How to Wear a White Peek-a-Boo Culotte Jumpsuit, Over 40 | Part 2

How to Wear a White Peek-a-Boo Culotte Jumpsuit, Over 40 | Casual with Denim

This outfit is part two of...

How to Wear a White Jumpsuit, over 40.

See part one (the smarter version) HERE.

I must admit that I like this outfit much more than my 'smarter' look.
Despite there being 4 more challenges with the jumpsuit worn this way.

{See the original 4 challenges in the first post HERE.}

1. Saggy Crotch

I know that leaving the jumpsuit 'loose' means that the crotch is lower, and I should find this awkward and unflattering....but I actually prefer it this way.
It feels more modern, and super-casual.
I would go so far as to say I love it's low-slung charms!

2. More Peek to the Peek-a-Boo

Yes there is more peek from the peek-a-boo, but I'm okay with that.
The looseness of the fabric means there is no ooze, and I feel covered and confident.
The jumpsuit has a built-in cropped top which adds coverage and interest.
The cropped part is not tight either, so it gives the illusion of falling away from a toned midriff (it's certainly not, but no one would know!).

3. Leg Shortening

A midi-length hem on a dress or jumpsuit (teamed with a flat shoe) is notoriously leg-shortening.
However, by keeping the outfit monochromatic we can get away with it... just!
If you have very short legs, and want to keep the flat shoes, try a shorter hemline.
In fact, a playsuit could be your best friend... it doesn't need to be super-short, just above the knee.
Petite ladies look amazing in a playsuit!

4. Less Shape

Adding a belt to a loose outfit like this can give it more shape, but you can also lose the 'feel' of the item.
This jumpsuit may be a high maintenance white colour, but it is still laid back and casual.
Leaving it loose helps maintain that casual vibe.

This version of the white jumpsuit outfit is so much more comfortable, and easy to wear.
Simple slides and a chunky necklace were all the jumpsuit needed to make me feel "dressed".
My (very) old denim jacket, and a fun bag finished things off nicely.

What are your thoughts on wearing things in a baggy, shapeless and supposedly 'unflattering' way?

Please let me know in the comments...I'd love to hear your opinion.

  1. ohhhh, I think I also prefer this 'casual' outfit, it's so fresh and cool and elegant too!, love how the white jumpsuit creates a column of color and flatter your figure, love the clean cut, love your white sandals and your statement necklace!, love your denim jacket!
    I think you look gorgeous, summery and lovely!

    1. Thank you Monica! We had a lovely couple of days and my toes had wiggle room :o) It felt good! XXX

  2. What a fabulous spring-summer look. The jumpsuit really does defy expectations, and wearing the denim jacket with it seems to give it even more definition. Kx

    1. Thank you. It was such a nice day I had to get my (blue) legs out :oP.
      It's chilly again today though...brrrr. Hopefully jumpsuit weather will return soon! XXX

  3. I really love an all white look Sam! The sandals and then the addition of the jean jacket break it up, but I am loving the wide leg cullote style on you.
    Thanks for linking!
