Four Reasons To Add A Jumpsuit To Your AW Wish List

Four Reasons To Add A Jumpsuit To Your AW Wish List

They’re a bit scary, certainly, but believe me, the trickiest thing?about a jumpsuit is managing the frequency of your trips to the WC (it helps if you invest in a zip rather than button-back style1). Jumpsuits are actually a wonderful investment buy?- they’re sophisticated, on trend and endlessly versatile. Here are four reasons why you should add a jumpsuit to your AW wish list.

They?can be as comfortable as pyjama suits, but easier to pull off.?Jumpsuits don’t have to offer high-octane glamour. This beautifully fluid wide-leg?piece from Zara, if paired with a cashmere hooded top and trainers,?is perfect weekend wear, but more chic than jogging pants and more comfortable than skinny jeans.?For evening, showcase the embroidered detailing, swap the fabric belt for?an embellished showstopper and wear with a pair of statement heels.

They?can double up as suits. Bored with traditional tailoring? Then take a look at this exquisite strapless all-in-one from Cos. The model is wearing it slightly oversized, but you don’t have to if you prefer a more fitted look. Throw a smart blazer over it (velvet would be beautiful), or for a’more innovative look, wear a crisp white shirt underneath it.

They’re a great day-to-night option.?This gorgeous sequin piece from H&M has a draped back and cut-out detail above the waist so is a real showstopper for evening time. But worn with a wool duster coat and ankle boots, it’s perfect for day – maybe not for the office, but certainly for lunch or drinks with friends at the weekend.

They bring modern drama to your look. This J Crew jumpsuit is’so unfussy, but the draped silhouette and tangerine hue are enough to catch anybody’s eye. For day, I’d pair this with a thin-knit polo-neck, and perhaps a cross-body bag to add a more utilitarian feel to the whole outfit. For evening, it needs nothing other than good grooming to make an electric impact.
