The jumpsuit made a comeback (from the 1970s) in 2009, and it has been growing more and more popular since then. After trickling its way down from celebrities to A-listers to socialites to bloggers, even the girl-next-door has hopped on the jumpsuit bandwagon. Whether you’re tall, curvy or petite, the jumpsuit can work for you - and it is here to stay!

Today we give you some no-fail guidelines on how to wear the jumpsuit and make it work for you. Read on!

1. Material Must

While considering buying a jumpsuit, the first rule is to look at the material. Fabrics like polyester, polyester blends, silk-jersey are comfortable and have a flow/fall that tends to be highly forgiving of imperfections. Avoid materials like linen - they tend to crush easily, and also show up sweat stains.

2. Size It Up

Make sure your jumpsuit is the right size. If it’s too small, it tends to ride up in all the wrong places, and if it’s a larger size, it will look extremely unflattering. Also, the jumpsuit should be snug around your assets, but fall like a drape everywhere else. Try the jumpsuit in a trial room, move around in it and check if it pulls anywhere, if the crotch is either too low or too tight.

3. Love Your Body

As with everything fashion, choose a jumpsuit that works for your body type.

If you are apple-shaped, opt for shorter length or pants with cuffs. Alternatively, try colour-blocking jumpsuits, with the top in a dark colour and the bottom in a different, lighter colour. POPxo Recommends: Ezabella Jumpsuit (Rs 1,360)

If you are pear-shaped, opt for styles which highlight your torso, like interesting detailing, or if you dare, plunging necklines. Do not go for short pant lengths. POPxo Recommends: Long Colored Jumpsuit (Rs 4,990)

If you are hour-glass shaped, choose styles the cinch at the waist, emphasizing your small waist and giving you an opportunity to flaunt your curves. POPxo Recommends: FabAlley Printed Jumpsuit  (Rs 1,850)

If you are petite, a single-toned jumpsuit creates the illusion of height. Long, loose pants will drown your petite frame, so avoid those. POPxo Recommends: Forget-Me-Not Jumpsuit (Rs 1,599)

4. Amp It Up with Accessories

To take things up a notch, break up the jumpsuit with a belt or a chain link. If you are petite, wear the belt a little lower than your waist, to give the illusion of height. If you are going the conventional route of a relaxed black jumpsuit, jazz it up with a vest, pair of sky high heels, a smart blazer or broach.

POPxo Recommends: Black Geometric Print Racer Front Jumpsuit (Rs 2,645), Black Glitter Box Clutch (Rs 1,850), Posh Peep-Toe Platforms (Rs 1,899), Metallic Belt (Rs 820)

5. Find Friendly Prints

As a first-timer, opt for safe prints like paisley, polka dots or other small prints. If you are apple-shaped, avoid big prints or horizontal prints on the torso.  If you’re feeling especially bold, try animal prints. Done right, an animal-printed jumpsuit gives you the right amount of chutzpah needed to conquer the world!

POPxo Recommends: Wills Signature by Ritu Kumar Women Multicoloured Bohemian Wide Legged Printed Jumpsuit (Rs 5,279)

6. Keep the Occasion in Mind

Jumpsuits, like dresses, have so many variations that you have plenty of options to choose from for any kind of occasion that comes your way. So for a formal event, you can opt for a fully lined, short sleeved jumpsuit that has straight-cut pants; and for a casual day out, you could go for something breezy with wide legs and a printed half. For a glitzy club outing, try out a jumpsuit that has floor-length pants as they look very graceful.

POPxo Recommends: Short Sleeved Crepe Jumpsuit  (Rs 1,669); Print Sleeveless Jumpsuit (Rs 2999); Dressology Wine Jampsuits (Rs 11,500)

7. It’s All ABout Having Fun

Be comfortable and have fun! Jumpsuits are the ultimate comfort wear. If you’re not comfortable, but pulling and tugging on it, then there’s no point in jumping into a jumpsuit.
