TSE’s intern Bronagh Rafferty talks boilersuits. Where to shop, how to style and most importantly, our top five must-have spanners.
The boilersuit trend is here to stay in 2019. First spotted in Copenhagen Fashion Week in August, the boilersuit is an androgynistic dream. Personally, as a serial dungaree and jumpsuit wearer, boilersuits aren’t a far cry from my day to day outfit. They’re now a throw-on-and-go integral piece to my wardrobe. They take me from 9am lectures in Salford to 9pm drinks in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Granted, I’m lucky in the sense that Manchester nightlife is notoriously casual but an effortlessly cool one piece is the key to nailing 2019 street style.
There’s something boyish and playful about a boilersuit. Not to mention the multitude of roles you can adopt..
