Jumpsuits Over 40

Women over 40 are told ALL THE TIME that we can’t wear certain things. That is just NOT right. You can rock anything you feel confident and comfortable wearing. Being told we can’t do something actually makes us want to do it even more…anyone else!? Jumpsuits are one of those controversial items women over 40 are told they can’t wear. Well, we beg to differ. Exhibit A is below. The sophisticated but casual jumpsuit below has the added bonus of being insanely comfortable and stylish. Keep scrolling to see this chic jumpsuit for women over 40 and tips to help you find a jumpsuit that will work best for you…

Ivory Jumpsuit

This ivory jumpsuit by Splendid is SO chic, versatile, and flattering! You can dress it up for dinner with heels or dress it down for running errands or grabbing coffee with a pair of sneakers. It’s one of those pieces you’ll wear on repeat this summer. It’s a cotton-blend fabric so it’s super lightweight, breathable, comfortable, and doesn’t wrinkle too much (perfect for spring/summer travel). The tie at the waist offers some added definition and the straight leg silhouette is very flattering on Erin’s body shape. But a jumpsuit with a flared leg would also be flattering and help to create that hourglass body shape. It has a front zip so you can wear it more or less zipped up depending on your comfort level. The length (28” inseam) is perfect on Erin at 5’4”. She has on a pair of cute, heeled mules but she could easily wear this jumpsuit with flats or sneakers too.

Tips on Jumpsuits Over 40

The jumpsuit above is wonderful! But if you’re searching for a jumpsuit that works for you, we have a few helpful tips below and a few more favorites…

  1. Know your body shape. If you haven’t already, check out this post on how to determine your body shape. Knowing your body shape will help you choose a flattering neckline, shape, and overall style of jumpsuit that works best for you!
  2. Choose darker shades and avoid prints. We love the ivory jumpsuit above, but darker colors will be the most flattering and slimming! Prints…especially larger-scale prints…can make you look older and larger.
  3. Choose nicer fabrics. Some fabrics can be clingy and less forgiving…choose wisely! Natural fabrics will be the most flattering.
  4. Highlight your waist. Your waist is the smallest part of most women’s bodies. Finding a jumpsuit that cinches in that waist to create that hourglass shape (like the jumpsuit above) is key!
  5. Dress it up! When you find the perfect jumpsuit, make sure you accessorize thoughtfully and complete the look with chic pieces!

  2. Hi Erin,
    We used to grow spaghetti squash and now it is hard to eat one from the store. The ones from the garden are so good and the texture is silky and the taste is a little nutty. I agree just make the food good…it does not have to be a work of art.
    I want to find a simple long sleeve cotton blend jumpsuit. I would definitely not let age influence me.
    I am so glad you are getting help with your new adventure. It is so exciting.
    I love your wavy hair in the cool mom pic.. you should wear it like that more. Love u beautiful girl. Thank you♥️

    1. Thanks so much, Rita!! During my meeting yesterday my friends told me Christmas 2020 is probably too aggressive so it might be more like spring 2021. We shall see! This is ALL new to me, but it sure is fun! And, I’m elated to have a whole team of women to help me… Erin xo
