In the same way that the maxi dress was rescued from it’s Laura Ashley style 70s obscurity, and is now a definite wardrobe staple, the jumpsuit now seems here to stay. I can still remember the 1980s versions, boiler suits, parachute suits that seemed to be more suited to a flying lesson or working in a factory than actually being a fashion item. Early 1980s Scottish Songstress Kelly Marie seemed to have one perfectly glued to her body, and that was more than enough reason not to be wearing them. But how times change.
The jumpsuit is now a super practical and much loved part of the wardrobe, and is a definite red carpet staple. Only this week, Rose Byrne was pictured wearing a silver lame version that took the disco look into the 21st century with amazing style. Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Kate Beckinsale and Elizabeth Banks are amongst the vast number of stars who can sometimes swap an evening dress for a sassy jumpsuit.
