5 reasons you need an LBJ (little black jumpsuit)

little black jumpsuit

Ask any woman to recount the important items in her closet and she will undoubtedly mention her LBD, or little black dress. Well, I’m beginning to think a LBJ (little black jumpsuit) is as much a modern wardrobe staple as the LBD. It’s one of those pieces that will offer instant sophistication. On-trend but not over the top, it ensures you stand out for all the right reasons.

Wondering why?

5 reasons your closet needs a little black jumpsuit 

  1. Utility: A little black jumpsuit will go the distance! Dress it up or dress it down; your accessories determine the formality. Count this among those rare garments that look equally at home for casual dinner dates AND black tie events. I styled this rather simply, opting for neutral earrings and shoes. But it would look lovely with a bright shoe and bag too!
  2. Comfort: Some people say jumpsuits are socially acceptable pajamas. They’ve got it right! Little black jumpsuits are easy, breezy and forgiving. Most have a bit of stretch to them.
  3. Super figure-flattering: There’s a reason many fashionistas gravitate toward black. It makes you look longer, leaner and oh-so-chic. As a petite gal, I find that little black jumpsuits visually extend my leg line, making me appear much taller than my 4’11 inch frame.
  4. Works in all kinds of weather: I love an LBD as much as the next girl, but I HATE being cold. Unlike a little black dress, the LBJ protects your legs. Throw a cute jacket or sweater on top, and you are all set for an evening of al fresco dining or a night time stroll.
  5. Makes an impact: In a sea of dresses, a little black jumpsuit is guaranteed to capture attention. Its simplicity shows confidence and allows you, rather than your clothes, to be the focus. Dare to be different!

The dramatic neckline of this jumpsuit captured my attention immediately. I’m a sucker for anything with a ruffle! I was so excited to share this one with you, however I snagged this on the sale rack at H&M, so it’s already out of stock. Things move so quickly at that store!

Thankfully, there are LOTS of other amazing budget-friendly options I can share with you. First, let’s start with some Amazon finds. These 4 pieces are getting great reviews and work well for petites!
