HIWWI: Pleated Bust Jumpsuit

{ASOS jumpsuit, $86.98}

Well, it's wedding season, which means it's time to buy a new dress for every one of the 7 weddings you're attending over the next three months. Or, you could buy this jumpsuit and call it a day. Which brings me to my first question: is it okay to wear a jumpsuit to a wedding? I mean, gone are the days of fashion rules at weddings (I'm sorry, black is okay now?? And I would be lying to you if I said I DIDN'T see someone wear cream to a wedding recently...), so what's to say you couldn't sport a grown up lady onesie at your next wedding? I dunno, I just bought this jumpsuit, and I'm giving some serious thought to wearing it to my friend Laura's wedding at the end of June. But not before I top it with this pearl-button blazer:

And these nude and lucite heels:

{Zara heel, $129}

And since this is a joyous occasion, you might as well wear some jewelry in the shape of a woodland creature. I vote for these stoned owl earrings:
{ASOS Earrings, $17.40}

Since this is a wedding, it's imperative you polish up your hooves. It's true what they say about a woman with an unpolished finger: she's a dirty, dirty tramp. So don't fall victim to that stereotype, you guys:

Help me out Cupcult...how do we feel about jumpsuits at weddings? Appropriate or totally wrong? What about other fashion statements, like black or (shudder) pantyhose?!

i feel like jumpsuits really depend on whose wedding youre attending. if someone wore one to mine, i'd be like "hi. nice...jumpsuit", but i wouldn't like hate them for it.

the black thing i think is out of the picture now. as long as it's not like the MOB or MOG wearing it to totally get a last dig in, like they're morning that they're losing their kid, i think it's fine.

cream/white, on the other hand? i'd slap a ho.

I think the way you're styling this definitely would be appropriate for a wedding. You could wear that to mine, but I've been married three years. lol.

I say yes because that particular jumpsuit is classy as phuck. I think the rules of the jumpsuit to a wedding are: Fitted. Appropriate. Solid. Bold color. (Just apply the same rules you would to a dress you'd wear to a wedding). Just ask yourself, are you feeling good about dancing in that all night?

Oooooh I love. Please wear it! It's so pretty and I'm the bride so I say rock that jumpsuit! :) You will start a new trend girl, you will see. People don't dare do things differently unless they see it on someone else. Plus, if it's a windy evening you won't have to worry about your dress flying up on you and showing off your goodies. ;)
Um..ohmygod I'm getting married in a month. ahhh!!!

Totes! Its obviously the new pants suit which old ppl have been wearing to weddings for years!

You can totally wear that jumpsuit to my wedding, if you'd like. On that day that I get married. Also, you could buy me those owl earrings as a wedding gift! We would all be so happy.

I'm not a jumpsuit fan - maybe just because I'm a shortie but, I think with the blazer and adorbs earrings it could be really cute. So what the hey just wear it! ;)

Jumpsuits are easy dressing! Love it. That nail color is right up my alley too.

I say go for it...especially if you dress it up with those cute heels.

White and/or cream are just not okay. Why do people still not understand that?

KatyK said...

I said wedding fancy, afternoon, ect....I feel like it depends on the type of wedding and how much of an 'in' you have with the bride and groom. I love what you said about an unpolished finger......but maybe not the owls?

Erin @ Currently Coveting said...

I think it's totally dependent on the person rocking it. If you feel confident in it, go for it! I think this little outfit you've thrown together here is the bomb!

Never heard of the whole not wearing black to a wedding thing? I just bought a black dress for one on the 9th.. oops?

XO,
Erin

I think as long as it's dressed up a bit you can totally make it work for a wedding...you don't always have to wear a dress.
