a lovely living

Once in a while I come across a piece of clothing and immediately wonder what I ever did without it in my closet! I recently purchased this sleeveless, terry jumpsuit from Everlane (currently on sale and available in a few colors) and loved it at first sight. The best part is likely the level of comfort it offers for lounging, traveling or day to day wear. It’s perfect for warmer months when all you’d need is a pair of sneakers or sandals, but this jumpsuit can be a great piece to grab all year long. I was brainstorming all the ways that I could put it to use and wanted to share what I came up with. These ideas would work with almost any jumpsuit you may already own, so take a look and see what you may be able to piece together form your own wardrobe!

One of the most obvious ways to style a jumpsuit would be to toss on a jean jacket and sneakers. Such an easy, laid back look for weekend errands. This jacket in particular is my favorite denim jacket that I’ve ever owned. It was worth the investment to get that perfect, relaxed fit without feeling too oversized. Not to mention fantastic quality that will last me countless years.

This is a look you can achieve by layering a shirt or shacket over top of the jumpsuit. I love this particular shirt because it can be worn either as a shirt or a jacket as it’s more of a heavy weight piece. Great to have during the winter to spring months to layer with.

The great thing about jumpsuits is that you can also treat them like sweatpants, yet you still have a cohesive feel and an added layer underneath. Layering a sweater or sweatshirt over top creates a completely different look. Just be sure to find one that falls around your natural waist, otherwise it could look odd.

I’m not going to attempt to call this a business casual look, because I think this particular jumpsuit is still a bit too casual for that. However, there are certainly other jumpsuits out there where this could be accomplished. By layering a casual blazer on top and tossing on some loafers you’re at the very least stepping it up to casual chic level!

One final look that’s perfect for the chilly weather many of us are experiencing involves wearing a cozy fleece jacket with the jumpsuit. Adding a comfy pair of sneakers immediately creates an on-the-go look that’s comfortable yet pulled together.

I hope these looks provide some inspiration and allow you to dig around in your own closet to create a look you may not have previously thought about pulling together! Have a great week!
