Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadalizuy

One of the most versatile pieces that has been tremendously in demand today is the jumpsuit, which is gradually succeeding the modern cocktail dress. Whether it’d be for a “bougie” daytime brunch or a rooftop exclusive event, the jumpsuit has not been a let down to women of any age because it pairs well with various add-ons and is a convenient go-to item. We’ve laid out the most popular types of jumpsuits today and added some styling tips to make it one of your staple pieces for any season of the year!

cm1The “Sleeveless” Jumpsuit
The most common of all styles is the sleeveless jumpsuit, as it’s a practical choice for almost any occasion. As a casual piece, one may wear the jumpsuit on its own with flats or wedges, and some basic accessories. To dress the outfit up, the jumpsuit may be worn with a blazer or cropped jacket with heels and some statement accessories. During the colder seasons, many choose to layer a tee or a turtleneck sweater underneath the jumpsuit to ensure warmth.

asos1The “Off-shoulder” Jumpsuit
The off-shoulder jumpsuit is perfect for those who like to show some skin but still want to remain conserved. Like the sleeveless jumpsuit, the off-shoulder jumpsuit may be dressed up or down. However, due to the varying styles, it might not always look too pleasing to pair this type of jumpsuit with a jacket or blazer.  For accessories, a choker would coordinate well with this type of jumpsuit or some statement pieces to glam up the whole outfit.

f21The “Dressy” Jumpsuit
There have also been many jumpsuits designed for dressier occasions. Jumpsuits with long sleeves or embellished with loud patterns or embroideries are suitable for formal events and dinners. One should complement this type of jumpsuit with statement accessories, a pair of heels, and a swanky purse or clutch.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Jumpsuits For Work

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsStyle Inspiration

Spring has finally arrived, and although we have yet to reach those balmy temperatures that we dreamt about all winter long, many of us have already begun planning our spring work outfits. After three long and cold months, I am more than ready to shed the parka, unflattering (but warm) sweaters and dark tones for some flouncy dresses, midi-skirts and vibrant colours. The piece that I can’t wait break out once the temperature hits the upper teens is my work jumpsuit. Not only does it allow me to channel my inner J.Lo (a.k.a the jumpsuit queen), but also it’s really, really comfortable and a fantastic alternative to wearing dresses and pants to work everyday. With so many options available, finding the perfect one-piece for the office can be tricky, so I’m offering 5 tips and ticks on how to work a jumpsuit for work. 

structured jumpsuit

1. Look for structure 

Jumpsuits tend to have more of a relaxed fit, but to successfully rock this spring/summer staple at the office structure is key. For a sophisticated look, be sure to choose a one-piece that has a strong silhouette.

simple jumpsuit

2. Remember to K.I.S.S

I’ve talked about the K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple, Sally) rule before, so you should know that it’s my motto when it comes to office style. Where jumpsuits are concerned, it’s best to avoid bold prints and colours. Keep it simple with neutral tones and use accessories to play with colour. 

blazer and basic jumpsuit

3. Go for a layered look   

Throwing on a blazer is my go-to trick for making almost any item of clothing work appropriate. Sport a blazer with your jumpsuit to add some much-needed structure and to give it the right amount of polish.

conservative jumpsuit

4. Be a bit conservative

When wearing a one-piece at the office, it’s best to err on the conservative side—stay away from plunging necklines, cutouts and backless options. If you work in a corporate environment, a long sleeve jumpsuit is probably the safest choice.

5. Add a statement piece

Dress-up a basic office jumpsuit with statement jewellery. To add visual interest to your look, wear a unique necklace, cuff bracelet or watch. Alternatively, you can look for styles that have jewellery detailing, such as this one from Mango (pictured above). 

Here are a few more of my favourite work appropriate jumpsuits.

Fashion Jobs – Coveralls, Jumpsuits, & Rompers – OH MY!

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs CanadaRompers, jumpsuits, overalls

It seems everywhere you turn you can see someone in coveralls, a jumpsuit or a romper. In-fact, I recently even saw a dog in little coveralls – so with that being said, it seems everywhere we turn we see someone or something in these adorable onesies! With even our fuzzy friends taking up the trend it seems only natural to follow suit and, well, playsuit-up.

 

The adorable onesies make everyday style easy by eliminating the fuss of mixing, matching and pairing. A sleek black jumpsuit with simple gold accessories and strappy heels creates the perfect combination of an evening out. A playfully printed romper layered over a swimsuit is a great option for the beach or lounging poolside; and you can’t go wrong with a cute pair of overalls for a cute & country-esque sort of look.

 

Items:

Lanston Boyfriend Romper, $143, available at SHOPBOP

Alexander Wang short sleeve romper, $491.32, available at Far Fetch

Splendid Overalls, $188, available at SHOPBOP

Alice + Olivia Lulue bouclé and stretch-woven playsuit, $396 $198, available at The Outnet

This spring, don’t be afraid to wear a onesie! The jumpsuit has come back in a big way, and it is the perfect piece of clothing to wear as the weather gets warmer.

The jumpsuit, or onesie, used to have a stigma attached to it; many people thought this style only worked for fleece or flannel nightwear. However, many designers and retailers are using the jumpsuit as a perfect transition piece for the season. A jumpsuit can either have long or short pant legs, and it can have sleeves, thin straps or be completely strapless. The best feature of this style is its true versatility. Since it comes in many different styles, colours and prints, the jumpsuit can easily be taken from the beach to a night on the town. The onesie also looks great paired with flats or heels, meaning that you can wear this style anywhere, and for most occasions.

If you have been searching for the perfect transitional piece of clothing that you can wear any time, the jumpsuit it just what you’ve been waiting for.

1. H&M Jumpsuit, $19.95

2. Forever 21 Forget-Me-Not Jumpsuit, $27.80

3. Wilfred Melodique Romper, $155.00, available at Aritzia

4. Le Chateau V-neck Jumpsuit, $169.95

5.  French Connection Jersey Jumpsuit, $150

6. BCBG MAXAZRIA, $198
