I have a hunch that playsuits, (huge as they are every summer), are going to be more than usually huge this summer. I just have a feeling…
Maybe because we’ve been inundated of late with pics of playsuit-wearing celebs? Maybe because every time I have a little look at Net-a-porter’s ‘What’s new’ section, there’s always some kind of new playsuit just in stock?
Whatever the reason, I have playsuits on the brain, but fortunately I love them and will gladly be wearing them come rain or shine. (Well maybe not rain.) But that’s the great thing about them as well- unlike shorts which, (if you know my preferences by now) I can’t stand to see worn with hosiery, playsuits, to my mind, look good on top of a pair of opaques.
Obviously not a floaty, beachy Zimmermann number, but if you choose a structured, crepey one then yes! And I love the idea of pairing them with ballet flats or gladiators.
The only downside? I wore one yesterday, and forgot that it does pose a problem in terms of loo visits…
Aside from this, they’re fun, functional, super comfy, and stylish. Like dungarees for grownups. What’s not to love?
