workout jumpsuits Get ready to embrace the jumpsuit. The one-piece wonder that chic women are wearing out to brunch or on a date is now breaking the fashion sweat barrier and leaping into fitness studios.

“Jumpsuits make for an easy workout outfit and are incredibly comfortable,” says fitness fashion trend-spotter Caroline Gogolak, the co-founder of Carbon 38.

Start by rocking one in a barre class, where Gogolak recommends pairing the jumpsuit with an over-sized t-shirt hanging off one shoulder and knotted to the side, for a chic ’80s look (yes, there is such a thing!).

“Women are often intimidated by them, however, they can be incredibly flattering and sexy when styled properly,” she says. And Gogolak means on all body types, not just gazelle-like glamazons at ModelFit.

“They have few seams,” she explains, “which is great for anyone who’s conscious of the dreaded muffin-top from leggings or capris.”
