Traditionally worn by skydivers, Formula
One racers and small children, the jumpsuit has made its way onto the catwalks
over the last few years. Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Eva Longoria
are all fans of the fashion forward look. But if you’ve invested in some of the
playsuits and jumpsuits at Very, what should you be doing to ensure you’re
rocking the look?
Firstly, adapt your outfit to the season. During the cooler months, team a bright playsuit with a blazer jacket, black, high denier tights and cute pumps for daywear and patent heels for the evening. This is perfect for those blustery days when the perils of wearing a dress are all-too-obvious for us ladies. A playsuit will avoid those awkward moments and mean that you don’t have to spend your days holding down your skirt.
And we all know that a good outfit can be accessorised for all seasons. As soon as it’s warm enough, ditch the tights for some fake tan and super high wedges. A cardigan and heavy statement jewellery will finish off your spring or summer look and help you embrace the youthful element of the playsuit. Perfect for the poolside, shopping with friends or a sunny date, this look will always be a winner.
So, when can a jumpsuit go wrong? Avoid a full-legged jumpsuit if it comes in orange; you’ll look like you’re an extra on Prison Break. In fact, be wary of long-legged jumpsuits if patterned, too, for the same reason you’d never wear a patterned top and trouser set. Floral or patterned looks will have a great effect in a playsuit, because your legs break it up a little. Avoid a jumpsuit if you’re tall, since it’s likely to end up being too tight as a result of your longer torso or the legs will swing round your ankles. For the tall ladies out there, your long legs will look fabulous making their way out of a playsuit or go for the tall maxi dresses collection.
Now wardrobe staples for fashionistas all over the world, the jumpsuit and playsuit are fabulous ways to show off your
playful and glamorous side in one look.
