On previous holidays my go-to evening outfits have been mostly maxi dresses. They are easy to wear, comfortable and require little thought when it comes to accessories. To cut down on packing I usually take a neutral-coloured bag and sandals, plus a few pieces of jewellery that will work with any outfit. But as I mentioned in last week’s link up post, my holiday wardrobe needed a refresh.
When I got my first jumpsuit last Summer (which I wore lots on this holiday) I was really surprised at how versatile they can be. Although they are a complete outfit, you can so easily change the look of them by adding layers such as a jacket or shirt over the top. In that way they make an ideal day-to-night outfit option. I ordered three Issa jumpsuits from House of Fraser and ended up keeping all of them. With an ever-expanding collection, it’s fair to say that jumpsuits are now my favourite alternative to a maxi dress.
To make this jumpsuit office-appropriate I’d layer a shirt or fitted jacket over it, and team with a pair of elegant heels. It’s quite easy to undo so going to the bathroom certainly isn’t an issue. The fabric quality is excellent; it’s heavy enough to hang nicely without being too thick. I wore this in the evening when the temperature was still around 25c and it was just right. For jewellery I simply added a bangle and pair of tassel earrings. A neutral bag and pair of wedge espadrilles completed the look.
