Dressing Down the Jumpsuit

Photobucket
This jumpsuit I have presented on here before, in the blog's early days, so I have had it for a little while although I haven't worn it for a long time. In truth, it has laid unironed in the bottom of the basket for longer than I wish to admit.

But I got to thinking that I love the jumpsuit as an item of clothing and in fact would like to own more, as I think it can be a very versatile garment. I have only ever worn this as an evening piece but was keen to get more wear out of it so started to look at other ways it could be worn as a daytime outfit.

I did end up changing nearly everything before I went out - the coat, the shoes and a different colour bodysuit. Everything apart from the jumpsuit itself. I will show you that look too one day.

  1. Hey :)

    I kid you NOT, you are such the Alexander McQueen model - meaning; you wear your clothes with such confident persona that gives the outfit a different "shine" to it. Me and jumpsuits have never really been friends..especially not with heels ha. But you wear the look very well.

    Have a fab day :0)

  5. You look utterly fabulous - I adore the mix of black and cream. Jump suits have never really been on my radar (I always assume they will be unflattering) but this is just wonderful. You've inspired me to give them a go!

    You're really beautiful!

    Do you live in a flat or a house?
    My dream is to live in a cottage, in england.
    Even more since I saw "The Holiday" and "Sense & Sensibility" :)

  8. Pity that you do not read Portuguese. In my blog I usually strip my soul.

    Querida, existem algum endereço neutro que você possa me enviar? Obviamente, não peço o endereço de sua casa, mas algum de alguma loja que te conheçam para que eu te envie um presentinho do Brasil? Coisa simples mesmo, mas será de coração. E nào estranhe, nós, brasileiros, somos assim mesmo. Um beijo,

  10. I really like this look - before now I didn't really think you *could* dress down a jumpsuit but you have proved me wrong! Tey always seemed such a statement pice, but it's cool to see one worn for everyday wear as well.
