Plaid jumpsuit apparatus

I’m not gonna lie, I loooooove rompers and jumpsuits.  They’re like adult onesies.  You can enjoy wearing pants without having to agonize over what top to pair with them.  It’s all decided for you.  Brilliant.  But — and this is a huge caveat — you have to make sure they fit you PROPERLY.  Critical.  Non-negotiable.  Otherwise they actually look like a baby onesie.  Not a good look.  Except for babies.

Usually it’s a torso-proportion issue.  Too long, or too short.  Maybe you need a high-neck, flowy, wide-leg style to lengthen, or you might look better in a cute cropped trendy style with spaghetti straps.  Try various options to see what works.  And when you find a romper or jumpsuit that fits like a glove, you must go with it.  Embrace it.  Rock it.  Own it.

Such is the case with this jumpsuit from Zara.  Black watch plaid, sheer top, perfectly bloused out, slim pencil leg, expertly tailored.  Perfect!  All for the bargain price of $39.99 on sale!  Add some studded stilettos (last seen here & here), and you have a very simple chic look, no accessories required.  Let the statement piece speak for itself.

Maybe this inspires you to try on a jumpsuit next time you see one in the store?  I hope so 🙂
