I recently bought a slouchy chambray jumpsuit and I have been living in it ever since. Its lightweight fabric makes it perfect for summer and I’m convinced it’s not just for lazy days — it can be dressed up for a hot date and styled to be appropriate for work. To show just how versatile this piece can be — and why you should add one to your wardrobe — here are three ways to a chambray jumpsuit.
Maybe it seems a little odd that Diane Kruger chose to top her chic black jumpsuit and funny polka-dot pumps with an oversized, sherpa-lined denim jacket that looks like it was stolen from her dad’s closet. But it’s unexpected and that’s what I like about it. (Her Flock of Seagulls hair situation is another matter entirely, but I digress.) Still not sure? Try a more fitted denim jacket for a streamlined, feminine shape. Get the full look after the jump! Keep reading »
Holiday party season has arrived! While I love a fun, short, fancy dress, allow me to suggest going a different route this year. Consider THE JUMPSUIT. No longer for those still wearing diapers, the onesie is a totally party-appropriate alternative to your standard cocktail dress or mini skirt, minus the risk of flashing your panties. And don’t ignore short, romper-style jumpsuits either — just throw on a pair of tight underneath and you’re good to go. Here are 20 reasons to consider the jumpsuit this holiday season…
The outfit in the photo above appears to consist of a shirt and jeans, but, in actuality, it’s Levi’s Double Denim Onesie. This one-piece has a chambray shirt attached to a pair of straight-fit jeans and takes all the guesswork out of getting dressed … for at least one day a week. But wouldn’t it be much easier to get dressed if you simply owned a chambray shirt, which could go with skirts and other pants, and a pair of perfectly fitting jeans, which you could wear with other tops? Not to mention there are much cheaper ways to get the denim-on-denim look of this onesie that costs $194. I love one-pieces and jumpsuits as much as the next person, but the point of those garments is to look like one piece, not the lazy person’s uniform. Would you wear Levi’s denim onesie?

We just love jumpsuits, and since we bought three last summer we’re happy they’re still in style this year. This one from Madewell is perfect for us because we can show a lot of leg, but the girls remain covered. Plus the dark indigo shade gives it a cool ’70s vibe. [$150, Madewell @ ShopBop] Keep reading »
