Trend alert: Chic jumpsuits replace the red carpet dress

Move over fancy gowns, there’s a new red carpet staple in town and she’s practical and pretty. Jumpsuits have been invading the style scene for several seasons now and they’ve quickly become a red carpet staple.

So much so that we’ve recently found ourselves wondering: Are jumpsuits the new dress? And are those luxe, lustworthy designer gowns a thing of the past on the red carpets? We hardly think so. If you ask us, designer gowns have and always will be an award season staple.

But if these stylish celebs have anything to say about it, jumpsuits will be spotted more and more on the red carpet all year long, from small premieres to major award shows. Big name and affordable designers are pushing the boundaries of fashion with their latest jumpsuit styles, creating versions for every personality ranging from the glam gal to the boho chick. And really, what gal could be opposed to an increase in her outfit options?
