the jumpsuit

It's warm and sunny! We've been showered out, and the sun is shining. The best thing about warm weather is how you can dress for it! Today I'm talking about a major spring trend that has made its way into the fashion world :: The Jumpsuit/Jumper; an easy & effortless yet chic look that can be transitioned from day into night, dressed up and dressed down.

Here are a couple tips to go buy when looking for a jumper ::

1) If you have a curvier figure, you may want to try a wider leg. A tapered or tracksuit type leg will typically accentuate your hip and thigh area. This is not a rule, just a suggestion!

2) If you are tall and skinny, not only do I hate you {just kidding!...kind of} but you can wear virtually any jumper style. Try a tapered, skinny leg or wide-leg.

3) You can never go wrong with black. It's slimming, classic and timeless.

4) A sweetheart top / halter top is universally-flattering. If you are having trouble finding a top style that works on you, try one of these.

5) Look for a jumpsuit that accentuates your waist; whether it ties, belts, or has an elastic waist-band. This is the most flattering cut on any figure.

A few of my favorites ::

I love throwing on a jumpsuit or romper when I'm not in the mood to overthink my outfit choice. It allows you to look polished, stylish and chic without having to think about both a top AND bottom. So try one this summer; I promise that if you find the right one, you'll be hooked!

Stylishly Yours,
