With a month left of sun it’s time to pull out all the stops. Wear that broderie anglaise playsuit that you’ve been far too precious with, or that bright sheer chiffon maxi you still haven’t found the right occasion for. Those high-waisted skinnies, can wait another month.
I’m yet to actually purchase a jumpsuit; I love their one-piece ease, and the idea of channelling the greats that have worn them before, but even though I try, I still haven’t got the balls to buy. That’s all about to change, thanks to Sienna Miller, Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo, who have consecutively managed to make the case for the white jumpsuit.
Like white jeans, the white jumpsuit shows the world you couldn’t care less if your whites get dirty, because you can afford to buy another pair; The only difference being that you’re sartorially one step ahead.
The trick to pulling off the look with A-List ease, is to keep hair simple and make-up minimal for day and up the ante with a red lip for evening.
