5 ways to style your playsuit this winter season …
As we know the playsuit is a great way to show off your legs in the summer months, but how do we continue wearing one in the chiller season? How, you ask? Simple, with a pair of classic black leggings. Also commonly referred to as stocking tights, leggings are a great way of warming up your bare legs while leaving you looking and feeling as sophisticated as ever! If you want to create a softer daytime look, try a pair of semi sheer stockings paired with ankle heel boots and a cosy cardigan for that flirty feminine vibe that will have you feeling like you’re strolling the streets of Paris. We J’adore this look!
Keep your shoulders warm by layering a white shirt under your favourite strap sleeve playsuit for an incredibly chic yet comfortable fashion look. Elevate your look by experimenting with different textures and styles. For a classic daytime look pick a sheer lace long sleeve shirt or add a youthful street style edge by opting for a cotton button up tailored shirt. Remember the key to pulling off this modern look is to go with a shirt that is delicate and thin in weight as opposed to a thick crease prone shirt that will just make the overall look feel bulky, messy and clumsy.
Jump straight into trend this winter season with a bold faux fur coat. The faux fur coat is the perfect accompaniment to add to your winter playsuit look. Not only does this coat offer incredible warmth, but it also provides you with fuss free high fashion style. Choose from a variety of bold colours such as ruby red or emerald green, or keep it old school glam with a black or white coat. Try layering your look by playing around with a variety of lengths and styles, anything from a cropped bolero to a dramatic waist length coat. Complete your look by adding a pair of sheer stocking, sultry thigh high boots and an envelope clutch. The perfect option for an upcoming girls night out!
As we all know by now, the tailored power jacket/blazer or structured winter coat is making its mark this fashion season. With a focus now more than ever before, on women of the future and the fearless ‘power woman’, what better way to celebrate than with a tailored jacket. Try adding a fitted blazer to your playsuit this coming winter for a flawlessly demure look. For easy daytime styling choose a felt like fabric or light weight crepe jacket to supplement your look. If you’re after an elegant evening cocktail look, add a smooth finish texture such as silk satin for a strikingly powerful after dark style.
It is believed that if your feet are kept well covered and warm, you’ll feel comfortable and be less likely to feel the cold throughout the rest of your body. So what better way to keep warm and stay stylish this winter than with a cute ankle or mid-calf length boot. Take your look from day-to-night by adding a sleek boot to your playsuit. This look is perfect for the mild Australian winter weather. For daytime chic styling, add a denim jacket and black fedora or pump up the glam in a sequin playsuit at your next Friday night party.
The humble playsuit’s lifespan can be extended so that it can easily and comfortably be worn in the cooler winter months. Try ‘winterfying‘ your playsuit for your next special winter occasion with our easy to achieve style tips!
