This week, NBA point guard Russell Westbrook updated his line for Barney's, a collection of high-fashion-trolling joggers, shirts and generally loud athleisure wear. In this collection, he included a jumpsuit (above, $500) that underlines a summer trend: jumpsuits. Jumpsuits are a thing now.

This is listed for $800, used, on StyleForum. It has not been sold.
