Season for Jumpsuits and Maxi Skirts

New York hit the 70-Fahrenheit¬†mark in the past two days!! I can’t help but be excited about the spring weather coming up. With the change of season, of course, comes a turn in wardrobe.

This year I plan to invest more in fluid, elegant pieces that fit with my style and are good for both work and play. Check out a round-up of my favorite pieces, jumpsuit and maxi skirt, below.

As you can tell, black is my staple “color”. Jumpsuits regularly come in black because of its simplicity and slimming effects (You don’t want to many prints or patterns on a long piece like a jumpsuit). It compliments slim, even petite, frames and those with long legs and/or small waist.

I prefer maxi skirts to maxi dresses because they can be mixed and matched with my collection of blouses. (Maxi dresses, especially high-low/asymmetrical ones, have their own appeal). I usually go for column or flared shape with a lot of room for walking and aesthetic flow. Because of my penchant for darks and neutrals, I go for black, grey, nude, dark maroon, muted tribal/abstract prints. However, the colorblock Asos skirt above is a nice pop of color.

Do you like or wear these pieces? Stay tuned for a post on footwear to go with jumpsuits and maxis.
