How To Wear Occasion Jumpsuits

Whether you want to make a stylish impact or are simply looking for something a little different, think outside of the sartorial box with this season’s must-have jumpsuits for event season.

Luxe Lace

Marianne Lace Jumpsuit, £139 | Whitney Box Clutch, £35 | Whitney Strappy Sandal, £69

Guipure lace has taken the focus for several seasons now, lending a distinctly modern feel to classic occasion pieces.  Make the trend feel relevant for SS17 with a wide-leg jumpsuit, featuring a textured bodice lined with a contrasting fabric that catches the eye. Keep the look polished with glamorous gold accessories – we think the Whitney clutch bag and sandals make the perfect match.

New Back

Jemima Embellished Jumpsuit, £79 | Jove Metallic Clutch, £35 | Fern Velvet Court, £69

If the thought of straying from your trusty LBD seems a little daunting, then look no further than its modern-day counterpart: the black jumpsuit. Opt for a wide-leg silhouette that is perfectly in line with this season’s style agenda, revealing a glimpse of skin with semi-sheer sleeves.  Draw attention to embellished trims with a metallic clutch bag, offsetting the look with a pair of black velvet court shoes.

Modern Ruffles

Katie Ruffle Jumpsuit, £109 | Camille Printed Clutch, £29 | Avril Two Part Court, £59

There’s a spot in every SS17 wardrobe for ruffles, and event season presents the perfect opportunity to showcase the trend. Choose a cobalt-blue jumpsuit with romantic ruffles across the neckline and back, adding further definition with a nipped-in waist. Give the look a summery spin with a tropical floral-printed clutch bag and a pair of pointed heels in a tonal hue.

Delicate Details

Cheryl Lace Jumpsuit, £69 | Felicity Frill Clutch, £35 | Hilary Platform Sandal, £45

Want to prove that less is more? Make a case for pared-back chic with a simple yet stylish v-neck jumpsuit, featuring delicate eyelash lace trims on the shoulders and back. Complete the look with a tonal clutch bag and platform sandals for further leg-lengthening appeal.
