Getting through the cold winter blues means one thing for many fashionistas and that is looking ahead to warmer weather. No better time like the present to begin pondering on what is ‘trending’ for spring/summer 2015. Today we are going to talk a bit about a hot trend in fashion and that is the jumpsuit. The runway was full of an array of jumpsuit styles from casual chic to sophisticated. Some of the biggest names in fashion like Elie Saab, Escada, Stella McCartney and Pamella Roland gave us some incredible options to take note of in their shows. If you recall from our last post the Golden Globes best dressed, Emma Post made heads turn in her elegant Lanvin jumpsuit and was a fashion fan favorite.
Now let’s be honest at first jumpsuits may not seem like a perfect fit for everyone. I will be the first to admit that if you are not tall and lean it may not seem like a feasible task. However, after doing the legwork, research and purchasing my first jumpsuit I have found there are more options than in years past. Considering the cut, fabric and volume of the jumpsuit are some key components. Do you prefer a tapered or flared leg? Sleevless, cap or long sleeve? Once you find a jumpsuit that suits your body type the next important thing is finding a tailor to make the right adjustments, if necessary. Make that your canvas and now you can begin styling your jumpsuit with the right accessory (we say go for the gold). Dresses are always fabulous but what better way to switch up your style than with the right pantsuit that makes a statement. OK! Now get ready, scroll below and you will find some jumpsuits from the spring runways, how celebs are wearing them today and different style options to consider (the last look is one that I personally own – Laundry by Shelli Segal). So we ask our One Style at a Time readers how do you feel about the jumpsuit trend? Is this a yay or nay in your fashion book?
Come back next Monday as we bring you more style and trends alerts you won’t want to miss. Hope you are enjoying the new blog design fashion dolls.
