3 Ways to Style a Jumpsuit for Summer

Everyone loves a good summer dress. Dresses make such an easy outfit — it’s just one piece and you’re good to go! You look polished and put together, even if the dress is as soft as pajamas. But, dresses aren’t the only style that meet this criteria. Jumpsuits and rompers are equally as comfortable, chic and convenient!

Our women’s Open Road Romper is no exception! Made with an ultra-soft and lightweight jersey fabric, you’ll be comfortable all day long. The wide leg is super flattering and very on-trend. The color and subtle pattern make this an extremely versatile piece, able to be paired with a variety of pieces and colors in your closet! We know you’re always looking for fun new ways to style your pieces, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite ways to style our Open Road Romper.

3 ways to style a jumpsuit for summer

Cozy on Up

We’re firm believers that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort (or vice versa), which is why a jumpsuit is the perfect item for days when you want to be cozy, but you need to look put together (hello, Zoom calls)! Curl up in our adorable Wouldn’t You Know Sweater and you’ll be at peak comfort level. Choose a simple accessory like a trendy headband to push your hair back and just like that, you’ll be polished in just three pieces! Need to run out for errands? Just slip into some comfy espadrilles and people will be none the wiser that you feel like you’re in your jammies.

Step Into Summer

Jumpsuits are one of those styles that can be worn for just about any occasion. Date night? Choose a jumpsuit. Beach vacation? Pack your jumpsuit. Family cookout? You guessed it, grab your jumpsuit. No matter the occasion, the Open Road Romper is ready to shine. Choose a few neutral summertime accessories to let the jumpsuit do the talking. We love a straw hat, beaded earrings and stackable bracelets! Platform wedges are a must-have for summer since they look dressy, but are actually quite comfortable and easy to walk in.

Going Places

Although we love to dress up for nice occasions and stay cozy indoors, a lot of life is filled with days and moments somewhere in-between — errands, lunch dates with friends and going to your kiddo’s softball game. For these everyday occasions when you want to look and feel great without making a fuss, keep it simple with a few staple pieces. A jean jacket is a closet must-have because it truly goes with everything. A cute pair of sandals will easily be your most-worn shoes in your closet from May to August. Lastly, a simple long necklace is such a versatile piece that you can wear to dress up a tee, dress or in this case, a jumpsuit. Add this trifecta of pieces and you’ll be ready to conquer the day.

Get ready to go places this summer in the Matilda Jane soft knit jumpsuit. Layer with a denim jacket and comfortable sandals for all your summer errands and activities.

Sneak Peek: May Collection Inspiration

It’s that time again — our next monthly release is almost here! We’re less than 24 hours away from the drop of our May collection and believe us when we say we’re just as excited as you are! For April, we just started to dip our toes into warm-weather style and now by May, we’re full-on ready for summer! Our May release is super special and we can’t wait to show it to you! But first, we got the scoop on our latest collection from none other than our VP of Design herself, Madeline Katzel! Let’s see what she had to say about May!

MJC: We’re so excited to learn more about the May release. Can you start by telling us about the colors you chose?

MK: “May’s color palette has all the happy hues of the rainbow! These few brighter pops are for true summertime.”

MJC: We love rainbows! What was your initial inspiration when designing for the May release?

MK: “Summer! To me, May is really the first month to get outside and enjoy the warmth of the summer months to come.”

MJC: Are there any special details this month that stand out to you?

MK: “Yes — there are SO many nods to rainbows this month. One dress has an entire paneled rainbow on it— and of course, it’s super twirly!”

MJC: Oooh! Tell us more about this dress!

MK: “The Charms Dress is one of my favorites. Not only is each separate panel the most gorgeous shade, but when they’re all put together it makes the perfect rainbow. Not to mention, it’s so twirly and fun making it an amazing dress for summer!”

MJC: So fun! Let’s chat about the women’s line next. Which style is your favorite?

MK: “I love the Sunset Season Maxi Dress. It’s super comfy and so stylish — plus, I love the vertical stripes! I’ll be wearing mine with a denim jacket on top.”

MJC: Before we go, there is a big holiday coming up — Mother’s Day. If someone is looking for a great gift for their mom or maybe even treat themselves, what style would you recommend?

MK: “I think the Changes Open Cardi is the perfect gift for mom. It’s an open stitch kimono, making it a beautiful layer to work over everything.”

We know you are super excited for tomorrow’s release! What are you most excited to shop? Comment below!

     

How to Mix and Match Our Girls April Separates

One of the best thing about our girls line is that it’s always designed to mix and match in so many ways. Just a few pieces can create multiple outfits, so you can truly get so much out of each style! Our April line is no different, with the colorful spring pieces creating so many bold and playful combinations.

Not sure where to start? Let us help! To get the most out of each item, you want to create a mini capsule wardrobe. Essentially, you want to select pieces that all pair back to each other with ease (which is super easy at Matilda Jane). We recommend starting with five items, which can mix and match into six different outfits. You’ll want to choose two tops, two bottoms and one dress. Here’s how you can do it for April.

We chose the Born to Be Brave Top and Pandemonium Tunic for our tops to have a short-sleeved and sleeveless option. For bottoms, we chose a legging, the Let’s Be Loud Legging, and a shortie, the Fearless Shortie. Although any of our super fun dresses would be great options, we love the twirliness of our Dot A Lot Dress. Now it’s time to mix and match!

Now it’s your turn! Share with us how you mix and match your Matilda Jane styles on Instagram using the hashtag #mjmixandmatch so we can see your combinations!
