For the past year, I’ve spent cold-weather months living in a burgundy boiler suit I bought on a whim in 2018, mostly because it a) let me hit snooze a few more times and b) made me feel all sorts of confident. (My mother’s reaction: “I had that same boiler suit in 1976!”) Boiler suits have gone in an out of style since then, but they’re back in a major way right now. Not only do they make getting dressed easy, they also look great with practical winter footwear, like Chelsea boots and sneakers. Whether you already have a boiler suit (or three) in your closet or you’re thinking about joining the club, you’ll be in chic company: both celebs and street-style stars have been spotted out in boiler suits lately. Scroll down to see our favorites.
You don’t need to limit your boiler suit style to chunky footwear: These dainty lace-up boots bring balance to the utilitarian outfit, while the belt pulls it all together.
A boiler suit in a fabric with a funky finish lends itself to texture plays. An ultra-fluffy jacket and scarf and a tweedy handbag are the perfect foils for this high-shine ’suit.
Again, with the texture: This ruddy brown leather boiler suit has major moto vibes. Because both ’suit and the boots are shiny, they play nicely together.
This boiler suit—like many modern takes—is cast in muted khaki, a nod to its utilitarian heritage. But Rainbow Brite buttons, a turtleneck underneath, and a bright puffer on top remind you that this ’suit wants nothing to do with the business end of a greasy rag.
Keep a bold fabric in the spotlight with minimalist accessories. Here, white sneakers and a matching bag anchor a tie-dye boiler suit without weighing it down.
Pair your standard khaki boiler suit with high-heeled boots and a bold clutch for a look that says, “I get shit done, but I’m also fancy.”
