When Eloquii announced its collaboration with Reese Witherspoon’s brand Draper James, I was a little skeptical. Draper James is a notoriously southern-style brand, and well, my style never really reflects a southern feel. In fact, I make it a purpose to avoid southern or country styles. It looks adorable on many women, but I’m not a fan of it on me.
However, this Draper James for Eloquii Parrot Print Jumpsuit totally caught my eye. I got the chance to model the jumpsuit on WCIU’s The Jam Show, and after I stepped off set, I knew I couldn’t let the jumpsuit go. Although it’s from the Draper James collection, this piece totally fits into my personal style and life. Here’s why: Instead of boasting a southern flare, the jumpsuit looks more like resort wear and exudes tropical vibes. The garment is playful and fits my curves just right. It’s color scheme also helps me add more vibrance into my wardrobe, as most of my clothes are black. Like last summer, I am going to try and push my own boundaries when it comes to embracing more color and ditching my monochromatic look. So let’s start off spring on the right foot with this gorgeous jumpsuit, and hope that this sets the tone for the rest of the season!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in the Draper James for Eloquii Parrot Print Jumpsuit, which is my usual size, and the jumpsuit fits perfectly! There is not much stretch to this piece, but it does run true to size.
