Striped Jumpsuit Style

When it’s hot outside and you’re getting ready for a day or evening out, you want something that is striking yet comfortable. I recently found this black and white striped jumpsuit from Lemlem at Accompany US online store and had to share! How fun is this piece? Not only is it light and comfy, but the striking design makes it a total statement piece. Plus it has pockets - can’t beat that! Made in Ethiopia, this handwoven piece is made by local artisans with fair trade standards.

Of course, you want to combine this stunning jumpsuit with a pop of color: these Fire Red Strappy Sandals from Poppy Barley will definitely do the trick. Made by artisans in a small, fair trade factory in Mexico, these sandals are high-quality and support sustainable shoemaking practices. A fun tote can offset the vertical stripes and the pop of color the shoes provide. This fun pineapple tote from Passion Lilie is a great option. Tie it all together with some funky sunglasses from Peep Eyewear. These pink retro shades are made with gold accents and a solid frame. Peeps rescues vintage frames and gives them new life, so you can rock a piece that has an amazing history.  

Not only will you look supremely fashionable; you’ll also be very comfortable! The soft cotton of this jumpsuit and the handcrafted leather shoes mean you’ll be ready for a hot day or a full night of dancing. These pieces can also be combined with other items in your closet for a very customizable, reusable look.
