STYLE ADVICE: What can I wear with my new jumpsuit for a birthday lunch?

Posted on: September 1, 2015

QUESTION: I have bought the attached jumpsuit and considering all is well when it arrives, I will be wearing this to a birthday lunch this Sunday. Please could you recommend a jacket / jewellery / bag / shoes to go with it? My budget is up to £50 for a jacket and up to £30 for shoes and up to £20 for jewellery / bag.


ANSWER: We are loving the jumpsuit you’ve chosen, a chic all-year-round wardrobe staple ideal for day or night occasions. To complement your fab purchase, we’ve selected a few items to help complete your look:

1. Miss Selfridge jacket, £30: – Why not go full-out glamour with a sequinned jacket? It may be a bit of a statement, but if there’s a possibility you’ll be sipping champagne at lunch, you’ll have to look the part! We’d team this with a pair of fabulous heels and a dainty little shoulder bag. If all this means you may upstage the birthday guy or gal, a jacket such as this can easily be toned down with a pair of ballet flats, but where’s the fun in that?!


2. Miss Selfridge jacket, £30: A fantastic alternative jacket is this printed monochrome blazer with an embellished edge. Look out for a style of jacket that ends above your hips as anything longer will swamp you and take away the gorgeous clinched waist of your jumpsuit:


3. ASOS heels £30: – As the jackets we’ve selected are in neutral shades, add a pop of colour with a bright court shoe. This electric blue heel is formal enough for a lunch, yet can also be worn to year-round weddings or evening cocktails with the girls:


4. Dorothy Perkins sandals, £25: – For something a little more edgy, try this coral block heeled shoe for size. This sandal will also look wonderful with a pair of ankle grazing skinny jeans and a crepe blouse:


5. Zara bag, £29.99: – Although this shoulder bag is slightly over budget, we’ve saved you some money on the jackets, so we couldn’t help sneaking this structured little number into the mix. The white complements you’re outfit and looks rather more expensive that the £30 price tag:


6.Orelia earrings, £12: – Lastly, one elegant piece of jewellery is all you need to finish off your ensemble! Let your outfit do the talking with a simple pair of earrings or a delicate bracelet. We adore these dragonfly earrings as they are understated and will look great with everything in your wardrobe. We hope this has given some fashion inspiration, enjoy the birthday lunch and send us a snap of you in your outfit!
