Can a "40 something" really rock a jumpsuit??!!

This is a question that I have been asking myself a lot this season. Am I too old at 47, to wear an all-in-one and not look ridiculous? Should I leave this trend up to my gorgeous 20 year old daughter? She has many from Asos!!

Jumpsuits and many versions of them have been around for a while now. It normally takes a good few seasons for a trend to be filtered enough that it becomes more mainstream. It is at this point that we then classify a trend as normal and even a wardrobe staple.

I love dresses and really a jumpsuit is another version of these but with legs!! Jumpsuits are the ultimate lazy piece of clothing you should own. Just pop one on and go. Dress up or down, heels or trainers. Layer up depending on type.

What is clear to me and it doesn't matter what age you are, go with the shape that suits you and do not get wooed by a shape just because it is on trend. For me, I am very tall and the more fitted jumpsuits don't fit let alone suit. But I love the idea of wearing one so I have been on a hunt!

Celebrities that are rocking the jumpsuits are aplenty. Amanda Holden in a denim boiler suit, Nicole Sherzinger in a strapless all-in-one and Tess Daly in a a floaty jumpsuit are all showing how it is done. Thank you Pinterest for these images.

 

 

 

Well, I can now say that I found one that not only fits but suits and I have sealed approval from my teenagers at home who, as you can imagine, just say it how it is!!

For me, it has been about the shape of the trouser and what suits my long legs. I am not too dressy and I love a simple shape. The Suncoo jumpsuit was just right. I have a feeling that this will be my "go to" for the rest of the season.
