TIPS - How to Wear the Jumpsuit

Could it be that the trend we all thought might be a fashion fad, the jumpsuit, could become your next wardrobe classic. If the fashion mags are anything to go by the answer is yes, and many designers are putting them in the coming season's collections such as Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and YSL.

Wearing a playsuit is a hard look to master. Firstly you should choose a style that suits your figure. There is no point going for lycra if you have a few lumps and bumps, but that is not to say there is not a playsuit that suits those above a size 6.

You should also not go for something too baggy as this can be as unflattering as something too tight. The romper style playsuits are good for one thing... toddlers. Don't even get me started on the harem pant playsuits. Think tailored or body skimming and you will be looking at a better investment that can be worn more than once and at various occasions.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Victoria Beckham both got it right in 2008 with their smart, black playsuits. A perfectly flattering style for the average gal to copy. Wear it with heels to lengthen your legs and elongate your silhouette.

Wear with a bright patent clutch for a modern, playful (but still grown up) edge. If you can't afford the designer versions, then Topshop has loads of playsuits in stock right now and many are on sale. Check them out.
