There’s a huge jumpsuit trend going on right now – and it;s nothing to be afraid of! Jumpsuits and their shorter cousins, playsuits, seem to strike fear into the heart of some women, but they really shouldn’t.
They can be flattering, comfortable and stylish – there are all sorts out there, and celebrities just love them. Beyonce, Fearne Cotton, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Miley Cyrus and more have stepped out in the favourite all-in-one style.
Once a relic of the 1970s, the jumpsuit trend has been around for a few years now, and look set to stay in fashion. So, here’s how to buy into the jumpsuit trend, easily and stylishly!
The first rule of buying a jumpsuit is to make sure it flatters your figure. Wide legs work for apple and pear shapes; tight legs tend to work better on slim, or athletic figures. Go for deep v necks or interesting necklines if you have a bust, or high necks for the smaller chested among us.
