For those of you lucky enough to be heading into summer, there is no better staple than a playsuit, like this one from ASOS. Comfortable and versatile, they can be paired with cropped jackets and cardigans and worn with boots, heels or sandals. As a quirkier alternative to a mini dress, they can be worn out at night without the fear of your dress flying up on the dance floor. Seen all over the runway from the likes of Camilla and Marc and Zimmermann , there are playsuits that will suit every body type.
Today's Fashionista wore a chic floral playsuit with tan gladiator sandals and a cropped cut-out sweater. On one of the last warm days of autumn, she took advantage of the pleasant weather and showed off her slim figure in this modern take on a '60s classic. Because the suit is fitted at the top and around the waist, while looser in the shorts, it accentuates her small frame while still remaining comfortable. The band of material around the waist also brings the playsuit in, ensuring that she maintains a shapely figure.
The simple cropped sweater worn over the playsuit breaks up the pattern and contrasts the bright colours. Combining the two different materials gives her outfit a unique element and creates texture. The leather gladiator sandals are also a perfect staple for the summer wardrobe and will also transcend throughout autumn and spring.
Hint: Try purchasing a playsuit online. ASOS and Topshop have a wide range of patterns and sizes available that are affordable on a student budget!
