The playsuit. In the summer I live in these, I must have at least 20 in my wardrobe right now. Why do I love them so much you ask? They’re lightweight and really comfortable. In the morning when I can’t be bothered to style an entire outfit it’s easier to throw one of these on instead. The great thing is that there are so many variations; structured cuts, floaty numbers, bold prints and block colours. For me they’re a super wardrobe staple for day to night dressing. As I love monochrome I thought i’d focus on my 5 favourite pieces from this season.
So, this gingham print playsuit is very clever because it looks like a dress. With the little pair of stitched in shorts underneath there is zero chance of underwear exposure on a windy day! The deep v neckline is ultra flattering and the pretty sleeves are a nod to this season’s ruffle trend. In the daytime i’ll usually accessorise this outfit with a simple pendant necklace from Berrymead Studio, my Gucci cross-body bag and these gorgeous pearly flats from Zara. If I want to dress it up for the evening i’ll pop on a pair of black strappy heels and i’m good to go! All outfit details are at the bottom of this post.
This strappy jumpsuit with its plunging neckline is the perfect piece to pack in your suitcase for a hot holiday. The ultra-thin vertical stripe and the cinched in detail at the waist will flatter your figure. I’d use it as a cover-up that can be styled with chunky accessories and sandals for cocktails on the beach.
I love anything with tassels, it’s a great little detail which has been added to this fun printed piece. Flared sleeves and the insert detail at the waist are added features to a playsuit that could be worn to dinner with chunky heels or to a festival with a pair of wellies!
A fun and flirty cold shoulder playsuit from Free People harks back to the 70s with its cut and delicate details around the neck and hemline. Channel your inner romantic this summer with this super-soft jersey number and a pair of statement earrings. Team it with suede ankle boots or sandals to complete the look.
The cold shoulder detail and the tie around the waist ensure maximum femininity with this Monki playsuit. This is a piece that i’d wear during the day in the city, then dressing it up for the evening with a bold red lip and stacking bangles
