Is there any such thing as a perfect boiler suit? I guess there is. I’ve see the perfect boiler suit on the fashion goddess and my very own fashion icon Rihanna she seems to get it right with fashion all the time. I can’t say the same for myself as my boiler suit is all the reasons you shouldn’t bother searching out for one.
If you think I thrifted this, then your mind got you. In all the tall girl problems in the universe, this is the worst. Getting pants that are your length is a nightmare for every tall person. Igbo traders or the over active retailer aren’t even helping with this especially if you’re unwilling like me to try out every piece of clothing shoved in your face. I’ve fallen for their many tricks before but I didn’t know they would totally get me on this one.
I kinda did a little research on a boiler suit and this is what I came up with. According to wikipedia, A boilersuit is a one-piece garment with full-length sleeves and legs like a jumpsuit, but usually less tight-fitting. Its main feature is that it has no gap between jacket and trousers or between lapels, and no loose jacket tails. It often has a long thin pocket down the outside of the right thigh to hold long tools. It usually has a front fastening extending the whole length of the front of the body up to the throat, with no lapels. It may be fastened with buttons, a zip, velcro, or snap fasteners.
Boiler suits are cute and all till you stand naked in the bathroom
With this definition, my boiler suit is clearly a failure in boiler suit history. Well, a fashion girl has to make do when the time comes so that’s exactly what I did with this thrifted boiler suit. I styled with court shoes from atmosphere and the black purse which was also thrifted. I thought about switching the heels to super comfortable sneakers but I thought since mine is already a failure, it can as well not pass any test.
How would you have styled this boiler suit better than mine?
Also share if you’ve ever had any award experience with the boiler suit.
