How to switch from dresses to elegant evening jumpsuits
Whether you’re a loyal dress lover or you have just never felt like stepping out of your comfort zone, there is no denying that jumpsuits are everywhere in 2019 and over the last few years it has become a modern day wardrobe essential rather than a lounge piece. When it comes to formal occasions or evening galas, ball gowns and long dresses immediately come to one’s mind. A structured jumpsuit is that sidelined option that could really be your best friend but you haven’t given it a go yet!
Jumpsuits come with many questions like – ‘when to wear ‘, ‘which length to wear’, ‘what’s suited for a particular occasion’, ‘how to style it’ etc. Now is a good time to read through and get answers to all those questions because we’ve got you covered! All the style do’s that will make you look at jumpsuits as equally fun to wear options as a party dress and as versatile as a sleek slip dress.
It’s interesting how jumpsuits, an essentially one piece clothing item can make a complete outfit. They look stylish with minimal effort, as opposed to dresses. Though there are a few tips that you need to keep in mind as jumpsuits can be a little intimidating if not worn correctly. You can end up looking sloppy or wider if your selection is not well thought through. A monochrome formal jumpsuit is both feminine and elegant and a halter neck is sheer sexy. Adding a boxy bag and stilettos to a black jumpsuit makes for a more classy look while gold accessories and a fancy hair bun can go with almost all party jumpsuits. Let’s move on to understanding jumpsuits in detail.
How To Pick An Evening Jumpsuit？
1. GET THE RIGHT LENGTH
A jumpsuit that goes beyond your mid-heel length can make you trip over yourself and ruin the evening. It’s a must to buy a length that will sit just right with heels as well as flats. In case you are unable to find the perfect length in the jumpsuit style that you like, you can always get it hemmed, but the important thing is – you must wear it in the right length only.

2. DEFINE YOUR WAIST
Jumpsuits don’t mean you have to lose your figure and look oblong, which is a common misconception that they take their own shape on our body. A lot of jumpsuits come with either a waist belt as the same color of the jumpsuit or a drawstring so that you can easily define your waist. Cinching your jumpsuit at the waist is a great way to give you that curvy look. With a solid jumpsuit, adding a gold belt adds extra dimension and a little extra femininity to your look.

Miniature polka dots on a solid dark color can also add some zing to the look.
