If you thought SS18 was peak utility dressing season, then think again, friends. The humble cargo pant was great, but for AW18 the ante has been seriously upped. Enter this season’s answer to the jumpsuit: the boiler suit. Neither a suit nor for fixing boilers in, these bad boys have been the surprise breakaway trend among street-stylers at New York Fashion Week. From the Ganni catwalk to ASOS Insider Kicki, this is your cheat sheet to styling your new favourite onesie.
GET ON BOARD WITH THE BOILER SUIT
By Caroline Ferry, 12 September 2018
We first laid eyes on the blushing boiler suit at Ganni’s AW18 show during Copenhagen Fashion Week. It has the relaxed but not-too-baggy fit of your favourite denim jacket, with the sweet-as shade of a pretty party dress. The on-point waistband is there to lengthen your legs, so be sure to swerve a too-low dropped waist if you can. Matching pink boots finish it off.
Try it on
This wearable washed-pink iteration is slim-fit, so there's no swamping being done, thank you very much. If you're petite, go for a cropped-leg version with longer sleeves like Kicki, or go full length and roll up the sleeves like our pals at Ganni.
