Polka Dot Chiffon Jumpsuit for Spring

I swear Dress Barn has become a jumpsuit destination. This winter, I got this red cocktail jumpsuit from Dress Barn, and this spring I found this pretty chiffon jumpsuit with a ruffled neckline that is perfect for weddings, graduations, and all other social events on your calendar.

This jumpsuit is available up to size 16 and retails for $64.95 but is equal quality and style to similar jumpsuits at department stores for over $100.  I did no tailoring, this is the jumpsuit straight from the box.  With a Zipper Genie I was able to get it off and on by myself.  I did need a higher heel to keep it from dragging on the ground. The only issue with this jumpsuit is what I experience with most non-stretch clothing – it's a bit small in the bust.  There's a small snap to hold the wrap neckline in place and it's no match for my bust so I've fortified it with a safety pin.  I think a lot of people sleep on Dress Barn; sure they have many things that don't fit my personal style but each season I find some amazing looks.

My Picks from Dress Barn:

I love to add a pop of color with black and white.  Pink makes the bold colors feel more springy and soft.  These sandals were one of my best purchases last year; you can see them worn two different times in this post.  I recently got these earrings and was pleased by the big size; if this is too big for you Baublebar has a smaller version.

As for the bag, I bought it several years ago from Zara.  They have some pretty great bags but you need to act fast as they sell out quickly. And this outfit shows how not only do you not need to match, but a bit of pattern mixing can add style and make a look feel less severe.  If this had a pink bag, it would make the jumpsuit look cheap and draw attention to how not all the pinks are exactly the same.  If you don't have a print bag… bring in a different color with a texture.  Leaf green, yellow, aqua are all great choices. The wacky bag adds whimsy while also making the whole effect cohesive.

    Love this whole look, and I love your hair even more!! Any special styling for this new cut?

      Thanks Jamie! This cut is super easy. I leave a bit of conditioner in my hair after washing, add some anti-frizz serum, scrunch and let air dry. Then I fix any pieces with a curling iron and if I want it bigger, I add some Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.

    Gorgeous jumpsuit! Super classy and sophisticated. I love the print and I think the fit is very flattering. And I love how you styled it with the pink hoops, it gives the look a fun element.
