Party season is officially here, and we can’t think of a worse situation than being in a style stitch! Rummaging through your wardrobe to find that perfect piece to impress at the office party? Or, maybe you’re planning a big night on the tiles with your BFFs, and can’t quite figure out a dance floor-worthy look? Fret not, because the LBD’s archrival – the jumpsuit – is here to save the day!
A welcome update on the party dress; we think the jumpsuit rocks our night out wardrobe on so many levels. Easy to wear, and even easier to style, it’s part slick Seventies siren and part girl who wants to dodge the thigh skimming number for winter. And, given were always busy hunting the best buys for you to shop right now, we’ve tracked down two gorgeous jumpsuits to suit either end of the budget spectrum.
In at the designer end is the gorgeous Valentino embellished wool and silk-blend jumpsuit, £3,145. Although the price tag screams ‘OUCH,’ if you’re looking to make a lifelong investment, this jumpsuit’s the one. Everything from the subtly tapered fit to the white leather embellished bib front ensures it’ll become your permanent party buddy (and the envy of all your friends).
Not got just over three grand to hand? Thought so! But that doesn’t meant you have to miss out on the leg action when it comes to jumping into a jumpsuit (pun intended) before hailing your cab for the night. Snap up an equally stylish version at high street haunt, Mango, for £69.99 – a snip of the price! The tuxedo-style jumpsuit has an air of YSL’s Le Smoking about it, and we’re wearing ours with a crimson pout and sky high heels.
So, what will it be: splurge or save?
