You must have notice all the hype around Jumpsuits and Rompers in plus sized fashion these days….especially for summer. Wondering what your thoughts are on them?
A few months ago I did a roundup post on this, trying to figure out if this trend is for me. Click here for my initial reactions to this plus-size fashion trend.
And then while perusing the sale racks of Reitmans this happened..
I wasn’t quite sure this trend was for me …. a onesie in any season seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. Plus, the length and hip-to-shoulder ratios would typically be all off on my petite-plus sized bod. Any any alterations that would be required would only increase the price point I was willing to pay for THIS fashion trend.
But this gem fit! I found it in straight-sizes as an XXL …it wasn’t too long at all, the shoulders were only slightly larger than required AND it was only $19! #winning 🙂
What I really like about this jumpsuit/onesie is the thoughtful details of the flattering v-neck and the added bonus POCKETS for your phone and lip gloss!
I could totally see myself taking this from DAY-TO-NIGHT with a chic blazer and pointy-toed pumps, to get this office/boardroom ready. Transition to evening cocktails or weekend fun with layers of gold jewelry and metallic sandals.
This jumpsuit could easily be a great option to keep your packing light on vacation. Pair it with simple flat sandals to stroll by day, and wedges for an evening look.
An additional bonus…is that there’s a slight elastic ankle, which allowed me to wear the pants shorter if I wanted to…like I did above. With the interesting dark navy pattern of the jumpsuit, I chose to keep all the other accessories simple and gold to standout a bit more, along with my white ceramic MK watch. And lastly, I added a skinny gold belt to the waist, as it is the only GOLD belt I own.
Ideally, I would have liked to have worn this onesie with a more substantial gold belt…like the ones I’ve been coveting on my Polyvore collage board:
How I Got the Look:
White cross body w/gold stud purse, gold drop earrings & gold coral necklace, Aldo Accessories; Gold & white sandals, Le Chateau; Navy patterned jumpsuit, Reitmans; Michael Kors watch; Gold skinny belt, Dressbarn (from an old dress)
THIS JUST IN…..Reitmans (one of my favourite retailers) just recently put these pics of me onto their store’s Instagram! Exciting!!!! 🙂
Who’s already jumped on this bandwagon? Rompers? Jumpsuits? Where from?

You are a stunner Irene! I don’t think I’m going down the onesie route though myself.
Oh Marija…you are too kind. I had tons of reservations on the jumpsuits/onesies myself, only thing I can say is “Don’t knock it until you rock it” 😉
Lol. Ok. Maybe I’ll try it but I’m not holding my breath. You look great in this one though!
🙂 … just because something is trendy, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily for you. That’s fair Marija. Flattering over trendy wins every time. xo
