It’s official. This is the next big fashion trend…
When it comes to staying ahead of the sartorial agenda, always look to Bella Hadid. She forecasted the ‘athleisure’ trend way before the street style mavens caught on. Made the case for round, coloured lens sunglasses last summer. And revealed the perm – as did Gigi - to be a genuinely viable ‘do for spring / summer ’17 (okay, we’re still not entirely sure about this one, but naturally the supermodel looks incredible. Here’s the pictures to prove it).
And the future of fashion, according to Miss Hadid? The boiler suit.
Yes, the utilitarian trend you’ll be familiar with if you’ve ever watched Flashdance or Ghostbusters (and if you haven’t, well then, you are in for an ‘80s film treat this weekend). Although instead of the ‘hi-vis’/stopping traffic look, thanks to the high-fashion gods, the BS gets a cool-over this season.
Bella recently opted for a denim floral number from Adam Selman’s autumn ’17 collection (it helps that she’s styled her look perfectly with an oversized Chanel weekend bag, chunky boots and black sunnies. Model off-duty style at its best).
Top designers were in firm agreement this Fashion Week too. Blue is the new black, with Maria Grazia Chiuri sending models down the Dior runway in tough denim boiler suits. More playful options included a hygge vibe flannel number at Max Mara and Camel-hued looks with gold floral prints at Ralph Lauren.
If anything, this chic ensemble will please those who want to get ready in 0-60 seconds in the morning. Aka, all of us.
