Jumping 4 Jumpsuits

This past weekend was fun but crazy busy with out of town friends. Back to business, I still can't get myself to love jumpsuits. J-suits make me look shorter than my actual height and my legs look about 2 feet long, not very savvy at all. Granted I have found a couple pieces that are almost acceptable but I seriously don't have the urge to hand over my credit card to take it home with me. I understand it's the trend now but then a stylish gal needs to know what is savvy or sloppy for herself. I have found out J-suits with belted waist look more flattering on my petite height. My legs won't look cut off.
1. Tibi $295 via Saks
2. ABS $278 via Nordstrom --- I like 2 and 3 if I absolutely have to buy a jumpsuit.
3. See by Chloe $475 via Intermix
4. Marley $295 via Intermix --- I tried a Juicy jumpsuit very similar to this and totally insulted myself when my legs looked 2 feet long. Sigh....
Now comparing to a J-suit, I like rompers a lot better because this particular style is so much more flattering on the figure and legs. With a pair of cute sandals and savvy accessories, rompers are quite stylish even for a night out on a hot date. I am actually looking forward to wearing something similar this summer as soon as the temperature permits.
5. Venacava $476 (5+6 via Shopbop)
6. Rachel Paley $194 --- I love the color and will totally wear this with multiple strands of necklaces on a hot date.
7. Marc by Marc Jacob $228 via Saks
8. Ella Moss $178 via Nordstrom --- Adore too!!!
9. Juicy Couture $158 via Shopbop
What about you, are you jumping with excitement for J-suits and rompers this summer?

  5. I have to say, I'm not a fan. I've seen some that look like bunched up diapers. Not cute.

  6. I'm not a fan either. Way too Krissy from Too Close For Comfort for me. But to those who can pull it off: my hats off to you!

  9. I love the long ABS one. I'm not sure the shorter ones would look flattering on my figure type! they look really cute in those photos though.

  10. I'm getting used to the look of rompers and think they can be quite cute, but I still can't get over how you basically have to strip down to go to the bathroom!

  19. I bought a jumpsuit, but it's more capri length. I'll wear it when the weather is warmer. I hope this coming weekend :) then with pics I'll find out if it was a "good buy"

  20. i can't do it. i think that there will always be crotch issues -- too short in the crotch area is not good. and too baggy is not good either. i think it is much easier to find separates that work well than a jumpsuit that works well.
