The jumpsuit has to be one of my favourite wardrobe staples – it’s the item I turn to on days when I want to look like I’ve made an effort when in fact I’ve missed all four alarms and haven’t had time to put an outfit together, and it’s what I reach for when a dress feels a little too ‘dressy’. They’re perfect for the summer with sandals, and they’re perfect for the winter with trainers or boots, layered over a long sleeve tee or worn with a chunky knit thrown over the top.
I’ve added a couple of new ones to my collection this summer, but my obsession with the classic one piece and versatile holiday playsuit continues, so I’ve pulled together some of my favourite here, along with a selection of accessories to show you how I’d style them!
When it comes to bold prints, I love to keep it simple and pair them with neutral accessories and fabrics; think straw bags, espadrille sandals and natural nude and brown hues to let the print of the jumpsuit really do the talking! If you’d rather go bold with the accessories though, its a great idea to stick to a block colour jumpsuit such as this gorgeous Warehouse* navy number, then style it up with bright accessories in clashing colours.
Three of my current favourite trends to wear are stripes, spots and pastels, so it will come as no surprise that the above three jumpsuits are some of my favourites in this whole post! I love the multi coloured stripe jumpsuit, and to style this I would definitely pick out some of the bright colours such as hot pink and mustard yellow, and wear accessories in these shades for a fun, bold look. When it comes to the navy polka dot one, I’d clash classic reds and yellows to take it from something very formal, to a look that is more fun and youthful. With the pink pastel number, I’d pair things back with soft pinks, blues and nudes for a more classic, subtle look, perfect for a summer wedding!
Another huge trend this season is checks, and I LOVE the picnic blanket check of the first jumpsuit here. I’d pair this with red accessories and a red lip for a nod to 50s pin up style. For a more subtle check, the little gingham blue playsuit also has a vintage vibe to it which is so sweet for holidays – I’d add a straw colourful bag, some statement earrings and some gingham flats to mirror the print. Or if checks just aren’t your thing, this classic black and white stripe jumpsuit is perfect to take you from day to night and will go with any colour!
Now for the neutrals! Stripes don’t have to be super loud and bright, which is why I love the adorable striped playsuit, which is absolutely perfect for holidays! I love this for daytime, but it would look just as good paired with some wedges and a straw bag for balmy summer evenings. The camel coloured jumpsuit is another one of my favourites and one I would 100% style with white trainers and huge shades, but I think it would look just as good with some colourful heels for evening too! If you love neutral shades but still want something that’s a little more interesting, this bold spot jumpsuit is the one for you, perfect teamed with gold accessories and clashed with leopard print if you’re feeling brave!
My final three favourites are all little playsuits that just scream summer! These are so easy to style for summer days or nights. The first one is a gorgeous long sleeve floral print, great for transitioning through to the Autumn months too. I’d clash this with bold orange accessories and really have fun with colour. Then there’s a stunning one shouldered playsuit which would just be perfect for a night out paired with jade green accessories and a gorgeous sun tan! And finally, one of my favourite styles right now, a bardot playsuit. These are amazing for summer and showing off bronzed shoulders. I’d team this red striped one with neutral accessories, and a spot of animal print for good measure!
I hope you liked my picks here and you found some inspiration on how to style jumpsuits and playsuits. I can’t wait to wear mine on our honeymoon now, and will be taking my own tips with me to Cuba!
