It's no surprise that the jumpsuit dominated the trend list of 2009. Many of the hottest stars began by wearing the sleek 70's inspired piece at formal occasions. Rihanna donned an slimline Helmut Lang suit at the Inglorious Basterds premier. As usual she added her edgy touch with lace gloves, vintage wayfarer sunglasses and layers and layers of covetable pearls around her dainty neck.
For those of us that don't have premiers and openings to attend anytime soon, then the more relaxed jumpsuit works perfectly for casual everyday wear. Kate Bosworth went for a blue grey jumpsuit as a daytime alternative to black and styled it with a sleek bun and Tom Ford 'Cary' wayfarer sunglasses. The looser style looks perfect cinched at the waist with ballet flats and on trend designer sunglasses.
With every trend, we see new variations on the same style. Rachel Bilson, Leighton Meester and Sophia Bush wore youthful summer jumpsuits accentuated by bow, frill and floral details. For summer, the short jumpsuit works hand in hand with our active Australian lifestyle. It's a mixture of sexy, cute and practical-no panty flashing in sight!
