With NASA's Juno reaching Jupiter this past 4th of July weekend and Elon Musk planning to colonize Mars, it appears #Space is on the mind of everyone. Even the fashion crowd has embraced the recent trend in space flight with embracement galaxy prints, techy fabrics, and even spacesuits. Primarily a male fashion trend, spacesuits have appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue and even are available for purchase on retail sites.

A new space age trend?

As discovered by Mashable.com in the article, “Looking For A Hot New Look? Try Wearing A Spacesuit,” this trend in space suit was first spotted in One Direction’s music video, “Drag Me Down,” where all of the band members sported the iconic orange jumpsuit.

A similar, NASA-approved suit can be found at the online website, Alpha Industries.com on sale for a cool $59.99. Alpha Industries began as a contractor to the United States military, but now sells wares to an international audience. Its bright color will help its wearer stick out in a crowd, but it may not be totally appropriate for the street. But, fashion never bends to rules. For aspiring or novice astronauts, this is a pretty affordable way to travel to the moon in style.  

Normcore in Space?

Jumpsuits have been en vogue for women’s fashion for years, but there’s been a lack of options for men. In its article, Mashable.com notes the Adidas Y-3 spacesuit, a stylish all-black outfit that is made from advanced fabrics and technologies. Although made specifically for Virgin Galactic and only a prototype, the silhouette looks more streetwear than moon wear.

The Adidas Y-3 space suit is forgoing the usual bulky style for something much more sleeker, which recalls the anti-fashion style normcore

There are a number of non-tech, utilitarian jumpsuits available at high-end retailers, but there is yet a space-approved jumpsuit. As long as there’s a lack of space worthy jumpsuits, it appears the spacesuit is the next best thing. It’s time to take fashion to the moon!
