Call it a jumper, romper, onesie, or my personal favorite, the playsuit; whatever the word, IT is seriously fun and honestly funny. I have quite a collection going, and it never would have occurred to me that it was worth mentioning until I happened upon vogue.com and saw some of my very own former employers wearing the onesie and faithfully giving their favorite recommendations of where to find this "new" treat.
Since I no longer work at Vogue, I have a freedom of dress that was somewhat stifled during my internship. It seemed that Vogue was a little too serious about fashion, where I always thought that fashion was supposed to be fun. It is a little bit humorous, I think, that these frigidly fashionable women at Vogue are running around in rompers!
Giggles and whispers aside, I didn't quite like their picks for the cutest playsuits, so here are my own runway inspirations:
top shop unique spring rtw
ysl spring rtw, more formal and sophisticated
marc jacobs spring rtw with frills
house of holland spring rtw
ysl fall 2009 means the jumper is here to stay.
