A blush jumpsuit with a crazy fall-friendly twist.
What does one pair with a cute blush jumpsuit? Well, if you’re me: a jacket you picked up at a gift shop in Colorado. I first spotted this jacket hanging near the ceiling of a gift shop in Denver; there was a ton of ’em in rich camel and black suede, obviously handmade, hung near the ceiling on a column of a store. I was instantly obsessed. They were all men’s sizes, but I reasoned I could make a men’s small work. Hello, 90’s vibes! I immediately earmarked this jacket to make its debut at KCFW, where people understand (and appreciate) slightly offbeat, crazy fashion. (If you’re obsessed with this jacket also, I’ve found some super similar versions on Etsy here and here.)
I needed to either pair it with something girly or go full-stop tough. I decided to keep in step with my KCFW theme of girly + tough (exhibits a and b) because if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. This pretty blush jumpsuit was just the thing I needed: it’s very girly and also very on-trend (Millennial pink everything!). The front thigh slits added some interest and showed some leg, aka my fave one-two punch. A shoe in the blush family kept that leg line long. I used a double buckle belt to tie in the Western vibe of the jacket and then layered on some gold jewelry and an easy nude lip.
Shop the look:
So this blush jumpsuit is an obvious choice for spring and summer events, but I’m glad I could work it in for fall– even though it was 75 degrees outside, crazy Midwest weather. As for this jacket, my next challenge will be to style it tough: I’m thinking with high-waisted skinny jeans, rugged heeled ankle boots, and a black turtleneck. I’ll be the 2017 version of a Steven Segal movie.
Stay tuned Saturday: the massive KCFW rundown is coming at you! All the runway fun is yet to come; you won’t want to miss it!
