It looks set to be a glorious summer. But, as the days heat up, and we frantically search the shops for seasonal pieces, it can bring a whole world of problems.

So if, like us, you struggle sartorially when the weather starts to heat up, an all-in-one is the answer. Whether you need to be smart, casual or even find a stand-out outfit for one of many weddings in your calendar, you can find everything you need in a jumpsuit.

Once the reserve of farmers and lumberjacks, jumpsuits, playsuits and dungarees now come in a wealth of styles - whether it be feminine and floral or classically tailored. And there's no sign of them going out of fashion any time soon. 

From classic utility denim to tropical and even cocktail styles, check out the best of what this season has to offer in our gallery below.

  • Fear and Loathing playsuit

    Inspired by cult film, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, this olive-green House of Holland cotton-barkcloth playsuit is loud and proud. A dream festival piece, or just for weekends escaping the city. Wear open over a white t-shirt or button to the top for the full military effect. 


  • Crochet-trimmed pinstripe jumpsuit

    Who knew crochet and pinstripe could be such a winning combination? Goen J, that's who. A feminine twist on a masculine fabric gives this jumpsuit a certain je ne sais quoi. The lace-seamed pockets give a subtle detailing whilst the loose cut keeps to the angrogyny of the style. 


  • Pencil stripe culotte jumpsuit

    The fifties-style cut brings the cheeky back to this jumpsuit. The tie-front creates a subtle keyhole effect, while the wide legs keep it classy. Wear it while wandering the Riviera and sipping on Champagne. 


  • Leopard poplin playsuit

    Bring out your wild side with this utility-style sketched leopard print playsuit. Made from light cotton-poplin, it will keep you cool in what's set to be a scorching summer. A tie-waist and pockets give it that added utilitarian edge. Pair with Birkenstocks for the full look. 


  • Black skinny dungarees

    A black dungaree is a wardrobe essential, and this MOTO one is great for the skinny leg. Roll up and team with plimsolls, or pair with heels for a modern evening look.

  • Paisley jumpsuit

    If you think florals for spring are far too clichéd, then this paisley print is the one for you. The tie-waist detailing makes it perfect for adjusting to all bodyshapes, and the linen fabric will keep you cool on the muggiest of days. 


  • Floral culotte jumpsuit

    Channel seventies style in this floral culotte jumpsuit. The cut stops it from being too girlie, while the print screams of summer barbecues and pints of Pimms. It will also take you seamlessley from day to night - which is an added bonus.

    Jumpsuits aren't just for casual, and this monochrome French Connection one attests to that. The wrap front creates a deep V-shaped neckline, while soft pleating keeps things smart and feminine. Goodbye cocktail dress hello, you.

  • Bib-front dungaree shorts

    Bring out your inner child in this cute-as-a-button short dungaree from See by Chloé.

Team with flip flops for a walk on the beach.


  • Neon floral boilersuit

    A real investment piece, this Diane Von Furstenburg jumpsuit has the look of a two-piece thanks to the contrasting florals, for those who aren't quite ready for a full boilersuit.
