Black and White Striped Jumpsuit, over 40

black and white striped jumpsuit

Today I’m styling a loose and comfortable jumpsuit, not for any reason other than I’ve put on a few pounds during my break last week.
{Read about why HERE}

Piling on a handful of pounds makes me feel pretty good.

I love having a bit more flesh on my body, but the downside is that my normal clothes don’t fit so well.

Time for some serious fabric stretch!!

and why I’ll never photoshop my image HERE… even though you can spit peas through the fabric of this jumpsuit!}

Thin and stretchy fabrics are neither smart nor flattering, BUT they are undeniably comfortable!

I’m slopping about without looking too sloppy by adding a couple of details and a layer.

This jumpsuit is perfect for layering.
As long as the under-layers are smooth and the top layers are long enough to skim.

I’m not wearing under-layers today (apart from a culotte slip) but I’ve teamed it with a linen biker-style waistcoat to give my extra pounds somewhere to hang out!
A pale grey bag, silver slip-on loafers and some layered necklaces finish things off nicely.

I’d love to hear all about it!
