The only way is all-in-one

I think I may finally be ready to embrace the jumpsuit of sorts. I’ve seen some goodie’s around now and I think I’m ready.
Season after season, I have looked at others wearing these, and the majority of the time I’ve thought they looked a little try-hard, or much too young for the wearer. But the ‘onesie’ is all grown-up now. It’s been fine-tuned and beautifully tailored and produced in clean-cut shapes and in quality fabrics by designers, rather than the abundance of printed polyester flooding of the chain stores. Amen.

It’s no secret that the jumpsuit has a reputation for being hard to wear. And a downright pain-in-the-ass to tackle when the loo calls. But there’s also no denying that the trend was not just a fad, this one’s sticking around for the long run. It’s surprising how versatile they can be; good for weekend lunch dates, jazzed up for night, weddings etc. We’ve seen them done well loads of times on the red carpet, some with success- (Gwyneth is a fan and wears them really well, as does Anja Rubik. Miley Cyrus likes to give one a whirl regularly) and some with not so much flattering success. My go with the jumpsuit is to keep it minimalist- they just look so much better when there’s little accessorising, and when they’re not too roomy or too tight. A tricky shape like the Gucci Resort combined wrap torso, fastened waist and pyjama pant-style base can prove to be a mess if it’s not on the right height. So take precaution and keep it simple.

I’ve included below some of my favourite’s from Resort 14, plus an admired Giambattista Valli style from Spring 13.

Molten-dipped magic for 2013

Burberry Prorsum has created a monster! It was all glitz and glamour at their Spring Summer 2013 show as Christopher Bailey showed abundance of metallics, rehashing the sci-fi trend we saw for the season prior. The pinks and blues were standouts for me, as metallics in any form of green looks way too sickly.
Metallics in their softer metal forms are so wearable they can really be considered a form of neutrals. Pair a silver sweater with a boyfriend jeans, or substitute the trench for a soft gold coat and you’re good to go! This is a trend you can keep in your closets, with metallics proving popular into the Fall season, on the catwalks at Marc Jacobs and Paul Smith. There are loads of amazing molten-dipped pieces on the market right now. Shop the trend below:
