FW2012 NYFW TREND ALERT: FLIGHT SUITS ON THE RUNWAY

I’m loving all the flight suits I’ve been seeing at different shows! Spotted this fresh look at Cynthia Rowley in plaid and silky prints, also today at Jill Stuart and again at Band of Outsiders (Scott sent down a more languid silhouette, one of them topped off by an oversized fur collar, how fierce is that!)

A masculine version in dark plaid at Cynthia Rowley

Love this softer silk printed version in a warm color, also at Cynthia Rowley

And this short version presents a multitude of ways to play with the styling =)

Jill Stuart then showed how you can capture the essence of the look and create a nighttime appropriate option.

A great nighttime option as an alternate to the LBD, understated AND unexpected

And of course at the Band of Outsiders show just a few hours ago, what an awesome show!

This neckline is just begging for a statement necklace, something from Alex and Lee for sure!!

I DIE over this!!!

Love the varieties in shapes and fabrics so far and think this is such a fresh way to introduce jumpsuits to the no fuzz kind of girls. And what a throwback to utilitarian dressing and perhaps we’re veering away from the prim and proper ladylike vibe of the past seasons??

UPDATE!!

Just spotted this really cool version from Rodarte, which showed a much more commercial but still poetic and pretty collection. The fact that there’s a jumpsuit involved means the sisters got utility on the mind!
