Every girl knows their closet is incomplete without the famed Little Black Dress. However, in addition to the LBD, I’m convinced that the same is true for its younger, more limb-inclusive sister, the Little Black Jumpsuit. To be honest, in the last few years, my favorite LBJ (not to be confused with the 36th president, though I feel like he would’ve appreciated a good jumpsuit) has actually been worn more often than any of my LBDs. I know. Shots fired! It’s full-blown WWIII in my closet right now.
Not only are jumpsuits super comfortable, but they actually can be much more versatile than their dress counterparts. An LBJ in particular can look just as dressy as an LBD, but the pants factor allows the jumpsuit to be more easily dressed down. And while both pieces are great seasonless investments, I’d be inclined to say that the little black jumpsuit is the better purchase as we head into fall and winter—because again, you’re getting all of the formality without the excess exposure of your lower extremities as temperatures drop. I can say from experience that the LBJ is a cold-weather godsend.
I wore this black jumpsuit to the rehearsal dinner of one of my best friends this past weekend, and it was super comfortable for a hot summer evening. However, I’m excited to wear it all through the fall and winter with a leather jacket, and not freeze my keister off like I do in little black dresses.
The jumpsuit you see today is new to my closet, but I got this long-sleeved DVF wrap jumpsuit a couple years ago and if you follow me on instagram, you know I have worn it COUNTLESS times since. Easily the MVP of my closet in the past two years.
I’ve included a bunch of my favorite LBJs below, but holy smokes, check out this one and tell me it isn’t the coolest most versatile (literally) thing you’ve ever seen. I’m 100% purchasing it… I’m just torn about what color to choose. I know I’ll get a ton of use out of the black… but that blush?! Sheesh that beauty’s hard to pass up.
