Elegant, classic, perfect for that dinner date…. sound like a beautiful dress or gown to you? Ha! But I am not talking about a dress at all. Jumpsuits are the new dresses, taking over as the outfit of choice for those brunches, cocktail parties and even dressy dinners. I love being a woman for many reasons, and one of them is all the new, innovative clothing that comes up for us. 😀 Imagine wearing variations of pants and shirts all your life!!!!! Sigh! The tragedy!!!!! 😉
Back to jumpsuits. I would choose the crisp, clear cuts with tapered pants (the cigarette pant type) for the formal occasions, while the more flowy silhouettes are an anytime wear. I picked this ice blue cold-shoulder jumpsuit for my trip to Greece.
I wore it when we visited Olympia, home to one of the 7 ancient wonders of the world – the colossal, 40-foot statue of Zeus by Pheidias. It has a very trendy cold-shoulder, fitted waistline and has breezy pants. I think they got the fit reasonably right, which I have noticed is a bit hard to nail with jumpsuits. The material was flowy and the wind whips it all up around you, giving you a very Princess Jasminesque feeling. Err, yes, guilty of thinking that about myself 😛
I paired the jump suit with silver tassel loafers, a silver charm bracelet and a Calvin Klein watch. I added some color with mauvish berry lips and kept the rest of the face simple by lining only the upper eyelid.
The day was just as crisp and breezy as my jumpsuit, and I was comfortable, with the minor gripe of having to basically take the top off every time I needed the restroom. But hey, these are minor compromises for major payoffs. 🙂 The jumpsuit was perfect for a long day of sightseeing. Lots of walking, climbing over crumbling stones and finally the 3 hour drive from Olympia to Kardamyli.

Bracelet: Annabelle, from Pantaloons
Watch: Calvin Klein
Lipstick and Blush: Maybelline
PS: I really do not like the more fitted, tailored jumpsuits because I have figured that I don’t have the figure for them. 😉 But if you are thin and willowy, like Priyanka Chopra or Bella Hadid, then you would look lovely in those as well. Whichever style you choose, I definitely think at least one jumpsuit belongs in your wardrobe. Whites are really trending at the moment and also have the advantage of being classics.7
