JUMPSUITS ARE your modern solution to easy fussfree dressing. These all-inone ensembles are your casual and more versatile alternative to a dress and especially fabulous for those you don’t like flashing a bare leg. Although I often receive comments from my husband such as “where’s my parachute?” and “why are you wearing a babygro?”, my jumpsuits have been a godsend in taking me from office to evening socials with just a change of shoes. Plus they’re super flattering and comfytoohowevertheycansometimes be a challenge to take on and off.
If you’re less than 5 foot 3, the only way you’ll carry off this look without looking like a mini Ghostbuster is with a pair of heels. Height is absolutely essential to lengthen the leg and pull off the look.
Contrary to what you may think, jumpsuitscanbewornbywomenof all ages. Tailored designs in dark shades look best on older figures while hip young things look great in coloured and tropical designs that are more trend-led, playful and perfect for this time of the year.
Jumpsuits are arguably becoming the latest wardrobe staple amongst the fashion-led and A-listers alike. Whether you’re a fan or not, they’re here to stay for A/W 14 too. So, why not give them a try before the change of season?
