The jumpsuit has a legendary history. It first launched into orbit as a practical piece of clothing worn by skydivers and parachuters to quite literally "jump" into. (Amelia Earhart was a fan.) Then, in the '30s, Elsa Schiaperelli revolutionized the one-piece and introduced it as part of her designs on the European fashion circuit. The jumpsuit trend later infiltrated the silver screen thanks to the silky one-piece donned by Katharine Hepburn in Stage Door, and it became a historic symbol of female power worn on Rosie the Riveter. (We must also pay tribute to the glitzy bell-bottomed jumpsuit versions that floated on the dance floor at the iconic Studio 54.)

Fast forward to present day and there are basically no rules of when and where to rock a jumpsuit, even when addressing the boardroom (virtually or otherwise). They are widespread on the spring/summer runways—designers love a good jumpsuit—and the ease of wearing the one-piece does not translate to laziness, but rather the foresight to get ready in one fell swoop. Whether you choose to dress up a utilitarian-inspired version or slip into a silky evening number, we think you'll be hard-pressed to find a reason not to add jumpsuits into your office-outfit rotation. Ahead, 12 work-friendly one-pieces to choose from.
