Why Everyone Needs a Jumpsuit

Onesie, jumpsuit, playsuit, all-in-one, the jumpsuit has many different guises that suit most, if not all occassions. Toilet navigation aside, we will never stop singing jumpsuits praises, afterall it's the one-piece outfit that requires minimal effort, but makes you look (and feel) amazing. Like a wardrobe BFF, it's one of those pieces you can fling on and forget about the rest, cos you know you are gonna be alright.

From broadening your wardrobe horizons via a peekaboo, or shortening your hemlines with some modesty saving shorts, the jumpsuit is the essential you never thought you needed. So if you haven't jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon by now, you might want to catch up. Sure, dresses and a good trou are fun, but nothing beats wearing a one-piece that instantly places you into the fashion forward category. From work-appropriate jumpsuits (yes, such a thing exists) to beach-ready culotte onesies, here are 10 styles to suit every need this summer.
