Me in a killer denim jumpsuit - 1976At the time, I didn’t realize what a stylish kindergartener I was – I just thought it was cool that I dressed like my big sister. Looking at these pictures, I almost feel like we could send these vintage gems straight onto the runway today, but I don’t think they would fit even the most anorexic of models! They are very trend-right. I particularly appreciate the red topstitching on the collar and the exposed, red vislon zipper!
My sister Kim in her matching jumpsuit - 1976Denim is always an important fabric, but some seasons it’s more of a staple than others. Spring 2010 proved to be a very “denim-friendly.” Designers such as Alexander McQueen and Helmut Lang used two-piece dressing in head to toe denim, resulting in a jumpsuit look. Jean Paul Gaultier showed elaborate overalls and corset-like jackets. Ralph Lauren and D&G’s collections were saturated with denim; in fact, I think D&G used the fabric in every look.
So, keep your old jean jackets if you haven’t tossed them already, hang on to your cut offs and mind your miniskirts. Accessorize properly and you should be able to wear all of the denim goodies in your arsenal!
