Ahh..the jumpsuit. Your comfortable and quirky friend that never fails to snatch a second look. You would assume that after their time in the spotlight in the 70’s that even males with a lack of knowledge in the fashion arena would be accustomed to the pants-and-top-in-one combination, however it still manages to stun and confuse people like my dear, unschooled boyfriend. It made an impressive comeback in 2015 and featured on many a red carpet and catwalk, with the style being preferred over the traditional dress for some.
Why do I love jumpsuits? Simply because they’re comfy and cute. For some people, wearing a jumpsuit may be perceived as risk, but there are so many varying designs out there that it is worth hunting around for a style that suits you. I found this one from Gingham & Heels at an absolute steal and knew that I needed to covet this piece of fabulousness. It resonates a 70’s disco/Florence Welch vibe, and you know that when you find something that magnificently fulfils that description that it must become yours. It does tend to gape around the cleavage area, and although I am typically a liberal person, I did think that it would be vastly more appropriate if I teamed it with a simple boob-tube. A white one would have been preferred in order to highlight the white pattern, but as I was strapped for time I made do with a black one.
