Jumpin’ for joy: Jumpsuits

jumpsuit

Throughout Fall fashion week, runway shows and blogspots, I’ve seen many variations of the jumpsuit. And truthfully, I’m here for it. I’ve always loved the look of jumpsuits and the silhouette it gives the body. The jumpsuit is definitely a throwback for me, I remember seeing 90’s supermodels sport them through catalogs, along with my mother and other women.

The sleek lines and tailoring of a jumpsuit can give your look a hint of professionalism. You can dress it up or down. The many styles and cuts can flatter any body type whether you’re big or small busted on top. A cinched waist draws you in, whereas the drop of the leg area can make your legs appear longer and leaner. Jumpsuits can be a great outfit choice for any occasion. A night out or even something slightly more professional calls for one of these. You can dress it up by wearing a fitted blazer, chunky necklace and some wedges or heels.

I love this style for Fall.

From high end to street, there are a lot of possibilities and outfit ideas that jumpsuits have inspired me to try.
