Now that spring is officially here, I hope you’re all prepared for the warmer weather we’ve been having! If you’re looking for a fabulous piece to transition into the coming months, look no further than a jumpsuit/romper/onesie – call it what you will. I know, I know you may be thinking, “aren’t those for children?” but trust me, they can look incredibly sophisticated if worn correctly! Jumpsuits are perfect pieces in that the can be thrown on and styled with ease like a dress, but at the same time can have the versatility of separates. I think jumpsuits sometimes get a bad rap because so often they are worn incorrectly (i.e. head-to-toe velour anything resembling “clubwear”), but here are a few examples of styles done right:
Generally speaking, dark or neutral colored jumpsuits are going to be the most flattering and serve as an ideal blank canvas for bold accessories. This Theory Shiri Laureate Wool-Blend Jumpsuit is actually elegant enough to be worn in an office setting when paired with a structured blazer and pumps, but transitions perfectly to evening with bold jewelry and a fierce shoe.
In terms of printed one-piece styles, I prefer a romper as opposed to full-length style (wearing a print from head to toe can be fairly overwhelming). Even with the sequin embellishment, this DKNY Sequined Silk-Blend Playsuit can be worn during the daytime – just be sure to pair similar styles with neutral accessories like those pictured here. In cooler months, this option would also look amazing worn with tights and ankle boots!
One of my favorite ways to wear a romper is as a casual cover-up. This Diane Von Furstenberg Rompie Jersey Playsuit travels really well, is easy to throw on over a swimsuit, and looks chic even when you’re not on the beach.
So ladies, dare to wear a one-piece style this year, but keep in mind these tips while shopping and as always, stay fashionable!
