Return of the jumpsuit

The one piece jumpsuit was originally used by skydivers.  It resurfaced in the 1960s as a fashion statement and made a big comeback in the 80s.  Now, the jumpsuit is back again, reappearing above as worn by Helena Christensen; the jumpsuit shorts.  

There are many different jumpsuit styles: shorts, skinny pants, genie pants, strapless even backless.  The popularity of its return is obvious why, it's comfortable and looks great!  The wide leg jumpsuit with exposed back below is elegant style.  Alternatively, skinny leg jumpsuit pants with strapless top, side pockets and belt can be dressed up with a pair of heels or down with sandals.  What's not to love.  

Subject to personal style, preference and taste.  But can be a lot of fun.
