Style Guide: How to Wear a Jumpsuit at Any Age

Jumpsuits are a must-have staple in every woman’s closet, no matter her age. The head-to-toe, all-in-one garment creates a striking look that goes beyond a simple casual dress or pants and top combo, and into more fashionable territories. They’re comfortable to wear day to night and are fabulously on-trend for women at any age. Not to mention, the ease of a “one-and-done” look! It's what we’re all looking for these days! 

Did you know? The jumpsuit was invented in 1919 by Italian painter Ernesto Michahelles. Michahelles originally called his garment creation “tuta,” a word that refers to the “T” shape of his first suit-style jumpsuit. At that time the style was only worn by skydivers and parachutists which eventually led to what we now call it today—jumpsuit.

How to Wear a Jumpsuit

Here are a couple of our tips to keep in mind when wearing a jumpsuit:

  1. If you are tall, select a wide-leg jumpsuit that finishes just above the ground.
  2. If you are short, choose a cropped jumpsuit style. 
  3. For a formal event, pick a sleek and well-tailored special occasion jumpsuit that flatters your figure. 
  4. For a cool casual look, wear a loose-fitting everyday jumpsuit that features an elasticated or drawstring waist. 
  5. Complete your jumpsuit look with fashionable accessories, such as jewelry and belts, or use layering pieces to add interest. 

Team CA couldn’t be more thankful for the creation of jumpsuits! You’ll often find at least 5 women on our team wearing one on any given day—from a dressed-up everyday jumpsuit to a classy, tailored workwear jumpsuit. Our teammates range from their late 20s to early 70s, so if that’s not testament enough that you can wear a jumpsuit at any age, we don’t know what is! 

Here are a couple of our favorite jumpsuits for Summer:


Paige is 1950s nostalgia meets modern fashion. From the polka dot print and pop of red at the waist, to the shirred shoulder straps and cropped wide-leg pant, there’s so much to love about Paige. Day to night, no matter the outing, you can wear Paige comfortably and confidently.

Pair it with block heels for a fashionably comfortable look, or opt for white sneakers for a super sleek casual look, like our friends Julie and Leanna did. 

“I love the diversity of this jumpsuit! I can wear it out for dinner, to a friend’s barbeque, or throw a blazer on and I am off to work.”

- Jocelyn L.


Melissa is that jumpsuit you'll put on Saturday morning and never want to take off. Made from stretch jersey knit, this wide-leg jumpsuit is the ultimate in comfort and chic. Its strapless design makes it easy to slip on and wear from day to night, while the tie at the waist creates definition and accentuates your figure. Simply add a cardigan or denim jacket when the temperature starts to cool down.

Add a little flair to the staple black jumpsuit by throwing on a bold hat during the day like our friend Julia or a statement necklace and heels for date night like Romi. 


With it’s bright and eye-catching colors, this mustard botanical version of Melissa is cropped for an easy, casual daytime feel. You’ll wear this jumpsuit on repeat all Summer.

Throw on some bold accessories and strappy heels for a trendy look like our friend Rose, or bare it all for a casual beach look like Leanna.

“I live in Florida. This jumpsuit is perfect. You will not be disappointed if you purchase it.” 

- Rita M.


If an all black look is too basic for you, a polka dot option is available for the full length Melissa jumpsuit.

Wear it by itself like Sarah, or add an eye-catching belt to break up the print like our friend Kym.


We love a jumpsuit that can go from work to play in minutes. Made from printed stretch jersey knit, Morgan is your new go-to, every day jumpsuit. The faux wrap of the bodice accentuates your waist, while the cropped wide-leg pant elongates your legs and adds movement.

Pair Morgan with a white denim jacket like Kristin for a daytime look, or truly make it your own with a hat and crochet shawl like Nancy.


If stripes are not your thing, try our polka dot version of the Morgan jumpsuit.

It’s a great one-and-done casual look that you’ll be reaching for over and over again like our friends Malika and Sarah.
