This outfit is one of my boldest in terms of colour. I usually inject a little bit here and there while sticking to a pretty neutral palette otherwise however when I spotted this jumpsuit I decided to be a bit daring for a change.
The utility look is very much on trend and I love a jumpsuit at the best of times so it’s a great combination. It’s definitely a different vibe for me, both in terms of colour and style but also in relation to the material. Corduroy is a fabric I have completely avoided until now. It has that similar textured feeling to velvet which is another fabric I tend to avoid.
It’s very much a one dimensional outfit and the focus is completely on the jumpsuit. As a result, I found it a little tricky to style up. I went with my Louis Vuitton boots this time and a little black bag however I couldn’t find any jackets to wear with it. The thick and high collar makes it difficult to wear with a jacket, even my collarless leather biker jacket didn’t work.
I could only really think of one other way to wear it so it’s not a particularly versatile option and for me that means it will get limited wear. I prefer things I can wear over and over again and style in a variety of ways. It’s also more of a trend and season specific piece. I don’t see me pulling this out in Autumn although practically it would be ideal as it is really thick and warm but with the colour being so bold and being unable to easily identify a jacket or coat to throw over, I feel it’s simply a Spring / Summer piece.
What do you think? I feel it will be a love or hate thing with no in between.
