The 2014 Denim Jumpsuit

Style Theory: The 'double denim' look is now acceptable, so how about making life a little easier and embracing the Denim jumpsuit? It is a perfect pull-on-and-go item that can be easily dressed up with a pair of heels or dressed down with metallic or jewelled sandals. It looks edgy, is fabulously comfortable and as it is denim, it goes with pretty much any jacket/coat (with the exception of a denim jacket) are you ready to give it a go?

Here are the best looks from the streetstylers:
This is the MiH boilersuit belted looks fab with the red clutch. 
Kate Moss has been working the boilersuit look for years and always looks fabulous.


Jessical Alba wears silver sandals with her denim jumpsuit.

A silver statement necklace looks fab with a denim jumpsuit, Rachel Zoe shows it styled to perfection.

Love this look, the pastels, the red bag, the denim jumpsuit..just stunning

As you can see from the images above, it is best to keep footwear feminine, denim jumpsuits look fab with strappy heels and for the daytime keep footwear girly by wearing metallic or jewelled sandals, this is not a birkenstock outfit. Mix with pastel (pale blues and greys) cardigans and add a pop of colour  by clashing your pastels with a bright red bag (as in the last image).

The denim jumpsuit is so versatile and as with all jumpsuits you have to be prepared to try on quite a few different styles to find the right cut which will fit your body shape and flatter you. I think they look better baggier, they tend to look too 80s when tight so if in doubt try a bigger size to compare.

Here are the best available on the high street now:


MiH Boiler Suit at Matches £295



Topshop Moto Tencel Denim Boilersuit £68

Denim jumpsuits are such a cool, easy option for a summer evening out. I have ordered the Mango and Zara jumpsuit, I am normally a small in Zara but had to size up as it was a bit too poofy in the small

I am a huge fan of jumpsuits I have a black one I bought from Jigsaw and I have worn it for years here it is a few years ago and I still wear it to loads of parties and on holiday each year:

  2. I LOVE the Primark one!!! I have a Zara one from last year which is great but warm so I don't wear it too much...but they are fun - I need to get it out again and play around with the styling. How does that Mango tee fit - I'm going to order it but can't decide on a Eur M or L - I'm normally a 12 -14 up top - what do you think? xxx

    1. Hi Joanna, the Primark one is pretty cool isn't it I will be searching it out! I thought you may have one already, look forward to seeing you styling it, i just adore them. The Mango Tee is probably about right definitely not small..same as Zara sizing, mine is S and is definitely fairly generous xx

  3. The Primark one is very tempting as it scratches this fashion itch without costing a fortune if you only wear it once or twice xx

  4. I did order the Zara one as I really fancied it for lounging around the house (not sure I'd be brave enough to wear it out....no matter how stunning they look on others!) but then I got my sensible head on & decided I had plenty of other things so back it went. I know as soon as I see you looking stunning in yours Frances I'm going to regret it.

  5. I like them but I'm not sure I would wear one. Having said that I have my eye on a petite one in Next http://www.next.co.uk/g3992s2#660801g39 It's been in and out of my basket so many times. I think I need to hit the button!

    1. So cute I love it, would love to see what it was like in 'real life' I was actually looking at a kids one in Next, they go up to an age £16 and it was lovely and I was wondering if it would fit me? xx

    2. It probably will - I just ordered a load of stuff from Next ... from the girls section. Unfortunately, none of it worked like I had imagined it would in my head.

    2. It came today! Going to keep it, in the medium, bit more slouchy which is how I prefer. It's a good price isn't it, even for Zara? When to wear it though? Dressed up with heels and dressed down with flat sandals? What do you think? Need help on this one! A x
