Style Rx: Eva Mendes's Jumpsuit Suffers From a Fatal Accessories Overdose

Posted on

Felipe Ramales/Pacific Coast News

Who: Eva Mendes

Where: Visiting N.Y.C.’s Museum of Modern Art

Diagnosis: Major accessories OD. When done right, a jumpsuit can be fun and sexy. When bogged down with a wide belt, shiny booties and a quilted clutch — all in clashing shades — the look is D.O.A. If someone as gorgeous as Eva Mendes can’t resuscitate this ensemble, it’s clear that it desperately needs a style surgeon.

Prognosis: Keep the jumpsuit but excise all the accessories. Because the jumpsuit is busy enough on its own, pull hair into a ponytail to eliminate visual clutter. Add barely-there strappy sandals (like this $99 Guess pair), a slim but interesting belt (we love this studded Gorjana style) and streamline that clutch (maybe a simple gold number, like this $100 Kate Spade New York?) for a look that’s turning heads for the right reasons.
