What Spring Brings: Stella McCartney's Slouchy Sexy

Stella McCartney's Spring 2009 collection brought out more of my faves: jumpsuits!  The colour palette was spot on - lovely neutrals in nude, beige, peach, cream, gunmetal, silver and a touch of turquoise for pop. Stella embodies what it means to be effortlessly stylish; her muse is no try-hard. You will find no girly bows, ribbons, or animal prints.  The sensuality and femininity is subtle but equally potent.   Plunging V-necklines and high cut jumpers (like a one piece maillot) show plenty of skin, and inventive tailoring keeps the line uniquely modern.  The boyfriend jacket and drapey tops continue to make a strong showing, and they make very wearable pieces.  I also loved the pared down makeup and swept back hair - very fresh for spring.  Accessories were limited to at the most one stand-out item.  This Stella girl is modern, strong and looks equally chic from day to night to weekend.  She's on the go, but makes it look so easy.

My only question is, can one successfully pull off one of these jumpers?  Or is this strictly resort wear?
