Jumpsuits for women: Outfits to inspire you

I always liked how jumpsuits for women looked, all so elegant! But I actually have no idea how, until recently, I didn’t own any long jumpsuits! No idea how that happened, but, well, problem is solved now, since I was really in the mood for some jumpsuits, so I’ve just got 3 of them at once (well, I had to compensate for all those years, right?).

And I must add that I’m LOVING wearing them! I love the elegant vibe the jumpsuits give and I’ve just chosen some models from a website called Femme Luxe and I’m loving them!

So get ready to be inspired with 3 different jumpsuits for women outfits that I worn recently here in Milan:

• Jumpsuits for women: 3 outfits to inspire YOU

The first jumpsuit that I chose was this asymmetric one with a long sleeve, it’s very elegant, but being asymmetric, it definitely has a fashion vibe to it. I went for an elegant outfit, pairing this black jumpsuit with black patent leather high heels and a black and gold belt.

Since this jumpsuit is an one-shoulder jumpsuit, I went for big and bold earrings to match the look I was going for.

Ordering online for the first time in a new website is not knowing how the fabric will turn out to be, right? Happily, I’ve been enjoying all my jumpsuits’ quality, they are all well made, the fabric is soft and it feels just like I was expecting them all to be.

When we think about jumpsuits for women, we have a lot of options and different models to choose from! With long sleeve, sleeveless, strapless, in a solid color or printed, cute, cool or sexy! The options of outfits with jumpsuits are really endless, making it possible to wear a different one whenever you’re in the mood for a different style.

 

Well, if you’re in the mood for something sexy, this strapless jumpsuit can definitely be a great choice, like I did on my second outfit!

Strapless jumpsuit

It’s a black sweetheart neck jumpsuit, that feels so comfortable to wear, but it’s kind of sexy at the same time.

To make it a femme fatale outfit, just pair this strapless jumpsuit with high heels and bold accessories. To make it more elegant, I chose this golden belt to dress up my outfit with more elegance. A red lipstick can always help on the sexiness. ;)

The reason why I always choose elegant accessories whenever I’m going for a sexy look is because it will keep my outfit sexy, but elegant at the same time (which is my style), so I always prefer to dress it up to create a balance avoiding being too sexy (which is never a problem, just it’s not my personal style ;) ).

Of course I went for a little more sexy approach with this outfit, but you can also wear this strapless jumpsuit with ballet flats to make it a little more “dress down“/casual.

 

Matchy-matchy, take a look on how my heels match my golden belt on this outfit, sometimes, it’s a little detail that can make an outfit even more special:

Black outfits are always appreciated, but some colour is also good, right?

So moving on from the black outfits, I also chose a light peach coloured jumpsuit in a very different style. This jumpsuit is in a light colour and it’s made in a very classy and elegant style with frill sleeves. Making it a great outfit for the day or even for going out, specially now that we’re in the summer:

Here’s my light/cute makeup for this elegant look and my accessories are from Les Georgettes:

Are you in the mood of a jumpsuit too now?

Jumpsuits for women can be a great piece to wear at any time of the year, it goes well in the summer, but it’s also perfect for the fall/winter season, all you have to do is add a layer to it (with a jacket/coat). And you’re ready to go!

One of the advantages of a jumpsuit is that since it’s a “all-in-one” piece, it’s super easy to wear, because you don’t have to match a top + bottom part. So they are also perfect for when you’re in a rush and have no time to match all pieces of an outfit. Easy + stylish, that’s definitely a win-win situation.

7 Ways to Style a Button Up Shirt

Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?

A shirt is such a basic and so classic piece that almost everyone has at least one in the wardrobe, and did you know that it can actually be worn in several different ways? You can even make it look like almost a new blouse!

Como usar camisa: 7 Modos!

So I filmed a video with 7 different ways on how to wear and style a button up shirt, showing the same piece worn in different ways, not only in different looks, but also showing you how to style, tie or twist it to create a new way of wearing a shirt. In the number 7, it almost looks like another piece!

Sequin dress for the holidays

I love a sequin dress, specially when the Holidays are here and a sequin dress can be a must-have for this season! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner and to celebrate the holidays’ season in style, nothing better than a stunning sequin dress, right?

So thinking about all the parties for this season, one of the dresses I’ve picked is this stunning champagne and rose gold sequin dress, it’s a short dress and I’m loving it:

This dress is in champagne and it has sequins in rose gold, if you’ve been following me here or on Instagram (if not, just click @manuluize and follow me ;) ), you already know I’m loving everything rose gold, so I just fell in love when I saw this gorgeous dress. And that is perfect for the parties!

Being a short dress, I find it so versatile that you can wear to many different kind of parties where you need a beautiful short dress and with one like this, you’re ready to shine.

This dress is from a limited collection designed by Stephanie Pratt for Goddiva, the celebrity got famous for The Hills on the American television and she has been collaborating with the brand and I’m really enjoying this collection that is full of sequin dresses and jumpsuits, aka, perfect for this season!

 

While I stopped to photograph my outfit, this cute dog at a friend’s house wanted to pose for the photos with me, isn’t she lovely?

And here are some details of my look, accessories also in rose gold to match my sequin dress and a party makeup with a red lipstick (that I love):

I love brown eyeshadows for everything! For my daily makeup or in stronger shades for a party makeup, like I did in this look with a red lipstick (that I love for a glam-party look).

Long sleeve sequin dress outfit

Anyone said sequins? I don’t even need to hear the end of the phase and I’m in! I just LOVE sequins! So whenever choosing a night out or a fancy party dress, I do love a sequin dress.

