Words cannot describe how much I love jumpsuits. I own at least a dozen of them- denim, black, green, blue, white, grey, and various printed versions. I wear short ones in summer and full-lengths in winter. Is it the way they flaunt your figure or their ease of application? Either way, I guess you will only agree with me if you have tried a jumpsuit. They are my alternative to dresses this season.
There are only 2 rules to the jumpsuit: choose a flattering cut even if means going one size up(the looser the garment, the thinner you appear!) and always wear long jumpsuits with heels.
If you hold a prejudiced view against jumpsuits. I hope the following photos will change your view and life forever.
A glammed-up version in classic black, by Stella McCartney. Puffy sleeves are optional, sharp heels are not.
You can tell by her smart and polished style that this is a Parisian chick. Eva is a regular on thesartorialist.com. I love the tuxedo tailoring of this gorgeous jumpsuit. Eva, please tell me where you got it from.
Please focus on BCBG Max Azria’s silky grey one-piece worn by Aussie model Abbey Lee Kershaw. See what I mean by heels? The belt accentuates her tiny waist and those leather sandals raises her to great heights.
Here is a demonstration of a Thandie Newton-lookalike sporting the ready-to-wear grey jumpsuit. The buttersoft leather jacket with rolled-up sleeves and her black clutch adds an air of sophistication to her fun one-piece suit. This beautiful lady has refined taste. I like.
The gorgeous Natasha Poly in a magenta silk jumpsuit for the resort collection from Louis Vouitton 09. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? A must-have piece for going to anywhere and everywhere balmy and exotic. Love the deep pockets and the golden wedges.
Former American model Trish Goff, now front-row seater at fashion shows also pays patronage to the jumpsuit in a peach number. What’s not to love? The colour is a smash hit and the biker-details are super hot. Warning: highly rockable and may evoke too many admiring glances. Next to Trish, Daisy Lowe looks on enviously.
