Whilst dresses will always remain a staple of spring/summer dressing, for 2019 jumpsuits have seen a continued rise in popularity. No longer just for the fashion pack, women are now wearing jumpsuits and dresses interchangeably for lunch dates, business meetings, and even weddings and other formal occasions.
Jumpsuits are easy to wear, and the very definition of one step dressing. Just pop on a tailored jumpsuit and a pair of killer heels, and you’ll be ready for whatever the day has to throw at you. Not convinced? Here are our three favourite summer jumpsuits, the perfect wardrobe staples for any woman:
The Super Striped Jumpsuit
AX Paris Navy print culotte jumpsuit
We love this classic striped jumpsuit from SilkFred which is the definition of ‘work to play’ dressing. With a fitted linen blazer and classic court shoes, this piece is perfect for business lunches and meetings in the office. Add heels and a coordinating clutch and you’re ready for post-work cocktails, a dinner date, or even dancing the night away. Proof, if needed, that you really can wear a jumpsuit anywhere.
When opting for a wide leg culotte jumpsuit, it’s advisable to pair it with heels no matter the occasion. This will make your legs look longer and leaner, and create balance against the boxy shape of the jumpsuit, which can create a stout, square silhouette. Don’t be afraid to inject colour with your accessories if you want to add more personality to your outfit.
The Little Black Jumpsuit
AX Paris Black culotte pleated tie waist jumpsuit
If your trusty little black dress has been on one too many outings, then why not switch things up a bit and opt for a little black jumpsuit instead? Just like the versatile LBD, a black fitted jumpsuit can be worn for almost every occasion and is easy to dress up or down depending on the accessories you choose.
We love this version, thanks to its figure-flattering pleating and tie waist detail – ideal for creating an hourglass silhouette. From date nights to dinner parties, this jumpsuit will take you everywhere. Tap into this season’s maximalist accessory trend by pairing with oversized chandelier earrings or a vibrant jewel-encrusted necklace.
The Pretty Patterned Jumpsuit
AX Paris Aztec print tie waist jumpsuit
S/S 2019 is all about big and bold patterns. From leopard print to leaf print, polka dots to palm trees, this season’s print mantra is the bigger the better. Why not tap into this trend with a vibrantly printed jumpsuit in your favourite shades?
We love this Aztec print jumpsuit in muted earthy colours which are flattering on all skin tones. With a cinched in waist and crew neck, the simple shape of the piece allows the pattern to do all the talking. Keep accessories to a minimum and you’ll have an easy to wear an outfit that you can throw on and instantly shine: ideal for those days when you have no time, but still, want to make a big visual impact with your outfit.
