Though this trend tends to skew a bit younger, there are plenty of options for a variety of personality types and social situations. These cool utilitarian one-pieces have been produced by everyone from Givenchy to J.Crew, Stella McCartney to Cynthia Rowley.
To wit, for the weekend or a daytime outing, try a silky black number with a tie waist and ruffle detail a la Richard Chai Love (far right). There are office appropriate jumpers too, courtesy of designers like Rachel Roy (center), who created a suit-like version. For evening, trade in your L.B.D. for a L.B.J. with a devastatingly chic tuxedo-inspired one-piece, Lanvin's Alber Elbaz created the perfect prototype.
Tall women will have no problem making these garments look good. If you border on the petite side, don't fret. Just make sure that you've found a jumpsuit that will show some skin so as not to overwhelm the body in fabric. Make like Michelle Obama and show off your arms, cuff the pants (or opt for a cropped pair), and throw on a pair of heels to add some height.
Depending on how formal or casual you are intending to be, think high heels for dressier scenarios, wedges for more casual environments, and flats when it's too hot to deal with anything else. Jewelry options are endless, but we like the idea of harkening back to the jumpsuits heyday a la Halston and piling on the chain necklaces or a sturdy stack of cuffs.
