Women's jumpsuits, minimalist elegance.
Admittedly, they were restricted to the catwalks for a long time, but a few years ago now women's jumpsuits found their way into ready-to-wear collections. Whether the jumpsuit you choose is long or short, with full-length sleeves or without, it will have the definite advantage of being a minimalist piece, in which you simply feel dressed and ready to go. The many designs available mean that everyone can find a cut that is perfect for their body shape.
Jumpsuits for women come in different versions and a variety of designs. In summer, playsuits are fun, whether they have short-sleeves or straps. Alternatively, you can choose a long, sleeveless jumpsuit with floral or tropical prints. For a more dressy occasion, opt for a floaty jumpsuit with long sleeves, worn over high-heels. Although materials like linen, silk and viscose are ideal for jumpsuit designs, you can also find pieces in denim, along the lines of dungarees with a bit of a vintage feel. Other, more daring designs can be found made of leather.
Some of the leading couture houses have made jumpsuits one of the signature pieces in their collections. We are especially thinking of Chanel, which proposes wool jumpsuits with fine straps, to pair with fitted cashmere sweaters. Stella McCartney prefers floaty fabrics, which she uses to design long jumpsuits in colourful prints. Anyone looking for a shorts and braces combo will think of Maje and Sandro. The two labels are fond of designs in silk, preferably mono colour or two-tone.
