Currently Craving... Jumpsuits!

Summer is finally here! And with it comes my need for easy thrown-on pieces that don't ask too much, yet are still flattering and chic. I've long flirted with jumpsuits, some past posts here, here, and here, but have yet to find the quintessential piece to fulfill all of my summer dreams! Here are some contenders. 


Unfortunately, this is sold out, but I do like the slate blue color, that fact that it's cropped, and of course pockets! 


Here's an overalls option, again pockets are key, and this could be a fun to layer with flirty tanks throughout the summer months. THEN, come fall I see some flannel under this onepiece. 


A very casual option with this jersey number. Of course, side-boob isn't really my bag, so layering is key here as well.  



For me, summer garments need to have flow, and this black jumpsuit definitely has that going for it, plus the pleating in the bodice feels very elegant and a bit more dressy than the others. 


Speaking of dressy, this jumpsuit features some lovely ruffles and polka dots for a more structured take.  



Another pick from UO, this one walks both a casual and dressier line with the easy silhouette and windowpane-esqu pattern. I also, think this could be really flattering for me with the wider straps and shirred elastic waist. 


Of course, all of the above are kind of blah in terms of color....



A very pretty pick in lilac! Again, a shirred bodice is great for ease of fit, and such a summer staple. Two points against this jumpsuit, lack of pockets AND those straps seem a bit flimsy. 

There's the rub! Each of these options have great details, but none of them have ALL the details I need. Easy to wear, works as an outfit within itself, suits my body, thick straps, has pockets, and features a nice balance of structure & flow. Tall order, but I'm not giving up! 


But seriously, which is your favorite of these picks? Let me know in the comments and I may just be swayed to make a purchase....  😊
