Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Trend: Jumpsuits

I know that it is hard to believe considering the absurdly large amount of snow that we currently have on the ground here in the C-bus (with even more to come tonight and tomorrow!) but
Spring is truly right around the corner! In fact, the first day of Spring is next month on March 20th! Since Spring is about to be sprung, I figured that it is time to kick off my run-down of the 2010 Spring/Summer trends. This Spring there is a trend for everyone, whether your style is more traditional or more contemporary.

One trend featured on the SS2010 runways (Above: Hermes; Moschino Cheap & Chic; Rochas; Stella McCartney) emerged last Spring and is sticking around this Spring as well. Some call it a jumpsuit, while others call it a romper, a jumper, or a onesie. No matter what you call it, however, the key to this look is to make sure that you choose an age-appropriate jumpsuit. The shorter the style, the more you risk looking like you belong back in middle-school. Also, be sure to choose the pattern of your jumpsuit carefully -- bold prints have the potential to overwhelm your frame when you wear a jumpsuit because it is all over your body. My favorite jumpsuits typically are ankle or knee length and are a solid color. When this trend first emerged last Spring I admittedly hated it. I will now admit that jumpsuits are starting to grow on me although I am still not sure that it is something I could pull off without looking childish. If you, however, are interested in giving this trend a try below are some options to choose from: Aqua silk racerback jumpsuit for $98 available on; ASOS silk open back jumpsuit for $101.98 available on; "Beacon" jumper for $88 available on; Dolce Vita "Cornelia" romper for $144 available on; "Wild Yonder" romper for $158 available on; Urban Renewal strappy ruffle jumper for $58 available on; Urban Renewal printed linen jumper for $58 available on; Two tone romper for $22.80 available on; "Sofia" jumpsuit for $158 available on; Robert Rodriguez cropped jumpsuit for $495 available on; Miss Milne printed trim jumpsuit for 135.98 available on; Lucca Couture silk zip-front jumper for $58 available on; Kimichi Blue sky scalloped jumper for $58 available on; Kimichi Blue ruffle apron jumper for $58 available on; Hotel Arizona jumper for $62 available on
