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 🙂

Sunny Monday

Yesterday was such a crazy weather day — 81 degrees in December!  No need for a sweater or jacket, it was pure bliss.  Christmas is right around the corner, hope you are all getting your shopping done!  This comfy outfit got me through the day, with easy-to-slip-on-and-off Rag & Bone Harrow booties, and my new favorite Chanel aviators (last seen here).  And of course, some plaid, since it’s everywhere right now!

Happy Holidays!
