Eye on the Trends: The Jumpsuit

Vanessa Hudgens Rebecca Taylor Jumpsuit.jpgWhen we were in our teens, the jumpsuit was all the rage. And now that we’re a little older (and unfortunately can’t fit into the stuff from our closets of yore), they’re making a huge comeback. Jumpsuits were seen all over the runways for Spring 2009, from Topshop Unique and Richard Nicoll to Derercuny and Eley Kishimoto. Even celebs like Vanessa Hudgens have gotten in on the act with this little floral number — the Spring Blossom Playsuit by Rebecca Taylor — which she wore recently at the premiere of Watchmen. (You can get your own for $345 at net-a-porter.com.)

Now, you may be worrying that the jumpsuit isn’t the most flattering item you could pick off the rack. But no matter what your figure, there’s one to suit you. And the best news? There’s one for every budget! Check out our faves.
