SHOPPING//THE BETTER, BOLDER JUMPSUIT

Those who love a jumpsuit, LOVE A JUMPSUIT. But not all jumpsuits are created equal. Fact. Of. Life.  Some are made cheaply, have zero shape, terrible construction and look messier than sweats suits. Makes me sad. 

Here's a curated list of jumpsuits that are "a cut above" in terms of style, perspective and fit. 

The better military jumpsuit 

I know, you know about the usual military jumpsuit: she's long-sleeved, straight legged and has been worn to death! How about trying a number that balances the army vibe with some soft flourishes? A little ruffled sleeve maybe? Oww!

This one is MUVIEL. 

I'm sorry, WHAAAAAATTTTTTT?! An off-the-shoulder, ruffled jumpsuit in olive green? Lord, lord, there is a GAWD! 

This is by Hatch.
