Jumpsuits = summer’s wardrobe game-changer

Cape Town - No need to channel your inner Catwoman, jumpsuits are all about balancing fit and style.

Date-night ready

Just add a bold lip and a spritz of fragrance.

Pair with: statement earrings, a clutch and peep-toe block heels.

Style tips:

Focus on your waistline to ensure your jumpsuit is flattering – it should nip in at the smallest part of your body.

To dress up your jumpsuit add an unexpected element to your outfit like a contrasting belt.

If you want to make your playsuit a bit more formal for the office then pay attention to the length of your shorts. If it feels too short then it probably is. Pair it with a blazer and court heels.

Weekend uniform

Get extra style mileage out of your jumpsuit by dressing it down by day.

Pair with: sneaks (or slides), a crossbody bag and statement sunnies.

Style tips:

Dress down your jumpsuit and add some street style cred to your look with a utility or denim jacket.

It’s all in the fit. For a formal function your jumpsuit should be more tailored. But if you’re looking for something more casual you can go for a looser style.

Choose the right style for your shape. If you have a big bust then go for a V-neck style to flaunt your (ahem) assets. If you’re pear shaped, then look for one with detail or embellishment around the neckline and shoulders.
