The boiler suit. Two words that evoke images of greasy car garages and halloween garms of questionable taste. But no longer. We saw them at LC:M back in June and now we’re seeing them on the street. An offshoot of this summer's unisex utilitarian trend (think Kanye’s Yeezy Seasons 1 and 2), the rise of the boiler suit really does show that the days of female fashion hogging all the interesting new shapes are gone. Here are three different but effective ways to ace your jumpsuit-based outfit.
Ways to wear boiler suits
By Benjamin Van Den Broek, 7 November 2015
Simple and slick
You can’t wear a coat all day, plus why hide your new threads? Go head-to-toe monochrome with classic Cons. Just add a white tee and you’re onto a super simple one-piece winner.
Cool and unconventional
Still in doubt? Just think of the boiler suit as an acceptable out-of-the-house onesie. Switch one out for your standard pair of jeans and add in white tee for balance. If khaki is your colour, break up the jumpsuit-ness with a strategically tied checked shirt. Finish with a bangin' leather biker and essential All Stars.
If beige is the new black, then a marriage of the two is a match made in colour-coordinated heaven. Chuck an oversized camel overcoat over that boiler suit for instant styled-up steez. Footwear-wise, go for all-white trainers for a Scandi-inspired outfit that’ll really set you apart when the mercury drops.
