With my summer holidays finally just a few weeks away, I've been putting together a list of everything I wish to take and needless to say it's basically my entire wardrobe. I ridiculously over-pack every time so in the attempt to cut down the amount of clothes I take and bring back intact and unworn, I have been trying to find pieces that are easy to throw on as well as lightweight to endure the 30+ degrees heat of Algarve at the end of the month. Enter this gorgeous Satin Wide Leg Cropped Jumpsuit from the newest Abbey Clancy's Picks for Matalan.
It's safe to state that 2016 has seen designers take inspiration from various fashion eras, and the flare-wearing comes from the 1970s which I briefly talked previously on the blog here. With seventies throwbacks on the catwalks (S/S 2016 and already A/W 2017), find yourself a cropped flared jumpsuit and you will be rocking it now towards the end of summer and right through autumn too. And that is exactly what I thought when I saw this jumpsuit. Not only is it perfect for me to take on holiday for a night outing but this elegant one piece is the perfect replacement for the cocktail dress for a classier event.
And, we all know what khaki means, the military look never truly leaves us and is always on trend. Just this morning I saw a girl wearing khaki head to toe and boy, did she look stylish! And despite being army-inspired or modern-safari, the colour makes this jumpsuit very feminine and I’ve seen a lot of khaki on the high street with a much more feminine essence. If you think khaki only works for autumn and winter, think again as khaki has recently been in the spotlight for spring/summer too, making it an all year round favourite shade. Not only does the colour work great with most skin tones, pair it with denim, both white and black accessories, or even wedges and you are ready to go.
Abbey Clancy being the classy woman she is, styled the jumpsuit with black barely there sandals (see here) and I love how chic the look is. I, on the other hand, being the most casually dressed person you will probably ever meet, thought to team it with my trusty Superstars because I like comfort and a bit of edge. Didn't I tell you it goes with almost anything? Versatility here really is key and as one would expect, I definitely see myself wearing this jumpsuit on repeat in the next few months. Waist clenching, figure hugging and lightweight material, this a must-pack this season!
