Jumpsuits are still very popular, but they can be a tricky item to wear, especially if you don’t want to look like the man who has called round to fix the boiler!!
My first jumpsuit, way back when, was given to me by my brother when I was around seventeen. Returning from his travels, he brought me an American khaki military jumpsuit.
Around this time, I had seen “Sting” wearing one in the “The Police” video for the song, “Roxanne”, and although I wasn’t copying him in particular, I loved the look of it and thought how cool he looked.
I felt very stylish wearing it – enhanced by the fact that no one else in my circle had one, at that time. And I remember how comfortable it was.
I found this similar vintage jumpsuit from Etsy on the internet to show you what it looked like (above pic).
Knowing your style often involves the introduction of updated versions of old favourites. There’s nothing wrong with being nostalgic! Especially, going for similar versions of clothes you know you suit and feel really good in.
Over the years, I have owned a few jumpsuits. The attraction for me is the versatility and comfort of wear. The easiness of this item balances any bathroom and bare shoulders issues that I know puts a lot of people off wearing one. It can be a very flattering garment.
This season, the jumpsuit is a welcome addition to my wardrobe as it can be the perfect combo of dressy and casual. Most women’s jumpsuits are designed to flatter and frame your figure. I must admit I was spoilt for choice when looking, and found two that I liked and fit me well. I know the body length can be a problem with jumpsuits – I always have a try on, then stretch and bend to check this isn’t a problem and that the body length is accurate and comfortable.
The jumpsuit is an old favourite that fits with my personal style, while also giving my wardrobe a gentle update!! Like other items I have worn in the past, the jumpsuit just needed a slight tweak – hence, an instant, winning combination.
