BOILER SUIT TREND 2020 – HOUSE OF MUCHA

Good morning everyone today’s attire is based around this gorgeous boiler suit. This geometric number that I’m wearing was kindly gifted to me and I am totally in love with it. It is one of the easiest piece of garment to style, maybe thats way it is so popular, a comfortable outfit that can be put together in minutes with minimal thought or effort.

So here is a little insight into the boiler suit which dates back to 1939 when Italian Designer Elsa Schiaparelli debuted it in her Spring/Summer collection. The inspiration came from the air raids during the war, the boiler suits had huge pockets so women would be able to pack all that was necessary to leave their homes in a hurry or to go on duty without a bag. So a few years later the iconic picture of Rosie the Riveter appeared wearing the infamous polka-dot hanker chief and a bright blue boiler suit. This was part of the governments campaign to recruit more women into the workforce.

Now for Dior’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, models wore these colourfully dyed ombre and acid wash boiler suits with raffia sun hats. The inspiration was taken from Catherine Dior, (the sister of Christian Dior) who was a keen gardener.

BOILER SUIT

Right lets begin with my boiler suit, like I mentioned earlier it was kindly gifted to me by House Of Mucha. The brand was founded and created by Zimbabwean born Lindiwe Muchaneta shortened to LinDi Mucha. She is the creative director and designer based in Hertfordshire UK. LinDi strongly identifies with her roots in both Zimbabwe and South Africa. Her designs are historically accurate garments made from timeless vintage sewing patterns following her 70’s decade inspired of designs. My boiler suit is bespoke and House Of Mucha produces limited editions of retrospective afro-print garments.

BELT

Moving on and I opted to style my boiler suit here with a wide belt to cinch in my waist. I find that this really amps up my overall look and gives the outfit some oomph! My wide belt is from Zara, and I love the gold buckle which ties in beautifully with the chain of my bag.

BAG

Next and onto my bag which is a few years old now and it happens to be from none other than Marks and Spencer. Yep you read correctly it is from M&S. This cute little crossbody bag has faux pearls on the front flap, a gold chain and a magnetic fold over clasp. A nod to the Gucci small padlock faux pear-embellished studded leather shoulder bag.

FINISHING TOUCHES

As for the finishing touches, first up my shoe of choice are my wedge espadrilles from Aspiga. I absolute love wearing wedges with wide leg trousers, jumpsuits and boiler suits. Secondly I grabbed my white cate-eye sunglasses from Illesteva which gives me that statement worthy vibe I am going for. Finally on my lips I am wearing the shade Feels So Grand in the Retro Matte Lipcolour from M.A.C. This gorgeous red matt lipstick just adds that pop of colour I want and completes my whole look.

 

What do you make of the boiler suit? Are you someone who would wear it? Or will you stay well clear of it? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.

    I’m getting a kick out of the boiler suit coming back into style. I had one of these in the 1986 in teal blue! It didn’t look nearly this good, though. This is a FABULOUS garment, although I feel like the legs are maybe an inch too long? I would like to be able to see the toes of your shoes at least, and I’d be concerned about the hems dragging on the ground.

    Awesome styling. The white sunglasses really pop!
