I’ve read a lot of magazine articles on how to wear a jumpsuit correctly. Jumpsuits are bloody hard to pull off you know – you only meant to wear them with heels apparently (honestly, I read that!), with a blazer and a chunky belt. Hell no. None of the articles gave me what I wanted to hear. I wanted the simplicity of a blogger’s outfit. Yes, I wanted to hear that I can wear a fancy jumpsuit with a pair of white trainers and a cross body camera bag. Thank you blogger world, you are the best!
The ultimate jumpsuit
I find it ever so difficult to find a good fitting jumpsuit (half of the blame lies on my short legs but still). The one I’m wearing above is, believe it or not, from Primark – the fit’s fantastic but the material is a bit pants – it’s really thin so unless it’s a warm sunny day outside (yet it must not be more than 23 degrees because then you start sweating like a beast) it’s rather difficult to leave the house in it. I came across this beautiful black longline jumpsuit on the Coast website (click here) – it’s cinched at the waist which gives an incredibly flattering figure & the back is actually tie up so you can play about with it and create different shapes & patterns. How gorgeous, man! And I bet you won’t feel a breeze in it either!
The blogger bag
Now to style up such a gorgeous (and traditionally an evening) piece you need a bag that’s more on the casual side of things. A cross body will do. I must have been sleeping under a rock but who knew there’s a YSL Blogger bag (see here)??! It won’t even remotely fit in everything you need but hey – a lipstick & an eyeliner is all a girl can live off for the day, right?
The simple accessories
Keeping the accessories simple means you’re less likely to stray from the casual sporty style. About 90% of the time I pick silver over gold – just because I feel like it is A) more casual and B) suits my skin tone better. Even if you’re to pick gold then I do recommend that you stick with overly simple shapes – a pair of dainty hoops, a classic watch and perhaps a little pendant for good luck. You can find all these on the F.Hinds website (click here) – including the most gorgeous St Christopher pendant I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
The cover up
A blogger would most likely wear a leather jacket from Zara (because those are apparently the leather jackets to live for) but I’m more of a baggy duster coat kinda girl so I’d wear this pinky duster from Coast (click here). It looks so so comfy – it’s asking for the sleeves to be rolled up and to be thrown on over the jumpsuit!
The Stan Smiths
The ultimate pair of white trainers that I’ve been coveting for a good few months – I may have or may have not ordered a pair online as we speak. Just saying.
