For my Monday MUST HAVE this week I've decided to keep with the theme of the current trend that I have been showcasing. As I have decided to break up the trend for each of my additional posts so each post is a little about each facet of the trend. My ONE X 5 will be on my Ultimate favourite jeans and one of my MUST HAVEs the Skinny Cargo Jean and for steal her style I will stick with an ultimate style star and go with the Sport Luxe side so the MUST HAVE for this week is THE JUMPSUIT/PLAYSUIT, covering of course the Urban side of the trend.

This piece of clothing comes in both the longer length, the jumpsuit and the shorter length, the playsuit (or romper as it's know in the U.S). Both fabulous articles of clothing, both MUST HAVES. The jumpsuit is great for a sophisticated night out if you go for a silky or satin fabric in a block colour or metallic. The playsuit is the primary article of clothing for festival fashion and definitely something everybody should have in their closet.
So who's wearing it, well the simple answer to that is Everyone.

Celebs in Jumpsuits

And in the stars wearing Playsuits

And these are just a small few. This would definitely be a trend that celebrities are very fond of. Here are some of my favourites available now.

I will always give a warning when it comes to jumpsuit trend. When it's right it's fantastic, but when it goes wrong it goes really wrong. For girls like me strapless and bandeau style jumpsuits are a big no no, I have a large chest and broad shoulders, these style will make me look even bigger. Be careful too when it comes to the dreaded camel toe, it's not cute so avoid like the plague. If you feel like the dreaded is appearing go a size up, it's not the end of the world, sizes are always different and shouldn't be followed adamently at all.

And most importantly girls, be fabulous not a flasher

All the designer clothes can be found on Shopbop and Revolve or look at the designer's websites for further inspiration.
What do ya'll think, will you splurge or stay with the pennys for this trend? Do you like the Jumpsuit/Playsuit?
