.

Now that you’re thinking about how you might wear them, let’s take a look at some of the most stylish jumpsuits you could choose for summer.
wide leg jumpsuit
Wide-legged jumpsuits can be very flattering, as you can cinch them at the waist for a classic hourglass feel, even if you don’t have an hourglass figure.
You can also give yourself the illusion of having longer legs by wearing heels underneath.
Chic and relaxed, you could wear a wide-legged jumpsuit with heels for summer daytime events, or with flats for a sightseeing vacation.
A crop length can be the perfect option for summer to keep you cool and show off a bit of ankle. If you are worried about a crop style making your legs look shorter, you could always wear with a small heel.
Also, take a look at how to wear capris and cropped pants.

off shoulder jumpsuit
The off-the-shoulder jumpsuit from Amazon (below) would be a good vacation option as you could dress it up or down and it’s made from a comfy, stretch spandex material.
front tie jumpsuit
If you want to make sure your jumpsuit is flattering, a good option is to choose a tie-waist style like the Fraiche by J option (below).
Florals are a lovely choice for the summer season.
long sleeve jumpsuit
Just as when you are choosing a dress, you may prefer to cover-up your arms with your jumpsuit. However, it can be trickier to find jumpsuits with long sleeves. The Fraiche by J ruched jumpsuit (below) is one of the few that I’ve seen with total arm coverage.
Of course, black is a classic color that you can wear any time of year. A black jumpsuit makes a stylish alternative to a little black dress. For summer, you could team with gold sandals and accessories.
A white dress tends to be synonymous with summer and with vacations, but you can get the same, clean, crisp look from a white jumpsuit.
While white no doubt adds an instant feeling of summer to your wardrobe, it can also be tricky to wear because it doesn’t have the same slimming properties as darker hues like navy or black.
If you aren’t completely comfortable with all-over white when looking at jumpsuits for women options, you could try adding a long-line blazer as a top layer, which will elongate your silhouette by creating sleek, long lines.
This can skim over any problem areas such as your tummy and hips. You’ll also be able to cover your upper arms this way if you don’t feel comfortable showing them off.
When looking for a white jumpsuit, the key is to go for quality fabric to ensure that you aren’t inadvertently flashing your underwear! Another idea, if you’re not ready for all-over white is to choose stripes.

I always think that a red dress makes a bold statement, and the same definitely holds true for a red jumpsuit.
Or, you could opt for a one-color red jumpsuit like this one below, which could be dressed up or down.
A two tone look is perfect for the pear shape because you can emphasize your top half and play down wider hips and thighs. The halter neck of the jumpsuit (below) would also be flattering on rectangles and inverted triangles.
If you’re looking for an everyday jumpsuit, then the PRETTYGARDEN jumpsuit (below) could be the perfect choice. It comes in a good range of colors, and has good reviews on Amazon, with one person pointing out that it is a “socially acceptable onsie” that you can wear out and about as well as for lounging.
Another Amazon option for you, this time with a vest-style top. Reviewers say it is very flattering even if you have a little bit of a tummy.
Apricot long sleeve
If you are looking for a dressy jumpsuit, how about the belted option (below) which has a tie waist, wide legs and long sleeves? It comes in a good range of darker shades and neutrals and reviewers say it hides flaws well and helps to hide a bit of a belly.
tie dye jumpsuit
Tie dye is particularly on-trend for this summer. The hooded jumpsuit (below) could be a good option for vacations or travelling.
jumpsuits for women at COS
Have you considered wearing a romper suit? It’s a jumpsuit with shorts rather than pants, essentially. But, the problem can be that the shorts are too short!
I would look for a romper with mid-length or knee-length shorts. If I’m showing off my legs, I prefer a romper with sleeves so there’s not too much on show at one time. You could always wear with opaque tights and booties for fall.
If you want to take an edgier approach to the jumpsuit, you can opt for a harem style. This stretchy jumpsuit is a very comfortable fit with a harem crotch in a jersey fabric. It truly is the most comfortable garment to wear and perfect for traveling.
This jumpsuit looks good on its own or with a short jacket.
It is combined with Sylvia’s In Good Company necklace which she has in 2 color combinations and it looks good with both edgier Lisa Tucci shoes, super comfortable Fly London wedges or flat CK Calvin Klein flat shoes.
You can check out this similar harem jumpsuit from Amazon to recreate this look if this is your favorite of these jumpsuits for women.
