A few months ago, I wrote a post on the Canvas by Land’s End line which was relaunched as a more upscale collection. One of the items that caught my eye was a very stylish jumpsuit that comes in black, white and peach. I read the reviews and they were, on the whole positive, but I was not brave enough to take the plunge withouth trying it on, especially because jumpsuits tend to be a bit drapey and quite full in the leg so they fit better on taller people.

Fast forward, and recently I saw a woman wearing the jumpsuit at a cocktail party. She looked fabulous and told me that she was very happy with her purchase. Lucky for me, Land’s End opened a pop-up store this summer in Southampton, so off I went. I was actually quite suprised that it fit so nicely and that there was no extra fabric floating around in the wrong places. And I don’t have to rush to the tailor to hem it!
I can see also owning this jumpsuit in black as it would be perfect for the city, day or night. But for now, I am happy to own it in white, for cocktails or dinner at the beach.
By the way, I also love that it’s a great canvas (pun intended) to show off accessories.
