How to wear a boiler suit

DSC_0219

My favourite post I have ever written on the blog has to be the one where I premiered this boiler suit from Amazon. It all started as a joke but became a) my favourite blog post and b) one of my most appreciated posts on the blog and Instagram. Despite that, I realised I haven't mentioned the boiler suit since nor have I updated everyone on how I have been putting it to use. If you want to see how I have been wearing this out, keep reading.

These photos were taken in Milan, when I fortunately came across a part of the tram line that was being worked on. Although this boiler suit will probably never be used for its intended purposes, I thought it was fitting to shoot it in its natural environment.

On this day, I was walking around the city so I decided to pair it with my Adidas Superstars, like I did in my original post, but added a turtleneck underneath and wore my puffer vest on top for added warmth. Not only was it warm, but it kept me comfortable the entire day. One tip for those who might want to replicate the look: make sure you wear tights or some form of short leggings underneath. I found out quickly that day that the material this is made of was definitely not intended for people to wear straight on their skin (the chafing was real).

    1. Thank you so much! Neither had I but I kept seeing them everywhere online at exhorbitant prices so I decided to just style my own at a much cheaper price!

  3. Love it! Where I live, because the weather is so bad, loads of folk wear boiler suits as standard. Usually for walking their dogs in inclement weather though. ;)

    1. Haha I love that! They are really warm to be honest - would love to wear this in summer with espadrilles but I doubt I would make it through with how warm it is!

  4. Super handy to wear something underneath to avoid chaffing! I've never worn a boiler suit myself.

    1. Thank you so much! I haven't got a pair of dungarees yet but I've been toying with the idea for a while so I might bite the bullet soon!
