The Grown-up Onesie
As a perennial comfort seeker happiest in a hoodie and PJs, I’m always on the lookout for the kind of ensembles that feel like they belong on the sofa but are actually made for the big wide world.
Enter the knitted jumpsuit; exactly the kind of thing to tackle weird weather and leave the house on the sort of days when all you really want to do is watch Jane Austen adaptations with tea and a box of dry cereal by your side. And unlike the rise and rise of ‘Athleisure’ (ick), this belted, buttoned and flared onesie actually looks strangely chic at the same time. Although it’s worth mentioning the see through back of it which is the one part that doesn’t lend itself to city life; between these shots I had to keep backing towards walls so as not to give passers by an intimate insight into my underwear choices. As such, I’ve realised this might actually be best served on the beach and would feel pretty amazing buttoned over a bikini as the sun starts to cool down.
I bought this Asos jumpsuit on a whim a while ago and it’s only now coming into its own and getting a taste of the outdoors. With a fun summer lying ahead, this is one piece that will definitely be coming with me in my suitcase.
