Deconstructing the '70s: Jumpsuits

You didn’t need me to write my previous post to know, that the ‘70s are back. Bellbottoms, fringe and suede have all made it back to the runways, and I couldn’t be more excited! We have seen a move towards more natural makeup and effortless hairstyles in the past year, and now it’s time to embrace the laid back and rebellious fashion of this era as well, hopefully not in an overdone, Coachella kind of way. 

As one of the most iconic trends of the the '70s, jumpsuits are reminiscent of disco glamour. For Fall/Winter 2015 designers, such as Balmain, Elie Saab, and Zuhair Murad have turned back to the shiny fabrics, fine pleats, revealing necklines, bold patterns and overarching elegance of this Studio 54 attire, adding their own unique spin to this versatile piece. While the more daywear appropriate, mostly safari inspired denim and cotton versions did not get true representation on these runways, they got plenty of coverage during the Spring/Summer 2015 shows.

If I haven’t said this yet, I think every progressive woman should own at least one jumpsuit. As the cooler, less predictable cousin of the maxi dress, it easily transitions from day to night, as well as from the office to a dinner date, and it exudes a power not many attires are capable of. So add a bit of disco glamour to your eveningwear, or refresh your office wardrobe with a jumpsuit. I promise, you won’t regret it.

Have a fun weekend,



  1. thanks for this, and the jumpsuit trend isn't going anywhere soon I guess!
