As summer weddings and parties mound - so does our anxiety to find the perfect frock. Sometimes, dare I say it, you want to be comfortable while still looking glamorous. The thought of 8 hours in the heat wearing a body-con dress sounds frightening! Which is why I swear by the alternative to the traditional option: a jumpsuit. Now, hear me out! Before you write off the whole idea based on it not being sexy, or formal enough - peruse my top three picks, below.
The Classic — 1970s Geoffrey Beene Couture Backless Jumpsuit & Jacket
This may be my very favourite piece at Shrimpton Couture! The halter & low cut back paired with the translucent & silky fabric- makes for the sexiest little evening number. Also, the structural jacket elevates your look with a touch of editorial glamour.
I would suggest this for the first-time jumpsuit wearer as the wide cut of the pant leg gives the illusion of a full length dress. Shop now >

This piece adds two of this season's biggest trends: Silky lingerie as outerwear & cropped, kick flares. The perfect blush-pink piece to pair with glistening metallics & sky-high platforms. Shop now >
The Dramatic — 1970s Citrus Silk Jersey La Mendola Jumpsuit & Overlay
A look definitely fit for the woman who loves a dramatic piece, which may be why this label was highly coveted by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor & Rita Hayworth. This citrus wide leg pantsuit of breezy silk jersey with silk chiffon overlay - is the ultimate 'look at me!' outfit. Go bold and pair with red lipstick & gold accessories! Shop now >
