This is one of those throw-it-on, super comfy and casual outfits. But without jeans.
[Reading time: 2 minutes]
At the risk of alienating about 90% of my audience here(!), most people’s everyday jeans – despite denim being available in many colours – tend to be blue, blue or blue, sometimes black, or blue. And that’s kinda boring if you wear them on a regular basis. I’m sure most jeans fans would admit that the majority of their denims are shades of blue… No? Just me then.
The trouble with always wearing jeans when doing casual (which I tend to do most days, at least during the week when working), is that you always have that block of denim blue. (Or black.) And I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a little tired of that repetitive block of the same neutral colour in all my casual outfits day in, day out.

Therefore, having some super comfy pieces that are not at all denim-y are great because you can go all-out with the colour, and no one’s the wiser that you’re just in regular comfies.
Enter the orange jumpsuit. Or ANY block-colour jumpsuit of your choice.
(Just not denim or black pleeeeeeease)
I guess the idea is to get us out of our comfort zones when doing casual/comfy dressing. Like “jeans and a nice top” for going out, “jeans and a t-shirt” is fine for half the time you’re doing casual – but why not switch it up and get your colour game on for the other half?
Jumpsuits are PERFECT for a throw-on outfit, probably more so than jeans, because the top half is already taken care of.
I’ve worn my orange jumpsuit maaaaaany times IRL, but unfortunately I couldn’t find enough times that it appeared on the blog to do a “5 Ways to Wear” on it. (Sowee. But you CAN see it first worn on the blog here.)
To keep the casual vibes I stuck with trainers, but these gifted JD Williams rose gold trainers* are CRAZY comfy and I love the contrast of Dad Trainers style and pretty soft pinks and metallics. Then threw on a longline pink jacket* (also kindly gifted by JD Williams) and my very old baseball cap.
So there we have it: Casual dressing, but make it fashion. 😉
