S/S08 Trend: Jumpsuits Continued

Last June, I blogged about how I didn't particularly like jumpsuits. And after looking through the S/S08 collections on style.com, I thought jumpsuits have become a thing of 2007. But it seems like my brain was so desperate for this trend to be over that it just missed the jumpsuits in the S/S collections. Vogue.co.uk identifies them:

Stella McCartney designed a few printed, light-weight, long-sleeved jumpsuits. They look like they're for people who are bumming around the countryside, and the one in the middle looks like PJs.
Bottega Veneta and Moschino both had tailored, summery-looking jumpsuits.

Many highstreet retailers have jumped on board and are now selling them:
Urban Outfitters (US) has a few styles. These are very casual and relaxed looking. These are way too casual and PJ-looking for me, but believe me, the models in these jumpsuits look very cool in UO's Spring catalogue images!
Even Lacoste (left) came out with a preppy version of jumpsuit. And the blue jumpsuit on the left (from UO) looks very LA-style.
Jumpsuits like this red, camisole version by Top Shop is one big reason why I don't like this trend. Seriously, does anyone actually just wear this and walk around the streets? Talk about cheap-looking and skimpy!
Although to be fair, Top Shop is also selling these two cute versions. (To my horror,) I actually really like the flower-printed jumpsuit on the left. It probably wouldn't suit me and I certainly won't dish out 45 pounds for something I won't wear often, but I can image it would look cool on certain people (like the people in Nylon magazine and Top Shop ads.)

2 months back, Vogue UK had a page or two featuring around 4 people photographed in different style of jumpsuits. They all looked fantastic of course and there were quotes from them proclaiming their love for jumpsuits. In the following few weeks, a couple of UK newspapers' websites also sang their praises for jumpsuits. But at the end of day, I just don't 'get' jumpsuits. I really don't think jumpsuits are versatile at all. I mean, wouldn't having the pants/shorts and tees/tops seperate be much more versatile to mix-and-match? Oh well, I suspect I'm just very biased towards disliking the fashion from the time period when jumpsuits were popular (-the 80's right?) Let's hope we'll stop seeing jumpsuits around next S/S!

I like the one in the first pic on the right. Looks cute.

And I saw someone on the best dance crew in America (a show on mtv) and one of the girls was wearing a bright pink metallic one (summer cut). It looked really cute on her...

I'm not really sure if I'll cash in on the trend either because separtes are so much better like you said, but I don't mind it at all. I think if you find the right one (preferably metallic in my case or the white cottony one in the pic) and put it with some banging necklaces and bangles and heels it would look so hot.

I hate the long pant jumpsuits, but the shorts and short sleeves ones, called rompers, can be kind of cute. I think only tailored ones should be worn out. I don't think I would though. I'm considering buying a cheap cotton one to wear around my apartment as pajamas for fun, heh.

I also sort of like that flowery jumpsuit from Topshop...that's so wrong...

The concept of this trend is cool--sort of a throwback to the 30s--but I don't think it will go far.

By the way, does anyone else think it's really dumb that UO is purposefully making the pictures of their clothes look unprofessional? Go back to the white background so that we can actually SEE the clothes. Sheesh.

I do love the short tailored jumpsuits the best! The Stella McCartney ones look too 90s.

Although I cannot stand the patterned jumpsuits, (looks waaay too busy to me), I did see Meredith Tresi at the Ivy in B.H. wearing a white jumpsuit, VERY similar to Stella McCartney's. I wonder if it was the same suit? She does have those connections, and boy, did she look hot! Love the white jumpsuit.

Jumpsuits make me cringe, but I pretty don't like them because I can't pull them off.

Well, I live in NY and have seen some women sporting Jumpers & also when visiting LA & Miami I've seen a few as well. And I think that as long as you are tall and slender you can wear a jumpsuit and wear it well. Also, like I said before, if it has too many patterns on it then it is just too "busy" even for someone who is tall. And GOD FORBID if it was orange or denim and on the baggy side because then you'd just look like a prisoner or a mechanic!
But I still love the white Stella Jumper and I think they are easy to remove while visiting the ladies room bc it just slips off of your shoulders and voila! Easier than jeans!

I love the Urban Outfitters jumpsuits! Even if they look like pj, they appear very comfy to me and easy to wear.

How about actually paying for an advertisement premiumpearl.com?!

Who would trust a pearl company whose marketing plan is spam? Comment spam - that is what they do. Do a search for their name on Google. You see it over and over again.

PremiumPearl.com Sucks! PremiumPearl.com, a company that spams will usually scam.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه

The jumpsuit is such a silly trend. It reminds me of things babies wear, not adults. Oh well, I'll stick to dresses this season.
