NEW CASTLE —
Oh, the jumpsuit.
An item that I have such an obsession with, yet have none in my closet. It only partly has to do with the fact that my husband hates them. But after putting together this week's post, I may have given myself the push I need to go out and get one.
I want to show you that jumpsuits can be worn in any occasion. Check out the outfits to the right.
Professional — One of the least thought of places to wear a jumpsuit is to the office. But, they can be incredibly chic and grown up if you wear them right.
For this look I've chosen a classic off white jumpsuit in a drapey fabric that is neither too tight nor too loose. I added a black belt to give the illusion of two pieces and a blazer to increase the professional factor. (I'd also suggest wearing a camisole underneath a jumpsuit that has a bit of a plunging neckline like this one.) All that's left is to add a statement necklace made of black pearls, a classic bag and simple black shoes. Professionalism at its most fashionable!
Casual — Normally I don't like all over pattern, but I was immediately drawn to this jumpsuit. It feels absolutely perfect for summer. Wear it for a beach party, when you're out to lunch, or just heading out to do some shopping. The playful print doesn't call for very "loud" accessories, so I stuck with a cool chain necklace and greek sandals. Plus a leather backpack is very popular this season.
Dressy — One of the best places to wear a jumpsuit is for a dressy event, like a summer wedding! That was my idea when putting together this look, but it would work just as well for a night out with your partner or friends. A spaghetti strap is automatically sexy, so you don't need much else to enhance the look. Try statement earrings, a bold bracelet and bright shoes. I love these shoes with a gold cap toe to add extra drama.
Do you own any jumpsuits?
