Red Silk Playsuit, Topshop, £45

Mary Kate Olsen, Jessica SImpson and Tess Daly have all be heading out in fun mini playsuits over recent weeks and now they are taking the high street by storm.

The playsuit is a notoriously hard look to pull off but this summer they are set to be huge so be brave and embrace some summer fun.

Check out the playsuits we found on the high street

This is a great holiday look because a simple playsuit can be dressed down for a daytime beach outfit or glammed up with heels and bling for hitting the bars at night- and it takes up hardly any room in your suitcase!


Blue Playsuit, Red Herring, Now £9

However without careful thought a playsuit can cause a total fashion disaster and is not suitable for all shapes and sizes.

If you are a bit on the short side then it's essential that you wear heels with a playsuit to avoid looking stumpy. A good pair of summer wedges will give you enough height to let you show off your legs with confidence.

Larger ladies need to watch out for the playsuit too. The more fitted and shorter styles can be very unforgiving and show off way too much flesh.


Black Strappy Playsuit, Miss Selfridge, £30

If you are bigger on the top half then choose a style that is more lose fitting above the waist to draw attention to your hot bum and gorgeous legs.

Or if your bottom and hips are your problem areas then opt for a looser bottom half and a lower cut on the neckline. This will balance out your shape and give you fab curves.


Floral Wrap Playsuit, Topshop, £38

If you are a little shy about braving the playsuit look then ease yourself in gently with darker colours. We all know black is slimming so start with a plain style that will flatter your figure.

If you're ready to go all out then there are some fab bold playsuits out there. Floral prints are everywhere at the minute and make a great summer statement. Be careful to choose simple accessories if you want to avoid colour overload.
