OPINION: The Jumpsuit

Image from www.gofugyourself.com

For years I have been vehemently opposed to jumpsuits and the blame for this falls mostly on Alicia Keys' shoulders, or, should I say, camel toe... A few years back Ms. Keys consistently wore the one piece, and the sight of her thighs and crotch tightly showcased in jersey was enough to turn me off jumpers for good. Or so I thought...


However, the new crop of jumpers and playsuits are much more flattering and sweet. They are loose and casual and look hot with strappy sandals or ankle twisting high heels. One of my biggest shopping regrets has been that I left the most perfect Jeremy Laing jumper at Last Call this past fall. I was saving my money for a black bomber and when that didn't happen, I went back but it was gone. Still breaks my heart a little...

Verdict? I want one... now. The jumper can be a little hard to wear on some body types but if one stays away from accentuating anatomy that should not be accentuated, all will be OK.

I love it! I love the new jumpers....Unfortunately I can't wear them because I will look like Ms. Keys...

I think you could pull it off since you're tall and skinny. For us shorties, it wouldn't work.
