Don't buy the lies! 5'1 girls CAN WEAR JUMPSUITS! There is no height requirement to rock a trendy jumpsuit. But, there are a few things to consider to make sure that us shorties pick a jumpsuit that flatters our bodies. Here are some tips I've learned after several teary dressing room sessions...
When you're buying a jumpsuit...
1. A cinched waist is your friend
2. Cropped jumpsuits seem to work best (no hemming necessary)
3. A high waist will elongate your legs
4. Plain black is a good place to start
5. Confidence is key ;)
Why should you wear a jumpsuit?
1. You are technically not wearing pants
2. They are easy to throw on and go
3. You can dress them up or down
4. They make you feel like Heidi Klum
5. The are as comfortable as a dress but you can sit with your legs crossed and not scare people
I'm linking some of my favorites that are petite-approved to help you find your jumpsuit match made in heaven.
The Black Jumpsuit that I am wearing comes in two colors and is the most comfy thing I own at the moment. I will throw it on with a denim jacket for work or with some fun heels and funky earrings for a girls night. It is under $30 so snag it while it is on sale! I am wearing a size small, but could do an extra small too. Side note: Here are my shoes and earrings.
This halter jumpsuit comes in several colors and is only $38. It is cinched at the ankles to give you an entirely different look than my wide leg jumpsuit pictured above. This one shows some back, so it is a little flirtier! Love. Since the legs are cinched, if it is a little long it will be easier to hide.
Target does it again with this strapless cropped jumpsuit! I could see this being an adorable swimsuit cover up for the lake or beach, or worn with flats and a ponytail for a comfy night out to dinner. It is also under $30!
Vince Camuto makes this amazing dressy jumpsuit in petite sizes! *praise hands* It is more tailored than the other options which makes it the perfect nicer option for church or an evening wedding. It is more of a splurge, ringing in at $98, but it definitely looks even more expensive than that!
If you want something more flowy and summery, this $49 H&M jumpsuit has slits in the front of the pants that look so easy and breezy! Perfect for your beach vacation! I bet they flow when you walk... *cue the paps*
Baby got major back in this Urban Outfitters strappy back jumpsuit.
High-neck, tie-front obsession with this cropped jumpsuit.
This jumpsuit has #allthesass with the twist neck and cutout detail.
Because stripes are never a bad idea.
And to close this thing out with a bang, LOFT has an entire petite jumpsuit section. They even have some that are appropriate for work, play and lounging.
I hope these tips, tricks and finds will help all your jumpsuit wishes come true!
