  • The best playsuits for all-in-one summer styling.

    Playsuits have long been a summer style staple and look set to stick around for a few seasons to come – and it’s not hard to see why.

    Effortlessly cool, they’ve become the uniform for festival-goers, worn with lashings of suede, layered accessories and flat gladiator sandals.

    Alongside your super-chic new bikini, the playsuit is one of the first things we pack when prepping for a hot holiday in a far flung destination.

    Evening styles are a firm favourite among the fash-pack, and come in sleek black tailored versions, perfect for pairing with barely there sandals for an alternative occasionwear look.

    The typical summer interpretation? It’s all about standout prints, cool khaki colours and silky fabrics.

    And with such versatility and serious staying power, we think the playsuit is well worth a look and will prove to be a worthy investment for your wardrobe.

    For SS16, new loose-fit styles have emerged, in casual utility designs perfect for weekend wear.

    A denim all-in-one is super-chic for SS15 and manages to tick two key trend boxes at once.

    Florals are a flirty and feminine fashion choice during this welcome warmer weather. Just add some heels and a cool box clutch bag to finish.

    If you’re looking for the perfect playsuit to wear with sky-high stilettos for a girls’ night out or casual summer wedding, we suggest considering something strappy and printed (Anna Sui). Tease your hair into a topknot before painting a bright shade across your lips for full-on glamour.

    Keen to know what else is trending for this season when it comes to playsuits, and what has to be our favourite style for summer? It has to be the crisp white popling style. Wear your new cool white all-in-one with flat summer slides and a pair of tortoiseshell sunnies for an effortlessly cool summer look.
