Mention the word 'jumpsuit' and people tend to have a strong reaction, a bit like Marmite. Those who love them see their quirky side. They conjure up images of Roisin Murphy, Bianca Jagger in her heyday or Lily Allen in her white satin version for the Not Fair video.

Those who loathe the onesie think of it as a shapeless boiler suit that should be limited to the world of workmen, or alternatively pop it into the trying-too-hard category.

It's safe to say that it's a brave choice of garment that needs to be worn with lashings of attitude.

You're not going to get away with just throwing this little number on. You'll need killer heels, gorgeous grooming and above all, your waist needs to be cinched.
