Once a fashion statement, the jumpsuit has quickly become a closet staple. It’s chic, simple, and totally effortless – you don’t have to deal with the stresses of mixing and matching a top and bottom, which is especially ideal for those of us who like to hit snooze in the morning. “Jumpsuits and rompers are practical, comfortable, and a one-stop shop to a polished outfit,” says Sandy Jung, a Canadian stylist and blogger at Chic Stylings. (Though using the bathroom is admittedly still a struggle.)
“They appeal to those who want to dress stylishly yet quickly, without the need to think about coordinating multiple pieces.” You can wear them with heels, booties, or sneakers, depending on the occasion, and layer on a blazer or jean jacket to finish off the look in cooler weather. So, to inspire you to fill your fall wardrobe with one-piece outfits that are both work-appropriate and super easy to style for weekends, whether for brunch or dancing, here are the jumpsuits and rompers that top stylists can’t wait to get their hands on this season.
If there’s one piece of clothing that pretty much everyone has in their closet, it’s denim. Throughout the decades and fashion fads that come with, this staple remains, holding the very same importance as it always has. “In the 50s it was rebellion with James Dean, in the 60s it was flares and bell bottoms to go with the hippie movement, in the 70s it was very Americana, in the 80s it was all about designer jeans, and in the 90s baggy denim based on the fact that hip-hop and grunge were hot,” explains Jenny Applegate, Chicago-based personal stylist. “In the early 2000s, low rise, belly-baring denim was popular – with the terrible thong hanging out – and then skinny jeans became super popular based on new denim technology.”
Luckily, we’ve entered an age where the denim isn’t all that daring or disastrous, but rather relaxed, cropped, and vintage-inspired. “Today’s denim is anything but basic, and with skinny jeans becoming the trench coat of denim, they are no longer a trend,” explains Nicole Russo, stylist and founder of Let’s Get You. If you’re looking to upgrade your denim to reflect what’s hot right now, especially in time for fall, Russo recommends reaching for fashion-forward deconstructed styles, universally-flattering kick-flares or a new every day style in high-rise, straight-legged crops. “Anything with volume, whether in a wide-legged silhouette or mom-jean style rigid denim, is a safe bet for Fashion Week 2018,” she adds.

Changing your diet and the foods you keep around the house becomes much more complicated once you have kids, whose main food groups are bread, chicken nuggets, and fruit snacks. If you’re currently on the keto diet – whether alone or with your partner – keeping nonketo food in the house is definitely tempting (we always want what we can’t have!). Although it’s not recommended that you put your kids on the keto diet with you, there are plenty of snacks that are both kid- and keto-friendly that the whole family can enjoy.
Sure, you’ll probably still have the nonketo kid stuff around to ensure your kids are getting all the nutrients they need, but putting these keto snacks at the front of the cupboard means you’ll be a lot less tempted to eat Goldfish crackers out of your kids’ snack cups.
