For joy

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?
