There are so many party-ready dresses on the market right now, but that doesn't mean it's your only option when it comes to getting ready for your next holiday party. And if you're searching for equally as stylish alternatives, Olivia Wilde's blue jumpsuit is a fool-proof take on an unconventional festive look — which just confirms that you don't have to wear a frock to get in the holiday spirit.
While attending The Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles on Dec. 11, Wilde was snapped on the carpet looking incredibly chic in a midnight-blue, wool jumpsuit from Spring/Summer 2020 Michael Kors Collection. The long-sleeve, structured jumpsuit has a blazer-like design up top with a defined lapel, button closure, and slightly puff-sleeve shoulders. At the middle, is an over-sized belt that gives the silhouette a sophisticated feel. The straight-cut pant legs fall into an ankle-grazing length, which allowed Wilde to show-off her shoes.
A jumpsuit, like a dress, holds the appeal of being an easy one-step outfit. So, instead of having to coordinate multiple pieces, you can slip into a jumpsuit and put the focus on picking out the right accessories.
When it comes to Wilde's outfit accomplices, she opted for a pop of color with bold footwear. The director and actress sported a pair of ruby-red, pointy-toe pumps that played off the deep-blue jumpsuit nicely. Adding a jewel-tone or a metallic hue is a styling trick you can use to bring even more of a festive feel to your own jumpsuit looks.
Follow the actor's lead and keep the rest of your accessories simple with a couple of delicate, layered necklaces and a sleek, box clutch in a neutral hue. This goes to show, that if you have the right jumpsuit you don't have to go over the top with the jewelry. But if you want to amp it up for more formal occasions, a pair of crystal danglers wouldn't hurt.
