Janitor-Chic? Yes, Onsies (aka Jumpsuits) Are In!

September 19, 2007 by Bryn

Most women are going to roll their eyes at the exclamation that "jumpsuits are back!" — I certainly did. And it may be warranted. After all, jumpsuits date back to the designer Paco Rabanne in the 60’s and 70’s, reaching their popularity peak in the 80's, the decade of such fashion jewels as scrunchies, leg warmers, side ponytails and spandex — lots and lots of spandex.

The jumpsuits of today, however, are "not demonstrably tied to any active impulse," but rather "primarily visible on lanky fashion types," says Meredith Bryan in the New York Observer. Does that mean you should swap out that black mini trapeze dress for a jumpsuit? In a word: no. According to uber-chic designer Mara Hoffman, “If it’s done right, it’s flattering. It’s hard on a really long torso, since it emphasizes the length instead of breaking it up like separates would do.” Translation: this is a good choice if you have a perfect body. If, indeed, you're height to weight ratio resembles that of say, Keira Knightley, then go for it (and congratulations, by the way). Otherwise, I say avoid any outfit that could leave you looking like a long-torsoed janitor with a camel toe. And just for curiosity's sake, check out these trendy renditions.
