MMM {ways to wear} The LBJ: Little Black Jumpsuit

I’ve had a recent revelation and it is this: You CAN wear a jumpsuit if you are not, like me, some skinny slip of a thing.

After trying this one from Monsoon recently, I was converted. And then I spotted this one from Zara.

Cropped in length so it feels more modern, it has wider legs and a tie-wrap front that shows off a small waist. Basically, it’s a pear-shape’s jumpsuit BFF.

They’re the easiest thing in the world to wear. And according to a recent survey, they are also one of the most searched for shopping items on Google right now.

What I love most about the jumpsuit is this: it’s like a dress in that it’s your catch-all, throw-on one-piece that makes getting dressed easier in the morning. But it just feels a bit cooler.

Here, I wore mine to the office with embellished sandals and a bright orange red lipstick (Mac’s Lady Danger btw), but if you’re heading out out, just slip on a heeled sandal and a bit of an earring = sorted.

They’re just as great for weekends dressed down with espadrilles or trainers as they are for posh nights out. Price per wear? Minimal.

I’ve edited the best LBJ’s currently out there on the high street, so whether you’ve got big boobs, a big bum or are petite this is the pick for you.

You really can wear an all-in-one. Honestly.

    Hi Erica,

    You inspired me to go seek out a black stylish jumpsuit ! I found the one on asos that’s similar to your Zara one. It came this morning and I am in love ! It’s relaxed but sexy and I got it in the sale ! I’m so happy because I’ve put on a bit of weight to to medication and I haven’t been feeling too great when I have something to dress up for. Well not anymore ! Thank you. Your blog and Instagram are amongst my happiest discoveries this year.
