3 Ways to Wear – the black jumpsuit

I’m taking my cues today from the folk over at Katies. They’ve styled one of their new-season maxidresses three ways, and I thought I’d try the same with another one-piece wonder, my new black Katies jumpsuit.

I wore it on the weekend for a girl’s night out with Peta of Trainee Mama and a few other lovely ladies (see here), and was trying to picture it styled in other ways.

Can we also please take a moment to note that this jumpsuit is only $39.95? Seriously? Amazing. (Remind me why I haven’t yet got it in the other three colourways?)

This jumpsuit is such a comfortable style, with a soft elastic waist, scoop neck and deep pockets (oh, I do love pockets), that I thought it would work really well during the day, dressed down with both neutral and bright accessories, and a chambray vest.

The third way I styled the jumpsuit was for an occasion where I‘d usually wear a dress – a cocktail party. Pairing the simple lines of this piece with some bling and heels was incredibly easy, and I’d probably be the most comfortable woman in the room in this outfit! Because jumpsuits are basically onesies, they often have unbroken lines from the upper half to the lower half which gives the illusion of height. You can maximize this effect by wearing killer heels, but I would only do this for special occasions.

I can assure you, next time we travel, this jumpsuit will definitely be coming with me, it’s going to be such a great wardrobe all-rounder!
Any more ideas on how I can style this?

  1. Wow you've totally persuaded me on the benefits of the jumpsuit! It looks amazing in all 3 outfits and it sounds so comfy (I'm a bit comfy obsessed these days!). The orange cardi and earrings work so well with it and I do love your hair in the evening outfit – gorgeous.

  2. Hehe, that's my go-to 3-second evening hairstyle, thanks Wendy!

    I'm still discovering more ways to wear the jumpsuit – you should definitely pick one up!

  3. Confession: about 12 minutes before I cracked and wore the jumpsuit with Converse sneakers. No photo of that hot mess though!

    You are just too lovely, it's like having my own personal cheerleader xox

  4. Hi Katy I'm so glad you could join us for the #WhatWivesWearLinkUp. Welcome to the community! I like your jumpsuit. I have been wanting to buy a jumpsuit. I saw some cute printed ones at Target. I like that yours is a solid color. I like all three of these looks. I look forward to seeing more of your looks. Have a great week! ~Sherri

  5. I really love these ideas, I have a few jumpsuits and the chambray vest (or even a button down chambray shirt) and cardi will be great to transition them to the fall! Thanks so much for linking up with What Wives Wear!
