Can you Wear a White Jumpsuit for Work?

This white jumpsuit has been a favourite of mine since I bought it, and I never expected to like it very much at all!
In fact, I thought I would probably send it straight back.

I was trying something different, but thought the chances of it working for me were very slim.
However, it's important to keep trying new things.

But here it is again, it's third time at fakefabulous.
This white jumpsuit must be doing something right!

This white jumpsuit is surprisingly versatile.

It's been pretty smart and very casual.
BUT....
Can you really make a white jumpsuit work appropriate?

That all depends on your workplace but, for any creative or more casual environment, a few tweaks can make a jumpsuit like this one perfectly okay.

3 Easy Ways to Make a White Jumpsuit Work Appropriate.

  1. Adding smart heels or booties.
  2. Layering a blouse or fine knit underneath (depending on the season).
  3. Adding a blazer, or sleeveless jacket, over the top.

Today, I decided to keep this outfit simply black and white.
Black and white seems just a little smarter than other colour combinations, even when the shapes are more casual.
Black and white is a classic.

I kept the outfit loose and easygoing by adding a black and white sleeveless cardigan over the top.
The cardigan gave me bum coverage, and extra warmth for the Scottish summer chills.
It also added some interest to the outfit with it's striped bottom.

These silver backless loafers were the perfect partners for this look.
Comfortable and on-trend .
Of course, a heel would always be more flattering to the body but comfort won today.
These shoes are like slippers!

{P.S. I'm also wearing a nude cami and my culotte slip... money well spent!}
