1980s Donna Karan Plunging Stretch Stirrup Pant Jumpsuit

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a great example of Donna Karan's early work and how she sculpted pieces to the body. It is also an extremely chic and wearable and makes an amazing impact once on the body. It is made of a stretch wool knit jersey that has a bit of weight to it that allows it to skim and mold to the body rather then cling and be unflattering. This fabric choice really allows it to move well and wear well. The cut is fantastic with a sexy, edgy feel to it. It has slim cut legs, skims over your middle and the neckline and sides are cut low and plunging in deep V's. I love how the legs of the jumpsuit especially. They are fitted through the butt and upper thighs that then narrow and end just above the ankle with that signature 1980s stirrup wrapping around the foot. Stirrup pants all over the runway for fall and this jumpsuit incorporates them fabulously. It is one of the best jumpsuits I have had in the shop. Excellent condition.

Unlined and the stretch fabric allows you to just step into it and slip it on. It has no closures. The fabric does have stretch so it will fit a range of sizes. It is tagged a vintage DK Medium
