The jumpsuit has become a style staple in recent years. While the first jumpsuits had more practical applications for pilots, divers and other service professionals, by the 60s and 70s, they were a firm fashion favorite. After a little dip in popularity in the 90s and early 00s, there’s no denying that the jumpsuit is here to stay.

From loose casual styles to sexy catsuits for partywear, there’s a jumpsuit for everyone. Take a look at Born in Stockholm’s top tips for how to style a jumpsuit and be number one in your all-in-one.

Go loose for a stylish day look

The great thing about jumpsuits is that they can be worn in both the daytime and the evening. For daytime, a casual jumpsuit look can be effortless, while also offering comfort for whatever you’ve got going on that day. From denim jumpsuit styles to casual jersey looks, there are different ways you can make your jumpsuit work. 

Consider layering over a t-shirt or shirt for off-duty chic, or layer under your knitwear for those chillier days. Jumpsuits are ideal for wearing while traveling, so if you’re looking for your perfect plane outfit, then this could be the look for you.

Pulling off a daytime jumpsuit is all about balance, so if you’re worried about what jacket to wear with a wide leg jumpsuit, we’ve got you covered. For a wide leg style, try wearing a cropped jacket or trench to help balance your proportions and create an on-trend look. 

Slimmer-fitting styles can be paired with a blazer or a longer length jacket or coat for a style without adding bulk. Denim is perfect jumpsuit material for a casual look, ideal for wearing with your favorite sweatshirt and casual sneakers.

What about jumpsuits for festivals & parties?

Jumpsuits are the perfect party outfit - the brighter, the better. Evening jumpsuits are perfect for bringing the glamour, ensuring all eyes are on you.

  • Avoid the dreaded camel toe (or not?) by making sure you choose a style that fits you correctly, or use a pantyliner to help keep things looking smooth.

  • Wear seamless underwear to keep VPL at bay.

  • Layer your style to help you keep cool/warm depending on the weather.

  • Go all out! Add your favorite accessories to complete your look - it’s time to shine, after all.

  • Get jumpsuit outfit ideas from some of your favorite fashion icons and musicians. Taylor Swift has been rocking the bejeweled bodysuit for her Eras Tour outfit, and you’ll find plenty of dazzling styles in our store to help you recreate the look for yourself.

  • Boost your posture by wearing your jumpsuit with some heels or platforms. Heels can be a great confidence-booster, and will make you stand taller in your jumpsuit.

  • For more casual styles, opt for a looser look. Going up a size can ensure a more relaxed fit, perfect for your off-duty look.
