The jumpsuit: the instant outfit that needs no overthinking. Also filed under “the easiest and hardest-working piece in your wardrobe”. And if you’re supermodel height? Happy days. You’re blessed with the perfect silhouette. But here’s the thing: a regular fit jumpsuit just won’t cut it. A tall woman needs a tall jumpsuit; one with extra body length. Without it, bad things will happen. Trust us.
Where to wear a tall-fit jumpsuit? Well, therein lies the joy. It’s a piece with infinite applications: work, drinks, club and brunch the next day. Take your stylespo from Solange Knowles who actually got married in one. So, if you haven’t yet made the leap into one-and-done territory, here’s our stylist on six ways to wear (and six reasons to love).
1. It’s a dress with legs
Anywhere you’d wear a dress, this burgundy one-piece will feel right at home. Stylist tip: this is the easy way to colour block. Add interest with an embellished slide for a fun, fresh look.
2. It’s unbelievably comfortable
Meet our bestselling jumpsuit. Soft, drapey, breathable; its lyocell-viscose blend feels like summer on a hanger. Stylist tip: cuff the legs to make your statement sandals pop.

3. It’s office-appropes
Note the faux wrap and belt: chic details that breathe new life into your workwear rotation. Stylist tip: pair with a structured black jacket for meetings with the CEO.
4. It’s the easy way to wear print
Don’t think you can wear top to toe print? Think again. Tall jumpsuit + monochrome + ditsy print = new summer go-to. Stylist tip: great for traveling, this viscose-jersey blend is super comfy and super stretchy. Just add sunnies and flip flops.
5. It loves a heel
When a jumpsuit looks this good, it deserves extra inches. Take notes from style influencer, 6’5” Alicia, wearing three-inch heels (insert celebration emoji here). Stylist tip: if you’re not comfortable with a high heel, you can still add inches to your fabulousness with a kitten heel.
6. It’s 100% party-ready
Move over LBD, there’s an LBJ in town. And this one has pearl studded legs. For our photoshoot with influencer and cool girl Natalie Suarez, we headed to a Manhattan loft – the ultimate party pad. Stylist tip: let the pearls do the talking and keep it simple with a classic black pump.
