Summer Playsuits – My Top 5 Picks
When it comes to summer and sunshiney days, sartorial simplicity is always best. You know, because if you don’t get out into the 30 minutes of Irish sunshine at speed you might just miss it. With this in mind, playsuits are the rig out du jour and I’ve plucked my top five from the virtual rails for your perusal. Ready?
ASOS Palm Print Playsuit - €31
This crew necked, skinny belted ASOS number can be styled up or down depending on your plans. Add a chunky statement necklace with high neutral wedges and you could sport this to the bar with ease. For days spent exploring or beach trekking on hols, pair it with flat tennis shoes and an oversized sunhat. Effortlessly cool.
BooHoo Elvie Large Baroque Swing Playsuit- €16
In eye catching brights, this baroque playsuit from BooHoo sits more like a swing slip than a one piece. Gorgeous for catching the breeze on lazy beach days, pop a large rattan beach bag over your shoulder and you’re set for the day.
Lipsy Mixed Print Playsuit - €37
Strapless and super light, this mixed print playsuit is the perfect cover up for over swimwear on holidays or simply out and about enjoying the sunshine. Keep accessories to a minimum so as not to clash with the beautifully busy print. Think metallic sandals and a simple cuff bracelet. Fab.
River Island Black Geometric Wrap Playsuit - €40
This monochrome geometric print playsuit is one of the most versatile of our picks. Structured enough to be paired with a studded clutch and heels for evening wear yet a cross body bag and flat sandals could play it down too. The longer sleeves mean those not too fond of their upper arms will feel completely comfortable without the need for a jacket or wrap.
TopShop Crochet Panel T-Shirt Playsuit - €60
This bright coral pink playsuit is the ideal pop of colour for summer months. The flattering lace panels with cap sleeves make it an easy wear too. More structured than most of our choices, pair this with black, neutral or gold shoes or liven it up even more with chunky turquoise jewellery. It’s a keeper.
Are you a playsuit lover in the warmer weather? They’re like onesies only not tragic.
