Trend Alert: Evening Jumpsuit

Just hearing the word 'jumpsuit' is enough for most people to run for cover and denounce fashion for a lifetime. Knowing this it's not easy to break the trend news to you about the evening jumpsuit, however, it has already made at least three appearances on the red carpet! Last night Fearne Cotton wore a gorgeous black silk jumpsuit for androgynous chic at the Cosmopolitan Women of the Year Awards. Earlier this week Stella McCartney also sported the style wearing a piece from her Spring '09 line. Gossip Girl star Blake Lively has also backed the surprisingly flattering garment wearing a green silk Miss Sixty version.

Although the idea of an evening jumpsuit seems daunting it can be surprisingly flattering. Avoid the boiler-suit style or you might end up looking like a mechanic. Instead opt for a luxe fabric jumpsuit, for example silk, and keep all accessories very simple. If you're worried about it looking too masculine then team with heels, wear your hair down (like Fearne and Blake) and accessories with minimal jewellery.

It's really nice to see people wearing trousers on the red carpet, but I don't think jumpsuits ever looked good on anyone.

I'm not sold on the jumpsuit yet but designers are definitely loving the look.
