Jumpsuits have always scared me. My slight fear seems to be intrinsically linked to a serious fashion faux pas as a child. Remember catsuits of the 90s/early 00s? The ugly older aunt of todays glamorous jumpsuits and flirty playsuits? 

There was a school disco. I was about 9 or 10. There was a catsuit. It was high necked at the top, bootcut at the bottom, and deep, dark purple velvet. 

Oh, and did I mention I was fat back then? 

Yes. I was one of the fat kids in primary school. And I learnt the hard way that skintight, bootcut, high necked, purple velvet certainly is not flattering, pretty nor cute on a fat kid. I looked like a cheap round fuzzy Christmas bauble. And it has caused an aversion to all things all-in-one like.

…Until this beauty. When I tweeted about it my friend Joe came back at me saying it looked like a ninja suit. And when I first put it on, it actually did. And it still does, even with the accessories.

But that’s okay, because now I have a brilliantly chic outfit for the next fancy dress event I attend.

The silhouette of this jumpsuit drapes and skims over the body in 100% silk. With jewels and a beaded clutch, kitten-heel courts and S-wave curls, it can easily take a 40s siren turn.

At £90 from Topshop, it is a little bit pricey, but I haven’t worn it out and yet and not had at least one person come up and give me a compliment and ask where it is from (four times in 10 days… probably needs a wash now).

So if you want to feel like a silky sophisticated stylish ninja siren, invest.

I am no longer a cheap round fuzzy velvet bauble. I am a silk ninja.