And at this time of the year, nothing like a long sleeved sequin dress to shine through the night! And that’s why I felt in love with this Goddiva sequin dress in rose gold:

Long sleeve sequin dress

Nothing like a full sequin dress, right? This Goddiva dress was love at first sight! In rose gold, it’s the perfect party dress for a night out, for celebrating something special or for the holiday season.

It’s not the first time I try one of their dresses, and like I said on my other outfit with a Goddiva long dress (review), I was positively surprised with the dress’ quality, it’s really well made and so beautiful!

And this short sequin dress was not different, it’s a quality dress that you can wear and enjoy the party shining the whole night!

 

Rose gold sequin dress by Goddiva

This dress is part of the Stephanie Pratt collection created for Goddiva this season and it’s one of the gorgeous dresses from her collection. It’s the perfect dress to shine and party!

 

The back of this dress is also full in sequins and it has a nice cut out at the top, making it a sexy dress, but in a very elegant and classy way, just the way I love a sexy dress!

Short sequin dress in rose gold

For a party, my favourite shoes are high heels, of course! And to add even more glam to this look, I’ve paired this dress with some of my favourite shoes, because of this art deco details in the back. So I always think they are party-perfect.

 

The draped detail at the end of the dress brings even more charm to this beautiful sequin dress that I’m loving! By the way, even being a full sequin dress, the dress is very comfortable, meaning you can easily move wearing it and, of course,  you don’t feel any sequins inside.

Sequin dress by Goddiva

 

As for accessories, since the dress is already “full of life” and shine, I went for some delicate pieces, just a rose gold pair of earrings and one simple ring, so all the focus would be on the dress and me. ;)

Red dress outfit (StyleWe Review)

A red dress is that kind of dress that every woman should have in her wardrobe, and when in doubt, just start with the classics or basic pieces.

And this red dress is exactly that, it’s such a versatile dress that can be worn for spring or even for the fall/winter season!

It’s a red dress with a minimal approach (that I love!), so I thought it was a perfect classic choice to be part of my closet.

Red dress - Stylewe Review

You can wear it with a bigger bag like I did for the daily life outfits or you can pair it with a smaller handbag or even a clutch for a more dress up/night out kind of outfit.

I think I already wrote here on the blog how I’ve been a bit obsessed with red clothing lately, specially red dresses, I’m in such a red vibe these days! And do you know why? Because red is such a color-trend for this year! So if you doubt, go with the red!

As for the quality of the dress and a Stylewe review, that’s from where this dress is from, fabric and quality are nice and the prices are always affordable with some interesting variety of dresses and clothing in general.

 

And since I was in an all classy mood, I just decided to go with a pair of black high heels, some golden accessories like a choker, earrings and a delicate flower ring.

Velvet Dress for the Holidays (Stylewe review)

The holiday season is here! Glam outfits for who loves a glam season and I’m definitely one of them.

And here’s another holiday-season outfit to inspire you, a beautiful dress in black velvet that’s so elegant for the most festive time of the year.

Dress: StyleWe | Belt: Rafaela Mantovani

This dress makes me feel so elegant, in black velvet and with a boat neck, the dress is classy and sophisticated for the holiday season.

But to make it even more festive, I paired this black dress with golden accessories, like a golden pair of shoes and golden jewelry.

Black Velvet Dress

Golden shoes

Since winter it is, wear a big and warm coat over it to keep you warm. Instead of going for the most obvious choice of a black coat, I decided to go to a off white coat, that, by the way, is a very long coat and I love it for the colder days.

Velvet black dress

Because every one who loves a glam outfit should have a little black dress that’s elegant, classy and should I dare to say, fancy. Because you can also look gorgeous even when you go for more affordable brands and I love to mix them to create my outfits. This velvet dress is from a website called Stylewe and I’ve been finding many lovely pieces over there.

This dress is great to value the body’s silhouette, specially if you wear it with a belt in a high waited way.

Party outfit for Holidays' season

For the hair, I decided to go for a braid hairstyle that’s also very elegant:

Holiday Outfit: Red dress (Stylewe review)

Christmas is just around the corner, so we are officially on Holiday season! And if you think a red dress is a cliche as a Christmas’ outfit, wait until you see this red dress.

Dress: Stylewe | Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

It could be that I’ve been on a “red mood”, but at this moment I’ve been loving red pieces, like red dresses or red coats, I’ve been obsessed with red clothing lately (specially dresses). So it was no surprise to myself that when I was choosing some outfits for the Christmas season, I’ve picked a red dress.

Perfect for the parties this season or, let’s face it, in other parties all year around, it’s a red dress elegant enough for a dinner, going out or end of the year Holiday parties.

It’s cold outside? Add a black coat and attack! A black woolen coat is elegant and perfect to be paired with this dress, that also has some black and silver details (I said it was party-perfect).

 

Did you like my gloves touch? I get quite cold during the fall/winter season and I love some accessories such as gloves and scarves to keep me warmer. It’s that little detail that sometimes makes a difference in getting warmer and also in style.

Summer Dress in Floral Print

Straight from Milan’s spring, a floral dress outfit on Via della Spiga, one of the streets that forms the famous Fashion Quadrangle (Quadrilatero della Moda) here in Milan, known for being a neighborhood of fashion and sophistication.

I love a more delicate and feminine style, but to bring a trendy touch to my outfit and make it a little bit different, I decided to go for a metallic bag in rosé color.

Milan Blogger Manu Luize

An informal look, but cute and preppy. To make it comfy and pretty, I decided to go for ballerina flats, besides it’s super comfortable to walk around Milan.

 

The floral dress is very spring-like and fresh, after all, the weather here is more like summer than spring.

My accessories for this look with my floral dress were very minimalist and just a few pieces: just a pair of small ring earrings in rosé and a ring:
