Jumpsuits for women over 40

Today I want to talk about jumpsuits for women over 40. A well chosen jumpsuit can be a sophisticated option. They can show off your figure way more than a maxi dress, are just as comfortable, and carry an air of elegance. They can also take you safely from the commute to the office and even to a lunch date with just a few tiny tweeks.

I’ll tell you how you wear jumpsuits when you are in your midlife, what to look out for and most importantly what to avoid!

If like me you are short and curvy (or if you are tall and voluptuously curvy) go for a jumpsuit in a single dark colour, it is slimming and makes you look a little taller.

On the commute.

On a commute to London I pair this jumpsuit with a neat pair of ankle boots. Ones that fit quite tightly over the ankles work best. I’m a great believer that it is impossible to look stylish tottering about or limping through the tubes.

It’s also very difficult to look stylish when the wind is blowing wildly!

Wear a simple box style jacket for a smart look and a silk scarf with a touch of character and colour.

Go for flattering materials that are soft, flowing and stretchy enough to follow your curves. Avoid clingy materials though and ones that crease (too much – a little is fine and inevitable).

Go for a wide or flared leg for a more balanced shape. But if you are tall and leggy, by all means go for the skinny versions!

A long necklace with a simple pendant works well to break up the shape a little.

I carry a large tote bag and I can’t imagine a trip without it. It has room for my laptop, my high heels and more!

If you are conscious of your arms you could wear a white shirt underneath, but I wore this semi casual white tee which has a nice length to the sleeves.

Getting down to work.

I popped my heels on and placed my boots in a cloth bag. My trusty green bag was big enough to hold a spare pair of shoes making my life a lot more comfortable.

I personally prefer the look of a sharp pair of heels with a jumpsuit, but limping around London is not an option. So, I change into them when it matters.

Jumpsuits for women over 40 –  for work:

 

All these jumpsuits are well below £100 (and bonus – they are machine washable!). OTHERS SOLD OUT – WILL UPDATE WHEN THERE’S MORE I LOVE – SEE BELOW FOR A FEW MORE…

If you can’t get to change for your lunch or dinner date do not worry! I added a sparkly broach for lunch with my husband, which I had simply popped into the small pocket of my bag (and of course, I popped on a pair of heels!).

Choose a flattering neckline. As we inevitably start to cover other bits and pieces up it is always chic to show a little of your decolletage.

    A great look and great advice, I’m sure! The pics look really good too 😉 xx

      Thank you for taking the pics!! Your ideas were great and you always help to put me at ease. Love you xx

  2. October 24, 2017 / 6:58 am

    Great advice. They look fab, very stylish. I love the look of jumpsuits but to be honest, I’ve never had the confidence to wear one. Yet, anyway… #TriumphantTales

      You should try a pair! They are so easy to wear because they skim the body. x

      October 25, 2017 / 11:02 am

      Thank you so much! They are so flattering aren’t they!? x

    This jumpsuit is super cute! #BloggerClubUK

      October 25, 2017 / 11:04 am

      Thank you lovely! I enjoy wearing it x

  4. October 25, 2017 / 7:41 am

    You look stunning, very glam! They look really lovely and stylish but I find them impractical : tricky to wear in the winter with a jumper, hard to get out of when you need the loo 🙂 but for a special occasion I’d be willing to give one a try.

    • Maria Kelly
      October 25, 2017 / 11:06 am

      They are tricky with jumpers, true. But they look really great with a shirt underneath. I also think that they are a great alternative to a dress this party season – no cold legs! x

  5. October 25, 2017 / 8:45 am

    This is a post written with me in mind. I adore jumpsuits. And I love every single one of these you’ve included here. You look gorge in yours too! #bloggerclubuk

      I’m so chuffed that we share a taste in clothes Rach! x

  6. October 25, 2017 / 12:44 pm

    You look effortlessly gorgeous. I’m too scared to try a jumpsuit, I always feel my mummy tummy would be on display. But the ones you feature are stunning, I’d love to wear something like that.

      I don’t have a flat tum! The jumpsuit skims over it and the silk scarf distracts – I may have sucked in a bit too haha x

  7. October 25, 2017 / 9:27 pm

    I love this post! I used to wear jumpsuits all the time, but then I moved to Florida and it’s way too warm lol. Looks absolutely stunning on you, and I totally agree about the heels. Great post! 🙂

    • Maria Kelly
      October 26, 2017 / 5:13 pm

      Thank you so much! Gosh, I don’t think I’d cope in that heat – probably the shorts version is better for you! x

    • Maria Kelly
      October 26, 2017 / 5:14 pm

      Thanks! They are a favourite pair of mine – had them ages but they are still working it for me! x

  8. October 26, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    You look great!! I’m over 40 and I’m not sure I could! But they look very comfy as well as stylish and practical 🙂 #sharingthebloglove

    • Maria Kelly
      October 27, 2017 / 7:51 am

      I was wary when I ordered my first pair too. Now, I love them! They hide a multitude of sins haha x

  9. October 27, 2017 / 8:22 am

    Oh Maria every time I see your face I think how beautiful you are!
    Agree jumpsuits are underrated by women over 40. I wonder if they feel it’s a “young” look? I hope that’s not it. I personally adore them & wear mine with flats as much as heels, super versatile & easy to style. Just as you demonstrated today xx

