The warm summer weather is slowly coming to an end, which means it’s time to start breathing some life new into your wardrobe with fall pieces. And while we love taking the time to put an outfit together, we appreciate any trend that makes the getting ready process just a bit easier. Enter: the practical and effortless jumpsuit. They’re a one-and-done outfit saviour, made for those days when there’s just too much else to think about but you still want to look like a model-off-duty. And the best part about this wardrobe staple is that, with a little styling and strategic layering, you can wear your summer jumpsuits well into fall. Read on to see what jumpsuits we’re currently coveting. Wear them now with flats and mules, and, come fall, pair them with ankle booties and lightweight jackets.
On a warm afternoon, an overall-style jumpsuit will look laidback and cool when styled with a pair of sneakers and a plain tee. But once the chillier weather rolls around, swap your tee for long sleeves and turtlenecks and a pair of booties for the ultimate transitional look for fall. 29Secrets Pick: Plaid Jumpsuit, $39.99, from Zara
Bold Summer Print
This summer there was no shortage of bold, attention-grabbing prints seen on everyone from off-duty models to street style stars. One print that received a lot of attention was polka dots, and we’re really looking forward to transitioning them into the new season. Don’t be afraid of bold prints, just make sure to accessorize accordingly and style with season-approved footwear and your good to go. 29Secrets Pick: Polka-dot Long Jumpsuit, $99.99, from Mango
Florals are everwhere during the summer months, but they can easily be transitioned into fall. You can rock this print well into fall by integrating florals in darker, moodier colours. Pair your floral jumpsuit with your favourite summer sandals now and then add a cozy cardigan or jacket and some cute ankle boots come fall. 29Secrets Pick: Leith Floral Jumpsuit, $108.18, from Nordstrom
Stripes are a classic and they never go out of style. However, we fully understand why you might be a tad bit hesitant to transition this sea-worthy print into autumn. When the cool weather arrives, pair your favourite striped jumpsuit with a thin white turtleneck, a pair of booties and a leather jacket and this slice of heaven is ready to go apple picking. 29Secrets Pick: Pimkie Pinstripe Cami Jumpsuit, $63.10, from ASOS
Little Black Jumpsuit
Not only does every woman need a go-to little black dress, they also need a little black jumpsuit for those days when they’re looking for an ultra-chic alternative to separates. We love this linen number from Reformation because it’s perfect for the remaining warm days, but come fall, it’ll look extremely chic styled with a baby-doll t-shirt and a pair of ankle boots.

A new addition to the jumpsuit scene is the boilersuit, which has been spotted on street style stars from around the globe. Unlike your typical jumpsuit, boilersuits give a more casual, androgynous vibe, but with the right accessories, they’re extremely chic. Regardless of the season, simply throw this piece on, add some statement shoes, and you’ll be good to go. 29Secrets Pick: Long Chest-Pocket Jumpsuit, $119.99, from Mango
