A Thrifted Black Jumpsuit From thredUP
You know when you thrift certain clothing and it makes you grin like a goon and you become obsessed with it? That’s this oversized jumpsuit for me. (As seen in my latest thredUP thrift haul)
It kind of goes against what fashion dictates that we wear.
It’s oversized. Unflattering. And, frankly, it’s ugly.
I think I like it so much because I’m not supposed to be wearing it. But I, for one, will always champion for clothing that is comfortable & practical.
Do you have something, or more than one something, like this in your closet that you love?
An Outfit Inspired By Halloween
For the inaugural wear of this thrifted oversized black jumpsuit, I leaned into the Halloween vibes.
I wore a striped, long-sleeve shirt underneath, a black wide-brim fedora, cat eye sunglasses, and black ballet flats.
I could be a part-time witch or Indiana Jones’ cool niece. (Harrison Ford, call me!)
Making Unflattering Clothes Look Better
The natural shape of this jumpsuit is actually really shapeless. It just kind of exists somewhere in time and space. I like that it can make people question whether I really have a body or not.
For the sake of this fit, I chose to wear a belt to give myself a little shape.
The one I chose is a fun, elasticized piece that has a big circular buckle. It helped to continue the theme of being comfortable without constriction. I love ’80s clothes for that! They were really on to something!
