SS07 Trend: Jumpsuits / Playsuits

First off, I don't know the exact name of the garment I'm talking about. Some sites call them jumpsuits (which just reminds me of those orange, jumpsuits from prison,) and other sites call them playsuits (such as Top Shop.) Doesn't matter, I'll just call them jumpsuits here. Actually, they remind me of shirt-dresses, which I just blogged about on Thursday, except jumpsuits' bottoms are shorts instead of skirts. Oops ok I'm rambling...
So the point of this post is me saying eww to jumpsuits. Jumpsuits is a thing that I relate to the 80's, and 80's to me is a decade of somewhat vulgar fashion, (although this really is more of an impression rather than me actually knowing 80's fashion well.) Plus this season's 80's revival of bright colours doesn't help.
I have to admit Nicole Richie makes the jumpsuit look mega-glamorous. (And no, this does not mean I think of her as my role model of any sorts.) I like the black and gold combo.
But I don't know, something about jumpsuits just make me dislike them. For example here, even though I think red silk looks nice on Michelle Trachtenberg, the red jumpsuit makes her look like she's in a flashy exercise video or some disco.
Lindsay looks relaxed and casual here. Maybe the jumpsuits look less tacky during daytime?
Can you blame me for not liking jumpsuits? Check these out. I especially hate jumpsuits that are sporty-looking, like the ones made of terry cloth or the green one in the left picture. Are you going to wear this look this summer?

Oh my gosh! Nicole Richie looks amazing there...that is seriously one of the best outfits I've seen her in. I love it! Do you have any idea where that "jumpsuit" is from?
Thank You! :)

I think Nicole and Lindsay pull it off because their playsuits are kind of tailored and sort of look like shirt dresses, whereas the last two examples look weird because the first looks like a glorified boobtube and the second a baggy jumpsuit...

aww i love these jumpsuits i think they're adorable and so easy to throw on just like a casual dress (but more practical for day to day living)

i don't call them playsuits or jumpsuits... i call them rompers, but no difference-

I think the look can work, it just depends (on the fit, pattern, material, etc) I think the one on Michelle looks horrifying, Lindsay's looks better, Nicole definitely takes the cake. I'll give them a try this summer if I find the perfect ones.

jamie spears wore an orange one similar to michelle trachtenberg but accesorized it much better and looked pretty decent. check people.com or some picture website!

the only celebrity on your post who rocks it is nicole.

lindsay's look is very cute, but this has got to be the most inconvenient garment ever invented; if you've ever worn one you know what i mean

uh no. just no. they remind me of children's onesies.

(although i think nicole does look super cute)

i've thought about buying one. last year i remember H&M having terrycloth ones, which i think would be nice for going to the beach xD but i don't think i'll actually be wearing this(would not be so fun going to the bathroom), i'll stick with regular shorts + top.

Blogger Kaye said...

I'm a skeptic, but admit it looks a LOT better on nicole than the others. And hence, I feel that this look CAN be rocked so long you are pin thin and petite.

Would like it on the right girl, but in the end- not for me!

Haven't rompers been around longer than the eighties? I remember seeing photos of Yoko Ono walking about with military style rompers-olive green, tailored shirt, long sleeves, and she paired it with black boots-and I thought it looked really fantastic. I think if you contrast one part to be long with a short section, you can pull off rompers/jumpsuits.

These are not "Jumpsuits", they are/or were called Playsuits and/or Rompers back in the "Stoneage"

I haven't worn it yet but I bought a "playsuit" in March from the Topshop website. Mine had thin, adjustable straps.

I don't like jumpsuits because I have a weird phobia of wearing the same color/pattern/fabric from top to bottom, unless it's a dress. I don't like matching suits for the same reason - I think most people look like a walking fabric swatch when their top and bottom pieces match

Nicole's playsuit looks marvelous! I could see myself in something like that. Actually, I read this blog yesterday and checked asos.com, and they have some very cute ones I might purchase and wear this season.

Nicole really does look amazing. I must admit, I wasn't really into this trend at all, but she makes me sit up and consider it all over again!

Heavens no. Not unless I want to play dress up as the "cute car mechanic" for Halloween. Jumpsuits begone! I will admit that Nicole looks cute and I believe that is due to the belt. It makes it the outfit look like two pieces and instead of one terrible...romper.

Playsuits are GREAT!!! I recently bought one from shopgoldyn.com and want to wear it everyday! I feel really summery in mine and the colour and pattern is really cute.

I hate playsuits they are so weird and they seem very hard to pull off, plus some of them look like pyjamas.
