Getting into jumpsuits

3/11/13





Zara jumpsuit, Shop Sosie blouse, Proenza Schouler P11, ShoeMint heels, Jessica Simpson hat, Karen Walker sunglasses, Daniel Wellington watch

I was never really a fan of jumpsuits until I tried on this faux number on at Zara. Always kind of afraid of getting stuck to just wearing IT, especially if it were a jumpsuit of the longer kind, and with prints. Too much of... one thing. But it being leather-ish and short conjured up ideas on different ways to dress it-- alone as is, over sheer black stockings, or under a white blouse buttoned all the way up as you see here. I had always thought that wearing a one-piece meant that it would be difficult to be creative, but it turns out they do have some versatility. I've yet to find one that fits me comfortably 100% but this one was close, and now I'm on the scavenge for more (including overalls!--speaking of which, holy Phillip Lim). Of course loving this gorgeous one from Sonia Rykiel and this long-sleeved romper (hate this word) from Parker. How do you guys feel about jumpsuits?

aww, i love it! i think you had no reason to be apprehensive, because you're a genius at styling yourself, so really, it would never be too homogenous! xx

I need to sew jumpsuit like this one for myself, maybe not the same, but idea of leather jumpsuit is in my head for weeks! On you it looks just perfect!

Domonique Wilson said...

This outfit is all kinds of good! Love it! I totally agree on the whole jumpsuit idea, I'm not usually a fan but somehow this style just works.

I like them, but think they have to be styled appropriately otherwise they look kind of trashy. Love the 70s vibe you have going on here! Gorgeous

What is your hair type? And if you don't mind me asking,what products do you use? Your hair looks lush in almost all your posts, great hair.

I love jumpsuits, so easy to dress up and down. Love how you pulled off yours, I probably would've have trouble pulling it off!

Omg so perf!! Obsessed with your overalls!!! <3

Naina said...

The word romper resembles something a 2 year old who hasn't been potty trained yet would wear. Stick with 'jumpsuit' or 'awesome piece of awesomeness' and we're good ;)

I kind of have this belief that
1) you gotta have a good bod` to rock one (lucky you)
and 2) I dunno why but I have this fear of getting stuck in it while really, really, really needing the bathroom. :D

I think jumpsuits are one of those things that you could either look super good in it or just flop! In your case, you rocked it because
1. it's made of leather
2. it fits you like a glove
