Our mornings just got a hell of a lot easier thanks to this new jumpsuit update. We smell no hint of a micro-trend. The boiler suit is a total game-changer. An essential to be added to any Marie Kondo-fied wardrobe. Those who would rather spend an extra five in bed over remixing your shirts and skirts together say ‘I’.

Whether you’ve been binging on the Netflix series Wild Country or insta stalking Gigi – you would know this all-in-one is on the radar. Although it has strong roots as a WWII military fave, we have a feeling the street inspo is more a feminist nod to the women who went to work while their men were at war. It’s just the kind of empowered statement piece the ‘fourth-wavers’ are crushing on for its don’t-care-what-you-think vibe (see also the rise of dad sneakers). But don’t mistake nonchalance for lazy dressing. The boiler suit might be a staple made to get dirty but it looks just as good ordering a gin martini with an orange twist. Works hard, plays harder.

Ultra-flexible to suit any one of our many moods. Go overgrown tomboy with a casual sneaker or add some glitz for an after-dark special. To put the fun back in functionality try a contrasting coat or out-there bag. Think colour pops. Don’t be afraid of a bit of spice; the utility look of the boiler can handle the heat. It’s impossible to feel overdressed in something so comfy. Take inspiration from Italian stylist Diletta Bonaiuti: a sexy skivvy, socks and heel combo. Since your grooming time will be pared back, use the extra minutes to experiment with jewellery. Statement earrings flex easily between sunrise and sunset. Channel Maya Angelou fierceness with hoops, charm dangles or resin textures. Valet has you sorted.

However not all coveralls are created equal – opt for industrial shades and straight-leg cuts, keep flares for this season’s jeans. Look to C&M, Matin and Levi’s who keep the shapes pragmatic yet still ultra-femme. And bonus time: an outfit that protects you from everyday urban mess even ectoplasm.
