Jumping in to Jumpsuits

After experimenting with the relaxed trouser (see here and here) I have turned my eye to jumpsuits, which to be quite frank is completely out of my comfort zone. My friend and i were discussing how playsuits (the short variety) feel kind of odd on and make me look (feel?) like Sponge Bob square pants.. Not a look i would be generally aiming for.
But the jumpsuit has been catching my eye more and more of late and i feel myself wanting to try this trend. But what do i go for? Plain black or patterned. Sleeves  or no sleeves..
I really think this may be one of those items that will need a trying on session to see the fit and how i feel in them.
So far these are my favourites..

To me the black is the safer option. I really like the idea of throwing on a black jumpsuit, some statement heels and a gorgeous necklace and heading out the door. Simple, easy but effective.
I know i may be over thinking it here but i wonder if less material on top ie straps rather than full on sleeves and closed in neckline, would look a bit more flattering on me, raising the eyes up away from my bottom heavier pear shaped parts.
Having said that number 2 is probably my complete favourite.
Then I've thrown in a few cute options, especially the red tropical print as wild cards. Can you picture golden sandals and a beach wavy hair and that looks like a grat summer evening outfit to me.

Do you own a jumpsuit and do you have any great tips on where to get one?
Or are they a big No-No to you?



I love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for commenting :)
