Style Glossary: Jumpsuit

At last week's Brit awards Fearne Cotton made a bit of a fashion faux-pas with a red jump suit. However, they can look really good and are perfect for the summer months just make sure they fit you comfortably and show the shape of your body. Here's the definition:

A one-piece garment that combines a shirt and trousers and usually closes up the front. Originally worn by aviators and parachute troopers during WWI and WWII, jumpsuits became popular during the 1960s, especially for use while skiing.
