Okay, we admit it: we know jumpsuits are a huge trend this season, but we also think they’re a bit tricky to pull off. Fit is often a huge issue—and, like when you’re considering any other item in your wardrobe, bad fit should always be a deal-breaker. However, when done right, the jumpsuit can be staggeringly chic. Case in point: Kristin Scott Thomas, in this black strapless number.
Why does it work? For starters, this jumpsuit, unlike most others—which tend to be more relaxed, with a blouson top and drawstring waist—is tailored to a T: both the sweetheart neckline and the thin, lady-like belt highlight the actress' figure. Moreover, the pant is fluid without being baggy, and the length is spot-on. In fact, we'd highly suggest trying an ankle length pant for evening, especially if you're wearing an interesting shoe.
Plus, we absolutely love that her gold necklace and cuff—while quietly evoking a certain 70s glamour—don’t go over the top. That goes for the hair and make-up, too: a loose chignon and a red lip are the perfect sophisticated take on relaxed elegance.
