Jumpsuits are a fun item to shop for. They are great for any season, any day of the year. The following is a guide to shopping for jumpsuits.
Jumpsuits have come a long way. Some not only pass as evening-appropriate wear, but go so far as to surpass black tie events. These styles are available from major fashion brands such as Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, Halston Heritage and Carmen Marc Valvo.
The Sheer-Sleeve Tuxedo Jumpsuit by Yves Saint Laurent comes in black tuxedo suiting in light wool fabric construction with a notched collar, plunge V-neckline, sheer bishop long sleeves that cuff in opaque barrel style with a high and defined waist. The pant legs are creased and fall down straight from hip to hem then crop at the ankles. This beautiful jumpsuit is appropriate for business meetings as well as evenings out.
Wear the Plunging-V Sequined Jumpsuit by Stella McCartney to your next gallery exhibition, made from black silk chiffon with scattered sequin detailing throughout, a plunge V-neckline, ruched shoulders with a bit of structuring, semi-sheer long sleeves, wide pant legs, natural waist and hidden back zip. Platform heels are a must with this outfit. Be sure to tie your hair back and apply some bold lip shade. You’ll be the talk of the evening.
For something sexy and effortless, go with the Jersey Halter Jumpsuit by the Halston Heritage. This 70s inspired outfit comes with draped polyester and spandex fabric blend, plunge halter neckline, tie waist and wide pant legs. This is evening appropriate attire that goes nicely with some peep toe heel shoes. Let your hair down for a more casual appearance, or stylize up into a bun for a sharp, sophisticated look.
This is good enough to pass for a black tie dress. The Belted Plisse Jumpsuit by Carmen Marc Valvo comes in polyester construction with black plisse detailing throughout the wide pant legs for a fluid feel, a plunge V-neckline and halter straps, bead embroidery around the banded waist and back zip.
Some sportier jumpsuit items are available by Donna Karan, Stella McCartney and Halston.
The Parachute Jumpsuit by Donna Karan comes in shadow-dust green jersey construction of viscose, rayon and spandex fabric blend with a spread drawstring collar, front zip, tonal topstitching, back yoke and side hip pockets. Wear this to your next adventurous day trip out, and be sure to match it with some combat boots and parka.
The Studded Racerback Jumpsuit by Stella McCartney comes in lightweight black wool construction with gradient crystal stud detailing across the bodice, scoop neckline and racerback in a sleeveless style. The dropped waist includes a drawstring and on-seam pockets are stitched at the hip. The relaxed silhouette of the legs taper down until they crop at the ankles. Wear this to your yoga or Pilates class.
If you’re in need of something day appropriate in a one-piece style, go with the Long-Sleeve Jumpsuit by Halston, with its Bemburg cupro/Tencel construction in metallic gray fabric, V-neckline, pleated shoulders with a bit of structuring, long sleeves, self-tie waist and slouch legs for a relaxed pant silhouette.
