HOW ASOSERS DO BOILER SUITS

By Eleanor Dunne, 1 April 2019

Back in vogue for the past few years, the boiler suit, aka your comfy, versatile, all-in-one outfit solution, is sticking around for this season. Yes, the Ghostbusters movie remake may not be out till 2020, but their outfit of choice remains high on the sartorial agenda for SS19. It’s a work-to-weekend go-to for our ASOSers, and last week we nabbed four of them to show us how they’re wearing the plumber-influenced trend now. Tool kits at the ready...

Social Media Assistant Beth has gone for a kinda fem spin on the boiler suit, opting for one in lush fuschia, with a cinched waist and some dreamy balloon sleeves. It’s still all about utility, though, and the zip-up front and double pockets ensure its still got those handy(wo)man feels. This one is a big statement in itself, so low-key trainers are the ideal partner. Or, try Perspex heels for a more glam look for a BNO.

Carhartt was originally a workers' overall manufacturer in the 1800s so we couldn’t leave them out of a boiler-suit round-up. Here, Junior Copywriter Titi rocks the brand's super-relaxed black number with some fresh sneakers, resulting in the perfect weekend look – especially if said weekend involves putting together your new Ikea furniture.

The boiler suit and its jumpsuit cousin are united in Junior Creative Katie’s minty look by Weekend. Pockets bring the utility vibes, while a tie at the waist makes it more on the jumpsuit spectrum of things. However you classify it, paired with some skater-style checkerboard Vans, this is a fresh AF 'fit.

If you're wary of looking looking too much like your local mechanic, try a boiler suit in a summery print – like Junior Stylist Coco here. This one’s short sleeves make it a great option for warmer weather, and, even better, it's made from organic cotton grown with less water and no pesticides. The addition of a white roll-neck, some gold jewellery and orange sneakers make this outfit fit for... well, a fashion stylist.
