Does the phrase "a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear" resonate with you? I know I've had my fair share of mornings where nothing in my closet seems to go together. We’ve given you a few fallbacks: peplum top and statement necklace, cropped pants and heels—but what do you do when separates just aren’t working? You could throw on the first thing you see and walk around in a mediocre ensemble all day feeling less than great, or you could give a jumpsuit a try.
Yes, a jumpsuit! I was all for this trend the second it started trickling into the fashion world. It’s an insanely simple way to look perfectly put-together. These modern, trendy jumpsuits can be sleek and sophisticated, playful and flirty, sexy, boho—you name it. With myriad jumpsuits and rompers to choose from, you’ll definitely find one that suits your summer style. Get started with these one-piece options for work, vacation, weekends, and parties.
I doubt there's anyone out there trying to make their morning routine longer, and a jumpsuit is simply another great tool to help you get ready faster! Think about how much less time you’ll spend standing in front of your closet with a decent collection of ruled-out pencil skirts, blouses, and blazers littering your bed. When you’re heading to work, look for a jumpsuit that’s tailored and not too tight. The solid navy version with a high neckline and tapered leg is basic and leaves lots of room for accessorizing. A little collar and tapered pants make even a floral-print jumpsuit office-appropriate. I also love the color-blocked jumpsuit that gives the illusion that you’re wearing a top and pants.
Packing for vacation, no matter where you’re headed, gets difficult. Planning all of your outfits in advance, making sure you have the right shoes, accessories, undergarments—it’s a lot to think about when all you want to do is relax. Pack a romper and you’ll make it a lot easier and your suitcase a little lighter. A loose jumpsuit with a geometric print and plunging neckline will go from the beach all day to the bar at happy hour. Rompers can double as cover-ups or be paired with sandals and a cross-body for tourist-y days.
Easy doesn't have to mean casual. There are plenty of jumpsuits and rompers formal enough for a party or event. Just look at the red carpet lately for proof. Beyonce rocked a chic black and white OSMAN jumpsuit at the Grammy Awards; Sarah Jessica Parker kept it simple in a black Elie Saab jumpsuit at the BAFTAs; Rosie Huntington Whitely wore one to an Oscar event, Jennifer Lawrence wore one to a film festival, the list goes on. A romper or jumpsuit with a little more structured, tailored fit can be a fun alternative to a cocktail dress. Try a little black romper instead of your LBD (the accessory options are just as limitless) or an embellished romper with a cutout back. I also love the orange jumpsuit for a swanky party or fancy dinner with a pair of statement pumps!
Lazy weekend, busy weekend, weekend away, weekend home—I can’t guess what your plans are, but I can guess what they’re not: trying on seven outfits until you find one that works. It’s easy to fall into a jeans-and-tee habit on weekends, but a cute romper or jumpsuit is a step up style-wise and equally as effortless. Printed jumpsuits and rompers with simple shapes are cool and casual options for farmer’s markets, movie dates, or brunch. A loose, comfortable jumpsuit or wrap-style romper with flat sandals, a straw hat, and sunnies can be your new go-to weekend outfit.
