INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
6 NEW BOILER SUITS FOR SS19
By Ludovica Parisi, 24 March 2019
NGL, the idea of an all-leather boiler suit originally scared us. But then, Giorgia Tordini showed up at Paris Fashion Week with a full on brown leather jumpsuit and here we are – obsessed. Step it up with vinyl pointy boots or tone it down with chunky trainers – your call.
When we said the 90s were back, we weren’t just referring to scrunchies and graphic tees. Tie-dye was next in line. Take a leaf out of Caro Daur’s book and style your artsy boiler suit with stiletto boots and a see-through bag. In this one, you don’t need to worry about spilling your wine – no one will notice. Bonus.
Snakeskin and neon: name a more iconic duo. Who knew two of our favourite trends of the season could mesh so perfectly together? Balance the look by layering it up with a leather jacket and finish with black ankle boots. Spoiler alert: you'll never want to take this off.
When sporty meets chic
Colour blocking, waterproof nylon material and a loose-fitting shape – aka comfort at its finest? Yes, please. Your tracksuit and hoodie power couple has just been upgraded to a standout boiler suit. Time to hit the catwalk – sorry, we mean run your errands.
In a complicated relationship with bold prints? Thank you, next. A neutral boiler suit is the answer. Opt for a baggy silhouette with maxi pockets (tie it with a belt for a more feminine twist) and bring it to the next level via a baby-blue turtleneck and a lime clutch. Heavenly.
