The Crazy-Soft Jumpsuits I Can’t Stop Wearing
by AV editor
Have you ever worn something so soft that the moment you put it on you decide, “this is it, this is what I am wearing every day for the rest of my life, I live in this now.” This is what wearing a jumpsuit made of our beechwood fabric feels like. Scout’s honor, cross my heart, and pinky swear.
Let’s rewind a bit. I am not a sample size. I’ve got a little curve. So the idea of wearing one of our softer, lighter, fabrics in a full-body format was daunting. I always look for a little structure in my jumpsuits to frame my body and avoid the dreaded cling that comes with thinner fabrics. It is acting as an entire outfit after all. I wasn’t so sure I’d be able to pull off one of these “easy, breezy” pieces. Boy, was I wrong.
I finally broke when of the women in our office shared that she had picked up our Gardenia jumpsuit and it was so comfortable she’d fallen asleep in it. I thought, “In a jumpsuit? Really? C’mon.”
Always a skeptic, but also intrigued, I stopped by one of the SF Amour Vert stores and I picked up our Terra style. Terra is a sophisticated wrap number, with kimono sleeves that is, I kid you not, OBSCENELY soft. I wore it out that same night, and like my coworker had foreshadowed, I was so supremely comfy that I too ended up snoozing in my new favorite purchase.
Every single time I wear this jumpsuit, my friends compliment me on how great I’ve been looking lately. We’re talking re-tro-active compliments. This is actual witchcraft.
Needless to say, I’ve been keeping this piece in heavy rotation, styling it varying jackets and layers to ward off the San Francisco chill. I love that I feel like I am in public in my pajamas, look chic as hell, and all it takes is throwing on one piece of beautiful, buttery fabric. I can slip on wedges for wine tasting or grab heels for a night out. Sandals have been an easy go to all summer, and boots or sneakers are looking just as good as we reluctantly shift from summer into fall.
Do yourself a favor and try one of these one-and-done styles. The only challenge is finding a reason to take it off.
