The Black Jumpsuit

December 20, 2017

‘Tis the season to wear all black!

I had the idea to do a series of Holiday looks that you could potentially wear again. And not like how a bride always claims a bridesmaid could rock the frock again (truthfully, we rarely do), but a genuinely wearable piece that could carry you through the season.  This styling series made me realize that jazzing things up with statement pieces makes it so much easier to create a Holiday edge without being a literal disco ball.  I was able to “shop” a lot of pieces from my own closet and to find embellished new additions that wouldn’t seem out of place past January 1st.

First on the agenda, is the simple, but awesome, jumpsuit.

The black jumpsuit is such a closet staple that I have three of them, and one romper version for summertime.  They are a no-brainer and so flattering.  This wrap jumpsuit from UK based eco fashion brand COSSAC is so comfortable it’s almost like wearing onesie pyjamas.  Except that the fit is also incredibly curve hugging, in all the right ways, to create a stunning silhouette.  It looks nice in photos, but it’s even more striking in person!  If you’re curious, it does fit true to size, and I’m wearing a Large.

When I went to style it for Holiday, I needed the right statement earrings and these Rachel Comey ‘Arc’ beauties were absolutely the way to go.  Shopbop is currently sold out, BUT hopefully they’re restocked soon!  Actually, in the meantime, these Madewell Sculpture Earrings have a similar look. Putting my hair in a low bun really made the jumpsuit + earrings shine and I seriously cannot say how comfortable this look is!  Perfect for all those Christmas feasts.  No need to loosen a belt loop when you’re in head-to-toe Tencel!

How do you like to style your black jumpsuit?
