I love the idea of a jumpsuit. It reminds me of my childhood in Montreal and wearing cute lil sets that my mom would buy for me from Bonimart. I remember I had a blue jumpsuit, of the polyester variety which had cute buttons on the chest and a slim belt. I thought I was a kingpin. Well, not really…I was 6. But I remember I would love wearing it around the playground. I was a mini hipster. But cuter, bien sur.
These days when I see jumpsuits on sales racks I think Studio 54 and 70′s retro but still very age appropriate for the 20 to mid 30 set. The only difference is that the current pieces are low on the polyester and sweet on the cotton, rayon and of silk variety. They are light enough to wear with a bare leg or with tights and leggings. You don’t need to wear them with a heel if you’re so inclined. But if you want to sex it up, it is an option. A flat shoe works well and adds a simple but yet mod feel to the outfit. They could also make a nice change up from the traditional holiday party dress for your work and friend’s holiday parties too.
Now let’s speak about the obvious, you do need a wee body for these outfits. They are pretty stream lined. I feel like if you want to rock the trend – don’t let your current frame hold you back. You may have to try on a few different pieces to find a look that works. If you aren’t a tiny mini – get a looser fit jumpsuit that covers your bum appropriately, perhaps even with a full or long sleeve. The cut will make you look slimmer, very sleek and sexy.
Try these items on the next time you’re in stores. You maybe pleasantly surprised. Now that Christmas and holiday party season is upon us – try something a lil bit flirty and maybe out of the norm. Stay tuned for a post on how to dress up your holiday party outfit with some lovely jewellery coming soon.
Yours in fashion,
