It seems that the majority of modern fashion has its origins in the military or the work force – on this blog we’ve previously documented the rise of both the blue jean and the T-shirt to its dominant position in casual wear.
The one-piece jumpsuit has been a favorite of pilots and astronauts, who to this day wear insulated, fire-retardant jumpsuits where other clothing could float or flap during maneuvers or in a zero gravity environment.
Meanwhile, overalls have long since been the uniform of farmers and construction workers until the 1960s, where young people began to wear them as a fashion statement.
The first on our list is this understated jumpsuit from Reiko. This jumpsuit is versatile enough for you to wear during both day-time excursions and night-time; simply swap your trainers for a heel and accessories and you’re good to go!
Layne Denim Jumpsuit
Wear this indigo jumpsuit with two or three buttons down for a dressed down denim look, ideal for evening parties or chillier summer days. The drawstring waistline allows you to pull in the silhouette for a more form hugging fit.
Denim Overall Sofia
Last on our list is what Reiko describe as the ‘perfect overall’. Light and comfortable, these overalls are perfect for warmer climes, and are just begging to be paired with a cute pair of trainers or vans.
