With summer around the corner, the invites for garden parties, BBQs and formal occasions are piling up, but what to wear? Enter: the jumpsuit. What was once an occasion piece worn only by the brave has become a wardrobe staple. This year's jumpsuits come in the season's key prints, vibrant colours and with '70s inspired wide legs. From weddings to work, here are three ways to wear yours this summer.
Garden parties & BBQS
Navigate tricky dress codes with a hardworking jumpsuit that can be dressed up or down. We’re all about tropical prints this season and this version from Whistles (below) will work just as well with flat sandals as it will with sky-high heels. Add a straw handbag and some statement gold jewellery for a really summery feel.
Heading to your best friend’s wedding? Wide-leg jumpsuits are having a moment and are the perfect alternative to dresses. Go for a vivid design, then add wedges and your best summer accessories. And for those fancier affairs, invest in a statement fascintor in a soft blush pink.
Work to weekend
Jumpsuits aren’t just for special occasions; dress them down for work by adding trainers or flat sandals. We're a little bit in love with this blue style by Jigsaw (below), which will be perfect with a denim jacket thrown over the shoulders and box-fresh white trainers. When it comes to a Saturday night on the town, swap for a leather jacket and heeled mules - the season's comfiest shoe.
