WFH Summer Items: Wait, Jumpsuits?

May 20, 2020

As you know, I have never embraced jumpsuits and rompers.  First off, my pear shape is not usually flattered by a one-piece style.   And secondly, jumpsuits are a logistical nightmare when it comes to using public restrooms.  But now that that second thing is no longer a problem…it might be time to consider buying a jumpsuit.

The slouchier top on this H&M linen-blend jumpsuit helps balance out a pear-shaped figure.  The stripe is lovely and summery, but it also comes in a flattering black solid material as well.

H&M has a bunch of jumpsuits to choose from.  This pretty, flutter-sleeve jumpsuit and crepe, wrap-front jumpsuit are also worth a look.  Nordstrom Rack also has this adorable dark blue jumpsuit and this puff-sleeve olive jumpsuit.  LOFT also has a very comfortable-looking jumpsuit.  Or if you want to channel your inner Dave Chapelle, this cargo-style jumpsuit is for you.

Plus-size?  This Vince Camuto twill jumpsuit and this denim jumpsuit from Talbot’s are both worth a look.

Of course, jumpsuits aren’t for everyone.  But in these odd times, I am happy for comfort and something unique to add to my wardrobe rotation, so I am more than willing to give this style a try for at-home wear.

    I bought this (in black) on sale from Old Navy a few weeks ago and it has been an excellent WFH option. Comfortable like pajamas but makes me feel more polished.

    I bought a jumpsuit right before shelter-at-home began. Haven’t tried it yet because I don’t think jumpsuits flatter but this post made me realize this is the BEST time to test if they work for me or not! Thank you.

    I recommend the Express jumpsuits. I can’t get on the wide, crop leg jumpsuit trend (maybe for a beach vacation…). They have a lot with tapered and straight legs, which I like better and are more flattering on me. I have one that is basically like PJs and get tons of compliments when I wear it.

    It’s funny that you brought this up because I just bought my first jumpsuit from Old Navy: https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=551827022. It’s super comfortable, but part of me feels like it is too dressy or staying at home. I’m trying to determine if my WFH clothing purchases are for the life I am leading or the life that I think I should be leading! TBD on keeping it.

    • Bea says:

      I bought that jumpsuit too and am pleasantly surprised! It’s a good fit for a curvy, average height 16 🙂

    • e says:

      Yes! This is the one I tried (and failed) to link above.! I say keep it! It can totally be dressed up or down.

  6. sara says:

    YES to jumpsuits. It IS tricky finding one that doesn’t give you diaper butt, but I think I have about 6 jumpsuits/rompers currently. They’re horribly versatile, and I’ve worn 2 to weddings.

    If you’re petite, look at Anthropologie because they are much better proportioned.

  7. Liz says:

    Fellow pear here. I think jumpsuits and rompers can be extremely flattering on us, as long as they are truly A-line with a very wide leg.

    • Andrea says:

      +1 to that from a fellow pear. I find that jumpsuits with the pockets positioned on the front help, as well. You still get the storage without the additional hip bulge.

  8. anna says:

    I’ve recently started considering shorts denim overalls. I don’t even know who I am.

    • Belle says:

      I had a super cute pair of regular overalls in HS. Slim-fitting, dark denim, minimal hardware, if I could find those again, I would probably still wear them.

      • Caitlin says:

        I have also been considering dark/black denim shortalls! I think the shorts keep it cute and casual, while full length overalls still read a little too farmer on me.

      • Elizabeth Tulasi says:

        I would love some overall recommendations! There were some cute ones at madewell but they sold out. Need something that is not wide leg or too slouchy.

    I just bought this fantastic Patagonia romper on sale – it will be awesome for this summer and a great travel piece when we can do that again… https://www.rei.com/product/143964/patagonia-fleetwith-romper-womens#product-reviews

    I bought the blue CK jumpsuit from Rack and I love it. It’s a bit short in the torso (not sure I am describing this right – it’s length from shoulder to crotch is not generous), but the fabric is thick and it’s really cute. I’m usually a 2 but the 4 fit best because of the aforementioned shortness. I also found a great polka dot one at Rack. Loving jumpsuits!

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
