New Trend Pattern: Boiler Suit
Boiler Suit
The classic trousers and shirt combination is just too boring, dresses are too feminine and anyway, you are ready to try some-thing new? Then you are in the right place with our fashion focus.

Boiler suits (a.k.a. work coveralls) are this season's must-have fresh off the runway and it is in the true spirit of the ongoing utility fashion trend. The differentiation from the common jumpsuit is in the stand-out details like snaps, exposed and pronounced metal zippers, eyelets, D-rings, elasticized casings and such.

For those looking to stay true to the original idea of the coverall, sew it in a durable fabric like canvas or twill in a sand or olive tone as highlighted by Talbot Runhof and Paul & Joe. An interesting rejuvenation is to take the masculine cut and transform it with an ultra-feminine fabric such as satin or taffeta (Blumarine) making it a focal point as a boiler suit to style with sexy heels and lots of jewelry.
Recreate the trending style with "this pattern!" Here we cut it with the matte side as the main look, and the sophisticated shimmer to punctuate as the accent at the rolled sleeves. Exposed zippers in front, at the pockets and at the side hems are essential elements for the on-trend fashion statement.
Keep it casual by pairing "this jumpsuit" with a pair of sneakers and your signature "leather jacket" :
Pumped Up
Pump up the look with some heels and for extra warmth before the season is in full swing with a "cozy matching vest".
