Trending Now: The Mechanic Jumpsuit

Fashion trends pop up monthly, so I take my willingness to invest seriously. For example, in the '80s overalls were all the rage, and I tried tirelessly to get them to work for me, but my slightly large bust held me back. Fast forward to 2019, and the mechanic-style jumpsuit is saturating the fashion sites. For me to commit, the same standard applies: would I be able to pull it off with my silhouette, and, could I get out of it quickly enough to use the ladies' room?

Roll the cuffs, add boots and great chandelier earrings and you’ve got yourself an outfit for a concert, evening out, sunset???

What’s great about this style of jumpsuit is that there is no defining waist, unless of course, you belt it. A straight silhouette goes a long way. Also, who doesn’t love big pockets? Thank you mechanics!

Straight lines and big pockets

Two features of Rachel Comey’s mechanic jumpsuit that stand out.

Rachel Comey is one of my favorite designers, so I trust her vision for a new fashion. She mixes different fabrics with her jumpsuits to open up the possibilities of where and when you can wear a jumpsuit.

The Envoy Jumpsuit has a soft fabric that smoothly works for a dinner out cocktails with friends but, can be an all-day work outfit as well.
