Move over the LBD; 2015 has a new star player, and it’s as comfortable as it is chic. Enter M&S Collection’s sleek jumpsuit, says womenswear editor Charlene Barton
Long gone are the days when femininity was exclusive to a pin-up figure and a full face of make-up. While still relevant, fashion has moved on, thanks to the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Coco Chanel and Kate Moss – proving that girls can literally wear the trousers and still exude an effortless sophistication. This season’s hero piece comes in the guise of the humble jumpsuit, as seen on the spring/summer runways at Chloé and Stella McCartney – and it just so happens to be my own current personal obsession. Enter M&S Collection’s sleek and quietly elegant design: wear it off-duty with flats, switching to sharp pointed heels for the office or evening cocktails.
