The boiler suit, the go-to-outfit for jack-of-all-trades workers has been given fashion’s stamp of approval.
I had read that boiler suits were going to be “in for Spring,” but it didn’t have much legs until Doutzen Kroes was seen wearing one at Stella McCartney’s Fall 2019 show, and Gwyneth Paltrow this week.
Some of the standout examples include the boiler suit seen on the runway of Dries Van Noten, where it was embellished with a festive fringe, and paired with a sleek pair of heels.
At Celine, a model walked the runway in a zipper accented leather boiler suit, for an undeniably sexy yet androgynous vibe.
Austere takes on boiler suits came from Giambattista Valli and Jil Sander, while at Hermes boiler suits came in festive colours like bright red and neon blue.
It might look scary, but the boiler suit can be the perfect addition to your Spring wardrobe.
Roomy and comfy, it’s can be a much cooler (and simpler) alternative to the humble top and trouser combo.
Just think of it this way; it’s a minimum effort outfit with maximum results – all you need to do is put it on, accessories and go.
As a lover of a one-piece I would try out this trend, but probably opt for the dressier kind.
