Style Advice of the Week

The longer and slightly more formal cousin of the awesome romper that we all love—the jumpsuit, has made a comeback. This ’70s trend has definitely made its way back to runways, and with good reason. For a matter of convenience, it’s a college student’s best friend, especially when we have one of those days when finding a top for that particular pair of pants is nearly impossible. With a jumpsuit, that problem is solved. Not only are they convenient, but they are a refreshing and daring addition to any Fashionista’s closet.

The hunter green jumpsuit worn by this Fashionista reflects an earthy bohemian style that says she’s summer-ready. A strapless top part of this jumpsuit allows for a statement accessory and this Fashionista chose a multi-hued green necklace. Simple brown leather T-strap sandals keep the outfit in the earthy palette.

Jumpsuits of the dark variety tend to be more formal, so they can be worn for that event where you want to stand out from the crowd of those wearing dresses. Fitted jumpsuits are for those nights out and the bolder the outfit, the less accessories you need. Simpler and solid jumpsuits like the one this Fashionista wears can leave room for a lot of creativity, such as long necklaces or chunky bracelets. Depending on how you style it, your jumpsuit can be your designated summer power suit or casual restaurant attire. If you’re afraid that the jumpsuit might not fit your frame, splurge on a slightly more expensive one that is sure to fit better. Should you feel that you want to ease into this trend, opt for a jumpsuit on the conservative side which will be less fitted, but equally stylish.
