Black Jumpsuit for Summer
This post was supposed to be what I wore for my birthday dinner, but I ended up wearing something else both nights. I always do that, for some reason. I can’t ever seem to plan ahead.
But I still wanted to share it because I think it’s so cute!
Unfortunately the jumpsuit is pretty much sold out, so I linked up some other options at the end of the post.
I actually purchased this months ago, in my local store… so that must have been February or early March because we shut down due to Covid on Friday the 13th of March.
I held onto it, thinking I’d have an occasion to wear it, but so far, no dice. Oh, well. It’s a nice piece to have in the back of my closet for when events start up again.
The tie waist and short dolman sleeves are super flattering, and I love the V-back.
It dips just low enough to make it a little extra special, but not so low that it interferes with your bra.
The wide cropped leg is just enough to be flowy but not too voluminous, and the volume on the bottom helps to offset the wider shoulders, while the tie sash emphasizes the waist.
I did size down to the 4 in this jumpsuit, so if you’re considering ordering one of the sizes that are left, you may want to size down one from your normal LOFT dress size. I would typically wear a 6, but it swallowed me up.
I wore these snake print wedge espadrille sandals. They keep the look light and summery, while also adding some pattern and texture and lending a subtle edgy vibe.
For accessories, I wore an older pair of Stella & Dot chandelier earrings and my David Yurman link bracelet, although I think this Victoria Emerson Manarola boho cuff would also look great with this outfit.
Oh, and I wanted to tell you, I made a mistake in Friday’s post — the boho cuff I was wearing with the pink henley tee is actually the Cairo. For some reason, I thought it was supposed to go the other way, with the beige side facing out.
The nice thing is, you can wear it both ways, so you’re pretty much getting 2 bracelets in one!
Also, the Victoria Emerson BOGO Sale has been extended, so if you didn’t get a chance to shop it, you can still take advantage of their buy one, get one free offer.
I love this look for a date night or summer event. Unfortunately, ours have all been outdoors lately, and it’s so hot, I didn’t feel like I wanted to deal with the jumpsuit factor. Plus, the material on this one isn’t super breathable.
However, a black jumpsuit is a nice wardrobe piece to have. It’s pretty much the 2020 version of a LBD, so I linked up some other options below!
LOFT jumpsuit (see more options below) // wedge sandals // earrings (old) // bracelet // similar clutch
