It went by in a heart bit. Beautiful, flirty, casual, too hot, grown up, easy, sophisticated, minimal, and very feminine, with star shiners like jumpsuits, wrap dresses, straw bags, chunky sneakers, bardot necklines, headscarves – the summer of 2018 was probably the best. Holiday inspired outfits and Instagram looks seemed to take over IRL and give the street style of cities and outfits at work a more casual laid back yet very luxe vibe.

More so… summer 2018 had a jumpsuit for any style and occasion, and tbh that’s the main reason why I’m not ready to let go of this summer staple just yet. I feel like it barely scratched the surface of our fashion existence, even though truth be told it ain’t the first time in recent sartorial history that jumpsuits are making a comeback. hello 2015-ish or something.

If 2018 did something it was that it brought together all the jumpsuits in history, mashed them, mixed them, and gave us all the versions in the world with a bit of an upgrade yet never letting go of that casualness that defines this year’s vibe.

The straight leg/palazzo pants jumpsuits.

If wide straight pants aren’t having a star-moment these days I don’t know what is, so naturally… jumpsuits followed. When I say straight leg, i mean straight, wide, palazzo, and even flare. Anything that’s not skinny is IN. Ha! Neve thought I’d get the day to see this coming. The style is very classic, grown-up, polished, yet still airy and casual enough to be worn with any type of shoe in any situation.

The utility jumpsuits.

When fashion knocks on the door who you’re gonna call? Ghost-busters. no joke, but the utility jumpsuit of 2018 is very much ghost busters uniform, very structured, architectural, oversized, tinged at the waist with a belt, awn 80s style homage. The upper part is basically a stiff button down shirt, and the pants are a pyramid style inspired by Seinfeld’s horrendous yet very cool lazy jeans. Worn with confidence, red lips, and a shady cut this little sucker can be a very very very cool fall staple.

The culottes jumpsuits.

If I had a dime for every time I saw one… I’d be right there in Positano rubbing elbows with the rich and famous. The culottes jumpsuit is maybe the best marriage of 2 items there ever was: the culottes and the jumpsuit. It’s fresh, classic, new, it’s very laid back, but can so quickly be dressed up for the nines you don’t what hit you. Think a white simple crispy yet very fluid culottes jumpsuit worn with espadrilles for the day and a pair of white stilettos for the night. I mean…

The paperbag pants inspired jumpsuits.

Another marriage of success if i may say so. This is a more classic and elegante take on the jumpsuit, and while it does look fab with sneakers or flat slides, the moment you put on heels with this little baby… it transforms into even a cocktail or a formal office wear kinds look.

What is so great about jumpsuits?

They have the perks of a dress, so there’s no need to worry about pairing tops to bottoms, but they have the fun of the latter I was telling you about. 2018 has them in so many fabrics, and in so so so many designs, that you can no joke find one for each time of the day. Ruffles, silk, long, short, buttons, bare back, wrap styles, stripes, solid colours, cropped, cut-outs, flirty, casual, elegant… – and on top of all these amazing versions think any shoe style or layering options. (blazer, jacket, coat)

So… you see… I’m really in not rush of getting out of a jumpsuit just yet. I’m sure autumn will be very kind and warm both weather wise as well as sartorially speaking – so we’ll have a bunch of jumpsuits to still pick from and wear come September.

What do you guys think: are jumpsuits your thing?

xoxo
