These No-Fuss Jumpsuits Are The Perfect Dress Alternative

These No-Fuss Jumpsuits Are The Perfect Dress Alternative

It took me twenty-four years and one wave of sartorial distress to finally realise I had a problem.

The scene: A stressful morning; my overflowing wardrobe; clothes spilling to the floor; a mountain of outfit options; and me – unable to muster up even an ounce of sartorial creativity to get me out the door. It was then that I realised my affliction was ?outfit overthinking?, and I needed a solution,’stat.

So I rediscovered the jumpsuit: the clothing equivalent of a microwave dinner – an easily digestible solution to my problem that requires no preparation time at all. And the jumpsuit is versatile too: pair a wide-leg all in one with white trainers for during the day, and amp up the wow factor with a slinky number like the Topshop one below for an ultra-feminine after-hours vibe – perfect for night. So why not fill your wardrobe with jumpsuits for every occasion, because we all need one less thing to worry about.

Check out our high street edit of the best jumpsuits, for both day and night, below.
