Cute outfit, right? What if I was tell to you this is actually a jumpsuit – a onesie if you will? Bet you’re as impressed as we are.
It takes a clever cookie (note: a mother) to come up with such a unique and practical concept. Kerry Newman, the creator of these incredible jumpsuits, is actually a mother of three and a paediatrician. Sick of watching others (and herself) struggle with clasps, snaps and ties on children’s clothing, she founded Zopheez.
Zopheez are jumpsuits for babies and toddlers – but they look like an entire outfit. They have one zip down the centre, and another at the crotch for easy nappy changes. No need to worry about keeping shirts tucked in and skirts pulled up. The pick of the boys’ outfits has to be the Jesse. Cowboy inspired and cute-to-the-core, it has a cotton rib top and corduroy bottom, with fringe and “buckle”. Finishing off this western wonder is a vintage-style bandanna at the neck.
The girls’ options are bright and fun, with either skirts or pants. The Paisley has a certain carnival feel – with ruffles and yellow and green print. Zopheez jumpsuits start at US$64, and sizes range from three to six months, up to eighteen to twenty-four months. Shipping to Australia is available.
