WHAT IS IT?
The Velvet Surplice Jumper from Seven7, the fashion line by Melissa McCarthy. Yes, that Melissa McCarthy.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
In case you haven’t noticed, jumpsuits are having a major moment right now.
This particular design is simple yet chic, not to mention versatile. Black is the ultimate basic, you know.
WHERE CAN I WEAR IT?
Wherever you damn well please!
Because it's velvet and long-sleeved, this little number mightn't be ideal for a sweltering summer day — but on a cooler evening and the colder months, it'll be perfect for dinners, parties, nights out on the town, you name it.
WHAT WOULD I WEAR IT WITH?
There's plenty of room for creativity here. Keep things simple with metallic gold or silver accessories, or offset the black with some brightly coloured shoes and jewellery.
IT LOOKS GREAT ON THE MODEL BUT WHAT ABOUT ON A REGULAR WOMAN?
This jumpsuit is available in a huge variety of sizes — in designing her range, Melissa McCarthy was determined to give women a chance to find their style regardless of the number on their clothing tags.
In other words, it's designed to look great on all kinds of bodies.
WILL IT DATE?
No way. Black is classic.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
$139 in US dollars, which equates to roughly $191 in Aussie dollars — plus shipping. So ordering a few items at once mightn't be a bad idea (perhaps your friends will want to go in on the shipping with you).
