Jump Up, Jump Up, Jump Around

Published August 31, 2014 by iftheshoefits

I can’t help it, I’m obsessed with jumpsuits.  I can’t decide whether it’s because I’m a child of the Seventies and I’m still lamenting the loss of my Charlie’s Angel dungarees or whether it’s the easiest way to get dressed ever – throw it on, accessorise, add some shoes and walk out the door.

I also appear to have one to suit all occasions:

  • Navy pinstripe one for work
  • Black tailored strapless one for black tie events (throw on a tuxedo jacket and heels – effortless yet edgy elegance)
  • Wide leg chartreuse number for weddings / garden parties
  • Black jersey one for “emergency, I don’t know what to wear to that party” panic buy avoidance
  • Denim dungarees for lazy summer days

As I student in the Nineties I opted for playsuits and chunky boots – favouring ditsy prints, crushed velvet or distressed denim.  It was just so much easier than wearing dresses – and when you grew up in the windy wilds of Scotland, at least a playsuit kept your dignity intact on particularly breezy days.

I admit that jumpsuits are not for everyone, they can involve some snazzy yoga moves to get in and out of them (sometimes with a bit of jumping to release yourself completely), underwear choices are critical, and you often have to plan bathroom breaks well in advance.

But, I still find myself yearning for more…

And I’m not alone, the fabulous people at  StyleMeTraining show how it can work for you.
