Party season is about to begin, which means you’ll soon be shopping for the perfect holiday party cocktail dress. But think about this first. Would you wear a dressy jumpsuit instead? This year, evening jumpsuits are stealing the spotlight. They’re classy, comfortable and look pretty darn sexy.
Black Lace Jumpsuit- Shop this look:
Here’s a gorgeous black jumpsuit by DVF that a has a wrap style lace bodice and 3/4 length sleeves. Black lace jumpsuits are trending at the moment. I think this one is absolutely stunning, but then DVF is my favorite designer. She really knows how to make a woman’s body look fab.
Wear this jumpsuit with elegant suede booties and lots of gold. Then throw in an unexpected twist by adding a small bag or a clutch in a pretty pastel, like blue or blush. Pastels mixed with black soften the edginess of all black and make this outfit look totally modern.
Still not convinced you’d wear a jumpsuit at your age? All the stars are wearing them, including many over 40, 50 and more.
Here’s Muriel Hemmingway in a gorgeous skinny leg jumpsuit with chiffon sleeves. Chiffon sleeves are a clever way to cover the arms, but not weigh down your look.
Elle Pompeo looks peachy in this pretty blush jumpsuit, although it appears she didn’t have time to have her seamstress hem her pant legs. Oops…
Felicity Huffman chose an ivory jumpsuit for this dressy occasion. She’s in her 50’s. I like the way she belted her jumpsuit. Wide belts like this are another big trend you’ll see this fall. They are one of many ways for how to wear a jumpsuit.
Jennifer Aniston looks tanned, relaxed and fab in her alluring black halter jumpsuit that has a bit of a 70’s retro feel. Cool!
