The jumpsuit has shifted from an item favoured by only the fashion-committed to a staple loved by all. Frankly, this change is long overdue. There is only one downside to this versatile piece – having to disrobe to go to the loo.
There are loads to choose from on the high street: the everything jumpsuit for work or play (Omnes); the event jumpsuit, which adds a bit of glamour (J Crew); and a casual one for when your day consists of sofas and box sets (People Tree).
Renting a jumpsuit offers an opportunity to play with different eras, the kind that designers tend to reference. Thrifting is a mixed bag: you may be lucky and find a curio that has that retro feel. Buy now, dress up with jewellery, add shoes and – this is the genius of a jumpsuit – that’s it: you’re good to go.
