Happy Thursday, friends! I’m stepping a bit outside of my comfort zone today and styling a wide-legged jumpsuit.
I always try to have a variety of styles and trends when I do these summer style challenges, and jumpsuits are having a moment right now so I thought at least one deserved a spot in this series.
There’s a bit of a back-story to this post. For some reason I ordered this jumpsuit in a medium, rather than my usual small.
The fit was a little off, but I thought it worked… until I got my pictures back. I had this post almost entirely written when realized, this jumpsuit is simply too big! So I tabled the post, and re-ordered it in a small.
Long story short, the small fits sooo much better!
We took more pictures wearing the small, and I’m sharing both sets of pictures today. You’ll easily be able to tell the difference because when I shot the second set of pictures, I added two necklaces.
The material of this jumpsuit is lovely — soft and drapey — and I love the tie waist and that it’s fully lined on top. It’s also priced right under $100, which is very reasonable for a special event outfit. It also comes in black.
I appreciate the faux wrap styling, and it offers plenty of coverage for my full bust, but it could use a small snap to hold it place. That’s an inexpensive alteration I plan to have made asap.
I styled this jumpsuit for a special event… perhaps a wedding or other fancy summer occasion, so I wore these gold beaded tassel earrings to glam up the look.
And one of my Victoria Emerson boho cuffs adds even more bling, plus I love how these bracelets take the guesswork out of creating a layered look.
I’ve had these Sam Edelman Yaro sandals in the glam mesh jute for several years, and they’re my go-to for fancy events.
The glittery mesh material is the perfect complement to this smooth jersey fabric and helps keep the look more formal.
I love how the champagne-colored envelope clutch works with the shoes. I’ve had both for several years, and they come in handy over and over again — usually with my dressier looks.
Both the shoes and bag are quality pieces that are subtly elegant and classic that go with so much — either together or separately.
In fact, that would make a good post sometime — tried and true accessories I wear over and over again that complement so many different looks. If you’d like a post like that, let me know!
