If you had asked me about six months ago whether I would wear a jumpsuit I would have definitely said “No”. However never say never and here I am comfortably lounging on our sofa in a black jumpsuit courtesy of BlueMarmalade.
There’s a certain type of woman who simply would never be seen in an all-in-one. This Marmalade jumpsuit is however quite a different thing. Sophisticated and stylish, the fabric is very soft and fluid and drapes flatteringly with no clinging in the wrong places. It is tailored to flatter with a crossover front and bracelet length sleeves. Feminine, classic and definitely not a “onesie”.
Here I have styled the jumpsuit both casually and more formally with a necklace and silver ballet flats. It is definitely ideal for relaxing at home and in my opinion can be dressed up for an informal evening. I would happily substitute it for the black dress I featured in my previous post “an overnight capsule wardrobe” as it would pack like a dream.
Jumpsuits are so comfortable and you look amazing in this one. It looks great both ways you styled it. Here’s to taking a risk and trying something new!
The picture with the blue wrap is beautiful!
You are rocking that jumpsuit! Great styling both ways!
How Fabulous you look in your jumpsuit my dear! Well Done!
Your jumpsuit looks super-comfy, I must check out the website.
Jumpsuits are very flattering for most of us. But – if you’re going on a road rip that will mean stops at public restrooms that may not be clean, DO NOT wear a jumpsuit! Keeping the pants bottoms off the floor is a nightmare.
Rita I so agree I would not dream of it. Certainly when travelling on the french motorways I wear my oldest trousers although their facilities have improved from about 20 years ago. I shall wear it lounging at home or maybe for an evening with friends.
Looks great, stylish and super cosy
Lovely photos of you! You look great….
Hi Caroline Not surprised you took them. You are a very good photographer. If you have the time I would love you to come and take some more.
though i think the pilates, yoga, good diet, good genes, happiness… all helps!!
I’ve just discovered your fabulous blog. Well done and thank you – Ill definitely be a dedicated reader from now.
Welcome Anna and thank you for your kind words.
I don’t think I have ever worn a jumpsuit – might be time to try!
You look great, Josephine…I love the first photo of you…gentle, sophisticated glamour…perfect!
I love the jumpsuit! Very chic and versatile!
Thought I was too old (70+) for a jumpsuit but my daughter and granddaughter assure me that I’m not.
Took the risk today and bought one in the sale. It is lovely and so comfortable. Not sure that I will be brave enough to wear it in public but great for relaxing at home. And I could always wear it for bed!
