What do they say about stripes again? Horizontal stripes will make you look wider and vertical stripes taller. Is that true though? Well, I can’t really say. Looking at my wardrobe, I don’t own any pieces with horizontal stripes. I do now own a striped jumpsuit that Roman Originals kindly sent me. Does it make me look taller? Maybe. The angle of the photo might help too. What do you think?
So we’ve established that vertical stripes will make you look taller. Maybe even slimmer? Although, it does not really matter. I don’t mind stripes, I do mind jumpsuit though. I have a sort of love-hate relationship with them. It is mainly due to my past as a (not professional) skier. There are two types of ski suits: two pieces and one piece. Of course, when I started, I was wearing a one piece ski suit. Kids often do. And really, having to remove everything in the toilet while it’s freezing and wet outside… well it’s not super pleasant.
Thus, you understand why I am not wearing jumpsuit often. Because even in summer, you need to remove it all when you go to the loo. Yup. That’s the only flaw I find them. Otherwise, I like jumpsuits. And this striped jumpsuit makes no exception. I do believe that a jumpsuit is one of the most versatile fashion pieces you can own. Style it down for work or a day walking through the city, style it up for a dinner date or a night out. And I also really do like how it looks on me.
On this occasion, I chose to style it down. Ana and I were in Tuscany when these photos were taken and the jumpsuit was the perfect piece to walk (and drive) through Tuscany, have dinner and chill on the terrace. As you may already know, I am a sucker for denim jackets. I got this one a year ago and I am still in love. Basic but timeless. Paired up with a bamboo bag that seems to be the it-accessories of the summer (still), a straw hat and straw wedges with an Aztec print. And a bit of tassels to add some more blue to this outfit.
Going back to that striped jumpsuit, I am not used to them. But I am so glad I was sent this one. It is super easy to style, so comfortable to wear and put on. The belt just above the hips helps highlight the waist and the fabric is so light and floaty, it’s perfect when it’s very hot outside while not revealing too much. I used to like jumpsuits on other, not me, but now I love them on me too. This one at least!
What do you think of this outfit? And the jumpsuit? Is it your style? Do you wear jumpsuits often? If not, why not? What’s your opinion on them?
Thanks a lot for stopping by, I hope you liked this post.
See you soon,
*I was sent this jumpsuit by Roman Originals as a gift but all opinions remains genuine and my own.
