3 Ways to slay: Velvet Jumpsuit

Today’s highlight item is a random find on a clearance rack— a velvet jumpsuit from Rainbows. Let’s see how I turned it out.

Since there are the faintest hints of fall in the air, I decided to do light layering with all three looks.

Dress: SHEIN | Jumpsuit: Rainbows (Similar)

For this first look, I took a print wrap dress and kept it open over the jumpsuit. It’s naturally knotted in the middle, so if you want to replicate, tie at the appropriate place for your body type. If you’re an apple shape, aim lower past your belly; a licorice shape, try knotting to the side.

What I also love about this look is that the texture and print play off of each other. The texture breaks up the print for the eye and vice versa. Neither print is too in your face but together, the visual is more striking. Try looking for a jumpsuit in a jersey/lycra mix for a snug but not tight fit.

Kimono: Thrifted


The second look plays with proportions and by doing so, re-emphasized my distinct waist to hip ratio. If you are slimmer in the hips, try a billowy kimono style wrap over a fitted under layer. It will add volume without adding bulk. There IS a difference. The volume right above your slimmer hips will give a curvier look.

Duster: SHEIN (Similar)

I tried a splash of trendy for the third look with great results. As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of floral print or mesh. But in an effort to stretch myself, I picked a floral mesh duster and it’s my newest fave. It provides arm coverage without adding heat. It breathes and understated texture on texture on texture makes it look almost like a moving painting.

I added some banging orange earrings that offer a crisp pop of color to the overall dark-colored look. It lifts the whole thing and I maaaaay be warming up to the idea of more florals and mesh.
