Jumpsuits are finally having their moment. I like to think of them as dungarees’ more glamorous cousin, and while I wouldn’t completely pass on dungarees (there are some quite sophisticated pieces out there, if you have the time to look), I’ve been something of an admirer of the jumpsuit, albeit from a distance. It was just too much out of my style comfort-zone for me to plunge into that particular trend.
But then, a few days ago while I was browsing Superbalist, I found this gorgeous gold jumpsuit, and decided to just go for it. I liked that the leg is a wider cut so it proportions the body well without revealing too much shape. As luck would have it, it was only available in my size and if that wasn’t enough to convince me, it was also on sale😊 (Unfortunately, I may just have snagged the last one, since I tried to link it to this post, but I don’t see it up anymore.)I was so apprehensive about this one when it arrived, to be honest, and was actually ready to give it away if it didn’t look right on me, but once I tried it on, all my misgivings faded away. To make it hijab-friendly, I’d place a plain black open-front abaya or kimono over it, with a complimentary headscarf. The top is adjustable to allow for less skin to show, which I really like about this design. Accessories would be minimal, since the fabric itself is a beautiful dull-gold with a slight shimmer, and that on its own exudes understated elegance-just the look I’m going for. Heels are a must for this ensemble.
Now there are a few upcoming ‘ladies-only’ functions I have coming up, so I’m hoping I can wear this very soon!
