One Piece is in: Jumpsuits and Playsuits it is!

One-piece wardrobes are “in” again! And those are overalls, jumpsuits, playsuits and rompers. Like bell bottoms and flared jeans they are resurrected in the fashion world!

Evening: a new take on relaxed glamour, no-one has nailed this quite like Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. Single-shouldered and sequin covered jumpsuits were a striking alternative to the traditional evening dress.
Tailored: smart and sophisticated, a tailored playsuit can be office-ready as well as dressed up for day or night. Look for crisper fabrics, cuffed shorts, and cinched in waists - a la Karl Lagerfeld.
Loose and flowing: the perfect take for Spring/Summer, this look has a dash of hippy - working best when combined with soft floral prints. Fabrics should be free-flowing, legs wide and long. The likes of Roberto Cavalli and Etro produced the perfect examples.
Sporty: Julien MacDonald, Lacoste and Walter all took sportier options, in line with S/S '10'ssports trend; from hoods and zips to simple cotton jersey fabrics.
Basic: while some designers have gone for prints and intricate detailing, the likes of Stella McCartney and Givenchy presented the ideal basic options. A more versatile wardrobe staple, go for black, white or nude colours and simple straight cuts.

How must you wear them?
-          For a bombshell silhouette look for a pear shaped figure, one must wear a halter styled jumpsuit or playsuit and be sure to belt it firmly.
-          For night time opt for luxurious fabrics like silks; details like sequins or sheer panels; or leather for an edgier look.
