I think that question is one of fashion’s most difficult questions to answer. However, I know what answer I would give. Is there such a thing as the perfect jumpsuit? Well, I think that there is a multitude of jumpsuits that can make you look insanely awesome.
As of right now, I only have two jumpsuits in my closet, both made of very summery knit fabric that yearns to be pulled off of hangers when the heat calls for it. I know that the jumpsuit market has also expanded into evening wear as well – one of my best friends has a black evening jumpsuit that would give the Bond girls a run for their money! My advice for finding the ideal jumpsuit would have to be to know your body well, and what silhouette looks best with your shape. Do you like your jumpsuit slim, or cinched just above the waist? Do you prefer a wider leg, or a more tapered leg?
And now, a photo of me modeling one of my ideal summer jumpsuits on my back deck:
I am wearing a patterned summer jumpsuit with T-strap summer sandals and various other accessories. You see, if you get a jumpsuit that flatters your silhouette and moves well with your body, then your summer wardrobe is majorly upgraded! Try copying that kind of outfit in the grocery store.
Where are the best places to find jumpsuits? Believe it or not, I have found my favorite jumpsuits at consignment stores! I found the one pictured above at Crossroads a few years ago, and I haven’t looked back since. Therefore, what are you waiting for? Get out of the house, go shopping, and find your garment that’s the perfect mix between wearing a dress and bathing in comfort. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
