Packing will be a breeze with these easy jumpsuits and rompers.
For a lot of people, packing for a vacation is anything but pleasant. Worst case, it ends up being an anxiety-inducing experience that, above all, tests your consolidation skills. Suitcases are not meant to fit all of your favorite clothes, accessories, and beauty products. And that’s why you have to pack smart — fewer pieces will prevent you from overpacking and maybe even save you that overweight charge at the airport.
When it comes to functional and stylish clothing, jumpsuits are winners in both categories. The history of this now-closet-staple dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when the Florentine artist and designer Thayat cut out two T-shaped pieces of fabric and sewed them together. He considered it the ultimate no-fuss, anti-bourgeois piece of clothing. It was later adopted as a uniform of sorts by parachuters and skydivers, so it became known as a “jumpsuit” — literally, a suit for jumping.
Almost a century later, Thayat’s invention has reached a cult status similar to the LBD, because of its practicality and comfort. And if there’s something all travelers can get behind, it is exactly that — easy-to-wear clothing that gives you freedom of movement and is compact when packed. Rompers are also an excellent choice for packing because they can do double-duty as both your beach cover-up and daily outfits.
Here, 18 comfortable and chic jumpsuits we’ll be packing this vacation season.
