Calling all electricians and plumbers: prepare to be the envy of the fashion crowd, because your uniform is so on-trend right now. Like the older, more understated cousin of this summer’s buttoned and printed jumpsuits, the boilersuit has arrived just in time for autumn, bringing with it a more androgynous edge. Over the last few days we’ve seen the trend appear on the streets of Copenhagen and also filter into the new-in sections of our favourite high street stores. It didn’t take long for the whole team to fall in love.
How do we love thee boilersuit? Let us count the ways. Firstly, it’s incredibly easy to wear—simply throw it on and add some statement shoes and you’re good to go. It is, however, far from boring—just think of it as a statement outfit contained within one item of clothing. Secondly, it’s perfect for this time of year when the weather can fluctuate from chilly in the morning to muggy mid-afternoon. Finally, it’s so easy to find expensive-looking pieces for less, whether it’s Topshop’s black boilersuit (a Who What Wear fave) or the real-deal overalls from Amazon (a fashion editor secret).
