Dilemma: you’ve found a fabulous jumpsuit that you love, but it’s too revealing. The back is cut low or the straps are thin or maybe there’s a plunging neckline. But you still want to make it work in a more modest way. That’s when it’s prime time to layer a jumpsuit. This option will work whether you want to keep your look casual or dress things up. TIP: Choosing the right blouse with a complementary fit is key.
Here I’ve styled a sunny Target jumpsuit, now on CLEARANCE for $14, with a simple white top. I wanted a blouse with fluttery sleeves so that the top mimicked the volume in the pants. This one (now on sale for only $25) has extra pretty details with an eyelet border on the sleeves.
How to Layer a Jumpsuit that’s Dressy
If your jumpsuit is on the dressy side, try choosing a sheer or sparkly top underneath, but make sure things don’t get too busy. A top with embellished, bell, or billowing sleeves can also keep your look classy. Another option would be to go for a colorful or embellished sari blouse — these are usually cropped and will add an interesting element to your outfit.
Other Tops to Layer a Jumpsuit With
If you’re just getting started with this trend, try a simple white or solid t-shirt. Then play around with crop tops and off the shoulder blouses for summer and turtlenecks or long sleeved lace tops for winter. These are fun ways to layer a jumpsuit that anyone can master.
And the absolute easiest way to layer a jumpsuit is of course by adding a blazer, which I’ve done here. Throw on a jean jacket, fitted blazer, or cute cardigan to take your look from simple to polished.
