The Year of the Jumpsuit - 1969

It's 1969, and the pages of magazines are filled with jumpsuits in every color and fabric imaginable. Here are a few to spark your imagination.

I showed you some Jane Irwill sweaters from 1955 last week. Here, their take on the jumpsuit in pumpkin or brown ribbed wool with chain belts at the waist.
