Style | Boilersuits aren’t just for plumbers…

When I was a kid, my Dad used to work for British Gas, installing and repairing boilers.  He wore a royal blue boilersuit to work every day. Covered in paint and plaster from decorating the house, he would heave this heavy piece of utility clothing on over his jeans and tshirt to work in.

It’s a far cry from the modern boilersuits that are all over the high street at the moment.  He couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw me wearing mine the other day.  I got teased about sending me off to fix the heating – yeah yeah! It’s fashion Dad!

So if you aren’t wishing to decorate or fix the heating, but are really into comfy clothing, then the boilersuit should be making an appearance into your wardrobe.  There are so many on the market at the moment, from zip up utility styles, denim numbers to soft belted linen ones.

Here are a few of my favourites from around the high street:

So, will you be joining the boilersuit trend?  I love it.
