How to Wear a Jumpsuit

jumpsuits, cool jumpsuits, look like a kardashian

I’ve been a little obsessed with jumpsuits lately. When I got to the chance to work with eBates on an upcoming project and was sent shopping, this item was on the top of my list. Why? Well the chic one-piece style has totally grown on me.

A recent fashion assignment led me to this outfit and this outdoor shoot. We are out of the city most of the summer as our apartment gets renovated. That means humid hair, simple fashion and barely any makeup. Evidence? This photo shoot. The slick pony is my go-to evening look. The jumpsuit fits in perfectly.

Since eBates has 1,600+ of the world’s top online stores to pick from, I decided to head to Nordstorm. I’m not a coupon shopper but I do love a deal. eBates works for me because I simply have to log in to get cash back. And they have a lot of my favorite sites signed on. All I had to do was shop a favorite store (Nordstrom) for early fall fashion.

Here’s how it works: Sign up for eBates, shop and then get a “Big Fat Checks” aka a cash reward for shopping. Nordstrom offers 5% back. A big incentive for me to hunt down a chic transitional outfit.

I started with the Three Dots Strapless Jersey Jumpsuit ($168). Then added the 8 Other Reasons ‘One Shot Only’ Spike Necklace ($65) and Cara Beaded Stretch Belt ($28).

As a transitional wardrobe item, I think the jumpsuit is perfect. Right now I can wear it with wedges for a pool party, and in the fall I will layer on a blazer. I also was on the hunt for accessories that could work for now and fall. The belt and necklace are boho chic items that I will pair with denim and a white tee as I leave behind my summer dresses.

As for the wedge heels…well you know I love my shoes and this pair was a fabulous price and will be making my feet happy until the crisp weather arrives. They are Franco Sarto ‘Xenon’ Wedge Sandal ($69.90)

But the best news of all is that I will get a check in the mail from eBates for 5% of this total purchase.

Your turn to weigh in. What do you think of the jumpsuit? I also hope you’ll share what you’ve been wearing on Monday Mingle. Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls.

    I am loving jumpsuits right now too. In romper form though I guess because they’re short. I just snagged a royal blue one from LuLus that I LOVE! Your belt is perfect here!

    love how you styled this… think the belt is key and the necklace is such a fun addition!

  • I love jumpsuits, but for some reason I couldn’t find the one (in my budget) that falls perfectly onmy body – it usually is short! You look so good in this one – the second picture looks like a runway photo:-) Hope you are having a wonderful day!

      It’s a good note about the length. They look silly cropped–You are so tall I could see how finding the right fit is a challenge.

    • momtrends

      Thanks Jill! I could see you in this!

  • Oh to Be a Muse

    You definitely have the body for this jumpsuit. I feel like you can’t be too short to wear something like this because when you’re tall, the jumpsuit really accentuates your legs. And I am in love with your necklace.
