Whether or not you have Kim Kardashian’s bountiful booty or the pizzazz of a Solange Knowles nothing ought to stop you from rocking that beautiful jumpsuit. This piece of clothing popularized only in 2014 sometime, is now almost indispensable to the red carpet or the celebrity off-duty sightings. There in lies the beauty of the garment, we reckon.
The ideal pairing can make it look like a billion dollars and dressing it down can give you the ‘I-woke-up-like-this’ cool nonchalance. It feels odd that a garment that was originally used as a protective covering for skydivers and paratroopers is now the fashion industry’s sweetheart. We love that it can make you look svelte and slim with the right fit and highlight your beautiful décolletage in another kind of style.
