“Jumpsuits.”// Imagine wearing your favorite maxi dress but without having to cross your legs to ensure you aren’t exposing your “VAJAYJAY” // Kudos to Oprah + her producers for coming up with clever, catchy terms appropriate for daytime television. // My point is, we all know that Maxis are the cat’s meow. They are one of the most fabulous fashion facade out there. When we slip one on, we look feminine + put-together. Realistically, though, the truth is we were probably too lazy to put even a tank + jeans together or were too hot or felt too fat to imagine even wearing anything else but a breathable dress. Yep, we’re all fakers; BY FAKERS, WHAT I MEAN IS THAT WE’RE STARTING TO ACT LIKE TRUE FASHIONISTAS. //
So Maxi Dresses are freaking fabulous. That we’ve already established. Well, I have news that will rock your world. My approach to life is, “I like to look fabulous while putting in the most minimal effort possible.” Based on your feedback, I think we agree on this general approach to our life. So what did I find that align PERFECTLY with our approach of looking fab without putting in an ounce more effort than needed? It’s called the WIDE- LEG JUMPSUIT. As we already know, the styles of the 1970s are back in full swing. With that comes a plethora of gorgeous dresses, + now gorgeous JUMPSUITS. Exactly like maxi’s, these jumpsuits come in all designs, cuts, prints, fabrics, you name it; that maxi + now jumpsuit is out there to suit your soul. Often confused with a maxi upon first glance, you’ll blow at least one mind or two when you step forward to reveal you’re wearing pants. It’s almost like a historical moment for us women. Functionality + feminity have collided in a major way. How exciting is that?
So My Fabs, // we’ve found the maxi dresses of all maxi dresses. Except it isn’t a maxi dress at all. It’s all about the illusion + freedom that comes along with a wide-legged jumpsuit. Forever 21 is a great retailer to purchase your first full-length, wide leg jumpsuit. Add a belt for some flare, a chunky accessory or five. Just be sure to do one thing: have some fun with this feminine, functional fashion.
P.S. JUMPSUITS: How are we feeling about this Maxi’s quirky cousin? Would you rock it? How does it compare to the traditional Maxi? Is it a “Major Yay” or “Oh hell no Nay” for you? So much we want to know! We want to hear your insight, so please, let us know by commenting below!
