This week my Night Styler is centered around a clothing trend I will admit I was a bit baffled with in the beginning, but has slowly and steadily grown on me: the pant jumpsuit.
We’ve seen this throwback to the 80s’ cousin, the romper, all over the place for a couple of years and I will admit that I have a purely love/love relationship with those cute little guys. But this season designers really took it back by featuring flowy pantsuits we haven’t seen since ’88. Admittedly, this isn’t a look that everyone can pull of (heck, I’m not even sure I can pull it off, but God knows I’m gonna try), but it might not be as difficult as you suspect with the right shoes and accessories.
This jumpsuit from Express has the look down. It’s flowy and loose-fitting, but still maintains a sexy quality that’s sure to get looks. Bonus: it comes in four colors, including this season’s it color – hot pink. (Note: hot pink is hard to pull off on its own and attempting to do so in the form of a jumpsuit is not for the weak.) Bonus #2: It saves you time choosing pants and a shirt, as it’s already done for you.
The beauty of the jumpsuit is that it’s easy. It’s one piece that only needs a bit of punching up with some fun accessories. Big, costume-y jewelry is the way to go here; bangles add a fun, funky bohemian touch, while big, bold earrings add more flavor to the mix. Since the jumpsuit is really basic, you can go wild with mix ‘n match bracelets and really oversized, bold pieces.
When it comes to shoes, a pair of strappy heels will look hot, hot, hot, or if you’re going for something more comfortable (or want to make this a daytime look), go with a sassy pair of gladiators. Both work perfectly with the boho-chic look of the jumpsuit and really prove what a versatile piece this is!
If the jumpsuit isn’t your thing (trust me, I get it), you can still take something from this look. Just have fun with your wardrobe this season and don’t be afraid to take some risks and try things you might not have thought of. Chances are you’ll be pleasantly surprised and come up with some new and updated looks.
