Playsuits, rompers, jumpsuits – whatever you want to call them, these cute & flirty outfits are a must-have for the springtime. With the freedom and femininity of a dress but the practicality of a short, there really is no wonder that these gorgeous little garments have gained so much popularity and cult status among celebs and fashionistas alike.
Styling Playsuits for Spring: a how to
Springtime and warmer weather calls for soft, floaty fabrics in similar tones. Floral prints and quirky patterns are always a winner. If you still can’t shake the deeper tonal palette of winter then look to break up heavier colours with bright accessories such as statement earrings and belts to cinch in at the waist and break up the heaviness.
Break it up. For neutral coloured playsuits try complementing the starkness of black or deep tones with bright or contrasting accessories. This look is great for casual day wear and can even be worn as an outfit for outdoor spring festivals and events. See how this model has chosen to cinch the waist with a tan braided belt and complemented her look and made it her own with cowboy style boots and a poncho? Experiment with your own style and see what works best for you. If you like bright accessories, try pairing your dark playsuit with emerald or purple statement necklaces or even a pair of bright pumps.
Keep it feminine in floral. Nothing quite says spring like floral prints. Perfect for the girls girl or for those wanting a fresh and feminine look, but easy to tone down and mix up for those who don’t want to appear too girly. Try pairing your floral playsuit with an over-sized floppy hat and layered chunky bangles for a cool edge. Floral prints also look great when paired with fashionable sandals (gladiator sandals are very in right now) or strappy heels in pastel colours.
Experiment with texture. For a change from the normal prints, try a lace romper like this Te Amo playsuit from Stone Cold Fox. Wear with wedges or style with a blazer for an effortless look that will take you from day to night. For those who like a classic look, styling your white lace playsuit with black accessories such as a black fedora hat or shoulder bag and peep toe shoes will keep you looking monochrome cool.
Play it up with patterns. Playsuits in playful prints is a fun way to bring in the warmer weather and don poolside in the garden or picnics in the park. Keep it bright and bubbly with this colourful Camilla playsuit and style with a light blue heel and a fun up-do hairstyle. To mix it up, try wearing a sheer pullover or over-sized tee over the top.
