So I was doing some shopping research for a client and saw this piece and thought it is bang on for so many women I meet and work with – a printed jumpsuit is probably one of my must-have staples for Spring & Summer – but why not get it now and wear with a leather or bomber – see this week’s 5 Easy Pieces below.

Jumpsuits can be your best friend whatever your shape – if you just find the right one. The beauty of the subtle printed jumpsuit is that it hides a multitude of sins and has a daytime appeal that can easily work for bbq, wedding, party, brunch, hangs with the kids depending on the shoes you wear and accessories you add. It can be winterised easily with a leather jacket and layer a turtle neck underneath for more warmth. This one is particularly flattering for the curvy girls because of the wide straps – flattering V and it keeps close to the body without drowning any of those gorgeous woman curves. Love a bird print – in fact love any kind of print – always a winner.
Oasis is an old friend from the UK and they are a great online option – a wee bit girly and preppy and a wee bit fashion forward. Great for dresses.
Style Tip : When choosing a print – a dark background print is always more flattering – opt out of large blotchy prints if you don’t want to highlight certain parts of the body. Rule of thumb – if you are self conscious about a particular part of your body – or are petite your fist is about as big as you want to go for the most flattering effect. If you have a lot of black in your wardrobe – opt for navy / midnight blue to take you away from the dark side.
Don’t give up on a jumpsuit if you try on one and it is too short on the body – just keep trying – need more tips – check out How to Pick a Banging Jumpsuit here
Wine Suedette Biker Jacket
Sz 6 -16
For the growing number of vegans out there – this jacket is pretty perfect – suedette and looks expensive – it comes in black but I like the tonal effect of the burgundy/marsala colour – also this toughens up the pretty bird print.
Studded Suede Block Sandals
Obviously a great banging metallic or blush heel would work well with this jumpsuit but I am wanting these pieces to get heaps of wear in your everyday wardrobe and these little Isabel Marant inspired block heels will no doubt become a staple favourite come spring and summer – love the cool grey suede and the low heel – will work a treat with cropped frayed denim, summer dresses, midi skirts and more.. you’re welcome.
Grey Foldover clutch
A simple blush/grey foldover clutch – nice alternative to black and again opting for a vegan friendly one. This will work well with your pastels and lighter pieces in your wardrobe that are the main statements.
Sherriff & Cherry
These are a bit spesh – but from all my research with hundreds and hundreds of Personal Styling clients – most seem to splurge a bit on a pair of designer sunglasses – it is in Australia at least an accessory that you can get heaps of Price-Per-Wear value. These ones are designed by cool Aussie collabo between Aussie stylist Mark Vassal and Croatian creative director Mauro Massorotti and are made in Italy – bella regazzi ! They are like Linda Farrow, ZanZan, Illesteva, Westward Leaning just a bit off the usual suspects track and cool as chips.
