Amazing 1970s Halston Red Jersey Halter Neck Jumpsuit w Open Bare Back & Ultra Wide Legs

This Halston IV jumpsuit is a special piece simply because these jumpsuits are just simply harder to find. Plus they are fabulous pieces to wear. The design is simple but at the same time it has so much impact with its bare and sexy feel combined with the open back and ultra wide legs. This one is clearly based on his original 1972 version that walked the runway that season. We have included a reference photo of that here to give you an idea of how fantastic this is on the body. It is an incredible piece that you can wear over and over and style it in a zillion ways depending on what you pair with it.

This is just a wow kind of piece. It is made from a red jersey that drapes over the body like magic. There is a a touch of Studio 54, disco era sexiness thrown in the mix and it just couldn't be better. It is one of those pieces that you just slip on and walk out the door. The jersey that it is made out of is easy to care for and will travel well. I love that you can pair this with flats for day or go all out glamour for night. The top plunges at the front and the halter triangles that cover the bust extend up and into ties that you tie behind the back of your neck. The plunge is not so deep that you don't feel safe wearing it but deep enough to feel very sexy. The back is left completely bare and it scoops down on a beautiful curve. There is no horizontal seam at the waist to break the eye though you could add a belt to really cinch in the waist and add more shape. The fabric has a touch of stretch so it is very comfortable once on the body. It skims over the hips and then the pants fall from there. They are extremely wide by the time they reach the floor with each one being a full 45" all the way around the hem. That extra wide width of each pant leg makes it look like you are wearing a dress when you are standing still but gives you the ease of a jumpsuit when you move. I love the movement this creates around your legs when you move. It is so sexy, so very easy to wear and it is the perfect red. Excellent condition with a small note below.

Fully lined in the same fabric as the exterior. It ties behind the back of the neck and there is a low set zipper at the back. The fabric has some stretch and I have given the comfortable range of measurements below. I see a small faint area where the fabric has darkened on the pant. There is so much fabric in the pants you don't see it once on the body. Please see the photo after the label shot
