What to wear over a jumpsuit

Jumpsuits have become increasingly popular in recent years and are one of the most versatile and fashionable clothing items that you can have hanging in your wardrobe. They’ve taken the fashion world by storm and from the runway to the high street, jumpsuits are everywhere. Whether you’re attending a formal event at work or just a casual outing with friends, jumpsuits are the ultimate package of comfort and style. 

However, if you’re looking to add some layers to your jumpsuit to give it that extra edge or keep you warm and cosy once it gets chilly, then you may be stuck for styling ideas. So if you’re looking at what to wear over a sleeveless jumpsuit, you’ve come to the right place. The fashion and style experts at NADINE MERABI have all the tips and hacks you need to create the perfect jumpsuit fit. Sit back and relax while we help you take your jumpsuit look to the next level.

What to wear over a jumpsuit

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when styling your jumpsuit and when knowing what to wear over a jumpsuit. So here are some of our top suggestions of what to wear over jumpsuits no matter what the occasion.

Go for denim

No matter what kind of outfit you're trying to put together, a denim jacket is the foolproof way to make your look effortlessly stylish. And this trick works just as well with a jumpsuit. We would recommend this if you’re trying to achieve casual and laid-back vibes for a day out with the family or evening drinks with the girls. 

You don’t have to think too much about this jumpsuit layering as they pair with jumpsuits of any colour or style. Whether you’re wearing a nude or floral and colourful jumpsuit, a denim jacket offers endless appeal. If you’re looking for an on-trend youthful look then a cropped denim jacket is a great choice. Or you may prefer a more oversized and longer denim jacket for a less fitted and more relaxed aesthetic. 

A floaty dust jacket

If you want to layer up your jumpsuit but the event you’re heading to is more formal for a denim jacket, then you may choose to go for a dust jacket instead. This is the perfect complement to any occasionwear look. They’re available in a range of fabrics so whether you want something lightweight and cotton or a more luxurious material like velvet, then you can find the perfect addition to your look. 

Just make sure that you take the time to find the right colour so that it doesn’t clash with your jumpsuit. 

A blazer

A blazer is one of the most chic clothing items you could have in your wardrobe, and wearing one over your jumpsuit is the perfect way to take your outfit to a whole new level. We would recommend a more tailored blazer in a colour that complements the colour and style of your jumpsuit so that you can create a chic and sophisticated look. 

For example, the DAVINA Black Blazer is the perfect way to make a statement with the contrast button detailing to the front and the diamante trim to the shoulders. However, due to it being all black, it doesn’t take away from the beauty of your jumpsuit.

If your jumpsuit is more of a monochromatic style then you should opt for a contrasting blazer that will stand out from the crowd. For example, the KARLA Hot Pink Blazer will elevate any black or white jumpsuit look. Just pair it with some hot pink heels and you’re good to go.

Leather jacket

When it comes to what to wear over a jumpsuit, the last thing you might think of is a leather jacket. But if you want to add a touch of edginess to your look then a suede or leather jacket is a great option. The great thing about this type of layering is that it adds a rebellious and sleek vibe to your jumpsuit and completely transforms the look. 

If you’re not feeling your most confident about this then we recommend you opt for a black leather jacket for a classic timeless look. But if you’re feeling yourself then go all out and be bold with a coloured suede jacket. Whether you’re going to a gig, night out or special occasion, this is the perfect statement-making combination.

Jumpsuit footwear tips

Aside from what to wear over a sleeveless jumpsuit, it is also important that you tie all your hard work together by finding the right shoes. Statement shoes are definitely the way forward when it comes to jumpsuit footwear, so some colourful high heels will always look good. 

However, if you’re not really a heels kind of person then a pair of chunky trainers or some ankle boots look great too. Of course, the chunky trainers aren’t really suitable for a special occasion, but they offer the perfect effortless vibe that is also comfy to wear all day and night long!

Heading out on a summer's day? Just pop on a pair of sandals and you’re ready for a day in the sun.
