Don’t Jump for Jumpsuits

If you remember the late 80’s and early 90’s you probably remember wearing a jumpsuit or two. If you’re not old enough to remember that, rest assured your parents dressed you in jumpsuits or “onesies” when you were younger. So the jumpsuit has been around for a while and is starting to make a comeback this season.

My advice on the jumpsuit, unless you have a model perfect body or the jumpsuit is designed specifically for your shape, stay far away from them. Jumpsuits are rarely flattering with leg lengths that don’t fit your frame, a blousy waist that makes you look chunky or a too think waist line that shows your flaws, a breast line that is equally disproportionate to your frame, and let’s not even talk about the nightmare it creates out of your butt.

But there is a way to fake a jumpsuit look and keep your body in clothing that fits, look for matching separates. Some companies make separates that are designed to match, Ann Taylor and Talbots are great places to begin that search. But you don’t even have to go that far, simply select a pair of pants and a top made of the same color and type of fabric. This may take a little doing, but if you stick to a neutral color and a standard fabric it’s definitely not impossible. Then add this season’s hot accessory, an oversized belt to cover the seam between shirt and pants and voila, it looks like a jumpsuit but you’ve got two separates that fit and flatter your form.
