Who would have ever thought that a utilitarian one-piece garment used by skydivers and parachuters  would one day become a sartorial necessity packed with punch and oomph? Puzzled? I am talking about the jumpsuit, of course.

There is something so effortless and chic about this one piece and black means it is a great canvas and can be styled in hundred different ways.

The fact that it can be dressed down for work or up for play only makes this style so much more irresistible to me.

Here I’ve paired my black jumpsuit with gold accessories and a sparkling clutch to keep it simple yet chic. So, this holiday season if you want to try something other than the LBD give the black jumpsuit a chance. You will love it, I promise.
