It’s a stylish question I’ve been asked before; can a jumpsuit be formal and specifically, can one be worn to a wedding? Partial to a all in one number, I believe jumpsuits can certainly be styled for a more formal affair, however, I’ve got a few little stylish tips and tricks in my Louis Vuitton.
1. Ensure your jumpsuit contains the basis for a high end outfit, ie, is it beautifully tailored and made to measure or is crafted from a high end fabric? What I love about this Stella piece I’m wearing is the gorgeous structure highlighting bishop sleeves, a cinched tied waist and billowing pants.
2. Consider a softer, feminine palette suitable for a ceremony, as well as the reception. Already a jumpsuit makes a strong optical statement, so subtlety is a safe choice. My recommendation? Anything floral or favouring blush or pastel tones.
3. Create elongated legs with an appropriate heel. Given a few inches of extra fabric, I have selected a pair of heels that offer a platform, alongside a generous block heel, creating the optical illusion of longer pins.
4. For accessories: think less is more! Keep the focus on the find, and accessories to the essentials. For this look, it means a striking set of earrings, a fabulous timepiece and a few dainty rings.
