How to wear a jumpsuit plus the best jumpsuits for fall!

A jump suit is still incredibly popular for fall and today I like to give you some tips on how to wear a jump suit as well as some options on where to buy them.

How to wear a jumpsuit

The beauty of a jumpsuit is that it is super easy to wear, depending of course that you found the right fit. Just put it on, pair with some fabulous shoes and accessories and you are done!

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.

Wearing a jumpsuit on its own or with a jacket, cardigan or jumper

Even though a jumpsuit truly comes to its own when you wear it as is, it can also be a very versatile item. They are easy to combine with a jacket or cardigan. I especially liked wearing mine with a blue leather jacket but I have also worn it with a short white asymmetrical cardigan.


Other layering options include a long vest (on some types), a jacket, a short jumper, a jean jacket or a longer tunic.

My sleeveless harem jumpsuit

For my jumpsuit from Y-3 (here is a fall jumpsuit from the brand) I went for a very comfortable fit with a harem crotch in a jersey fabric. It truly is the most comfortable garment to wear and it was a favorite item on my trip. This jumpsuit looks good on its own or with a short jacket, like the short leather jacket pictured above.

I loved to combine it with my In Good Company necklace which I have in 2 color combinations and it looks good with both my edgier Lisa Tucci shoes, super comfortable Fly London wedges (see above) or my flat CK Calvin Klein flat shoes.


Sleeveless jumpsuits

Since I live in a warm climate I like a jumpsuit without sleeves. I also find these easy to combine with cardigans and jackets.

Silk & flowy jumpsuits

I love the elegance and sophistication of a flowy jumpsuit. Look out for jumpsuits in a silk fabric. They come in various silhouettes this season.

Long sleeve jumpsuits

These are super handy if you don’t like to bare your arms and don’t always want to wear your jumpsuit with a jacket, jumper or cardigan if you are living in a cooler climate.

Printed jumpsuits


Suzanne Carillo wears a very bold summer print here, but a printed jumpsuit can also be great for fall like one of the options below. Combine with a fabulous leather or jean jacket!

Wide leg jumpsuits

Super glamorous and fitting well within the 70s trend that is still going strong this is a very glamorous option. Combine with pointy high heels, a flowing long cardigan or a short jacket.

For a full collection of the jumpsuits I picked, visit the jumpsuits shop page!

Will you be wearing a jumpsuit this season? Which of the above is your favorite?

So nice I love this – never thought I could wear a jumpsuit but am going to try some on now 😉

I have posted about hot Street Style Trends from Milan today – in case you are interested 😉

Just bought one from Nordstrom. I’ve been putting off buying one until I saw your article this morning. It convinced me to go for it.

I like the way you show how to wear the jumpsuit from day to night, and I think it makes a great option instead of pants (which I always wear).
Thanks for your post…

4 Suzanne

You know me, I love a good jumpsuit and own 5 of my own, 2 of which are a plain solid colour like your own.

Thanks for the shout out lady! : )


5 Patti

I am loving them, in all varieties right now. And a year ago I would have said no way! You and Suzanne both look chic and fab. xo

6 Judy

I am a “woman of a certain age”. I used to adore jumpsuits when they were last fashionable (’70s). They look so sleek! However, now I can’t get past the thought of it puddled on on the public restroom floor when I have to use the restroom (more often than I did back then!). I love a black one I saw at White House Black Market, but can’t get past the difficulty of removal for restrooms. Anyone else have this concern?

7 Sylvia

I have no issue with mine and actually find it very easy. I just pull it down rested on my lap. I can assure you no part of the suit ever touches the floor.

8 Judy

I’ll give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration!!

9 Greetje

That jumpsuit was such a good buy. I neer had thought that. I still regret not having stayed with you in that shop to look further. I might also have found something as awesome. Your new black shoes (top picture) look very good with it as well. And as you said they are also comfortable. You did very well on your trip. I still haven’t found a jumpsuit, but I have my eye on one.

10 Ashley

I love the look of jumpsuits. This one looks great on you. My bladder is too small for me to wear one though… 🙂

11 Jill

I’m trying to pair down my wardrobe, however, I’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing a jumpsuit. I like the way it goes from day to night and could serve more than one purpose in my suitcase! Your ideas rock! Thanks. And as always you look great and I love that you are letting your hair grow!

I love the black shoes first ones. But I think I am too big for a jump suit but it looks good on you ladies.

13 Anja

You are both looking great in your jumpsuits. I really love them on you.

I once had a very cool jumpsuit. It was made out of the thinnest, softest silk in a pale blue color. I loved it, but it didn’t fit me any longer at one point. So I gave it away.

If ever I run into the perfect jumpsuit, I will definitely purchase it.

14 Elaine

Love your jumpsuit and the styling ideas. I’m inspired to pull out my black one and style it for the fall.

15 Debbie

I love jumpsuits but I’m a size 12, 5’4 with a B cup. Are there certain styles that work or is this just not flattering on anyone with my build?

16 Sylvia

I think jumpsuits can work for many body type as there are so many variations of jumpsuits. You may like to choose one that enhances your bust like a halterneck version (see also this article and enlongates with vertical lines and a streamline bottom part. You may also be inspired by how Nikki wears her jumpsuits

Just published a jumpsuit post today – love the idea of being able to wear the same suit and dress it down with converse during the day and then dress up with super high pumps in the evening…

like Judy I wore jumpsuits in the 70s. I bought a fabulous Adrianna Papell one recently and while I adored wearing it, going to the loo was a nightmare. it had its second outing recently and I just drank less so needed the loo less often!!!
