LEISURE COMPLEX: The Jumpsuit

Make the jumpsuit your spring uniform to reconnect with your low maintenance self.

A single garment that can be dressed up or down and worn round the clock… it’s hard to imagine why we bother with other clothes. Katharine Hepburn, 4 time Oscar winner and fashion maven, was rarely spotted in anything but her one piece. Katharine had the right idea. 

There are two types of jumpsuit. One is the drapey Studio 54 type. The other is the sporty luxe type. Both are equally fabulous and functional but this week’s focus is drapey.

With a fluid batwing silhouette that’s drawn in with a tie belt at the waist - this piece is very Bianca Jagger circa the 1970s and is also very flattering. Made from a plaited jersey fabric with high-shine face and matt reverse - it looks like evening wear/ feels like loungewear. Prayers. Answered.
