A big trend was popping up all over the runways at New York Fashion Week for the Spring 2009 season and into Fall. Many well known designers such as Slavatorre Ferragamo, Prada, Yves St. Laurent, and Gucci were gracing the runway with their gorgeous jumpsuits. This trend is fabulous because jumpsuits are so versatile! They can be worn with a jacket, over a blouse or basic tee, with a bold belt, as a suit, as capris, as shorts, dressy, or casual...you name it! I have chosen 6 runway looks as inspiration (from nymag.com) and found affordable jumpsuits in stores now that embody the feeling of each runway look. Enjoy!
