Seven of the best boilersuits for spring

by Marie Kelly
19th Mar 2019

The utility trend is strong for spring, and if you want to nail it in one easy-to-wear piece, then a boilersuit is the thing for you. Boilersuits have been made wildly popular this season not just by designers like Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant but by street style stars, who’ve embraced the all-in-ones with fervor.

When choosing a boilersuit for spring, select something in a soft, moveable material as this will make it easier to pull the boilersuit on and off (I’m thinking of bathroom trips here). Rigid denim is not your friend in this scenario. Khaki is my favourite utilitarian shade as the current penchant for beige will leave me and my pale skin looking, well, beige. There are some great boilersuit options in inky blue hues too for others who like to wear shades with more depth in spring/summer. Whatever your style, here are seven boilersuits perfect for spring.

Marrying a girlish colour such as pink with a masculine silhouette always looks cool.

Choose a belted boilersuit if you want a more refined silhouette.

Chic wide legs give this boilersuit a more sophisticated look.

This River Island piece has an elasticated waistband at the back for a more fitted shape.

I love how this piece has been styled. A retro lime polo-neck and patent boots look unexpected and modern paired with a utilitarian boilersuit.

Made from organic cotton, this boilersuit will offer a really comfortable fit.

This piece by Cos looks smart enough to wear to the office, which gives the utility trend a cool new twist.
