A Wardrobe Must Have & Mutli-Tasker Plus New Outfit Post

A week & a day till we fly off on holiday so my mind is well & truly on what clothes to take.  One item I knew straight away would be jetting off with me was my Zara jumpsuit that I bought last year.  Apart from the tricky problem of if I need the loo whilst out & having to undo the buttons down the back (something so far I've managed to avoid!!) it's a great item for dressing up or down & a change of accessories can really change the look (click here to see my post from last year on how you can style one).

So in case you're wondering what to take with you on your hols here's my picks of the best jumpsuits currently on the high street.  Starting with this one from Marks & Spencers, which apart from the belt is quite similar in style to mine & a great wardrobe classic.

If you're not over keen on strapless then Mango do this similar jumpsuit with spaghetti straps.

Of for a slightly more fitted look this one from Whistles is just gorgeous.

Of if black is a bit too dressy for you how about this lovely cami styled one from M&S.

Next up a similar style but patterned instead of plain.  I just love the colours of this Oasis one & think this would be perfect for an evening on your summer holidays with some gold sandals & accessories but would also be so easy to dress down once home with a denim jacket & pumps.

If however, you'd rather be able to wear a bra with straps then how about this jumpsuit from Mango.  Add a statement necklace & perhaps swap the belt for a coloured or leopard print one to add a bit more interest & create another look.

I love the neckline & sleeves on this next one from Mint Velvet, such a classic that would look good with flats for a holiday & heels for a night out.

Moving onto jumpsuits that have a a bit more coverage & this lace one from Marks & Spencers looks fab.

Or how about this gorgeous one from Mint Velvet, which has such an elegant feel to it.

More coverage with this next one from ASOS, which looks stunning just teamed with a pair of heels as shown below but could so easily be dressed down with some flats, denim jacket & cross body bag.

Or what about this patterned monochrome one from Marks & Spencers.

Moving onto colour & I love the colour of this Warehouse one with the mesh panels.

More of a casual vibe with this denim one from New Look, which would be just perfect for sightseeing whilst on holiday or city breaks.

Now I'm not a huge fan of the playsuit, having owned a couple many, many years ago & when looking back on pictures promised myself I would never wear anything like it EVER again but I'm sorely tempted by this Mango one.  Perfect for teaming with a pair of sandals....but dare I even go there?!!!

Finishing with my dream one, which is a bit pricey & is something I wouldn't have thought of looking at.  I'm so blaming Abbey Clancy for this after seeing her looking stunning & totally rocking the look.  Of course her amazing figure might have something to do with it looking so good!!

Finally here's what I'm wearing today.

Camisole - Zara
Necklace - Bought in Majorca
Leather Cuff - Banana Republic
Capri Trousers - Zara
Sandals - Mango

Chic & Simple

Camisole - Mango £19.99
Leather Cuff - Mango Now £9.99
Trousers - Mango £29.99
Sandals - Mango Now £29.99

So are you a lover of the jumpsuit or does the thought of having to try & get it undone when paying a visit to the loo put you off once & for all?!  I've love to hear your thoughts not to mention how you style yours.

See you tomorrow.
