Top Trend: Jumpsuits

Sonia Zmihi,

This season, you’ll need this one piece —Literally! It’s a dream come true outfit, especially for the laziest of us. Imagine only having to pick out one item in your closet and in the blink of an eye you look instantly stylish and  feel totally comfortable. Does it get any better than that? Luckily designers are creating more jumpsuits than ever before. Better yet, they span the spectrum of occasions. From casual to glamourous, it’s now actually possible to wear jumpsuits 24/7 if that how you want to roll with your wardrobe. 

The fashion institutions, Hermès and Saint Laurent kept their jumpsuit classic, giving two different interpretations of the outfit: day and night. The former presented a structured powder pink jumpsuit, with big silver zipper for accentuated lines. While the later, created by Anthony Vaccarello in his debut show for the house, was cut into a super chic silhouette featuring structured shoulders and a plunging neckline.

After numerous collaboration with German sportswear giant Adidas it’s no surprise that Stella McCartney found her jumpsuit inspiration in streetwear, which translated into a super casual oversized camel colored look. A proposition that is quite a contrast with Barbara Bui’s beige one-shouldered jumpsuit, which fully embodies the rock and roll spirit of the French designer.

 Most designers took their inspiration from more classical utilitarian jumpsuits and worked their magic on them to create modern and elegant reinterpretations. Isabel Marant gave a feminine twist to the traditional flight suit with a defined waistline to enhance the curves of her model’s body, the creative duo Sebastian Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant at the helm of Courrèges revisited the diving wetsuit giving it a futuristic dimension. Last but not least, Burberry tackled one of the hardiest onesies in history: the workwear overall. The British house kept the roomy comfort level high on this design. But added some fine embroideries to the outfit that it instantly elevated its cool quotient.

Once the tried and true go to garment for people who worked manual jobs, jumpsuits have crossed the sartorial tracks to become a fashionable alternative for the jet set and are becoming a seasonless staple for all women. 

Ladies, you should jump on this trend asap. We promise once you slide a oneies on you will never look at the rest of the clothes in your closet the same way again.
