A sweet romper or '70s glam jumpsuit makes for easy Summer dressing. Think of it as your one-stop to seasonally breezy styling. They're a little spunkier than our sundresses, they go perfectly with flats or wedges, and happen to look fantastic under blazers, oversize cardigans, and denim jackets. They're one of the most versatile go-anywhere solutions to our Summer dressing queries — and we've handpicked our favorites under $150 right here. Just click through to shop our editor's picks.
Jump around! Showing no signs of slowing down, the jumpsuit trend appears to be here to stay. Celebs have been seen strutting around in sexy versions of the one-piece garments, but moms can find fun, ruffled, and floral versions for their tots. Using Liberty of London prints, and some traditional smocking, these long pant versions of the classic romper, give lil ones a polished, put together look, without having to worry about shirts coming untucked while they play. One word of advice though – steer clear of the one-piece garment if you're in the midst of potty training your tyke. They aren't particularly practical for frequent trips to the bathroom! Want to get in on the look? Start shopping by clicking the pictures above.
When jumpsuits reemerged a few years ago, we all wondered if the trend had legs (no pun intended). The song Dancing Queen kept popping into our head each time we looked at one. Then stylish ladies like Gwyneth, Rachel Zoe, and Kate Bosworth were spotted in them. Most recently, one of fashion's most respected designers, Phoebe Philo of Celine, rocked one at the British Fashion Awards, and we fell in love with all the jumpsuits on the Spring '11 runways. Jumpsuits can be totally sexy when you wear it right: not too tight, minimal accessories. Here, a look at some of our favorites.
When you're smack dab in the middle of party season, flitting from fete to fete, the little black dress routine can get a bit stale. The good news? There are tons of stylish alternatives to your usual noir number, and not only will you look just as chic, you'll also succeed at standing out in the crowd. Whether it's a feathered blazer ($125) or a slouchy pair of sequin shorts ($15), these swoon-worthy separates are sure to dazzle the room and drop some jaws. Click through to check out all of my Fab-approved LBD-alternatives.
Jumpsuits may look hard to wear, but they're actually quite versatile. They're also fun, youthful, and easy to carry over from season to season. Fab reader sassysweetheart took her heather gray version into Fall territory by adding a wool hat from Target, leather belt, and suede clogs. I'm just a hop, skip, and a jumper away from copying her cute and casual outfit.
Congrats to sassysweetheart!

Now that it's been confirmed that Jennifer Lopez is joining the upcoming season of American Idol, you know I'm going to watch just to see what she wears each week! For the press conference in LA, Jennifer chose a sequined, gray jumpsuit, with nude Louboutin peep-toe pumps, silver hoop earrings, and a silver cuff bracelet. It's a bold choice, and definitely more off-kilter than her usual red carpet picks. So tell me, do you approve?
Versatility is a key word when building your wardrobe; you want pieces that can effortlessly mingle with others creating a variety of looks. This is where your accessories (shoes, bags, jewelry, etc.), come into play, giving you countless style options no matter the time of day or occasion.
Here I've taken one main piece, Topshop's silk embellished jumpsuit, and styled it two different ways, only changing the accessories. Look one is perfect for evenings out as you're dressed up, but still comfortable in this unfussy jumpsuit. Look two is relaxed yet stylish as you run weekend errands and chic enough that you won't feel underdressed if at the last minute you're invited to an outdoor concert.
Jessica Biel is no girlie girl — she said so herself in Glamour's July issue — so it's refreshing to see her in so many super-femme ensembles during The A Team promotions. During their latest stop in Paris, Jessica opted to wear a navy and black Erin Fetherston jumpsuit from the Spring collection. Not only does it have a ruffle lapel, but it also has a large bow belt. Double the girlie! She certainly has the body for it, but do you love or hate Jessica in this look?
Let's start with the greats: that fantastic triple ruby Chopard necklace, cool cuff, and mesh insert sandals. But all the greats are overshadowed by Marion's Lefranc-Ferrant metallic sequins embroidered jumpsuit. I love a shimmering disco-esque jumpsuit more than most, but it all seems too much, too costumey. Marion has some real fashion talent; something is amiss. I'm handing her over to you to be the judge — love or hate?
Every woman can rock a jumpsuit. Let America further prove this. The actress attended the LA premiere of How To Train Your Dragon looking some sweet, some sexy in a black strapless Milly jumpsuit. The snakeskin belt accentuates her waist, while black peep-toe pumps elongate her legs. Looking flawless as usual, America.
