The jumpsuit is everywhere….and it’s popular for good reason. It’s comfy, easy to wear, stylish, and suits almost every body type. Having said that….I’m also a bit lazy, and the jumpsuit is a lazy girl’s best friend. Put it on, throw on a jacket….and poof…you have instant street cred. Every fashion “it girl” seems to be running around town looking casually chic in one, so really, what’s not to love? Decisions, that’s what. There are so many styles to choose from, how do we decide which style is best suited for mature fashionistas? What works for the “it girl” may not look so great on us.

Although there are seemingly endless variations of the jumpsuit out there at the moment, I prefer a slightly more structured style for fashionable women over 50. The shapeless cotton numbers look extremely cute and comfortable on twenty-somethings, but I think when you get to a certain age it’s best to steer clear of pieces that resemble our pajamas when venturing out into the world. Instead I prefer jumpsuits that have some shape to them, or some interesting detailing that adds an extra bit of flair. This is definitely the type of look that I can run around in all day and then throw on some dressier shoes and carry on into evening. Like I said, I’m lazy. Why waste time changing outfits when you could be having cocktails?

  1. LOVE this look!


  2. This is one of the few styles that I did in the 80s that I’m willing to revisit. I currently have three different ones and love them all. I pop on a cami under one, a short sleeved T under another and a jacket over the third. I work in an office and sometimes no one even knows that I’m wearing a “onesie”! The only challenge? Having to shrug it off to go to the toilet. Now THAT is a pain. Keep up the good work.

    I love the look, having said that I HATE bathroom visits and moreover I don’t really like the denim jump with the denim jacket. I think it would look much better with a contrasting shirt or jacket or whatever. However Senior Style always looks stylish and the shoes are 100% !!

      I had to laugh at this statement (by Senior Style Bible) ” Every fashion “it girl” seems to be running around town looking casually chic in one, so really, what’s not to love? ”

      I AGREE with you — re” bathroom visits. rotfl. I will NOT go back to pantsuits for this very reason.

      I have purchased matching pants and tops to make MY pantsuit-look.

    Agree re: bathroom visits — will forego actually purchasing a jumpsuit. However, I have a couple pants/top outfits that are almost identical to the jumpsuit. Will have to settle for that. I do love the look. Love your style sense.

    Love your blog. Love how you are so comfortable with discussing topics seniors/younger are wanting answers to. Keep up the great work you are providing.

    • Thanks so much Deedee! I must admit I was a bit nervous about the response I would get to the series on senior dating and sex but it was all very positive and obviously topics that needed discussion. Dorrie

    Love it, the jumpsuit and the fab shoes! xox


    • Thanks Pattti. The shoes are my new favorite and go great with denim. The stacked heel gives good balance with a heel height that adds those needed inches for me.

    I would definitely wear that denim jumpsuit – even if it does mean allowing a little longer for bathroom visits! I really like it with the denim jacket, and the shoes are perfect for it!
