When Garance says, “We have to do something about jumpsuits!! I just got an amazing one!,” well, I listen. So we talked a little bit about how there have really been so many iterations on what a jumpsuit is today (tailored, short, silk, printed… you get it), but it’s really about how you style it.
For an item of clothing that was traditionally and functionally meant for flying those jet planes and changing tires, wearing one today, as a woman, may seem like a far from flattering option. It kind of reminds me of Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, but even she was so sexy in those workwear pieces! It isn’t impossible is all I’m trying to say (and you don’t have to pull a bucket of water on yourself either!).
So we wanted to show you a few ways of wearing a jumpsuit that work…
Waist, not waste: I love how the jumpsuit can double as just pants when you tie it at the waist and wear it with a cool t-shirt like Tasya. It also doesn’t hurt to take along a beautiful vintage hat box for extra points.
Keep it loose: What better way to make a simple jumpsuit really sing than by carrying a silver bag and tying a scarf at the neck. Giving a nod to eras past, especially with Djuna’s cat eye sunglasses!
Get shorty: While the shortall may be a bit too adolescent, the short jumpsuit (its cousin and counterpart) is perfect dressed up with large gold hoops and a solid cuff. Jess’ red hair also lends itself to wearing green – even in the summer!
