The “All-Day Jumpsuit” that lives up to its name
ALL DAY LONG.
A lot of clothes are marketed as being “the perfect piece to take you from day to night,” but not all of them live up to that hype. Whether your life demands a lot of day-to-night action or not, this jumpsuit from Encircled has lived up to the promise of something that can transition from professional to relaxed to glam and keep you comfortable the from sunup to sundown.
It may sound cliche, but it’s true.
This jumpsuit passed my ultimate comfort test: when I came home from work and found the package at my door, I put on the jumpsuit and (after marveling over the flattering fit) refused to take it off until bed. In fact, I almost slept in it.
It isn’t surprising that this piece feels like pajamas when you realize that it’s made from the same four-way stretch fabric that Encircled uses for their popular Dressy Sweatpants. This fabric has a slight sheen which gives it an elevated look that can hold its own on any day of the work week, not just on casual Friday.
The day after I received this beauty, I wore it to the office for an extra long work day that was followed immediately by dinner out with friends at a trendy bar. I paid close attention to how I felt in both settings, and I can honestly say from experience that this is one of those transitional pieces that feels perfectly appropriate no matter where the day may lead.
Styling + Fit
The wide waistband, box pleats, tailored fit, tasteful neckline and subtle v in the back make this a truly classic fit for women of all ages. The waistband isn’t constricting at all, but it nicely pulls in the silhouette in a flattering way. I have an extremely long waist and wide hips which makes good jumpsuits tricky to find, but this fits like a glove.
And, yes, it has pockets. (* angels sing *)
Check out Encircled's admirable code of ethics and manufacturing practices on their website. It would take me a dozen blog posts to share all the ways this brand is getting it right. I respect them deeply and value their commitment to ethics and sustainability.
WHO SHOULD BUY THIS
This piece was designed with versatility in mind, so there are a lot of different lifestyles it would be great for. Specifically, it is a wonderful option for working women to wear to the office without sacrificing comfort. I think this also is a fabulous item for those who travel often and in various climates since it looks great on its own or paired with warmer layers.
WHO SHOULDN'T BUY THIS
If you are bothered by having to get mostly naked anytime you need to pee, then think twice before purchasing this item! Encircled also offers a two piece jumpsuit for those who want something easier to slip on/off during the day. Additionally, those who desire colorful prints in their wardrobe might not be excited by the neutral color options of black or grey.
NOTES ON SIZING
I am wearing a size small and am 5' 8" 135 lbs. wearing a size small. I will likely get the bottom hem taken up slightly because I prefer an ankle-cropped fit, but the length feels like it would be excellent for those with longer legs than mine! Encircled offers this item in size small to XXL.
I was compensated by Encircled for my work of styling, photographing, editing and writing about their new product.
