The jumpsuit is fundamentally a utilitarian garment. In seeking to elevate it to couture one might pair it with lighthearted nearly frivolous accessories. The juxtaposition of workman like substructure and impractical garnish creates the tension that makes the outfit. I have always loved the dungarees but I never really thought about the jumpsuit until I came across this denim example, last fall. I love the idea of the jumpsuit because it makes getting dressed so effortless. This particular jumpsuit has a funtional aesthetic; to take the look from casual to dressy I paired it with booties and a bold necklace, and since I didn’t have the right belt to break up the look I decided to tie a scarf around my waist instead. I have a feeling this item is going to be part of my wardrobe for a long time.
