(Reiss tuxedo jumpsuit and clutch, Zara patent courts)
When it comes to finding that must have piece, my subconscious formula seems to be beautiful tailoring with a touch of femininity. This must be why I find androgyny incredibly sexy. Nothing and no one can beat a girl who can pull off menswear – totally confident and in control of her life. I’ve been searching for a while for the perfect jumpsuit to fit my subconscious checklist. The right jumpsuit is the ideal alternative to a cocktail dress. With just a splash of colour, be it accessories or that matt red lipstick, the entire look is complete and so effortlessly chic. So you can imagine my absolute excitement when I found this at Reiss. I actually had an eureka moment when I saw it hanging on the rack (complete with bright halo lights and a full orchestra). Tuxedo lapel, check. Double breasted buttons, check. Wide legged trousers, check. Arm slit, check. I knew my search for that perfect jumpsuit was finally over.
