This post was necessary since the day I started my blog. Without debate, my absolute favorite article of clothing is a jumpsuit. A jumpsuit is one piece, from top to bottom usually with a uniform print. Long sleeved jumpsuits are my favorite because it is the easiest way to look put together. It would be a no brainer outfit because the outfit is already complete. I have a bunch of long sleeved jumpsuits, and I wear them any chance I get.
With jumpsuits, accessorizing is key, because the accessories would be the differentiating factor. This is why it can be worn classy or casual with jewelry/heels to dress it up and flats to dress it down. I bought this jumpsuit months ago and I’ve worn it a few times but never got a chance to make a post. This camouflage print is perfect for fall but since it is an artisitic camo print and due to the mustard yellow, it can be worn any season.
Buying a jumpsuit can be difficult. It has to fit you well and sometimes you have to purchase one size larger because it’s just one piece and there has to be enough room to allow you to easily move. There are mainly 2 different styles to a jumpsuit. My particular favorite style is when the entire top is loose with slightly dolman shaped arms with a belt to bring in the waist. The pants should be loose on the hips and thighs but taper down to a small leg opening. It gives for a great overall shape and I feel it is still modest. If you get the right size, it is actually slimming. The excess fabric makes you look smaller and the waist can be tightened or loosened to your likening.
The other jumpsuit style would be fitting on the arms and chest/waist with pants that are fitted on the upper hips and then go straight down like palazzo pants and are usually wide. I feel like this style does not flatter my body. This style of jumpsuit is usually more dressy. I’ve seen this style in a structured material which is a great office look to evening and I’ve also seen it in a clingy material like spandex and that looks like it’s from the disco era. Ha.

I bought a floral printed jumpsuit from Zara a few months ago and even though it is short sleeved it has this same shape like this camo print jumpsuit. With, my short sleeved jumpsuits, I pair them with a blazer or wear connecting sleeves or a top underneath.
I wore this same jumpsuit with a turban hijab and heels to a DIY turban night blogger event a few months back. Which look do you prefer? I prefer look one, because heels are uncomfortable for me! Thanks for reading. Xoxo
