Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit, jumper, romper, onesie… whatever you want to call it — I’m a big fan. Big.

However, if we’re going to be honest with each other you should know that my love affair with the jumpsuit was not always this strong. It’s become a deep relationship cultivated over time and many epic fails in the dressing rooms of my favorite stores.

What I’m Wearing:

Banana Republic JUMPSUIT (Currently 40% OFF with CODE: TREAT) // Gap BELT (Old; Love THIS one!) // Zara SANDALS (no longer available; THESE or THESE are similar!) // CLUTCH (Old; THIS splurge or THIS steal are similar!) // Loft SCARF (Currently on sale!)

As simple as a jumpsuit may seem, these all-in-one wonders leave a lot of room for error. Whether it was a too-long crotch, unfortunate camel-toe situation, waistline that lined up with my chest, room for a second person to join me, or a perma-wedgie there have been plenty of reasons why jumpsuits haven’t worked out for me in the past. Seriously, there were some serious swings and misses in the jumpsuit department. That is, until I discovered this BANANA REPUBLIC number.

Roomy and light, this jumpsuit is the ideal day-to-night solution. With a quick swap of accessories you’ll be able to transform a casual weekend look to one that is date night worthy. I actually removed the fabric belt/tie that came with this jumpsuit and swapped it out for a more structured belt which I cinched at my waist for slimming definition and an hourglass shape.

The lace-up heels further elongate the silhouette and make this look totally party ready, while the patterned and tasseled scarf gives the basic black outfit a bit more visual interest and texture. A good combo, if I say so myself.

Now, onto more important things — cocktails, anyone?
