I’ve been all about the jumpsuit the past few seasons, as it’s an effortless way to put together a stylish outfit and without any fuss—perfect for someone who spends their days dressing others, so I don’t want to spend a lot of time on my own outfit. It’s really one of the most easy and believe it or not, versatile pieces.

The jumpsuit is also starting to become more of a classic wardrobe piece than a trend lately. I think I now own more variations on the design than I can count in my closet and even Phillip Lim is bringing the design as a perennial statement for men each season now.

I styled this chambray jumpsuit for Lands’ End’s Apostrophe quarterly magazine and instantly fell in love with it, so I’ve been waiting for it to finally be warm enough to wear. Obviously I couldn’t wait much longer, and as you can see, I finally broke it out this past weekend.

I left Brooklyn on Saturday for a quick weekend trip and it was nearly 80 degrees at home, but a 4 hour car ride to New England later, it was a chilly 50 degrees. Luckily I packed a sweater, leather jacket and lightweight scarf in my overnight bag and layered it all up over the jumpsuit. Voila! It became a whole other look.

Just by adding some layers, you can easily figure out how to wear a jumpsuit now and later in the season when it’s consistently warmer you’ll feel like you have a new item in your wardrobe. Even better, you can dress it up with heels and a blazer for an evening look. Now you know why jumpsuits are my go-to and especially travel wardrobe staple. Now how will you wear yours first?

In addition to the 70’s trend that we’ve been seeing all over the runways to the real life way for this season, graphic black and white is also trending this spring. I came up with the concept after noticing that many of the collections had much of this as a focus and it was a perfect blend of futuristic shapes and a subtle throwback to the 70’s, with wide legged pants and stacked heels. We shot this back in November at Nashville based photographer, Mark Delong’s studio, where he mimicked the shapes in the clothing both in real life and in post. We all joked that the beautiful long haired Terese resembled quirky singer Sia in her choppy wig, but luckily we saw more of her face than the elusive singer.

STYLIST TIP: This spring, go bold and take some of these graphic black and white elements into your look for an update to a classic style. Look for new shapes and silhouettes that are a refreshing twist to this perennial style. Don’t be afraid to mix prints—especially when it’s in black and white tones, it’s hard to mess this one up!
