Women who live in jumpsuits swear by the one-and-done ease of dressing that can take them from work to date night with very few changes. Rely on the jumpsuit and you’ll be able to streamline your morning routine and cut the mundane decision-making to a minimum. All without sacrificing a bit of the professionalism that’s important to your career.
Choosing the perfect jumpsuit can be a challenge when most affordable options seem to be lavished with artificial embellishments and the stylish simplicity you want from high-end designers comes with a price tag of hundreds of dollars.
This season it’s the utility jumpsuit that’s capturing attention. The new silhouette is inspired by the classic flight suit. Look for the latest boxy and boyish styles that have the perfect slouchy quality. Try one with a three-quarter sleeve and blazer collar. The look is smart enough for your work day and chic enough to carry you through to after work drinks at a posh spot. Wear it with an updo for absolute sophistication. Look for the Rachel Comey jumpsuit on matchesfashion.com priced at $448.
A surprisingly place to find a jumpsuit is the Work Utility and Safety Apparel section of Amazon where you’ll discover the Five Rock Poplin Short Sleeve Unlined Coveralls. These unisex coveralls with elastic waist and front zipper are surprisingly formfitting and the poplin material makes for one breathable jumpsuit. Two large pockets on the hips and two generous chest pockets make this $40 jumpsuit wildly practical.
Look for versatile and stylish pieces that travel well. One is the Loft Beach Tied Cutout Jumpsuit, which features a cute cutout silhouette that is easy to dress both up and down. Add a pair of heels and a clutch and you’re headed out for a night on the town. The cutouts give a slightly sexier look that works for nighttime, and if you’re looking for a more-covered up look for daytime, just layer on a tank top and pair with comfy sneakers. This jumpsuit has pockets, the material is lightweight and breathable, and the price is $80.
