The fashion industry is forever telling us that the little black dress is the key investment piece that every woman must own. But if you’re over 5’8” like both Wendy and I and not the biggest fan of dresses, this can often prove to be quite a struggle. Enter the LBJ.
We’ve been witnessing the rise of the jumpsuit more and more over the last few seasons and at The Grown Up Edit we rely on them heavily for weddings, holidays and generally any occasion when jeans won’t kick it but we can’t quite face the formality of a dress. The jumpsuit also has an understated chicness to it’s laid back attitude and let’s be honest, anything that vaguely resembles the comfort of loungewear is bound to catch our attention.
I bought this Marks & Spencer jumpsuit to tackle the weird weather we’ve been experiencing lately and to make me look like I’ve made an effort on days when I’d really rather be sat on the sofa with Netflix and a Hobnob. With it’s wide legs teamed with Stan Smiths and a leather biker (again another amazing M&S find) it’s the perfect go-to outfit for work but will also be twice as chic when teamed with heels and a clutch for a more formal event. See our round up of the best LBJs below.
