You may think that playsuits are not for you, but let’s face it – you probably decided that just because you only got to try a playsuit cut and design that didn’t suit your style and/or body type. But, as it seems that the whole world is following the Aussie-originated trends, playsuits have become one of the most popular summer outfits, and it would be a real shame to miss your chance to rock this trend confidently. In the end, it all comes down to finding the right design and ways to style up your playsuit so that it can look truly amazing and gorgeous just as you are.

Length and style are very important
In order to find the right kind of playsuit and wear it fabulously, you first need to consider its length. Essentially, the most important thing is to find the right fit for the crotch. Ladies that are taller can get away with a looser and more casual playsuit, but if you’re of a petite frame, definitely stick to fitted only playsuits. What’s more, the overall style or cut of the playsuit plays a huge role in how the outfit will look on you. This solely depends on your body type so don’t give up until you find the best kind of cut that looks flattering on you. For instance, if you have a large bust, playsuits to go for should have a V neck or a shirt-style top, or even a strapless top with great support, obviously.
It’s not all about the playsuit
Of course, a playsuit would be the main piece in your whole outfit, but in order to make it look absolutely fabulous, you need to think about the accessories, prints and other details to go with it. After all, this will allow you to transform your playsuits from casual to more formal and even business-like outfits. For example, if you want to dress for work, your playsuit should be relatively simple in design. You can pair it with a structured blazer and formal shoes. When it comes to jewelry, keep it simple and dainty. On the other hand, when you opt for a fun playsuit with interesting prints and pair it with light sneakers or sandals as well as some chic or boho jewelry and even flowy cardigans, you can look amazingly stylish for a weekend get-together and other more casual occasions.
Layering is key
Another trend that’s equally popular in Australia and the rest of the world is, undoubtedly, layering. In that respect, even playsuits need to be layered well so that you can truly make a fashion statement. Layering playsuits with other garments is relatively easy. Of course, some of the most popular playsuits in Australia are boho-inspired which allows them to be paired with plenty of different-style garments to create your own unique look. In general, blazers, parkas, denim jackets and cardigans make for a perfect addition when wearing a playsuit. You can also use scarves and belts, different-length stockings, etc. Both stiletto and chunky heels go well with playsuits when it comes to dressier occasions. However, sneakers, ballet shoes and sandals (especially gladiator sandals) are also great for more casual options. Don’t forget to add some jewelry and even ankle bracelets for added flair.
What about a night out?
Wearing a playsuit for a night out is not a mission impossible. Quite the contrary. Still, the key here, like with any other playsuit style, is to find the right fit and cut. The rest is all about the fun. In general, playsuits that have lace details or sequins are perfect for a night out. On the other hand, you may enjoy monochromatic looks, such as all-black or all-white. Obviously, pair the playsuit with some fun party jewelry that matches the place you’re going to for the night out, and wear some stylish high heels. Complete the look with a classy or festive clutch.
Playsuits may be a bit more challenging than other garments when it comes to picking out the right size, style and fit, but this is all well worth the effort. After all, the Aussie secret to looking trendy, fashionable and confident all the time is precisely in the effort that ladies put into finding something that fits them perfectly and looks gorgeous on their particular body type.
