Sometimes, (always?) it’s really really good to be a girl.  Exhibit A: JUMPSUITS.

 

 

You get it.  Jumpsuits this season are everywhere and everything, yet despite their pervasiveness, this beautiful union of pant and shirt has not yet permeated your professional wardrobe.

 

 

Fix that.  Now.

 

 

Below I’ve provided a line up of my favorite office-approved jumpsuits that are armed (well, some are sleeveless actually) and ready for your 9-to-5 and beyond.

 

 

Maybe you’re going for comfort.  Maybe you’re dying for the chance to sport the ever-present jumpsuit trend Monday through Friday.  Maybe you just need to satiate your inner astronaut/Nascar driver/Elvis impersonator/[insert other awesome profession that requires jumpsuits].  Whatever your reason, just get after it, because you’re a girl, and you can.

 

 

Just make sure to be extra sympathetic to your sad, sorry, suit-sporting male colleagues…

 

 

How’s that suit feeling, buddy?  Your windsor knot looks great.  I’m literally wearing a onesie right now.  And I look awesome.  Sucker.

 

 

Man, it’s good to be a girl.

Two Important Notes: (1)  Depending on the particular jumpsuit and your office environment, you may want/need to keep a blazer on over the jumpsuit during the day, especially if your office is more formal and/or the jumpsuit is more revealing.  (2) I’m wearing sandals above which is commonplace and acceptable in casual and creative offices, especially in warmer climates, but if you work in a more formal, conservative office, these could (and should) be swapped out for classic pumps or flats.

  1. The jumpsuit fits you perfectly, and it looks great, but… I am still not persuaded that it’s professional wear, and I still find jumpsuits ridiculous. I really don’t see their point, sorry.

  2. Your comment about being basically able to wear a onsie to work made me nearly spit out my cup of tea on the computer monitor. Definitely my laugh of the day! Its clearly better being a girl through the summer months – I can’t imagine how awful it must be having to wear a tie to work when its 40c.

  3. Just made the mistake of reading this post while I was on a conference call and I actually snorted into the phone when I hit the onesie comment. It was all I could do to keep it together through the nascar/Elvis part, but there was no hope after onesie. Omg hilarious.

  4. I’m still on the fence about the whole jumpsuit/playsuit/onsie thing, especially at work. Even the classiest of jumpsuits (like the one shown here) still leaves me feeling like its just footie pajamas with the feet and arms cut off. I’m glad you are featuring non-traditional work items, but I think I’ll have to pass on this one. You look beautiful though!

  5. Why have I not thought about this before? I’m 100% on board with the jumpsuit at work. Especially with a blazer on, the look is SO professional and beautiful. Thanks for continuing to help me think differently about my boring office outfits!

  6. This is so wonderful as an alternative for the office. I just haven’t been able to figure out how to hit the bathroom without completely undressing. That’s too much effort in the tiny cubicle they offer in my office.
