Update your denim collection with a denim jumpsuit. You won’t regret it


by Marie Kelly
26th Jan 2019

Yes, I said jumpsuit. Now, don’t be afraid. Wearing a denim jumpsuit is a far less daunting prospect than it first appears. They used to scare the life out of me, until I found “the one”. I had stopped looking as it happens, thinking they just weren’t made to be worn by a 40-odd-year-old woman. I was over it. I’d decided I didn’t want one anyway. I was happy as I was. Then I walked into Mango on Oxford Street in London, and there it was, hanging inconspicuously across a crowded shop floor.

The attraction was instant. It had everything I didn’t know I was looking for in a denim jumpsuit. It was tailored, it had wide legs, it was a sophisticated indigo hue… I could go on. I tried it on for size and it made me feel like I was six feet tall. We left the shop together that day and I haven’t looked at another one since.

The trick to finding the right denim jumpsuit is not to rush into it. This trend is going nowhere so just sit tight. Weigh up all your options and go with the one that gives you “that feeling”. It will be worth the wait.

In the meantime, here’s some inspiration to whet your appetite.
