If you’re looking to buy a new fashion garment for your wardrobe, or if you need an excuse to yet again lavish yourself in trendy clothes, every closet should be home to at least one jumpsuit!
A jumpsuit is a one-piece garment that generally consists of a combined top and pants (where the pants go down to the feet/ankles). Somewhat similar to coveralls or overalls, jumpsuits can be loose or tight fitting and can be found in a number of style preferences.
Jumpsuits are a staple of popular clothing in women’s fashion!
Starting in the 1960s, the jumpsuit has made occasional appearances in both common and high fashion. The jumpsuit was at the height of its popularity in the 1980s, and the stylish one-piece garment has been used as stage costumes in theater productions and by various singers and bands. Think Britney Spears, Pink, the Spice Girls and Suzi Quatro, who have all performed on stage in one-piece signature jumpsuits. And let’s not forget male performers such as Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry and Freddie Mercury, who have all stood on stage and entertained audiences dressed in flamboyant one-piece jumpsuits. Ah yes, they have entertained me!
Bring out your fashion flair in a jet-set one-piece jumpsuit!
Jumpsuit Fashion Tip: Make sure that whatever shoes you decide to wear with your jumpsuit match and compliment the style. Shoes can make or break an outfit!
Jumpsuit Fun Fact: One-piece jumpsuits have a tendency to make the wearer look longer and leaner. Since the garment has an unbroken line running from the neck to the feet, this tends to flatter body shapes, providing an elongated appearance.
Jumpsuits tend to make their mark in high fashion as the one-piece wonder is often attractive to fashion designers. Whatever your fashion sense, jumpsuits run the realm of casual to club chic, and the enticing garment can be dressed up or down depending on your choice of shoes and accessories.
I love black clothes, and I find black jumpsuits to be both modern and elegant, being worn as standard day or office clothing, or fancy evening wear.
Slinky and sassy, black jumpsuits always look classy!
Jumpsuit Fun Fact: Jumpsuits can also be referred to as rompers or onesies. Rompers appeared in the United States in the early 1900s and are particularly popular because they are generally ideal for movement and not as restrictive as separate shirts and shorts or pants. In France, for many years, rompers were only worn by boys.
Since 2006, rompers have enjoyed a comeback as a fashionable garment for women. In the Spring 2009 fashion collections, Marc Jacobs, Max Azria and Mara Hoffman were among name designers who showcased various versions of the romper.

From one-piece rompers to one-piece jumpsuits, this one-piece wonder will jump-start any wardrobe.

“I adore your smashing shirt and pants.”
“Yes, you’ve made quite a fashion splash.”
“But my outfit isn’t separate. The pants and shirt are one.”
“Is it hard to move in? To frolic, walk or run?”
“No, it’s easy to maneuver into and easy on the eyes.”
“I want to rush out and buy one. I hope they’ll have my size.”
“Are there any drawbacks to wearing a one-piece suit?”
“Trying to get out of it quickly can be a real hoot.”
