Dominican Diary 3: The Playsuits

Before jetting off to the Dominican Republic, I did get a tad bit obsessed with collecting playsuits, but that obsession was quickly put to rest.

I managed to find some absolute steals from ASOS, Boohoo and a little label called Parisian. Me being me, I just had to have them. I also love playsuits for a holiday as they’re comfortable, usually easy to throw on and don’t require any additional statement accessories.

Playsuits also remind me of the holiday time and I think it’s now become tradition to wear at least one whilst abroad.

I found this black floral playsuit on ASOS under the Parisian label. For £22 it was perfect and I wanted to embrace darker colours on this particular holiday. I love the ruffled hem at the bottom, the toe up waist details and the plunge neck detail makes it more sophisticated and perfect for a night out on holiday.

I kept the accessories simple with my metallic heels and silver hoops. I personally think it was a cute look with an sprinkle of sass.

I bought this ASOS bohemian playsuit last year for my holiday in Bali, but the relaxed fit just made it perfect for a chilled night on holiday and sometimes you ultimately just need to choose a funky print and feel comfortable. This is the perfect playsuit to dress up and down, I think i’ll love it for many more years to come.

This oriental blue playsuit is made so beautifully and I feel so classy whenever I wear it, but for this particular look I opted for my blue choker necklace from Topshop to oomph the glam factor and I wanted really dressed down hair, so I wore it in a low fishtail plait – I was channeling my inner Nicole Ritchie.

Finally, I chose this white playsuit from Boohoo which I believe cost me no more than £15! I loved the pattern and the top part of it has a really nice slightly oversized relaxed fit. This is perfect for holidays as you want to dress up but don’t always want to look too overdone. This allowed me to style my thin layered choker from Primark to create quite a 70s style.

The wide sleeves on the playsuit is flattering and is only cut to my elbow which stopped me from looking like a bat. I was initially drawn to the yellow outline in the sleeves, which really stands out against a white background and an array of quite matted colours. I also think the yellow outline could make people mistake it for being on the more higher end of the high street – such as Zara. As you know I am obsessed with Zara and am always on the lookout for cheap clothes that have that Zara inspiration all over it.

This playsuit is such a statement and looks effortlessly chic. I would wear this in the UK on a summers day with my hair scraped into a small bun and my favourite nude lipstick to create a perfect off – duty summer outfit.

I’m sure you’re fully aware now that I LOVE playsuits. But, I also swear by them for holidays and the summer because they’re versatile and can be worn time and time again. If you’re unsure about playsuits then pick a simple one shade playsuit and use accessories and lipsticks to vamp it up for either the day or evening.
