The Jumpsuit

If Solange can rock one for her bike riding, opera house, total babe'd out all in white wedding I am fully in favor of the romper / jumpsuit / playsuit / call it what you'd like one-piece making a major stand for the summer months to come. You know that girl is my style idol. I can't think of anyone who's style game I love more.

And as the boyfriend cut, bell-bottom, wide leg grows in diameter that can only mean that the style will only get more comfortable and cute.

I took a few jumpsuits for a spin after Lady Gaga's Oscar appearance in this super glammed out little number on the request of the 504 TV show. I visited local New Orleans boutique Shop Stonefree and found their selection to be 100%. My vibe, all the way.

If you google "how to wear a playsuit" or jumpsuit or any of these styles for that matter, the things you'll find are fairly common sense:

Choose something that fits well (i.e. watch the camel toe, and the wedgy and the side boob, unless it's demure and intentional).

Choose fabrics that are breathable (especially as the temperature rises... nobody wants a full body sweat sitch).

Choose styles that have some basic taylor-ing, and tailoring. (i.e. keep the pajama looking styles in the bedroom).

Don't be a Britney.

Here's a round up of some of my favorites for the season. And if you're local to New Orleans, visit Shop Stonefree to check their selection!
