Jumpsuits--some fashion trends never go out of style, one example: the effortlessly chic jumpsuit.
The jumpsuit made its grand debut in the 1920s and then became a huge hit in the 1970s with the infamous Studio 54. The open backs, large v-necks and bell bottoms epitomized the jumpsuit. Jump forward 40 plus years and the jump suits still remain iconic fashion pieces. They have graced the catwalks of Chanel, Helmut Lang and Stella McCartney.
How to look chic in a jumpsuit? Here are some styling tips...
1. Statement jewelry.
2. Stilettos (for a night look).
3. Platforms (for a day look).
4. Blazer or kimono (for those breezy summer nights).
5. Large sunglasses, e.g., cat eye or round frames.
6. Turban (for a really bold look).

I am a huge fan of jumpsuits because the look remains effortless, chic and classic. Did I mention they are very comfortable and light for those hot summer days? Below, you will find photos of how I wore my white jump suit...until next time fashionistas, signing-off from New York City!
