Trend We Like: Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits have been back in fashion for some time now and I haven’t shied from saying how much I like it – there was last year’s Top 5 jumpsuits and how to wear them and more recently the long black one piece from our Gossamergirl competition.

Today’s trend report focuses on the longer version, and also considering that we’re coming into summer, the mid-length jumpsuit.

This all in one popped up on so many different spring catwalks that it’s hard to keep track of all of them but Antonio Berardi, Givenchy and Lanvin stood out while the high street was quick to endorse the trend for both autumn winter and spring summer collections.

Who’s wearing jumpsuits

I’ve spotted a heaps more celebrities wearing assorted jumpsuit styles from the glamorous Cat Deeley (looking very 70’s), to Davina McCall, Rachel Stevens and Lady Isabella Hervey (see gallery below).

My firm favourite however is the black silk one which Sienna Miller wore on the David Letterman show last October. It’s probably just another harem style jersey playsuit, but it’s the way in which she accessorised it (with a gold sequinned shrug and gold pendant), that made it interesting.

Karen Koster

Even our own home grown Karen Koster is a fan (pictured). Koster loves Karen Millen and is pictured wearing an asymmetric jersey playsuit (€235), one of the many jumpsuits in store at Karen Millen right now.

Where to buy jumpsuits

Their black jumpsuits are a great choice for evening wear (check out their tuxedo version with capri pants), while their tailored denim version would make a smart daytime event option.

While Jaeger, Halston Heritage, Stella McCartney and DvF all have beautiful versions, Topshop, Asos and Urban Outfitters lead the pack when it comes to “every day” prices.

Maternity Jumpsuit

And not to forget our pregnant friends, Isabella Oliver does a maternity version in black or cobalt blue – an alternative summer option to a maxi dress.

Although it’s true that some all-in-ones make a big statement, there are so many styles available that it’s possible to find a play suit for any situation or style.

    I really dont that jumpsuits do anything for smaller womenand in this case think that Karen Kosters junpsuit gives her huge hips and makes her look quite heavy, which she isn’t…

    SO would add a word of caution and say that if small . then a carefully chosen jumpsuit style that doesnt add pound is very important.
