Who Wore the Denim Jumpsuit Better?

Who Wore It Better?
The Denim Jumpsuit Trend

Let's face it, the denim jumpsuit isn't the easiest item of clothing to wear, yet it has ranked favorably amongst retailers & fashion followers everywhere this season. Styled the wrong way & people may mistake you for a mechanic, but wear it with flair & this 90's comeback trend can be transformed into something striking. Celebrities have also embraced this androgynous fashion fad, each adding their own spin on it, but in the end, it all comes down to styling.  

Dree Hemingway personalized her seemingly laid back denim look by zipping down the neck and rolling-up the hem and sleeves. The model added a quirky Sophia Webster speech bubble clutch and black and metallic ankle-strap platforms to her outfit.
Gwen Stefani reworks her G-Star denim jumpsuit for a comfortably chic trip to the airport. Even at 43, Gwen wears this youthful trend with ease. The No Doubt singer added mirrored sunnies, metallic flat strappy sandals and a hippy headband to her look. She also carries a black and white slouchy striped bag.
Rachel Zoe gives us serious denim envy in her 70's inspired outfit, which comprises a short-sleeved onesie with wrap-over bodice and skinny fit-pants. Flavouring her look with a bohemian theme, Rachel dons a wide-brimmed straw hat, retro sunglasses, a chunky gold collar necklace and Christian Louboutin tan and raffia wedges. 

Rihanna has been keen on the full denim trend since last year, making the most of her distressed Armani jumpsuit. RiRi shows us the versatility of this tricky piece.
Left: Rihanna takes a masculine approach to styling her suit with a tartan and studded black cap, a chunky gold Melody Ehsani lion pendant neckpiece and camel Timberland combat boots.
Middle: The Barbadian singer folds down the top part of her denim jumpsuit for a more grungy vibe, tying the sleeves around her waist. She paired it with a grey Ksubi Channel novelty t-shirt and flat black loafers.
Right: Upstyling her denim uniform for a night out, RiRi adds a pair of classic black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Kylie Monique wears an uber fitted version of the denim jumpsuit trend, in this dark wash MET BEL pair with gold hardware buttons. The Aussie singer added height and glamour with nude Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps.
Ellen Pompeo keeps the styling of her full length denim look casual and easygoing. Her faded Etoile Isabel Marant jumpsuit features rolled up cuffs, wide legged trousers and a zipped down front. Ellen wears black heels and carries a brown Chloé bag.
Heidi Klum accessorized her Closed denim jumpsuit with a black and silver studded skinny belt and black peep-toe platforms by Christian Louboutin for a cool urban look.

It seems that a denim jumpsuit isn't just a one-season wonder and can in fact be a flexible and fashionable piece. As for 'Who Wore It Best', my vote goes to Rachel Zoe, her boho styling is impeccable and she makes this a trend that is actually appealing for even those without the supermodel height.
Who do you think wore it best?

I think with this look you must go lady like; the too byish look that Riri is doing with the Timberlands is too working man for me. I like Rachel Zoe's interprattion; clinched at the waist with heels. Too tight is also not good...you don't want to look like a stuffed sausage like Kylie.

Hey Sam, any idea where I can get one of those locally?


Pip said...

I of course love Miss Rachel Zoe's look as it is perfect and her cinched waist just makes this more feminine. With the hat it is just perfect. Hope you have a wonderful day, Sam and thanks so much for your lovely comment yesterday! xx Pip

Jackie Harrison said...

Gwen Stephani and Kylie Monique wear it the best to me great post.

Ivana said...

I have a hard time deciding on this one, since I probably never will a denim jumpsuit in my life :) I think Rachel Zoe and Heidi Klum really nailed down the styling.

Have a lovely Tuesday, sweetie!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! You made me smile! That risk is so true, I own one and I put much attention on how I style it in fact!:) Lol, Rihanna maybe doesnt care at all about it, in particular I dislike the first look with the camel Timberland, too much masculine in my opinion! While I really like how Rachel Zoe wears it, so I agree with your verdict dear! Plus, love the straw hat and the Loubouting wedges. Happy Tuesday dear, kisses! xo

Carmen said...

I think Rachel Zoe made the best choice, some of the other women look like builders or mechanics (especially Ellen Pompeo!)

Rachel Lynne said...

Rachel Zoe looks the best and then I'd say Rihanna looks great too! Hers is just a little more edgy!

ELISA said...

Rihanna rocks it!

I like Rachael Zoe, Rihanna, and Kylie Minogue. I think pant part need to be tight, when its baggy is not that cute.

Rebecca said...

Dressed with soul said...

Dearest Sam, I would love to own a denim overall, too, but unfortunately I wasn´t successful until today regarding purchasing this pieces!

As usual I like your selection and thank you really for your effort. And I think you know, that it is always difficult for me to decide which outfit is my #1! Today I have to winners: Gwen and Rihanna :)

The population of the village where I grew up has about 500 people, so it´s indeed very small. How many people are living where you live?

Good night :)

Mili said...

To be honest, I am cringing at looking at all of these :/ Hahah I guess it just wasn't meant for me. BUTTT Rachel Zoe is the exception, she still looks fabulous. I think it's the cut of the suit

Zahra Sandberg said...

Hi there! I have to say I believe Gwen wore it best! I couldnt even recognize Rachel Zoe! I also like Rihanna in the black pumps and blonde hair - very cute. For the most part this is a trend I won't be partaking in though I give these girls major credit!
