If you find yourself straddling the in-between weather with a confusing mix of fabrics and an approach to wedding guest attire that leaves you reaching for your friend's suit jacket come 6pm, then you’re probably in need of a wardrobe rethink. Looking for a little help in that department? That's where we come in.
There are three types of people walking the streets at this time of
year. Next time you're sat on the tube, peer up from your coffee and
you'll see that the British population is neatly divided into three clear
groups. The pessimists, who are still wrapped in a scarf and copious
knitwear waiting for the inevitable moment that we're plunged straight back
into winter, and those who have gone full tilt into their summer wardrobes, no
holds barred – let's call them the optimists. Visions of getaway inspiration are decked in floral dresses, high hem-lines and open toe shoes and, for that, we applaud them. But, back to reality.
Now that just leaves the rest of us, whose mornings
are likely typified by a search for that much sought after seasonless look. Enter the jumpsuit.
April, otherwise known as the month that jumpsuits come into their own, is when versatility is key. An all-in-one is the stuff of spring perfection. It’s an outfit formula that transcends occasion and climate, so we've curated a list of the best premium pieces to finish off your wardrobe with ease. Find the answers below:
Step 1: Choose a print
Spring prints don’t always have
to mean ditsy florals and all-bright hues, sometimes an understated touch of
monochrome does the job just fine. It’s effortless, versatile and top of the
list when it comes to adding a little detail to your wedding guest wardrobe.
Step 2: Do savvy spring layering
weather can play havoc with your wardrobe. The only suitable solutions are light layers and a clever choice of fabrics (Hofmann Stitch Bomber, we’re looking at you).
Accessories are key
This is where the jumpsuit really comes into
its own. Take yourself from work to wedding with a pared-back
one-piece topped with modern accessories and delicate jewellery. Because
picture perfect doesn’t have to mean a dress.
