What the heck is a salopette?

One of my students said she went shopping with her teenage daughter and bought her a salopette. I had no idea what she was talking about since it's French, but she sketched it for me and I knew immediately. This is a salopette:

They are all the rage here! What is the English word for this? A one-piece? Capri-length denim short-alls are really popular right now, too.

As are floral print hoodies like this:

All the cool mamas wear these!

And these boots are really popular here, as are cowboy boots with actual lace all over them:

But the biggest fashion trend right now is:

Shorts with tights! Everyone here wears shorts with tights, from little girls to grown women.

I can't get away with any of these styles, because, you know, I am like an Extra-Large here. I think Japanese people can pretty much wear anything and look good, and I think it is so fun to window-shop. Are shorts with tights popular in the U.S. now, too?

No, but anything spring is very in- like the flower hoodie- love it! Anything pink, yellow or in very bright hues. I love the shorts, tights and boots combo- fun!

huh, I like the shorts and leggings lots. I will let you know when spring comes around, then people can stop wearing thermals and jackets and break out some style!oh, but TOMs shoes are a big deal right now, they are pretty in. If you buy a pair they donate shoes to Africa, or somewhere..

It is funny at the mall I see some window displays but never go in so I feel like I do not even really know what is "in" right now! BUT the one-piece are in fashion right now and they call them "rompers" in US fashion...yeah those and tights anyone who is small can look good - I agree there! So you can (: Drapey shorts are in too but those are funny looking I think! And really skinny legging jeans or denim leggings.
