Whether you need a new outfit for that summer wedding or for those evenings spent with a cocktail in hand in the hotel bar, a jumpsuit is an essential wardrobe staple for 2016. They’re lightweight, easy to wear and save you from suffering a meltdown choosing an outfit that goes together.
They’re a ready made outfit
Jumpsuits don’t require any other consideration but what shoes to pair with them, they’re a fully made outfit ready to go and this is what makes them great. And because they come in such a variety of styles, you can find one to suit you – from glamorous long sleeved styles to shorter versions for warmer days when you want to get your legs out.
They can be dressed up or down
Jumpsuits are so easy to wear for casual or formal events, it’s all about the material and the accessories. Jersey jumpsuits are great for everyday wear, with canvas trainers and denim jackets but they could be worked into an outfit for that party at the weekend or even a wedding with the right accessories. Costume jewellery and heels always dress up an outfit and this same rule applies when it comes to jumpsuits.
They’re super comfy
The baggier the jumpsuit – and most come in loose fits – the more BBQ food you can eat over the summer months, which is always a win. This also makes them great travel companions, long hours spent on an airplane are always made more comfortable in a jumpsuit – they’re essentially a socially acceptable onesie.
They suit everyone
There’s a jumpsuit out there for every body shape, style and preference when it comes to fit. Whether you want to go bold with a full on floral print or keep things classy with a black in all in one that could replace your little black dress, your favourite fashion store should have a plethora in stock for you to choose from.
They’re revamped each season
For summer expect to see plenty of printed jumpsuits and culotte styles, as high street stores tap into the latest trends. Culotte jumpsuits look amazing with Birkenstocks or canvas flats while printed styles are great for pairing with fringed sandals and a kimono for true festival chic. Spaghetti straps will be another common feature, as the 90s continues to make an impact on fashion designs for the season ahead.
Denim is making an impact
If your wardrobe revolves around which jeans you’re going to wear that day, then you’ll be pleased to hear that jumpsuits are also jumping on the denim bandwagon. A jumpsuit such as this one is a good example of what you can pick up and ticks all the 2016 trend boxes, style it with a denim jacket for the ultimate double denim ensemble – trust us, it’s back.
The jumpsuit should definitely be your go-to style this summer, for whatever occasion. Choose something that reflects your style, is easy to wear and ultimately makes you feel good.
