Fashion Trend: why we love the jumpsuit for summer 2016

by Paige Exell -

Onesies, jumpers, playsuits, coveralls – the 2016 jumpsuit has managed to come delivered under many different names. And though the style has been known to be appropriate only in casual settings, times have changed. Now, the look has been spotted on red carpets and major runways, as celebrities and style influencers are opting for jumpsuits as seriously impressive night-out attire. You can certainly forego conventionally pretty dresses in favour of wide-legged all-in-ones to weddings or date-nights with the latest, more revealing trends within the world of jumpsuits.

Sure, dresses and pants are fun, but nothing beats wearing a one-piece that instantly places you into the fashion forward category, and not to mention, is super easy to put on when you're in a hurry! From work-appropriate jumpsuits to beach-ready culotte onesies, here are three different styles of jumpsuits to try this summer, inspired by your favourite celebs!



The latest in jumpsuit innovations? Front-tie's expose a peek of skin, leaving you with a cool cut-out, and giving the classic jumpsuit a fresh and sophisticated update. It reveals just a tad of skin and feels casual, but it also makes it seem like you've put together an entire look with ease. For a more everyday, work-appropriate approach to the look, look to style influencers like Olivia Palermo and Blake Lively , who opted for jumpsuits with a front-tie that cinched the waist for a more put-together appeal.

If you'd like to turn the summer wardrobe staple into a sultry statement look, opt for a onesie that comes adorned with side cut-outs like Selena Gomez's, or a revealing cut-out at the bust, like Irina Shayk's 2016 CFDA Awards look.


Not into the whole feminine cut-outs and bow-tie jumpsuit style? L'Oreal muse Doutzen Kroes made a case for the athleisure onesie at the 2016 CFDA Awards, proving that style and comfort can go hand-in-hand this summer. The blonde bombshell opted for a black, long-sleeved jumpsuit with a cool collar and zipper that ran down the front of her jumpsuit. For a more sultry look, she pulled the zipper down to her bust, giving this sporty look a night-out-appropriate twist. It's the best of both worlds!


While denim jumpsuits, or in other words – overalls, are nothing new, supermodel Kendall Jenner showed us how to put a casual, yet cool twist on the look for summer 2016. The brunette stepped out earlier this month wearing a white, sleeveless denim jumpsuit that featured a collared neck, breast pockets, and buttons down the middle for the ultimate cool-girl appeal. She paired the look with heeled leather boots and John Lennon-inspired sunglasses that offered a chic take on her casual look.

If that isn't enough inspiration to get you to jump on the jumpsuit bandwagon this summer, we don't know what is!
