But hey, before that here’s all you need to know about what to wear with a jumpsuit — accessories, shoes et al. Well also check out how style a floral print jumpsuit right to best suit your body type and personal style. So, here we go —
In its most basic form, a jumpsuit is a one piece garment which is a pair of trousers extended up to your shoulders as a shirt or blouse. Apart from their apparent popularity in fashion, jumpsuits are also used as uniforms and protective garment too. But we are all about the on-trend women’s jumpsuits styles that have stolen many a heart. Of course, they started out as a pair of pants and sleeved shirt mashed together into a single garment. However, with its adoption into mainstream fashion and designer ramp shows, sleeves and collars either disappeared or transformed into fresh new forms. Then came off shoulder and strapless varieties, followed by wide-legged bottoms, belted styles and on and on and on. There is no dearth of styles in women’s jumpsuits today.
Here we are going to focus on just one variation — jumpsuit styles in printed fabrics and how to wear them. Floral print jumpsuits are true ambassadors of bold femininity. It’s got powerful silhouette of a new age go getter, while the flower power mellows it up for a hip-happy look. Here, check out this printed jumpsuit and you’ll see what we have in mind.
White Floral Jumpsuit
This white floral jumpsuit is a perfect mash up of classy elegance and guilt free comfort. While the easy to carry off garment keeps you going all day through with ease, the garden print element brings out the ‘ready to take on the world now’ vibe in all its fierceness. This sleeveless printed jumpsuit is a semi casual everyday staple you can invest in without a second thought. Just imagine putting this on for a long day at work — perfect for those morning meetings and straight into the evening cocktail party. Pull your hair back up into a pony or braided updo, strap on some heels (a pair of ballet flats or pumps will do too), and toss in some fine jewellery. Complete the accessorising with a fabulous leather bag or clutch. Remember to tone down the makeup to suit long days out in the sun. Flower power will take care of the rest.

The world’s most beautiful woman chose a wide legged floral jumpsuit in peach with accents of red and blue, belted it and matched it up with a robe in the same fabric. There is nothing called too much print here; and that’s how you break fashion rules in style. What saves Ash’s floral look from the ‘print on print’ faux pas is her choice of what accessories to wear with the jumpsuit. Notice how she kept her accessorizing minimal and matching — brown leather belt, brown minaudiere and brown peep toe wedges, literally peeping out from beneath her graceful palazzo jumpsuit. Oh! Look, even her french brown hair matches! That pop of red on her lips couldn’t go wrong either. This look is a must have if minimalistic elegance in modest wear is your cup of tea.

There you go! Yes, it’s not all black is it? The interesting floral print placement makes it a classy style to try. Just strap on some comfy sandals or step into a ballet flat, crown yourself with a wide-brimmed hat, sun shades on, and go have the time of your life. If it gets a bit chilly in the evening, just put on a summer coat or stole over your shoulders and that’s it! Belt it if you must; a fine leather belt will only add to the glamour.
Okay now, we must think about what shoes to wear with jumpsuits. This is not entirely dependent on the jumpsuit itself — but keep in mind your height, body structure and the occasion you are wearing your printed jumpsuit to. By default, solid colours create great contrast for floral jumpsuits. So a leather sandal or ballet shoes in single tan or brown colour would be more than enough. Now if it is a short jumpsuit with floral prints, you could consider a strappy gladiator heels or stiletto for leaner legs. This is strictly if you are not looking forward to a lot of walking. Otherwise, if it’s a walk on the beach, stick to flats — but not flipflops, thank you! If it is party scene, instead of stilettos why not wear leather oxfords or boots with block heels?

Having said all that about solid tones in your choice of footwear, check out this urban-chic floral jumpsuit style. The global floral print jumpsuit is matched by a floral pump and it does not look out of place. Yet another great feat in print on print styling, I must say. Here, what creates the distraction from too-much print is two fold — one, the length of the jumpsuit itself and secondly, the contrasting blue blazer layering. You can get this look with a denim shirt too — just roll up the sleeves for a casual feel. Good one for an everyday college look, right?

Remember how we talked about the variety of styles in floral jumpsuits? One is of course, the print itself. It could be global print with tiny floral elements or a larger garden print covering a bigger area. Now the tiny flower prints are ideal for curvy bodies, while larger prints suit leaner girls. Now, if it is a single statement print, it might be good to slim down your curves too — it all comes down to the print placement. On to the cut of the jumpsuit — the wide legged palazzo jumpsuits are best suited for long legged lasses; while short cuties can have fun with the tapering slim fits and short styles in jumpsuits. Belts are the best accessories to go with jumpsuits. It helps you break your body into two halves and thus adds an illusion of height. Also, belting a jumpsuit can easily give it a two piece garment feel. Just in case you need to rush into an impromptu work meeting while having a day out in your floral jumpsuit, just belt it and throw on a blazer and you are boardroom ready in a minute.
Let’s have a final look at one stunning floral jumpsuit style that could suit all.
