#WeekendWardrobe: Pop on a Playsuit like Dorcas Fapson, Boity Thulo & Naomie Harris

Travelling is all about taking a break from working hard and heading to a new location to play hard, right? So, why not play even better, in one of the season’s most popular pieces: the playsuit?

Yep, as we’ve travel and holidays on the brain, the leg-baring one-piece springs to mind, since it’s great for whatever adventure you’ll be embarking on this weekend, with a range of styles to suit all your requirements.

And some of our favourite celebrities have been working playsuits on their ventures around the globe too, proving we can always take a few pointers from them, below;


Actress and TV personality, Boity Thulo attended the launch party of SA Fashion Week in Johannesburg in a playsuit that had heads turning left, right and centre. The South African beauty sported a short lime green playsuit by Topshop that flaunted her curvy shape, complimented with a bold blue clutch, a chunky necklace, black courts and a red lip. We at SPICE just adore her use of colour!

Over in London, British actress Naomie Harris looked stunning in a Gucci Spring’14 printed playsuit, which she wore to the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. The spaghetti-strapped playsuit featured a plunging neckline, an attached black mesh bra and culotte-style shorts, which sat so well on Miss Harris’ slim and trim figure. The star completed her look with Gucci strapped heels, silver earrings and a black Edie Parker clutch, resulting in a sexy yet sophisticated appearance.

Lastly, another actress to sport the playsuit trend is MTV Shuga superstar, Dorcas Fapson aka Sophie, who arrived at the Loud’n’Proud 2nd anniversary show in Lagos in a ready-to-party number. The beautiful 23 year old was pictured in a black and grey playsuit with embellishments, showing off her long chocolate legs and bright smile. We just love how Ms Fapson looked in her jumpsuit!
