Style on a Budget: Perfect Jumpsuits for Any Occasion

Like to look stylish and glamorous at every occasion, but not sure where to start? A jumpsuit could be the answer to all your problems. In fact, the right jumpsuit could be the hardest working piece in your wardrobe.

Jumpsuits are modern, quirky, and fun. They’re the perfect wardrobe solution for hard working London girls who want to be stylish and effortless at the same time.

Whether you’re going on a red-hot date, heading to a job interview, or even glamming up for a black-tie event, these are our top tips to make a jumpsuit work for every occasion:

#1 | The Perfect Office Jumpsuit

Not sure that jumpsuits are office-appropriate? Not so fast. You can definitely wear the right jumpsuit for networking events, job interviews, and post-work drinks.
The key to picking the perfect office jumpsuit is to look for something tailored and in office-appropriate colours: think black, navy blue, grey or pinstripes. If you’d prefer something a little more eye-catching, then royal blue or burgundy are also office appropriate, whilst injecting a little extra colour into your look.

We love this black culotte jumpsuit from SilkFred which would look great paired with a fitted cream or grey suit jacket and a simple black court shoe. You’ll look fashion-forward and formal in the office all day, but can slip off the jacket for a simple post-work drinks look.

#2 | The Cool Cocktail Party Jumpsuit

Heading for a cocktail night with friends? When you live in London, you’ll find a cocktail bar on every corner, and it’s easy to get bored of wearing the same old outfit week in and week out. Why not mix things up with a jumpsuit?

Play around with shapes that will highlight your figure, add oversized accessories, and don’t be afraid to add a bold, brightly-coloured heel too.

The right cocktail bar jumpsuit can be dressed down to wear for Sunday brunch too, just look for a jumpsuit with flattering proportions that could be paired with sneakers and a chunky knit over the top. This pink cowl neck jumpsuit from River Island is a great choice, because it is versatile enough to wear in several different ways.

#3 | The Wow Wedding Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits work just as well for weddings and other black-tie occasions as more traditional dresses. The key to making this look work is to pick a piece that looks rich and opulent. Jewel toned colours and luxurious fabrics, such as silk, lace or velvet, are great options.

This berry coloured lace detail jumpsuit from SilkFred is a great choice, thanks to its combination of textures, vibrant shade, and unusual, eye-catching neckline.

To ensure your outfit is appropriate for the occasion, pair it with heeled sandals or pumps in either nude or a contrasting jewel tone. Add an attention-grabbing clutch bag featuring metallic details, sequins, or jewels to up the ante and add extra glamour and elegance to your outfit.

#4 | Don’t Forget the Playsuit!

Finally, don’t forget to think about playsuits! The shorter, flirtier member of the jumpsuit family, playsuits are perfect for flashing some flesh on big nights out, or wearing poolside when the sun is shining.Budget jumpsuit

This versatile piece is easy to take from day to night during the summer months simply by switching from flip flops to heels; it’s the one warm weather piece every woman should have in her wardrobe.

We love this fun tropical print playsuit to inject some exotic holiday sunshine into your wardrobe wherever you choose to wear it. We recommend picking a print with a dark base like this one, so you can wear it with tights in the winter months as well.
