Jumpsuits, also called all-in-ones, were a great fashion trend of the 1960s and the 1970s. Now have truly been revived and since they are so practical they are sure to be a winner. Preen's lovely parachute silk jumpsuits are not to be confused with the all-in-one 1980s shell suits of yesteryear. Avoid any jumpsuits you see made of nylon rip-stop style parachute fabric, or you may well get a lot of déjà vu strange stares as people think - shell suit season! Choose this look and the fabric with great care.
Catsuits, or all-in-ones can be as classily glitzy as the Debenhams creamy oyster evening wear jumpsuit far left, or as cool and collected as the black safari style everyday wear near right.
