This Is Summer's Answer to the Throw-On-and-Go Jumpsuit

·2-min read

If there's one item of clothing I recommend more than any other, it has to be the jumpsuit. Regardless of body shape or age, it's something that can really enhance your wardrobe, in terms of cool factor, versatility and dressing ease. I wear my utility jumpsuits all year round (my favourites are from M&S, Gap and Mango), but when it comes to high summer, I replace my long-sleeved iterations with playsuits.

Coming in wide range of prints, silhouettes and finishes, just like the jumpsuit, playsuits will adapt seamlessly to your taste and lifestyle. Like the boilersuit look? There are plenty of utility-style playsuits from brands such as Gap, Free People and & Other Stories. If you prefer a softer style (great for future beach trips and sunbathing in the park), prioritise smocked detailing, trapeze fits and adjustable belting. I also recommend checking out online vintage stores for chic '50s and '60s originals (I've included a few in my edit below).

When it comes to styling, playsuits couldn't be simpler. They will look the part with pretty much any pair of sandals you own, but I will personally be throwing on my trusty Birkenstocks for easy weekend dressing. My personal highlights? It has to be & Other Stories' linen-blend romper, Sara Battaglia's buttoned-up playsuit (which gives excellent Sound Of Music vibes) and Nasty Gal's statement-collar white playsuit.
