Jumpsuits have been all the rage for the last few seasons and with good reason!

The boiler suit is the cooler, sophisticated older cousin of the jumpsuit that smokes cigarettes and causes sartorial scenes at the local McDonald's. You should get one.
Raise your hand if you are tired of squeezing into skinny jeans and leggings... thank the fashion gawds for wide leg pants and joggers! Ladies, put the skinnies and yoga pants on hold and pull up a pair of wide leg pants in a variety of fabrics (including denim) or easy to wear jogger pants so that you can stylishly and effortlessly run errands.
Guess what print is back?! Tie dye- but not in that obnoxious hippy dippy generic t-shirt way... this time around the psychedelic print is featured on luxury fabrics and embellishments and looks grown up compared to the DIY rubber band version. Although that still looks pretty cool to me too, especially when worn with a denim mini skirt and a pair of lace up sandals.
