My latest obsession, hot off the rack, the jumpsuit. There is an effortless ease of wearing a jumpsuit that I've become quite partial to, and little do most people know a one piece can be worn on almost any occasion. Whether you're heading to the office, a cocktail party, or if you're just looking for something more casual to sport on a Saturday afternoon, you can't go wrong with a jumpsuit. They are a chic alternative to a dress and work best when they look easy.
Nearly every designer has presented a version of the jumpsuit this season, and most websites include a 'jumpsuit' category on their drop down menu. The challenge is to find the perfect jumpsuit for your body shape. I struggle because I am very petite, but once I find the right fit, I jump on it. The hunt was on, and I wanted something different. I was introduced to Nasty Gal a little over a year ago and I've been hooked since. Founder, Sophia Amoruso is not only genius, but she has nailed what us buyers are looking for. This is not to say that every item I order fits me perfectly because even this jumpsuit had to be hemmed. However, more times than none, I am very pleased with my purchase. By the way, have you read "Girl Boss" yet? If not, please do.
I am typically attracted to a skinny leg pant but this particular suit is slightly wide legged and has a looser fit style which worked really well for me. I was really drawn to the mesh underlay it has, giving it that two tiered look. The stripes, weather horizontal, vertical, thin, thick, black and white or color, stripes make a graphic statement, day or night . I only wore a watch with my look today however, accessories can be used to elevate the look and a tailored blazer is perfect to tone it down. A simple pair of sneakers or flats can also give you a more casual look.
