Steal Her Style: Eve La Rue’s Little Black Jumpsuit

What’s far more fabulous than the Little Black Dress but equally functional?

The Little Black Jumper.

The one-piece in basic black oozes sophistication and class, and can be dressed up or down with a simple switch of pumps and purse.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

There are three words to live by when shopping for a jumpsuit: Keep. It. Simple.

Think of it as the backdrop for killer accessories.

Simple details like a ruffle or built-in belt are all you need.

Unless you’re a teenager (or want to look like one), steer clear of harem-pant or super-skinny stretch bottoms.

A trouser-pant is the perfect cut to flatter your figure and showcase your style.

This Arden B jumpsuit has a ruffle that drapes over one shoulder and a sash that ties at the waist. The blouson shape masks any midsection insecurities.
