Hallelujah for inclusive fashion!

Fashion retailer ASOS have proven how sound they are by designing a new piece of clothing, suitable for people with a disability.

The rainproof jumpsuit is modelled by Great Britain paralympic Chloe Ball-Hopkin.

Speaking to Newsbeat, Chloe explained that she wants to ''make fashion that is accessible to everybody."

The athlete and BBC Bristol sports reporter was contacted by ASOS, who wanted to see if she would be interested in a collaboration. 

The idea for the jumpsuit came to Chloe after she got drenched while at a festival with her boyfriend.

"You get the same version whether it's you or I buying it – that's the point. It is exactly the same for me as it is for you,'' the 21-year-old said. 

The support she has been getting has reached a global level. 

Social media have shared their delight, with one Twitter user saying, ''this jumpsuit is cute, and better yet, inclusive of people who use wheelchairs. Excited to see more inclusive clothing coming out!''

Another commented, ''just ordered from ASOS for the first time! Love that they’re collaborating for accessible fashion!''

Disability blogger Shona Louise has written a moving piece championing the brand for catering for differently-abled bodies. 

She wrote, ''for so long accessible clothing has been ugly, ridiculously expensive and generally unappealing. Actually designing something with disabled people in mind is a whole other amazing and important step. It's not the extra step either, it's the equal step.''

This is not the first time ASOS has included a model who has a disability in a campaign.

Model, blogger and leg amputee Mama Cax was featured by the brand in one of their activewear campaigns back in in January. 

So what other brand will be next to follow in their footsteps? 



Mark our words, 2017 will forever been know as the year when fashion just lost its way a little bit – and this latest offering from ASOS is here to prove it.

The online retailer has been getting a bit of a slagging over its latest WTF fashion item, and to be honest, it's not hard to see why.

Introducing the 'Full-body Trousers' – or the 'Minimal Jumpsuit' as ASOS like to call it.

Now, we're all about taking risks when it comes to style, but in this case we can't help but think the design would have been better off left on the drawing board.

The bizarre garment was first brought to our attention when Holby City actress Niamh Walsh tweeted a picture saying: “I see you ASOS this is just big trousers.”

We couldn't agree more.

Needless to say, the 'minimal jumpsuit' has sparked quite the conversation online with many Twitter users suggesting their own theories on the inspiration behind the piece

While products are often released with the claim that ‘one size fits all’, it remains almost impossible to find a piece of clothing which both fits and suits all women.

But with social and marketing movements becoming increasingly focused on the issue of body diversity, it was only a matter of time until someone tried to design an outfit which any woman could wear.

As part of a joint initiative between online retailer JustFab and televised design competition Project Runway, the popular reality show’s contestants were tasked with creating an everyday outfit for women of all shapes, sizes and ages.

The winner of the challenge was 41-year-old Laurence Basse, who designed a cotton khaki-coloured boyish jumpsuit.

Speaking of the piece, the French native told InStyle: “I personally love a jumpsuit, and it's hard to find a good, fitted, sexy jumpsuit.”

“If you have boobs, or if you have a little booty, this jumpsuit makes it easy to hide areas you want hidden – it's versatile and flattering…I came up with something that any woman would feel sexy and confident in without being over the top.”

While Laurence’s design is pretty cool, we’re not sure the utilitarian nature of the jumpsuit is something everyone would be into.

We’ve all seen the pictures of perfectly tanned bikini-clad girls riding jet skis around crystal clear water, but have you ever seen a global superstar do it in a designer jumpsuit and bright red helmet?  We think not!

Amazingly that trend could soon become the norm as Beyoncé has been pictured driving a black and white jet ski along the Italian coast while wearing a fitted life-jacket over a silver embellished jumpsuit.

And while the combination is beyond random, it would take Queen B to work it like a total BOSS.

According to PEOPLE, Bey is currently taking a little jet ski centred vaycay around the Mediterranean as she takes a break from her Formation world tour.

Already this summer the Lemonade creator has been snapped twinning with Blue Ivy in Paris, looking smitten with Jay Z in Hawaii and getting stuck into a pint of Guinness in our very own Dublin.

Seriously, is there anything this woman can’t do?

Selena Gomez is a major talking point right now after she apparently hooked up with Orlando Bloom over the weekend.

But as well as her hot love life, the woman also has hot style, and she proves it by wearing a jumpsuit that you can pick up right on the high street.

While on her Revival World Tour, Selena took time to meet some fans backstage, and while she was at it, she wore this American Apparel outfit.

For only €42, it's certainly a style steal since most artists wear clothes worth a lot of $$$ while on tour.

You can pick up the jumpsuit here, and why not rock it with Doc Martins like Sel did. Hot hot hot. 



While they might not have nabbed a seat at Sunday's Oscars, the Irish contingent have been out in force in LA this week for some seriously glam pre-parties.

One of the most hotly anticipated events on the pre-Oscars calendar is the Oscar Wilde party, hosted for the fifth year in a row by JJ Abrams at his Bad Robot studios in Santa Monica.

Among the invited guests this year were Sarah Greene, James Corden, Snow Patrol, Lenny Abrahamson and the ever-stylish Amy Huberman, who wowed in a sleek white jumpsuit.

Looking at the snaps of Amy in her plunge-necked, wide leg ensemble, you'd be forgiven for thinking she had dropped thousands on her outfit, but it is in fact from a VERY budget-friendly Irish retailer.

Yup, the jumpsuit is an SS16 offering from Lennon Courtney, stocked exclusively at Dunnes Stores.

Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon's label has made quite a name for itself with sleek, colour-blocked pieces that offer a different silhouette from what Dunnes shoppers may be used to.

"Hey @lennoncourtney your jumpsuit has been tried and tested and it totally works, thank you!" Amy wrote on Instagram, also tagging her footwear collection, Bourbon.

The actress wasn't the only attendee who was repping Irish designers.

Singer Roisin O looked stunning in a silver suit from Roz Purcell's Scribe By Roz collection from House of Fraser:

And Xposé's Glenda Gilson nabbed this sheer dress straight off Paul Costelloe's London Fashion Week AW16 catwalk:

We love seeing Irish designers getting some international coverage – keep it up, ladies.



New York Fashion Week has officially started, and Kylie Jenner is already KILLING it.

The reality star touched down in the Big Apple last night and sported a very sheer navy, lace jumpsuit.

She was attending the VFILES fashion show, where her boyfriend, Tyga made a surprise performance.

The rapper took to the stage following the catwalk show to sing to the crowd, along with a bunch of back-up musicians.

Some might think Kylie's jumpsuit is a bit OTT, but we think she is slaaaaying. 



Nothing screams summer like a cute floral dress. If you’re a fan of flowers and patterns, you will be in love with the gorgeous offering from this year’s Oasis summer/spring collection.

Just because there’s no sun that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy these amazing designs!


SS14 is the season of the skirt. From pencil to mini, you name it, it’s in trend! Show off those pins with these daring prints – it takes a real woman to pull these off.


If flaunting your legs isn’t your thing, don’t feel excluded. Embrace the season with a thin pencil skirt or a printed jumpsuit like the above from the Oasis summer collection.
