'Mola' Black jumpsuit: c/o Motel Rocks
Clutch: c/o Jean Paul Gaultier for Target
Heels: c/o Spicy Avenue (old)
A long jumpsuit is something I surprisingly have never owned in my wardrobe! I think I just hadn't found a jumpsuit that was flattering enough- it was either unforgivingly tight (like a Catwoman costume!) or loose and sloppy in all the wrong places. When you're wearing just one piece from head to toe, it can be hard to get it right!
I took the plunge and tried out this black jumpsuit from Motel Rocks, and thankfully it was so flattering and easy to wear! The subtle cutouts at the sides are really the magic key to making this jumpsuit work- they cinch your waist in, and the way the jumpsuit falls loosely around your hips provides a recipe for instant curves! :)
Black and White Jumpsuits
Alice McCall black jumpsuit / Black Halo two piece white jumpsuit / Self Portrait lace jumpsuit / Keepsake white jumpsuit / Opening Ceremony black jumpsuit
Now that this piece has piqued my interest again in jumpsuits, I found some other elegant choices in black and white! The first one from Alice McCall is a little daring with a lingerie-inspired bodice and a wide-legged cut for a flattering silhouette. I'm finding this whole Alice McCall collection to be full of lacy, sheer and boudoir goodness!
The second one by Black Halo really caught my eye- you can wear it as a jumpsuit or wear the top and pants separately! Personally I think the all-white look looks incredible and definitely motivates me to tone up my midriff a bit more. There's something so dreamy and ethereal about wide-legged white pants, don't you think? You can check out all the other gorgeous jumpsuits Shopbop has to offer here.
How to take a Jumpsuit from Day to Night
Necklace: Adia Kibur necklace / Veronica Beard Blazer / Sam Edelman lace up Heels / Botkier chain cross body bag
I thought I would also include some ideas/inspiration on how to wear a long black jumpsuit for day and for night. I for one, definitely struggled to figure out how to style my Motel jumpsuit when I first saw it!
The jumpsuit I'm styling the 'day' and 'night' outfits with above is called 'Abner' from Cupcakes and Cashmere, and has a loose, streamlined shape with a comfy elastic waistband and wide legs. Its simple and no-fuss design makes it ideal to wear during the day and looks amazing in a boho-inspired look with an aztec printed bucket bag, comfy wedges, and topped off with a structured straw hat. Keep your shoulders warm and the outfit casual, with a cropped denim jacket in a light wash.
For a night outfit you can go for matching black accessories for a classic look (like I did above), or try complementing the jumpsuit with deep red accessories like these Sam Edelman lace up heels and classic chain bag by Botkier in saffiano leather. Jazz up the simplicity of the jumpsuit with a black jewel necklace for some embellishment, and throw over a sleek and tailored cream or white blazer. I especially love this one by Veronica Beard- the fit is so perfect and would be great for your work wardrobe as well!
