I'm Lovin' This Onjenu Jumpsuit!
Without a doubt, when I opened the package containing this bird print jumpsuit from London-based brand Onjenu, it instantly became one of my favourite pieces of the summer. I was already super excited to try something from their line - they make the kind of clothes I love to wear. Their website is awash with lovely prints and colors, and their dresses, jumpsuits, and separates are cut specifically to fit and flatter the female form with stretchy, breathable fabrics that feel great on the body.
I usually shy away from jumpsuits; I find that they're usually made with someone slightly shorter and less long-waisted in mind. However, this specimen proved me wrong. There is enough stretch inherent in the design to make it fit and flatter, yet drape beautifully where it needs to. The waist is very cleverly gathered, culminating in the focal part being smack-dab in the center of your natural waist, the smallest part of your midsection. The deep, plunging v-neck gives it a glamorous, 70's vibe that's 50% Mrs. Roper and 50% Studio 54. Which is awesome. But the best part of all? This jumpsuit does not have a single snap, button, or zipper on it. It is created simply by clever draping and design, and the use of a fabric that does all the work for you. It is beyond comfortable to wear - to the point where I was considering doing this post entirely in yoga poses to prove my point. However, it's tourist season here in Scotland, and if I start doing headstands in the middle of the road, I'll likely end up as a hood ornament for a tour bus. Albeit a hood ornament in an awesome jumpsuit.
Onjenu is just four years old, and already is garnering a lot of buzz. They have been featured in magazines such as Glamour and Good Housekeeping, and allegedly Helen Mirren, the High Priestess of Looking Awesome at Any Age, is a huge fan. I can totally see why.
