WHY A JUMPSUIT IS A SUMMER WARDROBE STAPLE

Monday, 23 July 2018





Don't get me wrong, I like summer, and the weeks of proper summer weather we've had this year have been a nice change from the usual drab and damp English weather. But.... who else actually feels way too lazy to do anything, or even to get dressed in this heat? I'm glad I'm on holiday from uni at the minute, because most days I just lay in bed in my underwear with a fan by my side, ice cream in hand, and a Netflix boxset to watch. On the occasions where I do have to leave my house and brave the heat, I'm often stumped on what to wear. Since walking around in my pants is sadly not socially acceptable, when it hits 30+ degrees and I have to leave the house, I'm usually wanting to put in as little effort into my outfit as possible. 

That's where the jumpsuit comes in. Or any one piece in fact. When I was asked what my summer style tips were by Warehouse*, this was one piece that immediately stuck out. Why? Because they give you endless options. Warehouse currently have the perfect collection of holiday playsuits and jumpsuits that can also give you a range of outfit possibilities once you're back from your travels, or if the weather starts to change and get cooler again. For colder days, wear a turtle neck or t-shirt underneath and immediately, you've created a new outfit. In the heat, well - jumpsuit sans anything else, and you're sure to be as cool as possible all day - opt for wide legs and floaty sleeves to maximise breeze potential (because is there anything better when a cool breeze hits the skin under your clothes as you walk in the heat?). And, if you're a busy lady with lots of places to go and lots of people to see, and you don't have time to change outfits, then take the jumpsuit from day to night - Trainers and an oversized straw bag in the day, strappy heel sandals and a clutch for the evening, and voila!  

To stay super on trend, I'd say opt for something with an exaggerated floor length wide leg. Pair with an oversized straw hat and huge cat eye sunnies - tres chic, non? That is a look that is sure to give 'on my yacht in Cannes vibes' even if you're deep in the overdraft, eating beans on toast for dinner, and walking through a small British town and not the South of France. If you're into your accessories, then pair the jumpsuit with a wide belt (think the gucci marmont) or this corset style to cinch in the waist and really emphasise your silhouette - perfect for date night! Some of my favourite one pieces currently on sale at Warehouse include this navy playsuit, which conveniently already has a belt attached. Hit two trends with this polka dot, wide leg number, or opt for this bright green, structured jumpsuit - brights are a must when the weather is this good! 

What is your go-to summer outfit? And do you love a jumpsuit as much as me? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,
