How to Rock a Jumpsuit


When I was heading into my Junior year of High School I went school shopping with my mom. I had an idea of exactly what I was looking for and stubbornly refused to try anything else. My mom picked out a little black dress that she wanted me to try on. I said no and whined about it, but my mom persisted and I eventually tried it on. Much to my dismay I immediately fell in love with it. My mom still reminds me of this incident and that I need to be more open minded about what I try on because it might not look good on the hanger, but it just might look fabulous on.

I may have taken her advice to the extreme and now try on just about everything, which is how I came across this jumpsuit. I decided that since I was already going into the dressing room with a bunch of other items I may as well give this little number a shot. I immediately felt fierce and powerful, and you guessed it: fell in love with it.

I’m not going to lie, I was slightly intimidated at the thought of styling a jumpsuit, especially since this one is wide legged! I loved styling it though, and wanted to find a middle ground between dressy and casual. A bit of sparkle with heels combined with a pop of color and the utility jacket was the happy medium to creating this look. This jumpsuit has so much versatility in that it can be dressed up or down. I can’t wait to rock it many different ways!
