In exactly a week’s time, myself and Toby will be jetting off to Rome for a short city break for my birthday. This means I’ve spent the last few days panic buying clothes and I’ve noticed a lot of one pieces ending up in my basket. They’re just the easiest thing to wear and there’s literally a playsuit or jumpsuit for any occasion whether that’s a wedding, BBQ party or black tie event. So while I’m on that hype, I thought I’d write a post on why jumpsuits are the perfect summer staple and you need – at the very least – one in your wardrobe!
It’s basically your whole outfit sorted
My favourite thing about playsuits and jumpsuits is that there’s no fuss trying to find a top and bottoms because your whole outfit is basically sorted with one item of clothing. What more could you want when you’re lazy like me and just wanna throw something on and run out the door? Just find some shoes and a bag, maybe a pair of sunnies or some other accessory and Bob’s your uncle.
You can layer if it gets chilly
Living in Britain means summer consists of mainly clouds, wind and rain with a couple of sunny days thrown in occasionally. But no worries, you can throw a t-shirt on under a strappy jumpsuit or a jumper over the top to keep you warm. They’re just so perfect for any weather !
You can easily take your look from day to night
One of the best things about playsuits and jumpsuits is how versatile they are. There’s a print and style for every occasion and you can take your look from day to night so easily! In these pictures I’m wearing some casual Converse, sunnies and my beloved Mulberry with my spotty one piece but I could take it into the evening so simply with a red lip, some strappy heels and a clutch bag. Jobs a good’un!
Doesn’t take up much room in your suitcase
As I’ve said, I’m planning on taking a lot of playsuits and jumpsuits away with me to Rome and one of the best things about thinner, lighter ones is that they’re barely take up any room in your suitcase! I could probably get away with just hand luggage to be honest but then where would I put all my duty free shopping on the way back?!
If you’ve never ventured into the world of jumpsuits then now’s your chance! I swear, they make your life so much easier and look ab fab at the same time!
