I went to NYC last weekend and managed to fit all my stuff into carry-on luggage. As a notorious over-packer, this is a true triumph. I feel like I owe a lot of this success to the work of art that is the denim jumpsuit. My only regret is that I couldn't fit more than one denim jumpsuit practically into the luggage, (most shocking, according to my friend Amber, was the fact that I have more than one denim jumpsuit). In the past, I would have been just as shocked as Amber at owning even one denim one-piece. However, there are several surprising reasons you need one of these babies in your closet.
First off, a denim one-piece is surprisingly comfortable. The black one posted above is crafted of soft and stretchy denim. This provides a wear-all-day feel that is the opposite of what comes to mind initially with denim--scratchy and stiff.
Second, this piece, despite being an all-in-one is capable of many different looks. Booties + poncho for game-day; platform heels + leather jacket for a night out; over the knee boots and oversized fur coat for a cold day out shopping. Not to mention by itself with sneakers!
Third, the denim one piece is sexy. It exudes vintage 70s vibes with a modern, black denim twist. The zipper neckline on this number by DL1961 makes it easy to turn up the heat with a customizable deep v-neck of your choice. The stretch denim and unexpected silhouette make this piece a guaranteed conversation starter.
