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 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.
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.

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.
Most importantly is to enjoy this flattering fashion. I hope it stays around for ages – it certainly seems as if it is going to stay for a good while. Cheers, you lovelies x
