Get It For Way Less - Sunner Park Jumpsuit

A chic and modern alternative to the classic LBD is the LBJ - Long Black Jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit is usually a tricky item of clothing that conjures up horrific images of the dreaded camel-toe. However, when done correctly, the LBJ can be sleek, sophisticated and effortlessly sexy.

Check out these fantastic tips from StyleBites on how to find the right jumpsuit to suit your body type.

The Spring 2009 collections of Dries Van Noten, Collette Dinnigan, Stella McCartney and Sonia Rykiel all featured LBJs in a variety of styles.

This fab silk-charmeuse LBJ from Sunner features a high collared halter neckline, 4-snap closure at front, elasticated waist and wide pant legs.

For my more budget-conscious friends out there, I found an incredibly affordable alternative at Asos. While they are both very similar in design, the matte black jersey fabric of the Asos version seems to be more flattering and forgiving.

I love jumpsuits, I really shouldn't..but I do!

Oh, I loved hearing from you again! Well, jumpsuits are not really my kind of thing... Perhaps exactly because of the things that you mentioned in the second paragraph. But also because it's incredibly impractical - I mean, it takes ages going to the bathroom in that, doesn't it?
Keira Knightley rocked a long jumpsuit at the The Edge Of Love premiere in Edinburgh though.

if it's a certain style, paired with a belt, it could pass as a more professional look.

I'm a huge fan of jumpsuits. The only thing I can add about fit is for tall people like me which is that they are sometimes designed for people about 5'6" so they end up being to short in the torso and you end up not being able to pull them over your shoulders.

Happy New Years & have a great 2009!
