Jump For Your Life!

The All In One That's All That & More!

This season’s ultimate must have is an All In One or simply put, in one, the Jumpsuit! That’s right, the look of the crazy 60s is back again this season and in full swing but not so psychedelic.

The iconic look is represented in a variety of ways. Whether it be in a flowing, printed silk chiffon, or a sleek body suit, or cropped, the jumpsuit can take you from day to night in a matter of, oh let’s see, 30 seconds! This may just be the staple piece in every woman’s wardrobe. How can you make it work and look simply timeless?

Escalating Heights

A beautiful jumpsuit to really consider this season is the gorgeous Escada ‘Bird of Paradise’ All in One. This flowing beauty is a must have for the fun at heart. A gorgeous treat to either wear on a sunny shopping excursion on Bloor Street or to pack away for a trip to Maui. It’s simply perfect to wear anywhere, and can make a hurting head halt when faced with a crisis such as to what to wear to a friend’s poolside soiree. Cocktails anyone? Partner this enchanting Jumpsuit with a silk satin blazer or a lux cardigan.

Little Black Dress….move over.

Contrary to popular believe, the Little Black Dress does not have to be your only go-to piece for a chic event. The Hugo Boss All In One fits the bill with a cowl neckline and ultra wide leg with a satin sash belt. The wide leg, and plunging neckline can make for a dramatic appearance and is a fantastic alternative to the Little Black Dress, and did I mention it would be in black? All eyes will be on you as this flowing silhouette glides through the room. Being fashionably late never looked so good. Complete the ensemble with a gorgeous pair of chandelier earrings from Tiffany’s and strappy pumps from Christian Louboutin. They’ll all be asking ‘Who is She?’

And Then There Was One.

Now, it doesn’t all have to be about the gala or the resort, it can be for everyday! The beauty of the DKNY All In One is the neutral color and body conscious cut that not only extenuates a woman’s natural curve but also allow her to appear comfortable and ready to take on the days tasks effortlessly. Simple, practical and ergonomic. Stella McCartney also has a rendition of the one and only, in a breathable linen and cotton blend. Those sultry summer nights will be beyond bearable and you’ll coax them in style. Partner this look with a pair of comfortable flats and a convertible handbag.

Romp Around

Cut the cake and pretend like you were 6 years old running around in your backyard birthday in your romper. Now add 20 more years and you’ve got one fun look. The romper makes a comeback, no deprived childhood memory necessary. My recommendation is the Alice + Olivia romper. In a playful water colored print the muted tones and subtle airiness make this look the ultimate in girlish fun. Taking this look outside the backyard will call for a beautiful sun hat and Troy Burch flats.

Yes, the Jumpsuit is your iconic piece for this season and the seasons ahead. Make this a staple piece in your wardrobe and wear it well.
