summer jumpsuit TOFO | fabric inspiration

The summer jumpsuit TOFO is one of my favorite garments to wear. Jumpsuits have this perfect mix between super laidback and classy elegance that I just love. I can wear it lounging around the house or the beach, but I can also wear it out to drinks or a nicer dinner.

Really, summer jumpsuit TOFO will work well with a wide variety of fabrics as long as they’re not too heavy, or so light weight that your undergarments are on display. The two that I wear are in Tencel Twill from La Mercerie and Lagoon Broadcloth from Organic Cotton Plus. Both are fabulous! I think that the fabrics below (which include the two I just mention) would all make lovely TOFOs!
