Your wardrobe should be filled with great basics that you can wear often, with ease, and without too much thought involved. These pieces are well made, often in neutral colours and can transition from summer to winter. Today we’re talking jumpsuits: a black one can be worn for smart occasions, or all-day adventures, and everything in between.

Take a look at our five favourite options to get a head start on some great styling.

1 Minimal-magic jumpsuit

For aforementioned all-day adventures, this jumpsuit is paired with comfy Birkenstocks (trust us, they’re cool) as well as a straw hat and ring-embellished accessories (AKA the hottest accessories of the moment).
