Style Advice of the Week

While a lot of us associate the jumpsuit trend with the ‘70s or possibly the ‘80s, this look is back and better than ever. After all, it is essentially a relative of the romper, which has been a hot trend for a while now. A jumpsuit jazzes up your look because there is something chic yet daring about it. I was re-introduced to the jumpsuit trend back in February when my boss wore one to an event, and ever since then I have been on the lookout for fellow Fashionistas at the University of Illinois wearing this tantalizing style.

My love for jumpsuits increased tenfold when I saw this Fashionista working backstage at a fashion show on campus. Her MICHAEL Michael Kors strapless belted jumpsuit stood out to me from across the room, and I could not help myself from asking a million questions about it. What this Fashionista loves most about this purchase is that the jumpsuit came with the belt, which makes accessorizing the outfit a tad less stressful. Personally, I think this jumpsuit looks like the ideal choice because it hugs in all the right places and is not overly tight, making it a comfortable yet stylish option for any occasion.

After this Fashionista educated me more about her jumpsuit and how much she is obsessed with it and would wear it everyday if she could, I naturally bought it. You can’t pass up a great purchase like this! While at the MICHAEL Michael Kors store, I experimented with some shoes that looked fabulous with this outfit, and I found the most comfortable pair to be platform sandals. If you want to accessorize like this Fashionista, pair your jumpsuit with a MICHAEL Michael Kors watch. Since this outfit is such a statement piece on its own, I would suggest wearing a cool bracelet and avoid a necklace because that might take away from the overall strapless look.
