An ultra chic alternative to a maxi dress, the jumpsuit, whether form fitting or loose—when paired with the right accessories is perfect for summer days or nights. Reminiscent of the disco era, the jumpsuit is more modern (thank God because I doubt most of us can pull of bell bottoms)—sleeker and more polished. Although the jumpsuit is minimal wear, it still makes a splash in bold colors and playful prints. Great for any shape or size, the jumpsuit flatters the desired areas while camouflaging the areas that aren’t.
Tips: For a day look, pair your favorite jumpsuit with a gold cuff, over-size sunglasses and strappy sandal. While for a night look, go bolder with a dazzling sequins print, t-strap heels and a bright clutch.
