Label Lab cadet jumpsuitIt’s official, jumpsuits are back. It’s not just that we saw them on the catwalks last autumn – Diane von Furstenberg, YSL, Philip Lim 3.1, even Chanel – but it’s a trend that we shoppers just can’t get enough of. Did you know jumpsuits (and the short-legged playsuit or romper) are one of the most highly-searched items on Style Compare? So, with that in mind, and all the fash mags giving their nod (Elle, InStyle, ASOS), there’s no two ways about it. What started a few seasons ago as a flirtation with a cool 70s silhouette for a glam party has now translated into sporty, functional wear and laidback chic for sunny days. Versatility and how good they look when you put them on (on the hanger jumpsuits do not always shine) is what gives this trend wings. Jumpsuits 2011 are more about draped fabrics than structured, so make sure you have a favourite belt on hand for cinching in you waist and make an objective judgement about whether you need heels – basically the lower the crotch and less fitted the leg the more likely extra height will improve the look. For parties channel Studio 54 with brights, white or crazy prints with killer heels and big jewellery, for work go neutrals or safari chic and for festivals denim and florals. Here are three looks we’ve put together to inspire your styling. We’d love to know what you think! How would you wear this trend? Let us know in the comments below.
