My first fashion obsession of 2019 - Boilersuits

photoprese.JPG

There are fewer things you can be comfortable in over wearing a boilersuit. Loose-fitting but flattering, casual but chic with heels and easy to layer throughout the year, this pedigree breed of an all-in-one is a true wonder. I have an age-old Topshop cotton / linen boilersuits lurking in my Summer wardrobe as it’s the kind of throw-on piece that is easy to wear and comes back around in fashion every couple of years.

At the end of 2018 I noticed a resurgence of the boilersuit on the high street, in social media and I started feeling the urge to wear one with a roll neck underneath. I tried Topshops stitch denim one but I seemed to be inbetween sizes to make it work. Selling out twice now, this is the third delivery of the denim one and they now have it in different fabrics and colours which makes me think this trend is only going to get bigger and better into Spring Summer.

Since this big hitter I am confident that like the jumpsuit the boilersuit is versatile, stylish, easy to wear and well translate well into next season.

So I have done all the hard work for you and found the best boilersuits on the high street right now so you can get yours before everyone else - you can thank me later!

blazer of glory

If there’s one purchase you need to make to update your New Season wardrobe, a checked blazer should be it. It's top of my Autumn shopping list and I am currently completely obsessed with my new check blazer from Mango - Prince of Wales check blazer

Blazers never go out of Fashion & give you endless styling options. From a simple jeans & tee look, to teaming with Summer dresses; I love the versatility of this chic wardrobe essential.

The trend has originated from street style pictures from London fashion week in the Spring has made a heritage checked blazer a big hit across the high street. Having spotted many double-breasted Prince of Wales check jackets from Balenciaga, Gucci and Prada at around £1300 each, luckily the high street have some cheaper gems for your new season must have jacket. This trend is definitely worth investing in, and I for one will be wearing mine layered over shirts, t-shirts, dresses, knitwear and under my coat all Autumn - Winter.

Believe me it will be the hardest working item in your wardrobe this season and it gives you endless versatility for new outfits over current clothes you own over the next couple of weeks. It's the ultimate layering piece in your wardrobe

Check out my style stories and how I have styled this wardrobe hero into my current wardrobe.
