Once upon a time I thought jumpsuits were VERY weird. The year was 2013, actually. One-piece anything was on the no fly list of my closet. I don’t truly know what or when my mind change, but those that know me, know I cannot get enough of this trend! In fact, I wore not one, not two, but THREE jumpsuits on the day of our wedding. So, I guess you can say I’ve fully converted.
Things you shouldn’t do in a dress, but can easily do in a jumpsuit: high kick, bend down, jump up-and-down celebrating a touchdown, reach the top shelf at home goods without worrying about your butt hanging out, the bend and snap, running after your cart as it rolls away in the parking lot, chase after a small child, go several days without shaving your legs… need I say more? The benefits are endless.
I’ve been searching for the perfect long-sleeved, casual black jumpsuit for YEARS (not an overstatement). Finally, I had enough and I looked in one of the last places, but the most obvious – Amazon Fashion! I spent a bit of time searching and scrolling and I stumbled upon THE ONE.
Now, let’s say this jumpsuit comes in a soft fabric, is less than $30 and has POCKETS. Are you sold yet? I sure as heck was. Want to buy it and have it in two days? Here’s the exact one on Amazon! Once you get it, you’ll be amazed at the amount of black jumpsuit outfit combinations you can make with this new closet staple.
Date Night Outfit
This is the best representation of what the actual jumpsuit looks like. It has a scoop neck with elastic waistband and tapered legs. I used to only go for wide leg jumpsuits, but the jogger style is a great option for any shoe choice. For the first look, I was thinking about all those times that I pack my gym bag the night before and then forget to think about what I’m going to wear there and after. Enter: the one-piece wonder!
I’m not quite ready for the off-the-shoulder style to go away anytime soon so I LOVE that I can arrange the neckline this way. A jumpsuit, especially a long sleeved jumpsuit is a LOT of fabric. Shifting the fabric to show off a little more skin romances it up for a date night outfit and blows up the range of occasions you can wear this to. How many other clothing items do you have that can genuinely go from sneakers to heels in a snap?
Casual Jumpsuit Outfit
This version allows you to wear a jumpsuit and cardigan in a stylish way that doesn’t overtake your figure. Because the jumpsuit itself has a cinched waist, the sweater just prevents it from being monochromatic and still looks nice and cozy as we head into the fall season. Remember, your jumpsuit doesn’t have to be the whole outfit, you can mix and match style pieces to help wear it more often!
Jumpsuit For Work
Can you wear a jumpsuit for work? I wasn’t so sure until I put this little number together. Just like I played around with the neckline on the date night outfit, I skewed this one to be slightly asymmetrical so it didn’t feel like a t-shirt. Then, I paired it with a sleek low bun, my favorite black heels and a clutch (you could use your favorite tote bag, too) and felt like a total boss.
Are you convinced yet?
I know, I know, you’ve heard me say it before, but this really is a wardrobe MUST have. Think about all the times you had no idea what to wear. At least 30% of the time lately that I’ve had that thought, I’ve reached for this jumpsuit. Imagine having THAT much time back in your day/week/month when you knew you would look fantastic just by putting on this one item.
