Style at a Certain Age is a lifestyle blog by Beth Djalali dedicated to aging with grace, strength, and beauty.
our regulars know that we don’t shy away from fashion controversy over here on the blog. earlier this year, we talked about the three most controversial fashion items for summer and five fashion rules every women should break. we’re all about defying expectations over here at style at a certain age, and today’s no different: we’re featuring a jumpsuit for fall—one of the more divisive autumn items out there. whether your love them or hate them, jumpsuits are statement pieces, and just a heck of a lot of fun to wear. sometimes it’s good to be bold, right ladies?
we’re featuring a chambray jumpsuit from J.Crew today. i’ve paired it with a pair of strappy heels, but i’ve also sourced a pair of slingbacks that would work just as well. we featured a similar jumpsuit last fall—paired with a blazer—which just goes to show you there are a lot of ways to accessorize a jumpsuit. although temperatures are probably too warm where you are to do so, just remember you can wear a jumpsuit well into the autumn months.
we’re advocates here for breaking out of our fashion comfort zone. for some of you, a chambray jumpsuit may be old hat: nothing to see here. for others, you may have wanted to try one but still haven’t. fashion is a low stakes way to get out of our comfort zone and embrace something new. be bold this fall!
