Jump into Jumpsuits, Play in Playsuits!

Fashion can take itself all too seriously at times. When push comes to shove, it’s just clothes. Come the Apocalypse, who will care what anyone is wearing! But, hey, whilst the world still turns, why not enjoy fashion, and celebrate the frivolity of it all with some childlike fun fashion in the name of jumpsuits and playsuits!

No longer for the kids, we grown-ups are embracing our inner child, and pulling on a playsuit. Was there ever a more comfy yet stylish fashion item! As for jumpsuits, last count I had about eight – I’m obsessed with them!

My latest is this brilliant, slouchy yet stylish, toucan print number from H! by Henry Holland @ Debenhams, for £40.

Henry Holland jumpsuitYou could team this jumpsuit with flats, a denim jacket and a cross-body bag as done here for a casual look, or add heels, a jacket and a clutch for a dinner date or a night out.

Playsuits are the perfect throw-on summer musthave. Structured, they looks fantastic with heels, a cute bag, and if you’re off to a wedding, add a hat and a jacket, and you have an alternative to a dress.

A strappy playsuit is a suitcase essential on your summer holiday this year – perfect for the evening, or the day as beachwear. Choose on trend tropical prints or florals. Dungaree-style playsuits work with a bandeau top or a t-shirt or shirt underneath,

If it’s jumpsuits you like, then there are plenty to choose from, in lots of different styles; wide-legged, bandeau, strappy, structured.

Wide-legged jumpsuits look excellent with wedge heels or flat sandals – as long as the legs aren’t trailing on the ground! Bandeau styles are excellent holiday daywear. Strappy, tapered jumpsuits look excellent teamed with a heel, dressed up for the evening, or a wedge.

So, if it’s fun you want with your fashion, make like a child, and have a jump and a play in jumpsuits and playsuits!
