Last 2 weeks have been a bit busy with all the traveling and travel preps in the pipeline but amidst all the hustle bustle, I still managed to click a few pictures of the outfit that I have been wanting to share for the longest time. One of my summer favourites – The White Jumpsuit.
Beyonce wore it to the Chime for Change 2014, Kendall Jenner wore it to British Fashion Awards 2014, Irina Shayk wore it to Cannes 2015 and of course Taylor Swift wore it to the billboard 2015. It almost seems like it has started to become the new LBD of the season.
A few clients of mine were, however quite hesitant to try this outfit.They feared that an all-white ensemble could be too daunting. Hence I decided to shoot this outfit in a crowded place to show you that you can pull off the white look by standing out yet blending in. Here are a few tips on making this ensemble less overwhelming.
1. Find the Right Fit
Fit is always the key.Jumpsuits can make you look frumpy if they don’t fit well. It is possible that with a dress you could wear perhaps both small and medium size but with jumpsuits , the fit has to be precise. The key areas to focus on is your chest, hips and ankles. A well fitted jumpsuit should not be loose at these places.
The only exception to this rule is the flare jumpsuit. In that case the fit should be right primarily at the chest and waist. In fact, if you are conscious of wearing jumpsuits because you feel you have a heavier midsection, then a flare jumpsuit is exactly what you need. It will accentuate your waist and loosen up from the tummy and flare at the legs below.
2. Add a Pop of Colour
The best part about wearing white is that it can be styled in a million ways. My favorite styling secret with neutrals is always to add a pop of colour. This ensures my outfit is not too boring unless I am going for a formal look. Here, I have added a pink Kate Spade Tote Bag , pink ballerina flats and a light shade of pink lipstick.
3. Throw in a Blazer
I have always loved blazers for one sole reason- They help you cover up in outfits you are not comfortable in. The trick is, if you are conscious of a sleeveless dress, a tight outfit or an all white jumpsuit, throw in a blazer.
Since I was adding tones of pink to my entire ensemble , I wore a floral blazer to match those hues. Oh yes, floral is big this summer.
Alternatively go for a black cape blazer, black clutch and a nice pair of sunnies.
4. Add in Accessories
If you are opting for an all neutral look , try going for some accessories to up the glam factor. If you are wearing a silk jumpsuit, avoid necklaces as your outfit itself will attract attention. Go for some chunky earrings instead. If you are however wearing a less shinier material like cotton, go for a statement neckpiece or a pearl necklace.
5. Wear Tapered & Heels if you feel short
In general if you are of petite size , go for tapering jumpsuits paired with heels to get a visually taller look .With a white jumpsuit, opt for nude heels for the right effect. In general, a monochrome ensemble will help to make you look taller.
