Trend of the week: Jumpsuits

Easy-to-wear just got a makeover says Annmarie O’Connor.


Divisive yet delicious, the jumpsuit continues its trend dominance. From the disco days of Studio 54 to its millennial reinterpretation, its simple yet sexy mantra still abides.

From cool girl street stylers to thoroughly modern wedding guests. Five minutes to get dressed; a whole evening to look outstanding. What’s not to love?


A cropped leg makes daywear a dream. Add flats or luxe trainers to finish the look.

Self-conscious about your arms? Opt for a capelet style or a kimono or batwing sleeve.

Balance broad shoulders with a flattering halterneck.

Easy on the accessories. A statement bangle or earring paired with chic heels and killer clutch should do the job.

Nothing remarkable about the journey, until I read the story of a missing girl in Praia De Luz, Portugal.Learning Points: Give Madeleine McCann's family the space to put their lives back together
