She Leads, You Follow: Jenna Dewan-Tatum

On June 30, the stars of Magic Mike XXL hit the red carpet to celebrate the movie’s European premiere, and although the cast dazzled on the carpet, one of the stars’ spouses is topping all of the best dressed lists from the event.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum, wife of Channing Tatum (a.k.a Magic Mike himself), strut her stuff on the red carpet in this demure black and white Zuhair Murad jumpsuit, featuring a gradual beading detail spanning from her shoulders to her waist, which she paired with a simple black clutch and a bright red lip.

Although this look was worn on the red carpet, there are things to take away from Dewan-Tatum’s jumpsuit style that can be applied to everyday dressing, whether you are getting dressed for a night on the town or a day running errands.

  1. As easy as one piece – Jumpsuits are such easy pieces to wear; just put one on and you are instantly dressed! As Dewan-Tatum shows, jumpsuits can work for special events, but they also work for more casual, day-to-day dressing. To wear a jumpsuit for dressier occasions, take Dewan-Tatum’s lead and opt for a jumpsuit in classic colors (like black and white!), and make sure that fits perfectly to your frame: this means defining your natural waist, while emphasizing or minimizing certain areas to create an hourglass shape (in Dewan-Tatum’s case, she emphasized her shoulders with beading and balanced out that strong shoulder with a wide leg on the pants). For daytime, try the jumpsuit’s more casual relative: the romper. Look for rompers in fun prints and colors, and pair them with your favorite pair of cute gladiator sandals to create a casual, yet put together look.
  2. It’s all in the details – Dewan-Tatum’s jumpsuit is the perfect example of how fine details can elevate your look. The beading on her jumpsuit adds visual interest while also giving her a stronger shoulder, since the beading is more dense in that area than in other areas. The black band at her waist highlights her natural waistline, and although this is the most simple part of the jumpsuit, it is perhaps the most important because it creates shape in something that can otherwise be somewhat amorphous. Details such as these are can really make your outfit and are just as important in a jumpsuit as they are in a regular suit, a dress and even a shirt.
