Although the variety of pieces in a man’s wardrobe is expanding, for the most part it’s limited. Pants, jackets, shirts and come summer shorts – that’s about it. Men’s jumpsuits are trending in the latest collections from Men’s Fashion Week making for an interesting new wardrobe option so good it should be a staple.
The men’s jumpsuit isn’t anything new. This utilitarian inspired silhouette often shows up in designer fashion collections. However this season there’s a few updates creating more more to choose from and making the trend more wearable than ever before.
Literal iterations of flight suits, mechanics coveralls and all around workwear like those from Dickie’s and Carhartt are a mainstay of the men’s jumpsuit trend. They’re affordable and the fit is loose and comfortable making for a foolproof, go-to outfit for summer. This look is essentially foolproof. Just check out New York based fashion stylist I am H Diddy rockin’ this vintage jumpsuit during Fashion Week.
Then there’s this old school racing inspired speed suit spotted on the streets just further proving – guys, you can do this!
But if you want something trendier or more polished there are options for that too. Tailoring and a suiting fabric can give a more refined business attire look like those in Etro’s Fall collection. Jil Sander’s take on the on trend bomber style top is another modern approach while you can get a street wear, downtown look with a jumpsuit that zips or has shorts and short sleeves instead of full length.
