What Exactly is a Jumpsuit?
You see these one-piece wonders on the clothing racks of your best-loved clothing store and worn by your favorite fashion bloggers. But, what exactly is a jumpsuit? A jumpsuit is garment that includes both pants and a sleeved top in one piece. Originally inspired by what parachutists wear when out to play, jumpsuits combine both aesthetic and function to help you look fashionable with ease. I am a total fan of jumpsuits for so many reasons!
Reasons Why I love Jumpsuits
(1) I love wearing jumpsuits because it takes decision fatigue away. No need to decide if the top pairs well with the bottom or if the patterns and style conflict with each other? Stepping out of the door looking chic, casual and cool is effortless when wearing a jumpsuit. (2) A jumpsuit combines both retro and modern styles together. It is a perfect blend of classic and contemporary design. Jumpsuits are easy to style because of this. (3) Due to its roomy silhouette, a jumpsuit compliments many figures. You can also select a romper (jumpsuit’s younger sister) which a top attached to shorts.
ba&sh Spring & Summer Collection
My stylish jumpsuit is from ba&sh. A Parisian inspired clothing line created by best friends Barbara Boccara & Sharon Krief. I am a total fan of ba&sh and pay homage to Parisian chic style here. Their Jumpsuit Flair has a stunning honeycombed fabric punctuated with gorgeous floral graphics. I actually really love the straight fit and elongates my figure perfectly. The 3/4 quarter length sleeves and shirt collar are simply elegant. And, the side pockets are a plus to this amazing one-piece wonder!

Jumpsuits are the way to go. Easily when I don’t feel like wear a dress. One and done
As long as you like the pattern, I think it would take away much of the decision making process about what you wear. This jumpsuit is very beautiful. I do love the floral pattern.
I love a jumpsuit as a fun alternative to a dress! Love this one with the floral prints!
