Once the reserve of the fashion brave, an all-in-one is now the savviest choice for all of us. Comfortable and stylish, it holds a similar, versatile status to a dress but elevates you to a fashion-forward look instantly. The high street is a beacon for jumpsuits this spring/summer and while many come in black or navy, there’s a new wave of colour-pop versions and pastel shades to choose from.

Wearing a jumpsuit means there’s no need to think about teaming pieces together, it’s a simple case of finding the right heel and choosing the appropriate accessories. Often, an all-in-one requires little extra detail – the cut and colour packs a punch on its own.

If you still need convincing that now’s the time to invest in a summer jumpsuit, then our round-up features a style to suit everyone…
