The Best Jumpsuits For Spring And Summer

This out is one of many I shot whilst in Lake Como with the girls and Mr and Mrs Smith. I have to say, it was a real "pat on the back" moment. I'm not sure what or how I expected this little blog to ever develop, but I certainly never thought I'd be staying in Napoleon's former home in Italy, on the most luxurious trip I've ever been on in my life. Any way, I used it as a proper base for some content and this was one of many outfits I shot, and it's one of my all time favourites.

Jumpsuits (or "rompers" for my US followers) aren't something I envisaged being "into." My lower and upper half are often different sizes in separates, and I'm quite short so I didn't think they'd flatter me very well. However, I first got a jumpsuit in a very similar style to the one in this post but in black (5 years ago, but this one is very similar) and absolutely loved it. I never thought cut out waists would be my bag either, but the beauty of them is the size of the cut-out essentially makes your waist look that size, so it's super flattering.

Other tips for shapes like mine; tailored waists with wide legs are the most flattering. By making your legs wider your middle looks smaller. Balance the amount of fabric you've got on with some flattering subtle-skin-showing shapes; off shoulder or cut out middle, or shirted style with buttons open to an acceptable level are all good ways of going about it.

I'll do a broader edit below, but above are my selections for striped jumpsuits as they're really in. In truth this was an entirely selfish exercise as I pulled this lot together when I decided I wanted this one but as is usual with ASOS it has sold out quite quickly in most sizes. This Neon Rose one was a very close contender and if I didn't already have one in an identical shape. Mango are very good these days, I have totally followed suit with all the bloggers wearing it and have found myself knee deep in their website almost on a daily basis - so there are a couple from them in this post. Another one is a weird one, Pretty Little Things. Ignore their heinous teenage advertising - this is gorgeous.

Looking broadly at jumpsuits across all the brands, there are some AWESOME ones at the moment and I've had to work to restrain myself. I bought this one from Topshop last week, which I'm actually wearing as I type this, I love it! It's super versatile, I can imagine wearing it on holiday as much as I can here in the UK. For smarter ones, this one from Mango is lovely.

Lets not forget this complete beauty too, because she really is very special and perfect for those "I don't know what to wear this evening" situations. As I said before, the shape of it is the most important thing. I, for example, know that any jumpsuits that are tight on the leg are a no go for me.

As for what to pair with them, the world is your oyster. My one here looks great with sandals but I'd also put them with a block heel for evenings. This is what I love about them, they are so versatile and there is rarely a time where a jumpsuit of some description won't work as an outfit choice. I have a few now and just throw them on for the days where I'm not sure what to wear, brilliant!
