HOW TO PULL OFF A JUMPSUIT
Jumpsuits are one of my go-to’s for easy summer style. There’s something sexier about a jumpsuit versus plain distressed jeans and a top. If you’ve been wanting to explore the trend, but haven’t known where to start, I put together a few tips just for you!
One of my favorite things about jumpsuits is how I can throw one on and go. No worrying about finding a matching blouse because it’s already taken care of! They are super great for busy weekends with the kids, but can easily transition to an evening out with a quick change of shoes. I wore sneakers for a relaxed look, but switching them out for a pair of stilettos is all it would take to go from day to night.
If you’re wanting to try out a jumpsuit for the first time, you have a few options. You can choose from denim or softer materials like jersey or cotton – (especially great for hot summers in cities like Chicago). Then decide if you’d like a pattern, color block or plain design. Color block jumpsuits can be very flattering for the midsection, especially if they have a wrap or tie waist. If you want to show off your legs, choose a jumpsuit with a tapered leg — they’ll look a mile long!
This white denim jumpsuit is a perfect example of that easy weekend look I mentioned above. The wide leg makes it very comfortable for running around with the kids during the day, but the corset detail at the waist accentuates my curves and adds interest for a fun night-out-with-the-girls look.
Because I live in Chicago and the temperature can drop pretty quickly after the sun goes down, I recommend having a great jacket to keep warm. I’m wearing one of my favorite plaid bomber here by Philip Lim. The bomber jacket will help make your look a little edgier and can be worn with so much more than just jumpsuits! You can throw it on with summer dresses, jean shorts and a tank or with a skirt and basic tee.
Jumpsuits are a trend you can’t miss out on! No matter your shape, you can find a flattering option, which as a mom, is very important to me. Summer is the perfect time to try something new and take some risks, so go for it!
