If it’s a one piece with some kind of leg accommodation, I’ll wear it. Romper, jumpsuit, playsuit, unitard, catsuit, onesie – gimme.
I know that people say jumpsuits made the proverbial leap from utility into high fashion somewhere around the 60s – 70s, but I don’t know about that. I think the real trendsetter (or at the very least, my personal jumpsuit fashion icon) may have emerged earlier in the 50s. Those bell-bottom flares? That edgy mustard lip color? Matching your outfit to your skin tone?! Gumby knew what was up.
Uh, anyway…I guess this is now a post about an outfit inspired by Gumby. I’m not entirely sure how this happened, but here we are.
