There’s nothing more fashionable than the jumpsuit – right? Right? Anyway, it was a century ago that the Italian artist Thayaht proposed a one-piece garment with buttons down the front as the next big thing in fashion. The jumpsuit hasn’t quite become as universal as he hoped, but it is the only outfit that connects Rosie the Riveter, Evel Knievel, Amelia Earhart, David Bowie and the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Plus: want to wear an Elvis jumpsuit but don’t want to pay huge auction prices? Try the new Elvis jumpsuit-style hoodie!
