On those days when putting an outfit together seems like an unattainable task, reach for an oh-so-easy, all-in-one denim jumpsuit. Take a cue from model Sydney Lima and wear yours with a leopard-print coat and 70s-inspired platforms.

As well as serving up all the nostalgic feels, it gives us a head start on next year – this trend was seen in the Resort 2019 collections of Isabel Marant, Miu Miu and Chloé. Tone it down with neutral outerwear and understated accessories.
