Fashion Friday: Jumpsuits

If you spent your autumn last year stalking the runways at Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Week, then you already know that what is old is now new again. Designers opted to bring back the 1970’s with bohemian looks and disco-ball inspired metallics. As much as I love a good throwback, the one trend that got my attention was the jumpsuit.

Being a mini-woman, my greatest fashion aspiration is to be able to wear a jumpsuit without looking like an oompa loompa. Jumpsuits are intrinsically and effortlessly chic, and are the lazy fashionista’s dream; it’s an all in one outfit that you can style a million ways with different accessories. All you need is a statement necklace, thick belt, or colorful blazer to take this look to the next level.

Thanks to Dior, Pucci, Chloé, and Céline showing this trend at Fashion Week, I’ve noticed that jumpsuits are the new go-to for nights out on the town and dressy lunches alike, showing how verstile a garment it really is. I was at a formal a few months ago and one of my friends ditched the normal gown for a sexy black jumpsuit and sky high heels- and she totally rocked it. A few weeks after that, my roommate wore the same jumpsuit with a blush blazer and amazing single band, high heeled sandals to lunch with her boyfriend’s parents.

If you obey any of this Summer’s trends, jumpsuits are the way to go. Linked below are some of my favorite jumpsuits to add to your collection on a college girl budget.
