Styling a Playsuit Day to Night

Wardrobe Wednesday | styling a playsuit day to night

I’m joining Rachael from Champagne S’il Vous Plait for Wishlist Wednesday.

After some super hot super humid summer weather, my mind has drifted towards autumn style.  Helped along by planning for Autumn Style File, of course!  I’m compiling lots of fun daily prompts for our challenge. Shall we do 14 days or a whole month? Let me know!

Summer officially ends in a month’s time, but whilst March brings autumn, it doesn’t necessarily bring cooler weather.

I’ve been thinking of transition pieces to bridge summer and autumn style, with an eye to winter style too.

With that in mind, I’ve chosen to style a sweet playsuit for day and night.  My styling ideas would work equally well with a little dress, a culottes jumpsuit or even just a pair of skinnies and a classic white T shirt.

A pretty mustard floral playsuit for the ladies whose curves have curves works back with a classic denim jacket equally well as a classic leather biker jacket.

For a day look, team your playsuit with a practical-yet-stylish leather backpack and old skool kicks.

I have this Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack in tan with gold hardware, and I’ve been lusting after the black and silver version.  If you want to nail comfort and style, it’s all about Adidas Originals Superstars.

To amp up your playsuit for night, switch denim for leather for a badass babe vibe.  Add some good girl giggles with adorable glitter heeled sandals. They’re a bargain buy from Rubi.  I’ve ordered the gold glitter and the pink + red version too!

Finish your look and show some personality with pop of colour statement earrings.

    I finally got myself a playsuit! I don’t wear shorts. Legs aren’t quite what they used to be. So this playsuit thing was a big step. I find it makes me look a bit boxy though. Meah … might as well roll with it hey? I found adding wedges helped with that a little.
    Great post. Have I told you how much I love your bloggy aesthetic? Really really love the way it’s looking. #teamlovinlifeReplyCancel

    Love the ideas here but not sure I’ll ever be able to look good in a play Suit!ReplyCancel

    I can’t face the idea of getting mostly nude to pee 😀 But I adore that SW denim!ReplyCancel

    Not sure if my first comment worked – I had some formatting issues…

    I don’t have any playsuits, but have been recently tempted by some pantsuits! #teamlovinlifeReplyCancel

    I don’t actually own any playsuits and am not sure I’d want a summer one (with shorts) but I’m starting to see a few longer pantsuits I quite like, including a Leina Broughton one that doesn’t look too scary for a larger body type like mine!ReplyCancel

    Such a cute combo! Love the playfulness of the jacket with the play suit. Nerd life! <3ReplyCancel

    I actually have that jumpsuit! But I bought a size too small, so now I have to wait a little bit before I can wear it LOL xReplyCancel

    Man that mustard playsuit is cute! I’m wondering is it all one piece and is it difficult for going to the loo? Love your suggestions for styling it day through to night! #TeamLovinLifeReplyCancel

    For some reason I couldn’t see the pic in the body of the post, but looking at it in the thumbnail, man I love that look! Especially the daytime denim and kicks with that flirty mustard playsuit. #TeamLovinLifeReplyCancel
