You're laughing and shaking your head now, but trust me, come Spring 2009, you'll be contemplating the jumpsuit. You'll be looking at a quirky one-piece in a slouch fabric and wondering 'could I get away with it'. Shown on the catwalks of New York, London and Milan so far, there've been dozens of all-in-one styles from a wide-reaching sphere of designers...


There are no rules with this style, which is at least one good thing about it. Your jumpsuit could be silk, denim, lycra or cotton, and it could be printed, textured or classic black. Trousers are long and slouchy, pegged or rolled, or cropped at the knee (not very flattering unless you're Aggy).


For the more adventurous there are ditsy flowered jumpsuits with corset tops, watercolour printed silks and bright asymmetric offerings...or you could give this one a miss all together?
