Style Advice of the Week

The start of the spring season brought with it all the usual attire of pastel dresses, floral prints and strappy sandals. Fashionistas everywhere are all too anxious to pack away their peacoats in favor of lacey and sheer pieces. But this year, spring is seeing a new trend that is cropping up almost everywhere: patterned jumpsuits.

Whether your style is Southern California bohemian or country club prep, a classic jumpsuit can be wore just about anywhere. With simple accessories and natural, wind blown hair, a patterned jumpsuit and light cardigan makes for a classic daytime outfit.

What I admire most about this Fashionista’s outfit is how minimal she keeps the rest of her accessories. Traditional black booties and a loose fitted cardigan complement the jumpsuit without overshadowing it. This outfit is perfect for meeting with a professor or getting coffee with a friend because it’s simple, stylish and easy. To take this outfit from day to night, swap the black booties with a pair of heels in a deep Bordeaux or berry color. Add one coat of lipstick in a corresponding color to really tie it all together.

Overall, jumpsuits are just as versatile and necessary as a little black dress. They can be dressed up or down and can be wore at almost any occasion. This jumpsuit keeps the things dainty as it cinches at the waist, making for a very feminine silhouette. The pattern of the jumpsuit is eye-catching without being too in-your-face. As the weather warms up, venture into new trends and styles. A patterned jumpsuit may quickly become a staple in your springtime wardrobe.
