Today’s topic is something that’s been hotly debated in my house. Ok, it wasn’t so much a debate as me asking my husband if he liked jumpsuits, him saying no and me wailing whyyyyyyyyy? Haha! Let me start by saying I’ve always loved jumpsuits. I remember my mom wearing some fabulous jumpsuits when I was little and that’s probably where it started. So, when they came back into favor a few seasons ago, I became determined to bring one home. Specifically…one my hubs would love as much as I do. Now don’t get me wrong…The hubs does not dictate my fashion choices in any way. In fact, he’s a flats kinda guy and I have a closet full of heels. That being said, I’m all about looking cute, yet being comfy on date night…and jumpsuits are oh so comfy, so I wanted to find one that I could rock for a night out with my honey.
It’s actually taken me quite a while to find a jumpsuit that I liked enough to buy. Just because I love jumpsuits doesn’t mean I always love them on ME. Well, I’m happy to report that the search is over thanks to my Monday Mingle partner in crime Carly. She posted a killer print jumpsuit on her Facebook page recently and I had to snag it. Not only is it a gorgeous fall-ready print, but it’s so flattering, which can be tricky for a curvy gal like moi. And guess what? The hubs loves it too! I think some pigs must be flying around somewhere, but I digress…Let’s get back to that perfect jumpsuit. It’s cut low enough to be sexy, without being trashy. It ever so slightly hugs my curves, yet has a nice flattering wide leg silhouette. I think that’s the key to wearing jumpsuits. It’s all about finding one that’s cut to flatter your figure!
I decided to keep it simple when styling mine and went for flat sandals, a fringe clutch and my beloved African bead necklace. I could easily dress this baby up with booties or metallic heels and statement earrings or an armful of bangles too. It’s quite versatile and I foresee it getting some major wear this season. So, will you be trying jumpsuits on for size too this fall?
