I’ve loved the look of jumpsuits and rompers (not the short, short ones) for a while. My rather lengthy torso, however, limits the number of jumpsuits I can wear. I do have a sleeveless jumpsuit that just fits my long upper half and I absolutely love it. I recently saw this maternity jumpsuit and figured that if there was ever a chance that a jumpsuit would be lengthy enough, this was it. Of course, I was still nervous to try it on, but lo and behold, it’s perfect! While there’s still room to grow in this piece, it’s so comfortable and chic. I brought it with me to Europe after I figured out how to wear a jumpsuit in winter. After all, you can’t have too many layers in the way…
How to Wear a Jumpsuit in Winter
There are two things to consider when wearing a jumpsuit in cold weather. First is the outer layers. You need to wear something that can come off quickly – for those restroom runs! This coat is really more of an outdoor coat, anyway, so I don’t wear it long once I’m inside. I did make the rookie mistake of throwing a shawl over my jumpsuit a few weeks ago. That lasted about one trip to the bathroom before I saw my error. As for finishing touches, a scarf is probably a must, especially if it has a lower neckline!
The second thing to consider when thinking about how to wear a jumpsuit in the winter is inner layers. Anything that goes under your jumpsuit is less likely to get in your way. I always wear a tank top under jumpsuits, but you can also add a long sleeve shirt for a much warmer layer. Tights are actually also an option – just pull them down with the pants portion of your jumpsuit.
