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!
The “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.

The “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.

The “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.
