Summer trend: Jumpsuits

There’s no doubt jumpsuits are the ‘must have’ item to add to your wardrobe this summer, they’re cute, funky and can be dressed up or down which is perfect for those summer days that turn into long summer nights.  I don’t think there are too many stores you can enter at the moment that aren’t carrying some form of jumpsuit or playsuit so we have probably become a little spoilt for choice. While a wide range of options can be a blessing, it can also be a curse when all you want to do it find the right one for you without having to try on 100 different styles. To save you all the time and effort I have put together an edit of the best jumpsuits and playsuits on the the market for every shape, occasion and budget.


Sheike have a great range of high quality, showstopper jumpsuits perfect for evenings in some standout colours and prints.

1. Fortress Jumpsuit – $149.95

Stunning green jumpsuit with crepe finish, drawstring waistband, deep V neck and side pockets. Relaxed but elegant chic would look great with a pair of strappy black heels.

2. Worldwide Jumpsuit – $159.95

Cobalt blue with a wide leg and deep low back. Features a high neck and pleated chest detail, great for giving the illusion of more bust. This one nipps in at the waist, add a wide, silver metal belt to really set it off.

3. First Class Jumpsuit – $159.95

Fully lined mid-weight jumpsuit with V shape bustier, loose fit pants, side pockets and pleated waist detail. Excellent choice for a woman with a moderate bust.

4. Planter Box Jumpsuit – 179.95

Slouchy fit jumpsuit with fabric tie waist to cinch you in. Wide leg pants and V-shapped back, this one is perfect for a fuller figure.

5. Amore Jumpsuit – $149.95

Classic, elegant jumpsuit with a low V front and back to give it that wow factor. Add a gold or silver metal belt and you will be the hottest thing since sliced bread.


For Bardot it’s all about having fun in a playsuit. I particularly love the first two in this selection, both are fun, funky, easy to wear and just a little sexy.  Playsuits are also great for elongating legs for the shorter girls out there.

bardot1. Bowie Playsuit – SALE $40

This is one of the best playsuits I have seen around in a long time and best of all it is on sale for an incredible $40! Great for all shapes and sizes, however would probably suit a smaller busted woman best as the high neckline and shape around the chest would be flattering and due to the back detail, an invisible bra would be the only option.

2. Emilia Playsuit – $89.95

This playsuit would be great for dinner and cocktails with your girlfriends somewhere nice like Byblos at Portside. Add a belt, maybe a bright colour? Red? and some killer heels and you knock ’em dead in this number.

3. Wrap front playsuit – $99.95

This ivory playsuit has elegant chic written all over it. Would look fantastic with a bright, statement necklace and perhaps a belt for a day out shopping or lunch with friends. This is a fun, fresh, summery must have.

4. Katie Lace jumpsuit – $89.95

The beautiful lace in canteloupe, sweetheart neckline and exposed zip at the back make this a real summer party essential. Cream, white or even clear (a Chanel-esque clutch perhaps?)  would really compliment this sweet ensemble.


From the classic elegance of the ‘Glow Jumpsuit’ to the fun, funky ‘I Spy’ paysuit, Dissh have a jumpsuit or playsuit for a wide range of occasions and budgets.

dissh1. Glow Jumpsuit – $259 (Maurie and Eve)

WOW I absolutely LOVE this jumpsuit!! A little more expensive than the others in this post but so worth it! The design is absolutely stunning, the fit is exceptional and this style will flatter almost everyone. Do yourself a favour and go try this one on.

2. Neon Aztec Playsuit – $69.95 (MinkPink)

Featuring a drawstring waistband and side pockets this is a super flattering playsuit that will enhance your bust, minimize your waist and elongate your legs while still being bang on trend in the neon aztec print. This is a winner.

3. I Spy Playsuit – 59.95

This bright, fun playsuit is perfect for summer. Add neon yellow or purple heels and accessories to enhance the great colours throughout. This one is great for those petite girls looking to add curves to all the right places.

My favourite new addition to my wardrobe is this cute playsuit from Events for $149.95 but get in quick because this one is selling out fast!
