In the world of fashion forecasting, they say three's a trend. So when we caught Alexa Chung, Leandra Medine and Olivia Palermo all rocking a boiler suit, we knew it was going to be huge.
Styled with an air of fuss-free sophistication, the industry favourite is gaining new traction on the street thanks to its androgynous overtones and all in one capability - making Monday morning dressing a breeze!
Showcasing a new admiration for surplus chic and all things functional, style insiders across all fashion capitals are embracing a next generation approach to utility dressing. An ingenious way of shaving precious minutes off your what to wear routine, loose fit industrial design is back with a BANG and we can’t wait to jump into this season's default outfit.
Harmonising the worlds of fashion and function, the boiler suit has had a 21st-century makeover since you last called out the plumber. Less saggy bottoms and more red carpet allure, durable work wear corduroy has been replaced with a range of light and feminine fabrics, whilst the cargo pockets and tool belt have been upgraded for dazzling details and understated glamour.
A chic daytime counterpoint with serious streetwear credentials, this no muss, no fuss attitude to everyday styling makes layering a breeze and accessories anyone’s game.
Encapsulating an eternal coolness, even curvy girls can get in on the action, with high luxe and prêt à porter designers stepping up to the plate with a selection of high glam and plain Jane designs that share a common thread – standard issue style.
A modern alternative to work chic suiting or a lazy weekend go to, this dark denim boiler suit is a buy now and love forever classic.
Designed with functional zips and a straight talking aesthetic, Stella McCartney’s trademark minimalism works beautifully with the boy meets girl allure of this versatile design.
Playing with the re-emergence of safety yellow this season, we’ve paired our bright yellow Bettie shirt with this long sleeved jumpsuit for a flash of colour to restart your engines this fall. A beautifully feminine contrast to the brash masculinity of this boiler suit, our VAUGHAN California Sunshine yellow short sleeved shirt sits neatly under the heavy cotton weave of its practical counterpart, working as a vibrant contrast to its rugged aesthetic.
Styled with kerbside classics like these neon detail running shoes and a banana yellow clutch, this ensemble screams effortless chic with an edgy allure.
Topped off with some architectural frames and a functional time piece, this ode to the on-trend siren suit proves that this one piece wonder could be the winter wardrobe statement piece you’ve been searching for… Handy, huh?
