Jumpsuits are always a popular choice on the high street at this time of year, when we are preparing for our holidays and the odd summery occasion. I would also say festivals, but jumpsuits are not exactly festival appropriate if you know what I mean.
Come May, the shop floors are packed with different styles, including playsuits (the shorter version) and this year we also have the culotte version in line with the return of our primary school favourite. To get you the best bargains, and to provide you with the best style inspiration from celeb-land, we've put together our favourite styles of jumpsuits to help you decide if this is a summer trend worth embracing!
Up first it's the gorgeous Rumer Willis who I completely adore thanks to her personal style that is inspired by no one except her personality. She wears what she wants and it's her edginess that is applied to her red carpet style that keeps me intrigued. Rumer keeps her jumpsuit dark and sophisticated with minimal accessories and slicked back hair. And if you want to add a black jumpsuit to your wardrobe for a night out, then hop over to Littlewoods where we found this little gem for under €50.
Scar-Jo needs no introduction for her style; it's an innate quality she has when it comes to fashion. At the recent premiere of the new Avengers movie, Scarlett opted for a red and black printed wide leg jumpsuit which is flattering and not too overwhelming on her petite frame.
Printed styles are the most popular, and New Look have the largest selection; as well as channelling the culotte trend in this Missoni inspired piece (below right)
The warm weather alternative is the playsuit, as modelled below by Olivia Munn. Sadly the amount of playsuits with a cap or longer sleeve is in short supply this season but my current pick is from Next in a light geometric print which makes a refreshing change from all the florals we are currently seeing.
And when choosing a playsuit, keep the shorts nice and loose so that it looks like a mini skirt and pieces that have a defined waist to keep you in shade!
But what's your verdict on the all-in-one trend? Do we like or loathe?
