I saw this on Boohoo.com and just had to give it a go – how fun yet how risky, I thought to myself. Chance of looking like Crusty the Clown in a Wham! video? High. Chance of looking 1970’s in a non-ironic way? Also high. Chance of having fun whilst all this is going on? Well, I don’t know, at least a medium?
Sorry about my messy dusty mirror and, well, messy dusty whole house really. I enjoy cleaning and living in a perfect looking house, but I enjoy reading and thinking even more dammit. Anyway, I slipped this jumpsuit on when it arrived promptly from Boohoo, and thought to myself: actually, this is working for me…just about.
I wore this to work a while back actually, tried to pull off the look, with a mustard blazer over the top and some heels…but it looked a bit daft for a formal setting I think.
It certainly has a slightly clown-like tendencies, this outfit, maybe a bit of this goin’ on:
I think it was meant to be channelling a bit more Cheryl Cole like this:
Anyway, I liked how the bodice is quite fitted in this jumpsuit, and the square neckline is flattering. I think you could fit bra-straps under the straps of the jumpsuit, but the cut of the bodice makes cramming a bra under here a bit difficult unless you don’t mind it peeking out. I think an adhesive bra or nothing would work best – it’s quite fitted and supportive on the bust. The bodice fits the waist beautifully, and I think that is part of the reason I think this outfit could work. I’ve come to think it should only be worn as a stand-alone piece, and only for an evening do, a la Cheryl Cole, maybe with just a clutch.
Here’s me showing you the wide trouser legs. And below, the heels I paired it with. I’m 5’2 and the heels are 3 inches, so you can see above the trouser legs bunch up just a little on the floor on me. That should give you an indication of how the length will be on you if you buy it.
What do you think, is it wearable without looking too daft?! Thanks for visiting and supporting the blog, I’ll be back again soon. With love ❤
