Iconic & Rare 1970s Halston Metallic Gold Lame Lurex Backless Jumpsuit

This Halston IV jumpsuit is a special piece and it is super rare to boot. I have had the caftan version in this same metallic gold fabric in the shop a few times now but the jumpsuits are very hard to find. The design is simple but at the same time it has so much impact with its bare and sexy feel combined with that gold glamour and glitz. 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 jumpsuit is just the perfect piece. The bodice is scooped at the neck with little gold ties in the same fabric that extend out and tie behind the neck. You simply tie it in place and the front scoops in a graceful curve. The ties give you some control on how high the front sits. By adjusting how tight you tie it you can have it sit high up the chest or leave it looser to drape more and sit lower on the chest. The bottom sides curve around just slightly to the back so that your entire back is exposed and bare. The waist is elastic and there is a little matching double tie belt there that you can use to cinch it in as much as you wish. It skims over the hips and then the legs are cut in a bit of a peg leg where they narrow down just slightly as they reach their hems. The fabric has just a touch of transparency to it which adds to its sexiness. It is a piece that is incredibly easy to wear. It can go from entertaining at home with flats, to full on evening glamour. Adding layers under or over it can change up its look completely. It is just amazing. Excellent condition
