It’s the perfect garment to take you from summer into autumn. Ladies, it’s time to jump on board with the jumpsuit.

An ill-fitting jumpsuit can run the risk of making you look like a giant baby (to confirm, this is not a good look!), so it’s imperative you try on a few to find the right shape for you. Get the style right and it’s ultra versatile and effortlessly stylish. Curvy ladies: celebrate your shape. Opt for a jumpsuit with a wrap front or v-neck. A looser, relaxed fit, with a drop waist will lengthen your torso and be more flattering. Slender ladies: choose something tailored and neat to show off your waist. Be bold and embrace a jumpsuit with fabulous back detail. Low, strappy or lace can add some fabulous drama.How to wear them: As the days get chillier, add a tailored jacket or slouchy cardigan, to keep it elegant and stylish. Keep it comfy with a pair of pretty flats and take it from day to night with the simple addition of a heel.
