Jumpsuited and Booted
This week’s style session: how to winter-proof and whoop up the jumpsuit. Two birds, one stone. Now, I know there are several readers out there yet to be converted to the joy of the jumpsuit, and so I’d like to share my theory on faffage: consider the time saved getting dressed in the morning as a trade-off for the extra time needed to visit the loo. It works for me. This cosy, navy corduroy boiler suit is from Kate Sheridan, and to winter draft-proof, just add ankle boots and an old Liberty print silk scarf. When jumpsuited I often layer a striped t-shirt underneath to avoid a Beast from the East-style blast every time I visit the bathroom. Though this season I’m considering going one further with a jersey polo neck top. The Casual Glamourpuss in me loves MiH’s tiger print turtle neck and Uniqlo is good for plain polo necks in a range of colours, both compacted cotton and ribbed jersey. Other corduroy all-in-ones can be found at Spry Workwear and MiH Jeans – and Boden has a velvet onesie. Whoop things up with Showbiz Boots, the poppy red suede pair above are from LK Bennett.
