Trend of the week: Jumpsuits

One piece, multiple looks, zero effort, says Annmarie O’Connor.


Spring conjures up words like ‘effortless’, ‘breezy’ and ‘easy’.

So, dressing for its warm embrace requires an equally fussfree approach.

One can’t affect an air of laissez-faire when furrowing a brow over what to wear.

It’s seasonally-inappropriate.

What’s more, the solution is simple. Let’s jump right in, shall we?


Cropped: Petite? Try Coast’s strapless crop leg beauty. Vertical lines elongate without the ‘too much fabric’ lament.

Deep V: Segue back into cooler weather with a thin polo neck – an autumn/winter 17 style steal!

Asymmetric: Breaks up bigger shoulders and adds a sexy twist to boot.

Draping: Wallis’ drape panel jumpsuit skims over tummy bulges. 

Optical illusion: No waist? Create curves with artfully-placed cut outs.
