This season, my go-to style is none other than the effortless and elegant jumpsuit. I just simply can’t get enough of them.
From their luxurious beginnings in 1930, to their silky revival in the ’70s and their bright resurgence in the ’80s, the onesie trend has come full-circle this year with renditions ranging from casual to couture and everything in between.
Exuding modern femininity, jumpsuits are—without a doubt—a statement style and the wardrobe essential of the season. The all-in-one design creates a striking look that moves beyond a simple dress or pants and top combo, and into more fashionably fierce territory. And I’m loving all the options.
Surely, jumpsuits and their shortened companion, rompers, embody all the best “c’s” of today’s fashion: chic, comfort, and cool. So I’m incorporating as many varieties of the trend into my warm weather style to make my favorite SS17 looks one easy, yet elevated step.
In this featured outfit, I wore a black, capped-sleeve jumper, detailed with an eye-catching floral print. The bold pops of canary red and turbulent teal add just the right amount of color, while the bowed waistband gives definition to the unstructured silhouette. I paired it with a comfortable block-heel sandal, and finished off the ensemble with a statement rosy lip.
But if you’re unsure on how to rock this trend-worthy style, I’ve got a few terrific tips on how I like to put together a head-turning head-to-toe look! The celeb-approved, minimal effort, maximum impact one-piece can be worn with nearly anything—from the perfect shoe, to layered separates—making it not only a fast choice but also a versatile one.
While shopping for the perfect jumpsuit, I always keep in mind what my needs are: do I want fitted or flared, sleeved or strapless, lax or luxurious? Once I know my clothing craving, the hunt amongst the seemingly endless sea of onesie styles becomes so much less daunting. When looking to amp up my weekend wardrobe or put together an out-of-the-box formal look with some serious wow-factor, I rely on the flattering flexibility of the jumpsuit.
And remember, though the one-piece staple simplifies the task of putting the ideal outfit together, I like to experiment with accessories to take the to the all-in-one suit to the next level. Try a complementary belt for a slimming shape, bold jewelry pieces for extra detail, or heels for height.
