Jump(suit)ing into Fall
Yes, I know, that is an extremely corny name for this post. Despite the corniness, jumpsuits are a great transition piece for fall. They can be paired with sandals as I have done here or booties and a sweater when it's a bit cooler out.
Until recently, I was a bit hesitant about the whole jumpsuit trend. I wasn't sure that I would be able to pull it off because it feels like such a big statement. Anytime I try on pieces like this it's typically pretty difficult for me to find one that fits correctly. That is one downfall of jumpsuits, they can often times be either too short or too long since they usually come in the standard small, medium and large sizes. It's not like jeans where you can buy the specific length and waist size you need.
Considering shopping for jumpsuits can be a bit of a trial and error process, I recommend always trying them on. It's also a good idea to wear shoes and maybe a jacket that you would wear with a piece like this when shopping for it. Since it is such a statement piece, this allows you to see how it would realistically look on you. For example, when I bought this I wore the green vest and sandals shown in some of the photos. Had I not been wearing these pieces, I probably wouldn't have bought it. Since there's no way to tell what colors and styles of jumpsuits you may try on, wearing neutral pieces to try on with them is your best bet.
I found this Lucky Brand jumpsuit on sale at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass. I ended up paying about $15 for it. If you're hesitant about trying this trend, I would definitely recommend looking for one on sale. There's no use in breaking the bank on something that could potentially go out of style quickly or that you would ultimately only end up wearing a couple of times. Since it is the end of the season, you may have luck finding a tank top or short sleeve style jumpsuit on sale. I have linked a few similar styles below since this one is from last season.
As I said before, I think this would look adorable for fall with a chunky cardigan, pullover sweater, or maybe even a long sleeve shirt underneath. Since the legs are a wider cut I would pair it with ankle boots or flats to keep it from bunching up. It's super helpful to purchase pieces like this that can be worn for multiple seasons. When it comes to your wardrobe, the more bang you can get for your buck, the better.
