Playsuits, Jumpsuits and Other Baffling Terms

Sewing  |  October 2nd 2013  |  0 Comment

If I’m being honest, fashion rather baffles me. Different things come and go each season, seemingly without rhyme or reason. I suppose if you’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada then you’ll probably remember Meryl Streep’s rather terrifying speech explaining how each item comes into being, trickling into existence down the rivers of first designer and then high street fashion, born out of the mind of some fabulous designer’s wilder imaginings. But just why are Chelsea boots in fashion this season, after having enjoyed a fifty year hiatus? In addition, why are aviator jackets still hot right now (what an odd expression), even though the ‘80s have been done to death?

 

I suppose sometimes it’s best to just let things go over one’s head. It might end up better that way. For example, if you’d have said the word ‘playsuit’ to me six months ago, I would have been rather baffled. To me, playsuits were something toddlers wore whilst romping around the garden or nursery – easily washable and easily replaceable. The thought of wearing one was completely alien.

 

Upon approaching the task of jetting off on holiday, however, I came across an altogether different type of playsuit. These playsuits were smart, funky and most definitely not suitable for toddlers. Lace cream fabric with gold buttons down the back. Leather-look black playsuits with a cut out panel. Slinky red numbers with frills around the waist. There were all sorts of beautiful designs just waiting to be tried on. So I did.

 

The playsuits were an instant success. I loved the look and feel of the style and felt instantly more glamorous. I’ve never really been a fan of wearing dresses or skirts on nights out, so having the option to wear something a little more demure was fantastic. Playsuits are perfect teamed with high heels or wedges, and can be paired with a blazer or bomber jacket as the weather turns colder.

 

Jumpsuits, that 1970s relic, are also big news this autumn. Again, a few months ago I would have mistaken these for something young children wore to do gym. They’re very similar to playsuits in style, although they usually have longer legs. If you’re a fan, why not try a denim playsuit teamed with cosy knitwear for a fabulous autumn daywear outfit? At night, opt for a little black jumpsuit and decadent gold jewellery for an ultra-glamorous look, complete with platform heels. If neither of these take your fancy, how about going for an ultra chic Aztec print jumpsuit, paired with a simple black or white boyfriend cardie and statement necklace? This is a look that can be taken from home, to work and out afterwards as well.

 

Perhaps the moral of the tale is to try not to worry too much about where fashion inspiration comes from, or the workings and meanings behind a particular name of a garment. Instead, we should focus on what we can get out of the latest fashion trends – what works for us, what doesn’t. That way we can find the clothes and accessories that will make us look and feel great.
