Simplify spring dressing with the all-in-one option, as Amy Norbury checks out some of the most stylish jumpsuits around.
We’ve got a spring in our step because – hallelujah! – there’s a return to some semblance of normality on the agenda. As lockdown restrictions get set to ease further this month, garden parties are in, and popping out to the pub or going out for a meal is back on the cards. It’s great news – but it does sadly mean that it’s time for our beloved loungewear to take a back seat in favour of some stylish new looks.
If you’re out of practice when it comes to pulling together an outfit to go out-out, then never fear; spring’s hero wardrobe piece is here to leave you looking suitably stylish and perfectly polished in no time at all. All hail the jumpsuit.
A firm favourite across the SS21 catwalks, where the pandemic’s penchant for comfort dressing was still very much in evidence, we saw everything from utilitarian boilersuits at Max Mara and Stella McCartney, to Studio 54-style Seventies-inspired numbers over at Tom Ford and Balmain.
Night or day, work (from home) or weekend, the jumpsuit is the ultimate all-occasions wardrobe fix. Just choose your style, throw on and go – there really is no quicker way to feel dressed up and ready to rock.
For those of us who’ve got used to dressing for comfort over the past year, jumpsuits are a great transition back to the world of sartorial style, with relaxed fits and flattering cuts offering easy elegance – and perfect for hiding a multitude of lockdown sins.
Versatility is key too. Jumpsuits pair just as well with trainers for casual chic and flat sandals for summer vibes as they do with heels for evening – just add a bag and some statement jewellery and you’re night out-ready with minimal effort.
