With Irish weather conditions cooling down, practicality is persevering. Some unlikely trendsetters have brought about AW18’s newest craze – boiler suits. Yes, I hadn’t anticipated this either; but I am psyched. I’m a comfort queen, so I’ve fully jumped on the boiler suit bandwagon; they’re like fancy pyjamas you can wear outside. What more could you want?
As we slowly transition from summer heat to autumn breeze, it’s time to turn those playsuits into jumpsuits – utilitarian style. Once known as a uniform for janitors and painters, fashion experimenters have brought this working look a whole new lease of life. As an all-in-one garment intended for hard labour, style boundaries have certainly been crossed – but, isn’t that what makes fashion so fun? Baggy overalls have never looked, or felt, so good.
From head-to-toe fuchsia pink, white linen and denim silhouettes, this streamlined, masculine cut is a trend you wouldn’t want to ignore; perfect for women who crave both simplicity and comfort. They give you a whole look in one go. Serving both form and function, you can make this trend casual with pure white kicks for weekend brunch dates, dress it up at night with a pointed heeled boot, tie it at the waist, or simply add a pair of statement earrings for a feminine touch. Pulling off this one-piece wonder is all about the styling.
Since this season is all about layering; warm this ensemble up with an extra-large tweed coat or a turtleneck underneath. Whichever you decide (maybe even both), take a fresh approach with these five one-pieces I’ve sussed out for your ultimate transitional wardrobe; each guaranteeing you an effortless cool-girl look you can wear as of today:
