How To Style A Jumpsuit For A Wedding - 1

Spring has (slowly!) crept up on us this past couple of weeks. We're well into April, and wedding season is on the horizon. Like most girls, if I have a wedding to go to, I automatically think about wearing a dress. After all, they're pretty, feminine and easy to style. But dresses aren't the only option, and sometimes, it's fun to stand out from the crowd just a little bit. Recently, House Of Fraser got in touch with a proposition for me (pun intended) - to pick a dressy jumpsuit from the vast selection on their website, and style it up for a wedding. Well, I have always loved the look of jumpsuits, but never actually worn one, so like a true fashion blogger, I embraced the challenge without hesitation.

At first, I thought I might find it a little difficult. As most of you are probably aware by now, I'm quite partial to all things pink and I love a good ruffle or bow - in a very sophisticated, grown up way, of course! As much as I think jumpsuits can look amazing, the idea of wearing what essentially amounts to trousers to a wedding is definitely out of my comfort zone. That said, I also enjoy trying new things, especially when it comes to fashion. And, as soon as I started browsing the amazing selection of jumpsuits on House Of Fraser's wedding guest outfit page, I knew I'd be able to find something to suit my style. Whether you're a girly girl like me or prefer a more sleek and tailored look, House Of Fraser have a jumpsuit for you. Palazzo style trousers, slim fitting trousers, full length, cropped and any colour of the rainbow, the choices are seemingly endless.

Eventually, I opted for this chic navy jumpsuit*, with pretty lace detailing over the bodice and wide, culotte style trousers. It's flattering, sophisticated, and provides a refreshing injection of something new into my wardrobe without deviating too far from my usual, feminine style - after all, feeling comfortable in what you're wearing is always the most important thing!

I love how effortless this is to wear. The crepe fabric is silky and lightweight, while the clever tailoring flatters my figure without any clinging or pinching. And my legs are completely covered, which brings with it one huge advantage - no need to worry about fake tanning! I do kind of wish it had pockets - I love a good "hand in pocket" pose - but as my husband pointed out to me, pockets might spoil the silhouette. He is quite the fashion expert these days!

My Styling Tips

As the jumpsuit is quite simple, I decided to have some fun with accessories when it came to styling it up. I added elegant heels and a bag in different tones of pink, which is a colour I always think looks lovely against navy blue. The gold stud details on both tie the two pieces together, as well as adding a little touch of luxury, while my pearl earrings compliment the pearl embellishments on the bag and subtly draw attention back towards the lace detail of the bodice.

A more pared down look would also have worked nicely, I think. Perhaps a simple, metallic clutch and barely there sandals in a matching hue? Either way, you could add a fitted white blazer or soft pink pashmina into the mix in case of questionable weather. If you're fond of wearing hats during wedding season, I also think a fascinator would look great with this, or indeed any jumpsuit.

I must confess, I've been pleasantly surprised by how versatile jumpsuits actually are. A wide leg style like mine would look great with wedges - perfect if the wedding you're going to is more laid-back and/or on a beach! Conversely, a sleek, tailored little number in an understated colour could be paired with bright stilettos for a smart city occasion. I love the way my dainty earrings look against the detailed bodice of my jumpsuit, but this season's statement tassel earrings would look fabulous with a plainer, bandeau style bodice. There really are so many possibilities!

  4. I like the length on the jumpsuit and how it flares out, gives it a different look! I wore a jumpsuit to the last wedding I went too, I feel more like myself rather than a girly dress!

  5. I don´t think I own a jumpsuit, despite the fact that I have worn trousers to weddings on several occasions. I think it is the whole bathroom dilemma that puts me off.
