Jumpsuits arrived in the market some 90 years back when the Italian painter Ernesto Michahelles invented the look in the year 1919. Back then, jumpsuits were better known as “Tuta.” The origin of the name came from the shape of the dress which is of T shape. At that time, the style was only worn by skydivers and parachutists which eventually led to the name of the dress as it is known today, Jumpsuits. In the 20’s, the famous designer of that era, Coco Chanel, reinvented jumpsuits by creating the two-piece beach pajama.

Getting the Perfect Fit
First things first! No matter how good your jumpsuits look or how costly it is, if the jumpsuit doesn’t fit you properly, you are going to look disastrous in it. So, finding a jumpsuit that fits you well is essential for looking perfect. While choosing a jumpsuit, you need to make sure that it isn’t too tight which would make you feel uncomfortable. And if you choose jumpsuits that are too baggy your curves will seem unflattering. Find jumpsuits that cling to the thinnest part of your waist for a perfect look.

Get a Bit Formal
Wondering how to style a jumpsuit for a formal look? Pair it with a blazer! Even though a properly fitting jumpsuit dress is enough to give you that elegant look pairing it with a blazer enhances the elegant-factor. Moreover, if you are wearing a jumpsuit for the first time, pairing it with a blazer may make you feel more comfortable. While selecting a blazer, make sure that its style matches your jumpsuit and the occasion for which you are wearing it. Choose a color for the unstructured jacket that contrasts well with the jumpsuit. For solid color jumpsuits, go for a contrasting color. Or for a floral jumpsuit, choose a light colored tuxedo. A bonus will be if the tuxedo is also printed with a light floral design. This will help you enhance the look of your jumpsuit while also making you look chic and beautiful in it.

Choose Heels for Wide Legs
Wearing a wide leg jumpsuit? Then the best choice of footwear would be wide heels. If you wear a wide-legged jumpsuit with a sandal or flat footwear, your bottom half will look completely floppy. It will also ruin the fitting of the jumpsuit and make you look shorter. That is the last thing that you desire when you are putting in so much time and effort to look your best.
