Summer means a lot of things. It means sunnier days, happier hours and afternoons spent sipping margaritas. It also means the return of summer jumpsuits season. I know, I know—leave it to a fashion editor to derive an unusual amount of seasonal joy from a straight-up clothing genre. But seriously, summer jumpsuits are a gift, and I will sing their praises every chance I get.
As a long-legged gal, I’ve oft struggled to make some of summer’s favorite pieces work. Shorts have been off the menu since my friend’s grandmother made a snide comment about my propensity for wearing short shorts. (They were, by all measures, regular-length shorts. But long legs have serious illusory powers as far as hemlines are concerned.) My tall frame leaves rompers looking more like bodysuits than anything else. And mini skirts and dresses are equally—shall I say—problematic when it comes to staying comfy and not flashing everyone within a 1-mile radius.
Given this, pants, midi skirts and—of course—jumpsuits are my bread and butter come the calendar’s warmest months. Jumpsuits, in particular, are as breezy as retailers’ shortest options—while offering a kind of mental assurance you can really only get from a pair of pants. Add to that the fact that they’re basically all-in-one outfits that require zero styling work, and you’ve got a summer fashion trifecta that truly cannot be beat. Convenience, comfort and concern-free wear at the same damn time? It’s honestly a little shocking we’re not living in jumpsuits all summer long.
Equal parts comfy and chic—now that’s a combo I can get behind.
