You may have seen my recent post featuring this playsuit in green – here. Of course when Zara brought out the exact same playsuit in blue, naturally I had to get it. Blue is more my colour although I do like the shade of the green one. Blue is a better match for my skin tone and goes really well with the other colour combinations I tend to stick to i.e. grey. It also goes well with red and I can imagine accessorising with a bold red lip or a red bag for a pop of colour and to liven it up a bit more.
The ruffles are so chic and give style and flare to a one piece outfit. They flow perfectly and flatter in all the right places. There is one other notable difference between the green and blue aside from the colour and that is the inner lining which is missing from the blue. I wore the green playsuit to celebrate my friend’s 30th birthday recently. It was a hot night in Glasgow and the volume of lining inside made the outfit, although made of linen and completely breathable, unbearably hot. Of course such occasions are rare in Glasgow and if wearing again tomorrow, the experience would probably be totally different and I’d be glad of the extra warmth. I wasn’t sure when the blue arrived if there had been a production error or if the lining was deliberately removed. I contacted Zara and they confirmed they had made without the heavy inner lining. I was concerned it would be see-through without it but in actual fact it’s fine and still has good shape.
The blue colour is titled as Sea Blue in the product description and I love that it’s not a royal or pastel blue, it’s definitely in between and different from anything else I’ve seen in stores recently.
Both the green and blue playsuits will be perfect for holidays as they are so easy to throw on in the evening when you don’t want to make much effort yet still want to look good. The material is ideal for travelling although it will probably need an iron when it comes out the case upon arrival as it does crease very easily.
