Fancy sweatpants of the year award: the jumpsuit

Last year, my “fancy sweatpants” was the maxi skirt. This year: the jumpsuit. I’m one in, and already obsessed.

I ordered this fun printed jumpsuit on Shopbop a couple of months ago, and wasn’t quite sure I’d be able to pull it off. When it arrived, it dragged on the floor (good to know for all of my vertically-blessed friends out there) but showed definitely potential. And by potential, I mean it felt like fancy sweatpants.Β

After a quick trip to the seamstress, they’ve already become a wardrobe staple. I love the facts that jumpsuits can easily be dressed up or down, and that they’re an entire outfit in themselves. Less opportunity for me to mismatch that way πŸ˜‰ I’m especially loving the cropped varieties that have been popping up, too!


What’s your fave jumpsuit above?? #1 spring wardrobe staple?

  1. I love it! It looks so nice on you! I am not sure I could pull one off, haha.

  2. Such a cute look! Way fancier than sweatpants but probably even more comfortable! πŸ™‚ I may have to try one of these. My problem is always with the top, I have broader shoulders, so it’s not so cute with super tiny straps… You’ve re-invigorated my quest for the perfect jumpsuit!

  3. You can totally rock that! I feel like I would look foolish but it looks great on you! Totally jealous!

  4. Is this an April Fools Joke?

  5. I had an amazing jumpsuit from Anthropologie that I wore once before it shrunk in the wash, even though I followed directions. I felt a little crazy in it, but it was SO comfortable…I think I’m going to need to get another!

  6. I love jumpsuits! I don’t have any that have a full pant leg, though. Mine are all short. The full-length version looks great on you! I’ll have to find one for myself. I totally agree with you on how they feel like fancy sweatpants. They’re so easy and effortless, yet somehow (unlike sweatpants) they make you look and feel so put together. Haha. Win!

  7. Sorry, I’m a bit distracted by the Disney Pirate Fairy background on your website. If this is a new movie, I’m way into the idea of it. I hope my niece gets on board! As far as the jumpsuit goes, isn’t it a bit awkward to wear with it being all one piece?

      haha i’m already excited for liv to see it. she LOVES tinkerbell πŸ™‚
      and no, not awkward at all! not any more awkward than a maxi dress

  8. I love the idea of a jumpsuit, but I’m not sure they’d be terribly flattering on me… Might be worth a shot though!

  9. I love the look of jumpsuits on other people but have never been able to pull them off when I’ve tried them on in stores. At 5’10” with long legs and a short torso they always pull in weird places… πŸ™

  10. Cute! I want to get a jumpsuit now! πŸ™‚

  11. I don’t think I could pull one off but it looks SO cute on you!!

    That looks adorable on you!! I love the print! I think I’d like to try a romper this summer. I saw some really pretty delicate ones in black on I think the brand was dolce vita? I like to stay away from prints though. I’m only 4ft 11in–so anything with prints makes me look bigger–but in you it looks good.

  13. ahhhhh i love it and need it!!!!!!! so cute babes. how tall are you anyhow!? i don’t know that about you!!!! i really love the green one on the left but that is just cause i always go for that green! it is kind of my colour haha

  14. i forgot to say… IT LOOKS SO GOOD ON YOU

  15. You look great in that jumpsuit. I’ve never worn one before, but would love to try. I actually like the Forever21 black and white one the best. So cute!

  16. I’d love to get one, but I’m also vertically challenged. Plus, I’m not sure if I can pull it off! Ha! I’m about 14 weeks pregnant… do you think these would work on the vertically and HORIZONTALLY challenged? πŸ™‚

  17. I am too short to pull that off I think. They are cute though. I still love my maxi dresses.

  18. I love the jumpsuit you’re wearing. I’m short and petite so I always worry about wearing a lot of patterns, which means I’d probably end up buying the very last jumpsuit from Forever 21 in the bluish-gray color, but yours is the one that caught my eye.

  19. Super cute! I’ve been wary of jumpsuits because I’m also on the tall side of petite (5’4″), but you’ve convinced me otherwise!
    I’m a big fan of the black one because you could dress it up or down.

  20. I have no idea if I could actually pull one off, but it looks so comfy!

  21. You look so cute!! You can definitely pull that off πŸ™‚

  22. Too cute! I wish I could wear jumpsuits…I’ve got a ways to go before I’d look as adorable as you do in them!

  23. I have a little black jumpsuit from 2009 that is HOT. I wore it on my honeymoon and that whole summer and was obsessed. Post-kids I haven’t been able to wear it again (yet), but I think this summer will be the summer! I am finally not pregnant or nursing for the first time in 4 years so I’m excited to see what clothes I can wear this summer.

      i know what jumpsuit you’re talking about!! you brought it to san fran right?! it’s GORGEOUS

  24. PS I LOVE your jumpsuit and that was obviously my original intention was to come here and say that!

  25. I saw Guiliana wearing one when I watched the premiere of their show last night… that’s the first I knew these were a new trend! I think I might not jump on the band wagon though. It was hard enough for me to try the shorts jumpsuit!

  26. I’ll be honest, I wish the jumpsuit trend would come to a very quick end. I hate the look. I think you rock the one in the picture better than any I have seen in real life, but in general I think 99% of the people that wear them shouldn’t and they just look silly. A lot of the jumpsuits I see, would look amazing as maxi dresses! I do think the type you are wearing, with the sundress/tank top and the long bottoms is the way to go. I think the jumpsuits/rompers that are shorts look ridiculous!

  27. You look great! I love this look and hope I can pull it off too. I’m still in the postpartum hell of not knowing how to dress my new body, but we’ll see!

  28. You look adorable. I always worry that those don’t look good on a shorty like me, but I’ll definitely give it a try!

  29. Looks great, but just not a fan – going to the bathroom and having all this fabric to worry about.

  30. what’s it called when it’s a jumpsuit, but with shorts for the bottom, not longer pant legs? shortsuit? short jumpsuit? anyway… i had one of those that i really liked, but lost a bit of weight (a good thing, in my case) and had to give it away. maybe i’ll invest in a new one and try the longer pant leg look! i like the first one, from free people. wish it were forever 21-priced, though, ha.

  31. I want a jump suit so badly, however, I am short and don’t feel like any of them look good on me! HA! But perhaps I just haven’t found the perfect fit yet!
