Cameron DiazThat danged Cameron Diaz can wear just about anything and get away with it.

Witness, for example, this dressy black pantsuit she wore to the Bad Teacher premiere in Berlin.

Y'all know I hate pantsuits/jumpsuits/playsuits/rompers. But Cameron had me thinking that maybe, just maybe, I could pull one off.

Then I started looking for a similar one. The good news is, I found a few that are affordable and cute!

The bad news is, I found a lot of FUGLY jumpsuits that have me eager for this look to go by the wayside ASAP.

Keep reading and I'll show you some jumpsuit dos and don'ts ...






Macy'sDo choose a jumpsuit with a well-defined waist and wide leg. This AGB Jumpsuit (Macy's, $54) would be flattering on a range of figures.


Neiman MarcusDON'T ever wear a jumpsuit that you might also buy for your toddler, like this hideous Rick Owen Silk Jumpsuit (Neiman Marcus, $892 on sale).


Forever 21DO check trendy discount stores to get this look for less. This halter jumpsuit (Forever 21, $27.80) is a great price -- which is good, because in a season or two, you won't be caught dead in it.


American ApparelDON'T opt for a see-through jumpsuit, like this monstrosity (American Apparel, $36). Not even if you're a stripper. Your tips will go waaaaay down in this thing, particularly if you pair it with granny panties as this model did.


ASOSDo consider a dressy version as an alternative to the LBD, if you like this look. This Warehouse Luxe Jumpsuit (ASOS, $165.49 on sale) is oh so Cameron.


ZapposDon't choose a jumpsuit (Zappos, $57.895) that highlights your trouble areas.


TorridAnd for the love of God, DON'T go anywhere near a stretch denim jumpsuit (Torrid, $68.50) ...


Arden BNo matter what size you are. This stretch denim jumpsuit (Arden B, $49.99 on sale) is another major fashion DON'T.

Are we cool?

I was just thinking the other day, "some people look so cute in jumpsuits I wonder if I could pull them off........"  Then I thought of the saying, "if you wore it when it was last popular you are too old."  Well, when I was around 5 or so my sister and I wore cute jumpsuits so I guess that kicks me out - plus I'd likely be a 'don't'!!!

Some of them look cute, but I don't think I could pull it off either.

You have to be built like a supermodel to pull it off, so for everyone else whose names are not Gisselle or Cameron we should stick to pants! lol
