I'm a little past due with the topic of Jumpsuits, but better late than never. Jumpsuits are not just for mechanics anymore. Jumpsuits are a quick wardrobe decision that looks polished and keeps you aired out during the heat. One of my favorite sassy gals, Sloan from Entourage, wears jumpsuits all the time to give her a drop-dead gorgeous, classy look.

Before I place jumpsuits on a pedestal, I will say I'm anti M.C. Hammer pant suits. They look awful on everyone, and they’re too crazy to possibly look good in. I will showcase jumpsuits that turn the average woman's legs to long model looking legs. Who wouldn’t be an advocate for clothing that makes you look taller and leaner? There are always a lot of opinions about what body type does or doesn't work with jumpsuits, but there are certain styles of jumpsuits that work well with most! I'm covering pant jumpsuits, but there are short versions that aren't my cup of tea. Either way, you've got to stick to your own personal style, and represent yourself with the utmost confidence.

My first jumpsuit, the Newport News Colorblock Jumpsuit, is so hot! I honestly think it's the most casual, yet alluring jumpsuit. I like the unique brown/black color combination, and the bright pink belt that comes with it. The style is very soft, and wearable. It doesn't look so rigid. If you are a jumpsuit virgin, this one may be a little jump for you, no pun intended.

For the hesitant ladies who are less likely to go for color and a dramatic look, I have a sexy Donna Morgan One Shoulder Jumpsuit. This jumpsuit is very extravagant and will accentuate curves like no other. Smaller framed women could, and should, take full advantage of this jumpsuit. The flared legs give it an extra boost of character, without looking too hippie.

For the exotic loving ladies, I have a fun, gorgeous deep orange jumpsuit. It also comes in black, but there’s no comparison. This Newport News Wide-Leg Halter Jumpsuit is probably the most flattering jumpsuit. The shirred bust and beaded tie straps are a simple addition to the vibrant dress. It’s a comfortable jumpsuit that can be flavored up some more with accessories or worn simply and elegantly in the summer heat.

Move over Juicy suits; you’re not THE suit anymore-- there is a newer, classier, and hipper one town.
