STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jump For Joy

At the beginning of the summer, I detailed for you all the versatility of short-alls. This Fashionista pulls off a similar style, but utilizes the sophisticated jumpsuit as a classy alternative to the more youthful romper. The pantsuit has yet to go out of style. Whether belted and flared in the ’70s, shoulder-padded in the ’80s or featured in denim during the ’90s, for better or for worse, this type of onesie has pervaded the streets of fashion capitals of the world for years now.

While we should try and avoid the pitfall that this garment can easily become, when done right, the jumpsuit can truly be elegant and stylish. This Fashionista pairs a simply cut, printed piece with a polka-dot shawl and classic black ballet flats. The result is a chic outfit perfect for her day of exploring the hot city of Barcelona on foot. The keys to her success are the breathable cotton material and a flattering fit created by cap sleeves, a cinched waist and a trendy trouser leg.

Try the look for yourself with a minimalistic black cotton jumpsuit. Flatter your waist with an easy going skinny belt and add a strappy flat sandal for a comfortable look to run around in. Take it from day to night by removing the belt, adding a gold necklace and throwing on some heeled sandals.

Just like its shorter counterpart, this coverall can take you from your errands to your night out with friends depending on how you accessorize. It is easily manipulated and super comfortable. Be sure to choose a flattering cut for your body type and avoid polyester at all costs. There’s a reason that this garment is closely related to the playsuit. Try to have some fun with it.
