Jumpsuits, flight suits, all-in-ones – whatever name you want to give them, I love them. I almost always feel the need to shoot the photo of any girl I see wearing one. They’ve been making a comeback for a few seasons now thanks to labels like Topshop Unique, PPQ, and Miss Sixty among others. I even saw two full rails of amazing vintage ones recently at Episode – one of the best vintage shops in Amsterdam. There’s something about them that’s uniquely urbane – they seem to practically scream “city chic fashion editor”. They are simple and no-fuss (unless you need to go to the bathroom), yet are often snug and sexy and reveal flattering curves. This combination of no-nonsense cool meeting urbane sexiness is the key to their recent resurgence. Sexiness and practicality are usually sworn enemies! Amazing looking 70’s disco versions aside, I think they look best in a basic military-inspired cut. Cropped legs, killer chunky heels, an oversized bag, and cute jewelry complete the look. As the suit itself can look a bit androgynous, the cropped legs, statement heels, and other accessories are necessities. Here are a couple of cuties I spotted in Williamsburg the other day rocking this look. xx eddie
