Jumpsuits made of light, flowy material are becoming a warm weather staple. If you’re dreading go out this summer in jeans because it’s simply too hot, meet your new best friend. A jumpsuit allows you to pull off the pants look in hot temperatures without having to combust.

A deep v-neck, as Givenchy shows, is just the thing to give a plain black jumpsuit that ‘wow’ factor that makes it an appropriate choice for a cocktail party or a soiree of dancing. If you’re hesitant about trying a jumpsuit because of the ‘puffing’ effect it may have on your midsection, just grab your favorite wide belt and use it to cinch the garment at the waist. Stick to a dark color palette, which is the route Forever21 took with the look-a-like jumpsuit pictured below, or go for a bright color that will pop–the choice is yours.

The final element–some super strappy black platforms to show off your bright summer pedicure.
