Well, this post has been a long time coming. Any of my friends will know that I don’t just like jumpsuits; I have a full-blown, slightly unhealthy obsession with them, and am building quite a ridiculous collection. I vaguely remember shopping with my mum just before Christmas 2013, telling her absolutely not to buy me anymore jumpsuits, because they’d probably go out of fashion pretty soon. I guess I called that one wrong. Now I have 10/11 and counting, and am trying to add a few more to my collection before I go on holiday to Greece in June – but more on that very soon.
What makes my perfect jumpsuit, you may ask? I tend to go for two types – the really tailored, structured look that’s perfect for a job interview, or a smart occasion; or something more relaxed, probably made from a softer material, with nice floaty legs, a ruched or wrapped top half and a really flattering waistline that cinches me right in.
These 9 pretty much fit into category number two and there seems to be a theme going on, in that they ALL come from ASOS, Mango or Miss Selfridge, but the rest of the high street was a little lacking when it came to pretty, summery looking jumpsuits. I’ve inadvertently gone for a collection of prints, florals, and an absolutely gorgeous white wrap jumpsuit that I probably will only wear in my dreams. I’ve also included one culotte jumpsuit as I’m determined to make this look work for me, even if I’m not really cool enough for that kinda thing.
So, before I bore you all to tears, it’s time to take a look at my pick of the high street when it comes to summer jumpsuits. Which is your favourite?
PS – I have a confession to make. I *might* already have invested in one of these, namely number 8. It was already on my list of absolute must-haves for my holidays, but mum beat me to the punch and brought it back from her trip to Tenerife, so thats one less to lust over.
