Milder climates during the so-called winter months leaves one with this beautiful Diane von Fürstenberg jumpsuit as an option for so many occasions.  One could wear this jumpsuit to lunch with the ladies, shopping, or to various daytime meetings.  I also think it is a perfect island vacation outfit.  It can be worn on the airplane so that you arrive in style.  The jumpsuit is perfect for beachside romantic dinners  or daytime shopping excursions.  It is a very versatile piece that can be worn either in daytime or evening depending on the way its accessorized.

The accessories that I have chosen for the jumpsuit in the above collage are for an evening look.  For a daytime look, I would have chosen wedge shoes or flats and a more casual bag.

For the evening look, I selected the Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik pumps in neutral colors so as not to draw focus away from the jumpsuit. Instead, choose either of these pumps to complement the jumpsuit instead of taking away from its beauty.  I also chose two neutral evening bags or clutches.  I personally prefer the Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Knot Minauadiere because it has more visual interest.  Of course, either bag goes with either pair of shoes as all the accessories are neutrals.

This white jumpsuit is a perfect way to brighten your winter whether you live in a warmer climate, are visiting warmer temperatures, or are experiencing warmer temperature where you live.  It is a conversation piece that your friends, family, and maybe some strangers, will love!

I adore this Alexander McQueen kimono that I found while perusing NeimanMarcus.com!  I absolutely love the Japanese and Asian cultures so when I find a piece that pays homage to these cultures, I just have to have it!  Alexander McQueen has outdone itself with the abstract floral print kimono both in its practicality and luxury.

I chose the Jimmy Choo pump because I wanted a pop of color at the feet.  Of course, you could wear black as well, but I love these Jimmy Choo Hoops Lace-Up Leather Pump because they are almost as interesting as the kimono itself.  I created this outfit to be a conversation piece and no boring pump was going to do!

I love both the Givenchy and Manolo Blahnik clutch evening bags.  Either one would go beautifully with the kimono because neither one would overshadow it.

This outfit is perfect for the symphony.  It’s also perfect for an upscale party to benefit the symphony, ballet, or a charity.  You would certainly be the talk of the party in this ensemble.  The number of occasions for this outfit are limitless as it is so stylish, you’ll want to wear it everywhere!

When putting pieces together, think about where you want them to standout. Like in the outfit above, the kimono and shoes take center stage while the clutches (either one) take a back seat.  You may find a more neutral outfit where you want to showcase your bag instead.  Other outfits demand that your shoes be on display.  Take each piece separately and determine its place within in the outfit.  That is the best way to not overdo it.
