One fact about me: I am very, VERY picky about jumpsuits. Despite wearing jumpsuits a few times on this blog, I've only kept two jumpsuits in my closet (a grey striped one and this loose, flowy black jumpsuit that's my absolute favourite), and have gotten rid of the rest. I haven't bought any in years, really.

Until I saw this grey checked jumpsuit, that is, and my lust broke through my willpower. My guess as to why it happened: it has a blazer-like front at the top. You guys know I'm a sucker for blazers! I mean, that has to be the reason.

The main reason I don't go for jumpsuits: most of them just have an awkward fitting on me. You'd think long-sleeved jumpsuits would totally be my jam as a hijabi, but, nope; I struggle with finding good jumpsuits that suit my style because most of them are generally not modest enough for me around the hip and bottom area.

I love seeing women confidently strutting around the fashion week scenes in figure-hugging jumpsuits though, so I suppose I usually just live vicariously through those women most of the times.

But with this "blazered", checked jumpsuit, with a less fitted silhouette as a result of going a size up, I'm fine over here pretending I'm part of the street-stylers crowd.

Are you a fan of jumpsuits yourself?
Perhaps you too, find some most jumpsuits awkward, like myself?
