Alex: A well-cut playsuit is one of the greatest things you’ll own this summer. Think about it: they have all the flirty swish of a dress with NONE of the accidental crotch flash danger. Plus, you can sit cross legged in them. Perfect for festivals? Definitely. I’ve paired the Gemini Playsuit with my summer festival staple: the denim shirt. Tie it round your waist in the daytime, and throw it round your shoulders when the night turns cool. Like all good wardrobe investments, the playsuit is versatile as fuck. Heeled boots and a blazer or kimono dress it up, while flats and a bikini underneath will see you straight to the beach. Consider your summer sorted.
BONUS ROUND! It’s white on white, which is the trend du jour this summer.
Bonnie: I love playsuits – they’re the lazy girl’s secret weapon to looking good and getting ready in a rush. One of the biggest things you’ll come to realise is I dress to ‘transition’ – this means wearing an outfit that can carry me from day to night, or from one occasion to another. The Gemini playsuit from Showpo is my ultimate summer staple because it’s one of those pieces I can wear over my bikini to the beach with sandals, and then chuck on this sheer white cover-up after, swap the sandals for heels and I’m good to go for cocktails at The Bucket List or Coogee Pavilion.
