I fear my friends are being kind, so be brutally honest...

Does this look good, bad, awful? Too short? Too long? Too black, too boring? Too rectangular?

I like the jumpsuit. It's smart and It emphasises your very nice waist, not rectangular at all. I'm not too sure about the shoes. I think with the leg length an enclosed toe black shoe would create a longer line and be more flattering.

ShirleyPhallus Thu 07-Dec-17 22:01:32

Sorry but that’s not flattering at all. The trousers are too short, too baggy around the hips making you look bigger, and the metal circle thing is very 2002

You have a lovely figure and this looks really dated

The trousers don't fit as nicely as they could, I think. A bit too loose around the hips, and I think the bottom hemline should be a bit tighter around the ankles. If that makes sense....

RestingGrinchFace Thu 07-Dec-17 22:04:42

I wouldn't if I were you. The trousers sit very awkwardly around the cuff and the Sanford plus the goldbuckle thing are too much.

The top part is lovely on you but the trousers aren't elegant.

Ditch the belt or change for black with no gold.
Extend the leg with shoes of the same colour.
Long pendant
Chunky bangle or heavy dress rings

Casmama Thu 07-Dec-17 22:09:32

I think it looks a bit cheap and ill fitting. You have got a good figure and I think you could find something much more flattering.

MikeUniformMike Thu 07-Dec-17 22:12:09

I think it looks nice but you asking suggests that you don't.

SleepFreeZone Thu 07-Dec-17 22:13:02

My only issue is the shoes look like they are going to hurt you an hour or so into the night.

Littlechocola Thu 07-Dec-17 22:13:42

It’s shapeless and I feel it’s making you look frumpy.

AfterSchoolWorry Thu 07-Dec-17 22:15:34

I think it's too short and maybe too frumpy for you

Ohyesiam Thu 07-Dec-17 22:18:29

You've for a great figure, and you cab carry this off. It could be better cut though, but you can definitely wear it and look good.

This. And the shoes are wrong - as others have said, enclosed black shoes will make your legs look longer.

Sorry! You have a nice figure but this outfit does nothing for you.

Tojumpornottojump Thu 07-Dec-17 22:23:04

Tried it with my only closed toe black shoes. The buckle is silver and I can’t change it, it’s sown in.

It’s back in the bag with the return form filled in sad

Thanks though!

Clankboing Thu 07-Dec-17 22:24:41

I think it's lovely!

ShirleyPhallus Thu 07-Dec-17 22:25:23

To be fair, the top part looks ok so probably a wrap dress would look lovely on you?

What’s the occasion and can we help you find something?

AfterSchoolWorry Thu 07-Dec-17 22:26:04

Yeah, even the other shoes dont help. You're too young for it OP.

Ollivander84 Thu 07-Dec-17 22:26:46

No. But I think the v neck works well, so if you cut the photo off just under your boobs, that area looks fab. The middle bit is adding bulk and the trousers a bit short and too wide
I would look for a v neck one with slimmer cut to it

3boys3dogshelp Thu 07-Dec-17 22:27:50

I like it but I think it's a tiny bit too short in the leg for you, which is not particularly flattering. Wish I had your figure!

blue2014 Thu 07-Dec-17 22:31:13

Yep, send it back - you've got a lovely figure. Anything else would look loads better

Tojumpornottojump Thu 07-Dec-17 22:31:32

It’s for my Christmas night out. I have a similar black wrap dress, which is mid length and the one time i’ve worn it I felt that I looked like a brick shithouse!

The jumpsuit is shorter on the model, but I’m not quite 5ft 2, although this is the petite version.

Ollivander84 Thu 07-Dec-17 22:33:22

Ignoring the sequins and velvet (I'm trying to find an example!)
It's a bit in between leg shape wise

More fitted in the leg like this

Or a distinct wide leg like this

ShirleyPhallus Thu 07-Dec-17 22:39:17

LOVE the sequin jumpsuit!!!

At 5’2” I think the 70s vibe one would swamp OP but the sequin one could be gorgeous

Tojumpornottojump Thu 07-Dec-17 22:40:21

The sequin one is gorgeous, but it’s not going to be made for a short arse like me.
