Jumpsuits can be some of the most unforgiving garments to cross a woman’s body, but the best jumpsuits make the search worthwhile. Once you have a flattering jumpsuit, it gives you the no-hassle pairing that a dress provides (matching a top with a bottom can be so fussy!), along with the you’ll-never-see-the-crotch-of-my-panties glory of a jean or pant look. Plus, a jumpsuit always feels more special than what everyone else is wearing. The best jumpsuit is the epitome of bold minimalism: making a statement with as little effort as possible. And as many of us start to head back to the office and attend parties again, a flattering jumpsuit is a great option for a fashion-forward look with minimal effort.
Where To Buy The Best Jumpsuits For Women
Let’s cut to the chase. My go-to source for comfortable and flattering jumpsuits is Anthropologie. I have also found some fantastic jumpsuits at Club Monaco. Outside of those stars, most stores are carrying some sort of selection of jumpsuits, which I have scoured for you. The Shop This Post below has my current favorite jumpsuits for women right now.

When To Wear A Jumpsuit
I love jumpsuits for women when there’s dancing involved. You get all the coverage and freedom of pants, but you still feel dressy and feminine. I also adore the look for picnics or any activity that involves sitting on the ground. Again, you get all the protection of pants, while still appearing stylish, unique, and dressy.
A flattering jumpsuit is also a great option for work. The Miranda jumpsuit I’m sporting is the perfect example of a work-appropriate jumpsuit. Pair it with minimalist sandals and office-ready jewelry for a sharp look. As long as your jumpsuit is of a substantial fabric and you’re not showing cleavage or “weekend” skin, you’re good to go.
When Not To Wear A Jumpsuit
I neglect this advice often, but if you’re drinking, a jumpsuit is not a good idea. Once the seal breaks, you’ll be unclothing yourself in the restroom over and over again. I also find that jumpsuits can be cumbersome in dressing rooms, during intimate moments with your lover, and when traveling. Pulling down a jumpsuit in a plane bathroom always feels a little risky.
