10 Ways to style a jumpsuit when you’re short


Jumpsuits have been the petite enemy for years. They can’t be fixed with a simple “cut from the bottom” like other pieces; between being too long in the body and leaving many inches of spare material at the bottom, jumpsuits have been drowning us petite women for years. Until, of course, the glorious invention of petite-sized jumpsuits that have literally saved short women around the globe!

We are big fans of investing in key, versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down with ease, and the jumpsuit is the perfect example. Wear with sandals or wedges on holiday, dress it up with some sky scraping stilettos, and even wrap it up when the temperature starts to drop. Come rain or shine, we’ve got some wonderful suggestions for you that are sure to make getting ready a breeze whatever the occasion.

Here are 10 suggestions how to style your jumpsuits, whatever the occasion…

Working Week

Yes a jumpsuit in the office is perfectly acceptable! Wear with a smart pair of pumps and a patterned top underneath or a leather belt, and you’ll have a failsafe office-ready outfit to last you season after season. Don’t forget the roomy bag for your laptop and all other essentials, including your trainers for the comfier commute to and from work or, heaven forbid, the post-work trip to the gym.

School Run

The humble jumpsuit excels as a dressed down, relaxed piece too. When zipping through our chores, this no-effort outfit handles the most demanding of days. Team your school-run-ready jumpsuit with flat pumps or espadrilles for maximum comfort. And no need to put it away with your summer clothes, as this can be worn in the autumn/winter months too. Add a cosy knit and a chunky scarf and you have a fool-proof AW outfit too. See, we told you it was versatile!

Business Meeting

A jumpsuit can really make a powerful statement and screams confidence, so it makes perfect sense to wear it on important occasions when you need to feel your best. Sharpen the black or navy jumpsuit up with a chic blazer to give it a “business” edge, cinch in and add definition to the waist with a contrasting printed belt, and add some sky scraping heels for maximum height and impact. Don’t forget the jewellery for added polish.

Theatre Night

When you’re not in the mood for a dress, and tailored trousers don’t excite you, jumpsuits are the perfect solution. So easy to dress up, it’s perfectly acceptable to wear for a night at the theatre as well as for cocktails with the girls. We would jazz up this jumpsuit with some leg elongating strappy sandals and add a cute clutch bag for dressier occasions. Team with a structured blazer and red lippy for that special “out, out” glam.

Weekend Break

Jump into holiday mode and reduce your packing in a take-anywhere summer jumpsuit.  Off to the beach? Accessorise with a wide brimmed beach hat, a roomy beach bag and simple flip flops. Going on a sightseeing holiday? No need to worry about adding heels to avoid the holiday jumpsuit touching the floor, so be comfortable and team with some walking shoes, a tote bag, and a cute pair of sunglasses. Watching the sunset at a beach-side bar? Add colourful wedges and a cross-body bag for comfort, elegance and summer style.