    • Maria Kelly
      October 27, 2017 / 10:01 am

      Thank you my darling Michelle. I’m so glad that jumpsuits are so in at the moment. I love them. Thanks for popping in lovely xx

    Hi Maria – I’ve just turned 50 and am a big lover of the jumpsuit! In fact, I’ve got a special event I’m off to tomorrow night and my trusted black flared one is coming out to play! It’s so versatile and looks great with my leopard print coat 🙂 I’m not really a dress kinda girl but jumpsuits make me feel that bit more glam and ‘done’ than plain black trousers. You look amazing and love your choice of t-shirt under jumpsuit too – must try that! Lisa xx #BrilliantBlogPosts

    • Maria Kelly
      October 27, 2017 / 10:06 am

      Hi Lisa! Leopard print is so in – I wonder if I could find a semi-see through leopard print shirt to go underneath? Loving sharing ideas with you! xx

  12. October 27, 2017 / 10:44 am

    What a fantastic look! They look really comfy as well as stylish. #blogstravaganza

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 5:51 am

      Yes, exactly why I love them! They are so easy to dress up or dress down too x

  13. October 27, 2017 / 11:55 am

    You look great. I have looked at jumpsuits but was worried I was too old or would look like a CBeebies presenter! It’s great to know I can look stylish in them #thelistlinky

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 5:52 am

      hahaha love this comment! Happy to help anyone wanting NOT to look like a CBeebies presenter! x

  15. October 27, 2017 / 1:10 pm

    Oh my word, I really wish I could look as chic and glam as you! I just can’t put outfits together – I would love to pull something like this off though. I haven’t worn a jumpsuit in ages, I might have to try one out now. Thank you for linking with #blogstravaganza

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 5:59 am

      Hi lovely – Jumpsuits are the easiest fashion trend to wear, many of my favourites wouldn’t need matching with anything – except a pair of shoes! So feeling glam and chic is really easy with this look x

  16. October 27, 2017 / 2:34 pm

    I found myself completely drawn to this post. I love the idea of wearing a jumpsuit – having worn dungarees daily as a kid – and have always had a soft spot for them. The one you have on in the photos is gorgeous and I can see myself in that. Thanks for the fashion inspiration. #TheListLinky

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 6:01 am

      I wore dungarees as a young mum and have a soft spot for them too – I have a few pairs in my wardrobe today! I think if you love dungarees you’ll love jumpsuits – they both skim to body and are so comfortable to wear x

  17. October 27, 2017 / 7:54 pm

    Wow your pics are amazing, I love jumpsuits. They look really stylish but also casual depending on the accessories. Im 5ft 10 so sometimes struggle to find them long enough and without them getting tight around the crotch but I think they look great xx #blogstravaganza

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 6:15 am

      I’m 5ft 3 so I can get too much cloth over my shoulders haha. I think it’s important to find companies who make clothes that fit your shape best. I’m an affiliate of Closet London because their clothes are so flattering. From personal experience I can recommend them xx

  19. October 28, 2017 / 7:49 am

    Love the post and talk about the tube in London. I visited London years ago on spring break in college and I remember riding on the tube. The jumpsuits are nice but I’m too heavy right now to wear one. But I’m Workin on it!

    • Maria Kelly
      October 28, 2017 / 1:12 pm

      Thanks Deborah, the tubes are pretty cool, right?! It’s interesting you feel too heavy to wear a jumpsuit – I’m wearing one because I’m too heavy at the moment! I think a good one, well cut with the right cloth, can hide all sorts – a bit like a good pair of dungarees. Go to a shop and try a few – you might be pleasantly surprised x

  20. October 28, 2017 / 10:26 am

    Lovely. But what about the plus size gal? Work as well?

  21. October 28, 2017 / 10:32 am

    I think those type of outfits give a very professional clean luck and are very attractive easily accented with accessories like scarves bags and shoes FYI those shoes you’re wearing are fantastic I enjoyed this blog thank you so much

    • Maria Kelly
      October 29, 2017 / 6:03 pm

      I love that one! It’s so flattering I think and one you can dress up or down x

  26. October 29, 2017 / 4:47 pm

    Hi, I would never have thought of being able to wear a jump suit, you have changed my opinion and I may have to treat myself for wok and team it up with some ankle boots. #ThatFridayLinky

    • Maria Kelly
      October 29, 2017 / 6:09 pm

      I’m so pleased I’ve converted you – I love them! and ankle boots would work so well with them x

  27. October 29, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    I’d totally wear that jumpsuit and i’m in my thirties! Definitely smart but can totally be dressed down should be needed! Being petite but with a long body and tiny legs, jumpsuits are really hard for me to fit right!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week!

    • Maria Kelly
      October 29, 2017 / 8:05 pm

      I agree that jumpsuits are great for dressing up and down. I think you should try a loose pair with killer heels! x

  28. October 29, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    I love a jumpsuit, they’re so flattering and so easy to dress up or down. I have to admit that it took a while for me to take the plunge though – your tips are great for encouraging people who might be a bit nervous about it. I know as a shorter woman, I thought they weren’t for me, but you just need to find the right one. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheblogLove

    You look so stylish! I am envious, sat here in my PJs and sloppy hoody! I have one jumpsuit, but have only worn a couple of times for occasions. Maybe I’ll look out for one for the more ‘curvy’ over 40 lady… Thanks for the inspiration! #TheListLinky
