My Electric Blue Jumpsuit

I made a video a few weeks ago to help people learn how to find vintage deals on eBay. One of the items I talked about was this 1980s-era jumpsuit. I mentioned that jumpsuits are really on-trend right now and that I don’t want to pay a couple of hundred dollars for one. This one was $3.99 and does the trick. Here are two ways to wear it:

First, I accessorized with a statement necklace, funky belt, and killer heels. I like the look and I’d wear it to dinner or dancing.

Jumpsuit: eBay
Belt: From of a dress I got at Express
Necklace: Macy’s
Shoes: Badgley Mischka

I thought the jumpsuit would look great with tall boots too. I can tuck the pant legs in or roll and cuff them and wear them over the boots. This is what I wore to my 40th birthday party last night. My birthday is today and I’m celebrating for three days straight!

Necklace: Premier Jewelry
Boots: Mia

It’s kind of space-age, don’t you think? If a one-piece look is too intense for you, try wearing a blazer over a jumpsuit to break up the color. Have you tried the jumpsuit trend? Would you dare?

    WOW- you turned 40? You look amazing! I’m flirting with 40 now, in 6months i’ll be there. Any advice? love the jumper.

  4. Thanks all! I thought the jumpsuit needed heels and the gray was so soft. I also find it fun to mix pricier items next to cheap ones.

    I didn’t know you are so close to 40 as well, @earnedbeauty! My advice is enjoy life and don’t worry about numbers 🙂 You’re as young as you feel.
