Jumpsuits as their name suggests were made for literally jumping out of planes, that was back in the 1900s. For the longest time, factory workers were associated with jumpsuits, since they were constructed as a utility piece of clothing. It covered them and lasted years. It was a less fashion-driven garment. Even the introduction of stiff denim dungarees and jumpsuits was to retain the garment for longer wears.

It wasn't until the 1930s when Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli designed jumpsuits for evening wear where she features a slim waist silhouette to make it look fancier next to evening gowns. But it wasn't until the 1960s that they became a part of mainstream fashion and almost everyone was seen in them. In the 70s they became a unisex garment that everyone could wear. Popular celebrities like Cher and Elvis Presley made them a part of their famous stage personas and often became synonymous with the style.
