Jumpsuits are not for the fashionably cavalier. In order to come out looking stylish and not sloppy, it is imperative that your jumpsuit not fit you too baggily (no one wants to look like they’re hiding melons under their clothes). After all, an article of clothing that requires that much extra time spent in the bathroom should at least be worth it. Though there are hundreds of different styles out there, Topshop may have the one LBJ (little black jumpsuit) to end your suit pursuit.
Topshop’s sleeveless tie jumpsuit is black, satin, and—thanks to the waist-cinching tie—super figure flattering. The subtle V-neck draws the eye up to your face (perfect for a bold choker), without taking away from the jumpsuit. The suit’s versatility means you can wear it for day or night.
For daytime, layer a white oxford shirt underneath for an elegant—but still casual—take on black and white. And since satin makes anything seem more nighttime-y, don’t be afraid to pair this with a tuxedo jacket and stilettos for a night out (double style points if you rock a bright lipstick). If you’re running late and have no clean pants (we’ve all worn dress clothes to the Laundromat, don’t tell me you haven’t), throw on a boyfriend sweater or high-neck top; no one will be the wiser, and you’ve saved yourself a few quarters.
Jumpsuits may seem like tricky foreign (fashion) territory at first, but with this piece hanging in your closet, you will feel like an international fashion icon.
