The best ways to work a jumpsuit.

You know the drill, a closet full of clothes and not a thing to wear. An instant style staple is the jumpsuit and it has come into its own this season. Pair with trainers for an easy, breezy daytime look or a strappy sandal for night. Wardrobe crisis averted.

Florentine Thayat revolutionised womenswear a century ago when he designed the first jumpsuit and this one-piece wonder has been with us ever since.

From the utilitarian boiler suit to the dazzling, jewel-encrusted numbers of Elvis' Las Vegas days, the jumpsuit has had an interesting progression.

But when it comes to versatility, nothing beats it. This perennial classic remains a fashionista favourite because it's easy, elegant and always contemporary.

This season there are a multitude of options, from relaxed, laid-back styles to dressier, tailored pieces with a luxe touch. There's a jumpsuit out there for everyone.

Give your wardrobe a cobalt colour injection with Cooper's Cuba-ism Dream jumpsuit. Amplify your look with bold, statement accessories and make the best-dressed list on the night.

Look no further than Miss Crabb's dance-inspired Bazaar Romper to wow everyone with an unbridled pop of colour. It's a perfect mix of comfort and style. Call me mellow yellow any day.

Keeping it bright, embrace a bit of daytime glam with Ruby's Night Owl pantsuit. The soft tailoring and cute pockets make this piece a winner. Transform day to night with some gold or silver accessories.

Make your one-piece play a starring role with World's Moca Jumpsuit, a floral fiesta of fabulous. There's so much going on with this fabric you just need to keep everything else minimal.

High-voltage orange is one of the hottest shades this season. Make heads turn in Kookai's playful Bondi jumpsuit. Wallflowers need not apply.

Quirky just hit the next level with Gorman's cheeky Giant Squid pantsuit. I adore the tongue-in-cheek print and fun palazzo-style pant. Pop art chic at its best.

For a sleeker, sophisticated take on the pantsuit, slink into TK Store's silk number. Make it your new-season staple, it's the epitome of effortless chic.
