Right, I’ve got a confession to make: I know absolutely nothing about fashion. Honestly I am absolutely useless at putting outfits together, I don’t know what suits my shape, what colours suit my skin tone and I haven’t got a clue about layering. So there you have it, I am the first ever ‘clueless-about-fashion-fashion-blogger’. I’ve struggled with this problem for most of my life, that is, until recently when I discovered one piece of clothing that would conquer all. The jumpsuit. I bloody love a jumpsuit. No need to worry about what style of jeans goes with what colour t-shirt, or whether I can wear a skirt with a crop top, or is that too much skin? or is a t-shirt and jeans not enough skin?! ARGH. The stress is real. That’s why a jumpsuit is my ideal piece of clothing. Just whack it on and the job’s done. An outfit is created in one. Plus can we talk about the fact that NO BRA IS NEEDED. They’re loose, comfy and they look cool. Here are some of my faves at the moment.
The festival jumpsuit
This is my favourite thing at the moment. Funky and floral with a 70s edge and a lace-up back, this is my dream jumpsuit. I wore it to Field Day festival last weekend and a woman complimented me on it so. You can buy it HERE from Topshop for £49.
The day jumpsuit
When this jumpsuit arrived through the post, I nearly wet myself with excitement. I couldn’t quite tell what the fabric was like from the website, but it’s a gorgeously soft denim cotton. The fit is perfect, although do double check because American sizing is WEIRD. I bought it from Revolve Clothing for £73.40 (also careful with extra tax they add on!). You can buy it here.
The dressy jumpsuit
It was my sister’s 21st birthday recently and I really got it into my head that I wanted to wear a white jumpsuit (we don’t coordinate our outfits, nope, not at all). The problem with white is, you can see every bloody mole and hair follicle through it. Also I have a thing about tacky white fabric. No cheap white jumpsuits in this house thank youuuuu. I got this beauty from Mango for £35.99 and I absolutely love it. It’s such a nice alternative to a lace dress or suchlike because it’s all romantic and pretty AND backless (sorry didn’t think to get a photo). If you think you can handle the lace running up your cleavage and down your thighs then DO IT. You can buy it from Mango here!
p.s. if you’re not brave enough to wear it braless, invest in what I call an ‘Alien Bra’. If you wear a lot of backless clothes, it’ll be the best thing you ever buy. Alien Bras can be bought for around a tenner from Amazon. Buy one here.
I have about a million more, it was tricky to pick even a few, but if, like me, you are fashion USELESS then invest, a jumpsuit makes life so much easier (apart from when you’re going for a wee lol).
