Jump to it!

If you haven't already heard, the jumpsuit is THE must-have piece of clothing this year. I know many of you will be recoiling in disgust at the very idea, but if you've never tried one on then I urge you to do so immediately! 

Not only are jumpsuits mega comfy, but they can look ultra chic with a pair of killer heels, or dressed down for the day in gladiator sandals. They suit all ages and body shapes - the only rule being: leave orange to the inmates! For style inspiration, just look at Anneka Rice in her Treasure Hunt days - proving jumpsuits are perfect for mums on the run! Or Bianca Jagger, who married her Rolling Stone while wearing a stylish white all-in-on. Suzi Quatro showed us all the jumpsuit even worked in leather. And who could forget Elvis trying to do it for the men in his rhinestone-encrusted eye-catcher?

If you want a piece of the action and you long to slip into a bit of 70s nostalgia, head to your nearest high street (M&S has a range of jumpsuits available, like the one pictured), or visit

As of last week, I'm now the proud owner of two jumpsuits... soon to be three!
