A Killer Black Jumpsuit (Plus 5 Must-Try L.A. Restaurants Worth Wearing It To)

An outfit made for having plans.

Living in L.A. means that on any given night, dinner can either mean casual activewear or an opportunity to get fully dressed up. Last night, I opted for the latter in an uncharacteristic move for a Monday, and wore this jumpsuit to a work dinner at Bavel, a favorite Mediterranean restaurant in the Arts District. It's an updated twist on the classic LBD (though it also comes in red!), with wide-leg pants that feel current with the folded neckline and waist. I added a pair of my favorite statement earrings, platforms, and a feminine lip for a look that would easily work at some of my favorite, must-try spots in L.A.:

1. Nightshade: Having opened just this month, this restaurant is already one of our office's favorites. Complete with a warm and tranquil interior, the menu boasts Chinese-inspired dishes such as Mapo Tofu Lasagna and Gochugaru. 
2. In Sheep's Clothing: Hidden within Lupetti Pizzeria, In Sheep's Clothing is an experience worth trying. Inspired by Japan's kissaten, this hidden gem plays vintage jazz while customers enjoy experimental whiskey cocktails. 
3. Blackship: Looking for something in West Hollywood? Go no further than Blackship, an Italian-Japanese spot specializing in pastas and cocktails. Try the Carbonara Ramen or Chicken Karaage Tortellini for a new twist on classic pastas.  
4. Woodspoon: This is not so much of a new restaurant but it is frequently talked about in our office—both Leslie and Kelly list it among their favorites in the city. The menu offers a plethora of Brazilian dishes, each rich in flavor and tradition, and the ambience in DTLA is great for a date night with G. P.S., Try the Croquettas and the Costelinha com Canjiquinha—they're a must. 
5. Ronan: This near-to-us restaurant is a nice surprise to add to our repertoire. Just a few months since opening, Ronan is already garnering a ton of attention for its intimate interiors and killer food. The shared plates style is fun for a night out where you just simply want to try it all. 

What I'm wearing: One Story Earrings, Cupcakes and Cashmere Jumpsuit, Gianvito Rossi Platforms, Laura Mercier Lipstick in 'It Girl'
