How to Style a Cropped Jumpsuit

Why am I jumping for joy?

I was looking around in Michael Kors the other day, and I came across this. It didn’t look like much on the rack, but I was curious to try it on.

Part of me was saying, don’t bother because a wide-leg cropped jumpsuit is going to make me look frumpy. This gaucho style can be tricky to wear. But the sleek, minimalist style drew me in. Wow, was I surprised? It felt really different and new, instead of the same old, same old.

See that cute zipper on the shoulder. I love anything gold, and this sporty little detail did it for me! I decided to play that up with a pretty long gold necklace with a simplistic, modern vibe. You wouldn’t want anything too busy with such a sleek outfit.

The jumpsuit has a cute belt that comes with it. I thought it looked too dull worn the usual way, so I tied it like this. If you have a beautiful wide dressy belt, you could switch it out for an evening look, and it would be great.

How do you like my bag? I know, Gucci… expensive, but now and then, I treat myself to something I adore. My sister has this bag in that gorgeous bright pink color, and I fell in love with it. I don’t have many things that go with bright pink, so I bought a red one.

There are two sizes, small and medium. I bought the medium. I am mad about red purses. I always have one in my wardrobe.

It’s a crossbody bag, just the right size, and what I love about it is that it is both casual and dressy at the same time, so I’m sure to get a lot of use out of it. Please scroll down and take a look at my shoes. They’re from last year- gold Michael Kors slingback sandals. They have a low vamp and no ankle strap, which helps elongate my legs. I tried on strappy sandals, and my legs seemed short and cut up.

Interesting note: When I bought this, I talked to the salesgirl, and she said she had a gal come in and buy it for a wedding. I never thought about something like this for a wedding, but I can see how it could work. This one is quite elegant.

Also, a few days after I bought this, I happened to see it on another gal. I had to do a double-take because this gal was so petite. It was a full-length jumpsuit on her. So I guess depending on how long your legs are, and mine are pretty long, the look will vary.

I love this look. It just goes to show you; you have to try things on because you never know!

  1. I love this look and your post has help me to accessorise a jumpsuit I bought very recently. I got a fantastic bargain in the sales. I saw a TV presenter wearing this particular jumpsuit and just loved it. It’s a green that I really suit with lovely cold shoulder sleeves – perfect for my “mature” arms! Also in a great fabric which camouflages my figure issues. I have gold sandals and a gold belt I can dress it up with and add a pop of colour with a red handbag. All I need to do now is think of a dress down look by changing my shoes from gold to another colour. This is my “go to” site for all my style advice.
    Thanks a million for your awesome blog!

  2. Love your entire look! Earlier, this year I too found a Michael Kors jumpsuit . It is black with the standard length leg and silver buckle at the waist. What a great surprise when I tried it on and loved it too. I’m checking yours out to see if I can get my size.

    ps: love ❤️ the bag too! It’s time to start treating ourselves…if not now when😍

  3. Do you have to be tall and slim to wear a jumpsuit? What styles would suit us short and not so slim girls?

    1. Thanks Nancy,
      Yes, I really love the navy. It’s chic like black but it doesn’t drain my like black does. Navy has some energy and life to it and it is very popular at the moment, especially for evening wear.Thanks for dropping by!

    1. Hi Darlene, Nice to hear from you. So glad you like the jumpsuit. Agree zipper makes it!! If it had been silver I don’t think so. The gold and navy is just so regal! Cheers, Deborah

    1. Thanks Liv, Those pretty gold sandals are so refined like this jumpsuit and the open top really pulls the eye down from the hem of my pant to my toes, elongating my legs. Glad you stopped by.

  4. This is a fabulous look! I love it! I appreciate all that you bring to your site, with you selections of clothes and accessories, however, they tend to be on the pricey side for me. So, I make this a game – I take what you wear and then I find something that has some of the same look for a lot lesser price. I feel good about my purchases and stay within my budget while looking great.
    Thank you so much for you blog!
