Perfect Jumpsuit: Style Guide

The Perfect Jumpsuit

Paris And The Perfect Jumpsuit.

I don’t know if it’s Paris itself, or my own obsession with the city and  shows featured at Paris Fashion Week, nonetheless, we’re smack in the middle of it.  I’ve enjoyed watching my fair share of runway presentations.  My favorite part of the experience is cherry picking which niche-trend patterns featured, will eventually find their way into my wardrobe . Ta-da!  From there, I’ll commit to a few staple pieces for the season. Season after season, that’s how it  pretty much works for me.

A myriad of trends from Paris Fashion Week has my heart fluttering,  some standouts being military jackets, ruffles, more denim, jewel-toned velvet and one of my faves; the perfect jumpsuit! However, this season everything from the direction of denim, to embroidered military jackets and ruffles have a refreshed and modern feel.  For the perfect jumpsuit, several designers showed them with a futuristic appeal: really fitted and more sporty  than the ones we’ve seen before. When paired for the right event, and with a hint of accessories, I can certainly see the look all over street style trends.

Long Lives The Perfect Jumpsuit.

I’m ecstatic the perfect jumpsuit made the cut for yet another season. I kept my fingers crossed and the fashion fairy has granted my wish.  A nice jumpsuit lends an effortless route to up-to-the-minute chic , whether you’re heading to a fundraiser dinner, a sporting event, or taking in a concert of your favorite artist.  Exploring my own style growing up, there wasn’t a paisley or floral jumper (or romper alike) that I didn’t adore. The effortless nature and flattering fit made them a convenient asset to my untamed hair and on the go nature. Fast forward to adult life, I coped my first jumper in 2011. Five years later, the perfect jumpsuit has surpassed the little black dress as my go-to attire of choice.  And, no doubt, I’m in phenomenal fashion company as Solange Knowles, said ‘I Do’ to her beau, Alan Ferguson in a cream Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit in 2014; to Rihanna, who perfectly rocks anything from sexy, Balmain cut-out pieces, to Armani Exchange and Frame denim overalls; to Zoe Saldana who has made the jumpsuit style a wardrobe staple. Truth be told, one of my favorite jumpsuits remain the beautiful, white,  sheer long-sleeve, with the chiffon bodice from Elie Saab worn by Zoe at the premiere of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ a few years back.

Who Makes Your Perfect Jumpsuit

Beyond Paris Fashion Week, The Emmy Awards Red Carpet and the 2016 film festivals, the one-piece stunner will keep your personal style winning. In fabulous day-to- night options, and a diverse variety of styles and colors, a perfect little jumpsuit can gift your wardrobe with a swanky pick- me- up . If you’re crushing on the flattering, single pieces as much as I do, there are no shortage of cuts, fabrics and lengths to join you in some fun this fall. Don’t be shy, the next time you’re craving something new, try a  jumpsuit that flatter your own figure, and make you feel fabulous!
