Oh man, I hope you guys don’t mind a few disco / Saturday Night Fever vibes on your hump day because today that’s totally what I’ve got. I recently picked up this amazing metallic jumpsuit from Zara (shocker, I know) and whilst it seemed a little ‘out there’ at first, on closer inspection it actually hits all my style pre-requites. 1. Easy to wear? Check. 2. Not too much print or colour? Check 3. Conservative enough to wear during the day with kids / in India? With a t-shirt underneath, check. 4. Interesting and a little bit different? Check. 5. Can it be styled in different ways to get more wear out of it? Check.
As my style adapts and evolves to the culture and climate of India I am finding myself drawn to things I like to call “simple statement pieces”. By that I mean, I want outfits that are either ‘all in one’ or that speak for themselves. I don’t want to have to fuss around with accessories or bulky details but I also don’t want to get around in plain, boring clothes that don’t make me feel good or happy when I wear them.
Jumpsuits are a great ‘all in one’ option. They are similar to a dress in that if you get the right colour and cut they pretty much do all the talking and require minimal, if any, add ons or accessories. I added the tee underneath the jumpsuit for a bit more of a modest, mid week look, and the necklace just for fun but this jumpsuit looks amazing with nothing underneath and some heels for a dressier, night time look. In fact, I have a hens night at the end of the year and I might just wear that then.
Now I’m not going to lie, wearing a full length metallic silver jumpsuit will probably get a few ‘looks’ anywhere in the world, but hey, people are going to look anyway, so you might as well make it worth their while. Right? Happy hump day everyone xx
