The Jumpsuit – The One Piece Fashion Staple Every Woman Should Own

Sure a great LBD wins every time you want to get dressed in a pinch but still look effortlessly styled. But for me, nothing hits it out of the park quite like a jumpsuit, a one-piece timeless staple that allows me to pull a chic look together in less than 10 minutes.
The jumpsuit may be on trend now but it has a long history rooted in the rivalry between two top designers from the 30s. It was after all Elsa Schiaparelli who put the jumpsuit on the fashion map.

Jumpsuit – MET display – Designed 1930–35 by Elsa Schiaparelli

She was  Coco Chanel’s rival, and her suit shook up the Paris couture scene with its innovative parachute designs. Schiaparelli even created an easy-on, easy-off air-raid suit, complete with matching gas mask, velvet turban and flask and it eventually became one-piece garment used by parachuters.
Gas masks aside, today jumpsuits are practical and contemporary, as well as wildly chic.
There are several reasons why I have 15 in my closet:
– They’re easy to wear
– They move well from day to night
– They permit easy decision making on the days or nights you don’t want to think about what to wear
– There is one for every body type
– They’re sexy
– And all the accessories you’ll ever need for a high impact look is a pair of sleek heels. Add some great jewellery too.
Thankfully, more and more stores have realized the power of a snazzy jumpsuit (they are now a top seller)  which means there’s something out there to suit pretty much every price point,  size and shape (Hurrah!) Designers are also a great go-to resource for a customised fit. Mine remains Meiling
