Trend of the week: How to simmer in a boiler suit

BOILING POINT: Meet your all-in-one sartorial solution says Annmarie O’Connor.

Inspiration

Fashion loves a challenge.

The greater the odds, the bigger the thrill. If this season’s boilersuit furore is any indication, all bets are on.

Billed as fuss-free, cool and comfortable, the industrial vibe of the updated onesie makes it a cooler cousin to the jumpsuit.

It’s anti-fashion backstory (think: munitions factories, refuse removal, Breaking Bad) is what makes it so appealing. Make it work and win big in the style stakes.

Loosely translated: figure out how to navigate a trip to the loo and consider yourself a de facto trend champ.
