We’ve selected four of our favourite influencers to show you how they style their Ilk + Ernie jumpsuits, so you can see just how easy it is to make your jumpsuit stand out!

Inspiration for how to style a jumpsuit

Firstly, we have the beautiful and mega talented @sara_waiste wearing Ilk + Ernie’s Joni playsuit in a luscious pale blue. Sara has gone for a gorgeous spring look with a classic Louis Vuitton bag and pair of timeless loafers, making this outfit look effortlessly chic.



Next, we have the lovely @n.ann.thrift wearing our Brooke workwear boiler suit in pink. We love how she’s styled this boiler suit with a fun zebra print and pair of chunky black boots. It’s always great to add a print with block colours like this. We love it!



In this photo, we have @izzy_manuel – the hun of all HUNS in our Brooke workwear jumpsuit. Her bold printed shoes and statement bag give her outfit a super fun pop of colour. Without a doubt the Brooke jumpsuit manages to do both cool and casual at the same time, with the ability to be dressed up or down. 



Next up, we have @saffronliberty wearing our Bowie jumpsuit. She’s transformed this statement piece into something funky as hell. With so many accessories which can be swapped out for different ones, rewearing could almost go unnoticed. This cool and casual look is ideal for lunch out with the girls.



Last but not least, we have the iconic @fellaby wearing our Farah workwear wide legged jumpsuit in red gingham. We absolutely love how Faye has styled this jumpsuit with a fun and bright long sleeve floral top, warm woolen socks and chunky Prada sandals. This is a perfect tran-seasonal look for unpredictable British weather!

Jumpsuit styling tips

  1. Pair with a sun hat and sandals – In Spring and Summer, add a stylish sun hat to elevate your look. We even have a matching gingham bucket hat to make the perfect pair with our Farah jumpsuit in red gingham. Slip on a pair of sandals to complete the look.


  1. Add a turtleneck underneath – Get your jumpsuit outfit winter-ready by layering with a snug turtleneck underneath and pairing with some wooly socks and boots. This winter style works perfectly with wide-legged and tapered leg jumpsuits. If it’s really chilly, you can sneak on your thermals underneath too!


  1. Add a blazer and heels – Introduce sophistication and take your jumpsuit out on the town by dressing it up with a blazer and heels. This chic look is ideal for hitting the wine and tapas bar or for a classy date night look.


  1. Go bold – Add some block colour with shoes or any range of accessories to make a statement. If you’re feeling extra daring, take it to the next level with a bright lipstick colour too.


  1. Add a belt – For a sexier and even more flattering style of wear, try adding a chunky belt to your jumpsuit. This will help to define your silhouette and accentuate your waist. Try matching your belt with a pair of earrings or a bag. Colour coordination is a great way to ensure a well put together look.
