Why should you pack a jumpsuit on your next city break?
Comfort vs. Style! I've always been someone to choose comfort over fashion, especially on long coach trips or when you're stuck in an airport. Although I may not be wearing stiletto heels I still like to be 'photo ready'. Jumpsuits or playsuits are one of the easiest and most versatile outfits to take on holiday and I recommend taking at least one with you on any city break.
The down side...
As much as I love playsuits they can cause difficulties if you need to change or go to the restroom, especially if there aren't any western toilets they can create a logistical nightmare. Be sure to have someone on hand to help you or choose one with an easy zipper to avoid any embarrassing moments.
Here are my current favourites...
Lets take a closer look
This dark floral playsuit is properly my absolute favourite, not only beautiful but extremely well made and has lasted me many years and still looks brand new. This particular one is from Topshop and you can have a look at their full selection here.
This wide-legged jumpsuit from Primark will give your outfits a pop of colour. If you are on the shorter side like myself (I am 5"3') you may struggle to find jumpsuits that are a suitable leg length. This one is actually designed to be culottes but is full length on me.
This delicate paisley playsuit is from missguided and the loose shorts were perfect in the Spanish heat.
This gorgeous playsuit from Boohoo definitely has that holiday vibe. This one is fairly thin material so can also be laid with another top underneath or you can unbutton it and use it as a beach cover-up.
In some areas there are strict dress codes that you will have to follow, the Sistine Chapel and most other religious sights will require you to have your shoulders and legs covered. Although I usually take a scarf in case I need to cover my head I find it best to be as appropriately covered as possible before arriving. This jumpsuit from Select is perfect for these occasions.
