The Return of the Jumpsuit



Talk of jumpsuits takes me back to the 80's when we wore jumpsuits made in shiny fabrics with super tapered ankles, shoulder pads and patent leather belts. It sounds cringe worthy, I know, but when the band Devo wore metallic jumpsuits meant to be playfully silly in their 80's music videos, they ironically became pretty cool. Well, at least in my eyes.



Wearing: Loft Chambray Jumpsuit  // Loft Tassel Scarf // BCBG Wedge Sandals, TJ Maxx, options // Kate Spade Tote, old, also love this one and this one  // Alex and Ani Bracelets 

The jumpsuit today has come a long way with more jump than suit.  The one piece wonder also sold in a short version as a romper, has become a workhorse in my closet. It is effortlessly cool.

Here are some more lovely jumpsuits to inspire you to get your own:




I leave you with a tribute to the 80's with Devo's "Whip it" video. Oh, you will want to get on that jumpsuit trend, trust me.


Thank you so much for stopping by!

Linking up with these fabulous ladies.

  1. You are a brave woman. I'm afraid of jumpsuits...or should I say wearing a jumpsuit in a public restroom. I would love to eliminate the fear because it keeps me from wearing them. The idea of how to keep it safe from hitting the toilet is all consuming to me. Strange but true.

    On to a better subject: You look sporty and fun. Like you're ready to head out to enjoy another vacation :)

  2. I love that your jumpsuit is classy and gorgeous! You pair it perfectly with heels and a necklace instead of shoulder pads and a leather belt, excellent choice ;)

  4. Oh, good for you! You look terrific in this very cool denim one ... figure flattering on your adorable girly curves, and the bag and scarf are perfect pairings. You can get away with the message on the bag. On you, it says "joie de vivre" ... on me it would just affirm "Oh, that's what's making her fat!" Ahem.
    I've just bought the first jumpsuit I've had for ... well, a decade or two at least .... but with wide legs so I can drag out my platforms again. Woo hoo! Thanks for showing us how to do it right.

  13. Hello beautiful Mònica! I clearly remember the 80's, and the metallic jumpsuit, oh yeah!!! I love the jumpsuit too except when I have to rush to the ladies room, (if you know what I mean!) but that doesn't stop from rocking this baby and feeling like a superstar. You look amazing wearing it and I love the way you styled it. The Kate Spade bag is super cute! Thanks for sharing beautiful girl! Have an amazing weekend!
    xoxo, Jeannette
