Simple Style Guides for the Perfect Playsuit Outfit

 

 

 

Year after year, these amazing one-pieces keep making a comeback. We are talking, of course, about playsuits. They are the easiest thing in the world to make into a full outfit and they fit nearly everyone amazingly. But there are a few tricks to making a playsuit look good, and once you master them, it will surely become your new favorite piece. So to help you be perfectly on trend this summer, here is exactly what you need to know about wearing this fabulous piece of clothing.

Choose the right style

Just like you can’t bundle up all dresses under one name, you can’t do it with playsuits either. And a lot of people give up on a playsuit just because the first one they tried on didn’t fit them the way they wanted it to. For starters, let’s look at the tops. Tops of playsuits vary as much as tops in general, so going for something that you usually like to wear as a top will give you a better chance of finding something you like. If you wear wrap tops, tank tops, or off-shoulder tops, find a playsuit that features a similar style. As for the bottoms, there is a clear distinction: playsuits feature shorts, culotte jumpsuits are a bit longer, and traditional jumpsuits have a full-length bottom. Choose something you are comfortable with, that fits the occasion and that shows off your personal style.

Sizing

This is the tricky part. Even when buying a fitted dress, you can’t just drape it over your body. You need to see if the waist is in the right place, if there is enough room for the chest, etc. With rompers, it’s a step further than that, because you also have to figure out how high the crotch should be so that it looks flattering. This will depend mostly on the size and length of your torso and your legs. When you are picking out a jumpsuit, or ordering online, you might want to aim for a size up, unless you are very petite. A baggy look is a lot more forgiving than something too tight, so use that to your advantage.

Layers

An amazing way to style playsuits is to layer them with something. Because they are an outfit all by themselves, throwing in something over or under the playsuit can make all the difference. If you live in a colder climate like Scandinavia, you can still wear playsuits, layered perhaps with a turtleneck underneath. Or if you live somewhere where the weather changes often, like Sydney, summery playsuits in Australia can be worn with a rain jacket tied around the waist, ready to be put into action if it starts to rain.

Accessories

Depending on the print of the jumpsuit, you might not have to accessorize a lot at all. If it is a busy print, then necklaces and other jewelry will just get lost in the clothing. In those situations, consider accessories that don’t overlap with the romper, like hats, shoes and bags. However, if you are wearing a plain black jumpsuit, then it’s the perfect time for a colorful belt, long necklace, bracelets and all the other pieces that make your style truly your own. This can also help you with choosing your playsuit initially. If you are someone who likes to accessorize, don’t go for a heavy print, and vice versa.

Playsuits aren’t going anywhere as a style, and there are more and more of them to choose from every season, so get comfortable and remember – going to the bathroom in a romper is not as scary as everyone thinks it is!

Summer is well and truly here so what better style to focus on first than the everyday sandal. Comfortable and cooling, sandals can go with anything from a chiffon dress to a pair of casual shorts. If you’re venturing to the beach for your vacation this year, be sure to choose a bold color for your sandal and consider going for a solid ankle support, especially if you’re wearing them day in, day out.

  1. Killer Heels

Opt for a classic print that oozes class and sophistication. When it comes to heel style, the world is your oyster with colorful stiletto heels allowing your creativity to run wild. Whether your heels are paired with a little black dress for a hot date or skinny jeans just to meet friends for lunch, you can’t fail to feel confident and sexy.

We all like to kick back once in a while, and a pair of trusty sneakers will allow you to carry off a simple, relaxed look effortlessly. Go for a slim-fitting pair, as sneakers can have a tendency of making your feet look unusually bulky. Store your footwear in a handy little sneaker storage box. This intelligent storage solution doesn’t have to stay in a fixed position, can be hidden away and saves you space allowing you more room for more shoes.

  1. Ankle Boots

Have ankle boots ever gone out of fashion? Every year, new styles appear on the catwalk, but they are still accessible to the consumer via the high street. Classic suede cowboy-esque boots in a shade of tan will be one of your go to pairs of shoes. The ankle boot is the essential, versatile shoe that can be paired with anything to give your outfit that edgy look.

  1. Brogues

The brogue has had a feminine makeover in recent years with mirror shine finishes and cute detailing added to a traditionally masculine shoe. A classic look for those of us who are a little more into geek chic, these can equally be worn to work or down to the park with your friends. These lace ups are a great addition to any wardrobe.

With this ultimate shoe collection, gone are the days of peering into your closet and despairing at not having the right pair of shoes. It’s time to go shopping!

You need a pair of cropped trousers with a lightweight shirt

It’s so important to stay comfortable when you are at the garden party. After all, you want to stay cool while tending to the hot BBQ. Therefore, you need clothes which will ensure you don’t overheat while you look fabulous. A cute pair of cropped pants would be ideal for the party. They are dressy, but also give off a summery vibe. If you go for a yellow or blue pair, you will look ready to have a good time at the garden party.

Not only can a summery hat help you to complete that garden party outfit, but it will keep your head protected in the sunshine. After all, you might be out in the garden for hours with your friends and family. A great oversized hat in a floppy design would be a perfect choice. Go for a light color to ensure it matches with the rest of your outfit. Or if you would prefer something more simple, go for a trilby which will also look superb for the party!
