A simple staple piece, the jumpsuit; That one-piece that is comfortable and ideal for various occasions.
This 2017 carryover will hang around in 2018 on a more utilitarian feel, and I’m here for it.
Jumpsuits are without a doubt a statement style. The ‘head-to-toe, all-in-one’ garment always creates a striking look moves beyond a simple dress or pants & top combo to something more fashionable and striking. Like every other piece of clothing, they’re both loved (this is the category I fall in) and hated, because finding the perfect one isn’t always easy. Finding a jumpsuit that fits like a glove and looks flattering may become a daunting task and you’re most likely going to suffer through a few not so flattering options before you find the one but once you find it, you’ll understand why the style just keeps coming back and is constantly updated.
For the past few years we’ve been seeing very sexy, chic jumpsuits from designers and retailers. This year – we’re going a little slouchy with our jumpsuits or separates that look like one. The one-and-done staple is coming back in full force with a utilitarian twist, the new silhouette draws inspiration from the classic flight suit and comes in boxy and boyish styles that have the perfect slouchy quality. The jumpsuit will come in forms of flight suits, denim (yay) and boyish styles in military colours like navy, olive, white and black – I am personally excited for the direction that we’re heading towards because I enjoy a good jumpsuit; it is easy wear and I manage to feel both retro and modern at the same time.
Here’s a round up of some of my lazygirl-approved utility jumpsuits:
