I love a good jumpsuit and totally fell in love with this black pinstriped wide leg buckled number that I recently picked up online at Urban Outfitters. When I first saw it, I thought it was a unique piece and nothing like any of the jumpsuits that I currently have in my wardrobe. The menswear-inspired piece with a classic coverall silhouette instantly gave me a more casual vibe compared to the classic black jumpsuits that I normally gravitate towards. I pictured styling this piece with a tiny white tee when I first came across it, for an added element that is unexpected and interesting. Project Social T has truly mastered to art of the perfect white tee and I have been wearing their Tiny T on repeat all summer. I love that very relaxed, yet chic look of layering a white tee or knit with a slinky camisole or slip dress on top. Why do I love it? Not only does it extend the life of my warm-weather pieces, like this jumpsuit, but it also opens up a whole slew of combinations that you may have never thought of before.
This jumpsuit is so incredibly faltering with the buckled detailing that actually helps to cinch in your waist and create a more hourglass shape, as opposed to a straighter fit. I am also all about the wide-leg cropped pant style at the moment. The key to pulling off this piece is to pair it with heels (or a white sneaker) and have it be more fitted on top, by utilizing those buckles! I plan to wear this with & without the tiny white tee underneath and swap out the heels for boots. This piece would also look great with a cropped leather jacket! Hmmmm makes me think I should look for some more outerwear?! You can never have enough, am I right?!
Urban Outfitters has a few other jumpsuits that are all classic staples and would make a perfect one-piece outfit. A jumpsuit has never failed me when I am in a pinch and need something that is flattering, simple and makes me look and feel good! And if you are looking for a few budget-friendly options, this one, this one, and this one are all under $100!
