The Little Black Jumpsuit

Just as the little black dress is a must in every woman’s closet, so is a little black jumpsuit! Start with this easy-to-wear solid black jumpsuit from Ann Taylor. The lightweight stretchy fabric is super comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle and is machine washable. I adore the short sleeves, the jewel neckline and the medium wide legs. This jumpsuit is totally appropriate wherever you go and you can wear it to a wide variety of occasions from casual and sporty and conservative to elegant. It will work for the office and business events, too. The waistband is stretchy elastic with a looser fit and without too much volume which makes it perfect for women over 40.
