If a year ago, you would have told me that I’d be wearing a jumpsuit in a plaid print, I would probably have laughed at you. I have never been an enormous fan of plaid prints, except from that one legging I own. But when I came across this suit, I was sold.
Let’s be honest: most plaid prints are not exactly flattering on my body. The only plaid item I have lovingly worn is my high-waisted skinny legging with small plaids by Miss Selfridge, which I always wear with a cozy oversized sweater/top. Therefore, I never expected to be wearing a plaid jumpsuit with wide legs, but when I spotted this one during an online shopping session, I had to order it – even if it was only to see what it would look like on me.
Often, items with plaids never made it into my wardrobe due to both the colour combination and the size of the plaids. Since I am a huge fan of pastel colours, this combination of grey, white, yellow and light blue immediately spoke to me. The (fake) buttons on the sides of the legs make my legs look less big (since the print is interrupted) and the suit tightens in exactly that part of my waist that is the slimmest. Sounds perfect, right? You can always opt for wearing a belt with it to accentuate your waist even more 😉

Thanks to the suit’s sweetheart neckline, it is perfect for combining it with pretty tops. I am personally a huge fan of this combination: a white mesh top with lace and polka dots. Because, why not combine print with print, agreed? Do you fancy a more subtle combo? Then opt for a pastelcoloured turtleneck. I like to combine the suit with white or lightgrey, but black, yellow or light blue would look very pretty as well.
Because of the length of the suit and the cut of the legs, I like to wear it with a pair of pretty heels, such as my green velvet pointed boots with some silver glitters. Not only does the colour match the pastel palette, it makes the outfit a little bit chiquer, don’t you think?
