The one-piece wonder has its blue period. By Christene Barberich & Piera Gelardi
In fashion, it's the ultimate working-class hero: The jumpsuit. This '80s relic has been re-purposed over the last few seasons in a variety of shapes and styles, from Dynasty-worthy lounge-wear to nubile play-suits. But our latest paramour to emerge in the pursuit of one'ness ironically returns to its blue-collar roots—literally.

Whether it's Mayle's Josie romper with come hither straps, Acne's classic deep-blue button-up jumper, or A.P.C.'s old-school gas-pumping onesie, these jumpsuits play up the carefree side of spring and summer, and take all the work out of looking good.
