This high-street boiler suit everyone is buying right now

When an item gets a lot of love on social media, you have to be quick off the mark these days. Like when Urban Outfitters got more stock of their boiler suit and it sold out. Twice.

Oh, and they told me the waiting list is was the highest it's ever seen (a few weeks ago they said 'a record breaking product in terms of pre-orders to date, and it’s looking likely to sell out before the product even hits the shops').

I've spotted it on a few editors and influencers, and with spring round the corner, it looks like the pink version is the clear winner here, though the other pastel colours (butter yellow and lilac) will look equally chic.

If you're not feeling it, you can go for the more classic black version, which is a great mid-season buy.

As it's quite a casual item, I'd recommend dressing it up with some barely-there sandals, though it'll look equally cool with your favourite kicks.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
