Linen Jumpsuit

I know, I know… another jumpsuit?? The appalling thing is… this is just one in a (long) series of jumpsuits that I intend to feature this (and next) month. I know they are not for everyone, but jumpsuits are having a moment in my closet right now.

(Also, in defense of this jumpsuit: it’s part overall, which makes disrobing for bathroom breaks relatively frictionless.)

Some mornings I will have a sober moment, look at the section of my closet packed with rompers and jumpsuits, and think, “will I regret these purchases in a few years–or, more plausibly, two seasons from now?” And I don’t know. The scary thing about fashion regrets is that, at the present time, that thing which you will cringe at in the future probably looks like the most wearable thing in your closet right now.

Quay Australia My Girl 50mm Cat Eye Sunglasses (also herehere, and here) || Toucan Hats Cream Packable Wide Bow Sunhat || BP. Linen Blend Tie Front Crop Jumpsuit in Beige Beach (size XXS) || Zipia Double-Breasted Shirt (past season) || Chanel Cerf Tote (still available on the secondary market) || J. Crew Three-Strap Sandals in Suede

But I digress.

What I want to say is that this $59 BP. Linen Blend Tie Front Crop Jumpsuit is one of my favorite purchases this summer. Sure, it’s kind of a flawed item–the pantlegs are a touch slouchy, the material seems to attract stubborn stains*, and the waist straps are too thick and short to tie a perfect bow with–but it’s the only thing I want to wear when the temperature rises above 90 degrees. The design is just so breezy, and the material pleasantly breathable, that its flaws can be easily overlooked.

* Should you ever get food stains on this jumpsuit, sprinkle baking soda and then squeeze some lemon juice on the trouble spot, let sit until the discoloration lightens, then rinse and air dry. 

A word about fit: this jumpsuit is very oversized. I mean, the design is meant to be flowy, but I can probably comfortably go down another size or two if that were an option. I’d recommend that you order a size smaller, if possible, or at most try your normal BP size. And, because the sides are cut so low, if you wear this without a jacket, you may want to wear a pretty bandeau or bralette in lieu of a bra.

The style is available in three colorways: the light beige seen in this post, a true red, and a simple stripe pattern. And because it’s been available online for some time, most sizes have already sold out.  If you are interested, definitely check for popbacks, as that’s how I found mine after waiting a little too long to order initially.

And here are a dozen or so jumpsuit options in a light neutral that I found online–some of which I own:

Have a great weekend, everyone!
