If you’ve been trying to decide whether or not
Jumpsuits are here to stay,
Wonder no more, my stylish friend
Formerly the exclusive territory of toddlers, auto mechanics and clowns, jumpsuits have become what was once unthinkable – a wardrobe staple. A sales booster. A moneymaking machine across all price points and brands. What’s all the fuss about this relatively odd wunderkind of clothing, you ask?
Here's my take.
A really cool thing about onesies is you can embrace the high-low method of dressing, as in, dress them up or go casual. Stilettos or brogues. Either heel height wears beautifully with the jumpsuit, making it an outfit in one. Making life so much easier for those of us completely strapped for time (read: all of us).
Call it lazy dressing. Convenience. Time-saver. Call it whatever.
The jumpsuit is a no-brainer for the modern woman.
Jumpsuits successfully combine elegance and effortlessness – two very difficult aspects to pull of, and, in truth, the perfect combination for event dressing. In fact, it’s that effortless quality which triggers the eureka moment. After all, fashion is in a phase wherein nonchalance is the most highly prized trait over glamour. Looking “done”, like you spent hours on your outfit, is so pre-2010.
Once you have found the right one, the fit is crucial, the jumpsuit is something to slip on and forget about. A two-legged equivalent of the LBD, if you will.
But it isn’t so much about replacing dresses, I feel, it’s about giving alternative options which break the rules of what females are expected to be seen wearing. Women of today want to feel comfortable and confident, and aren’t necessarily restricted by preconceptions of what glamour or femininity has to look like.
I can relate.
My first fitted jumpsuit.
Thank you, Daily Look. Why I waited this long to get to know you, I’ll never know.
We all need a gentle style nudge ever so often, yes?
