Playsuits are perfect for romps in the sun – Daily Mail

Last summer some of us hesitantly dipped our toes into the playsuit trend, unsure of just how cool the style really was. Others simply refused point-blank. Fast forward a year – suddenly we’re all converts and playsuits are everywhere this summer.
Hitting the streets this week we noticed that stylish Londoners had shunned the full-length look  –  probably because they didn’t want to be mistaken for Phil Mitchell in a boiler suit at the Arches – and embraced the cropped romper. They are being worn on the beach, at festivals and even on Oxford Street with as much carefree attitude as a pair of shorts or a sundress.
Time to play: London girls pull of the playsuit look. From left: Hannah Grey, 23, dancer, in playsuit, £40, Topshop; Rebecca Jackson, 17, in jumpsuit, £35, Topshop; Lisa Curry, 25, in playsuit, £35, H&M

If you prefer your clothes with a tougher edge, snap up a playsuit in denim or simple jersey. American Apparel has super-skinny jersey versions for around £19, but be warned these require ballerina figures to carry them off successfully.
Jump to it: paint-splash print, £229.20 (from £573), Chloe at; demim, £35, Miss Selfridge; Busy Lizzie print, £40, Topshop

Those with curves should try Miss Selfridge’s fresh denim playsuit complete with pretty bow detailing on the straps (£35).
Labels lovers on a budget might be glad to hear that Topshop’s cute mini-bow print playsuit with flirty cami top and tailored short bottoms (£50) is the perfect copy of Paul & Joe’s Bonnenui playsuit, currently on sale at (£165).
And if you want a playsuit for summer parties, Killah’s sexy black silk version is loosely fitted but its scoop neck and silver buttons add a glam edge (£65, We also love Twenty8Twelve’s dressy, blue silk neck-tie suit (£23, Complete with longer culotte-style bottoms, it’s super-flattering  –  which is no surprise given that it was designed by clothes horse Sienna Miller and her sister.
