It's been a while since our last Oh Joy! Dressing the Team, but we're back with one of this season's most trendy pieces...boiler suits! Whether you love them or haven't tried them yet, here's how each member of the Oh Joy! team styled one and made it their own...
Angie, our Visual and Product Designer, rocks this pink coverall like no other. She paired it with fun glitter earrings and sneakers for a comfortable and super cool look. "I love that as a single piece/jumpsuit, it simplifies my morning "what to wear?!" decisions. It's my easy-peasy, minimal, millennial, uniform. The material is buttery soft, the pink is playful, and the fit is structured and extra comfortable. Bonus feature: the zip up front makes it very nursing/pumping friendly. It is definitely a wardrobe staple for me."
Julia, our Creative Content Producer & Stylist, dressed it up with pink heels and a fun yellow bandeau to accent the neutral piece. "With this boiler suit, I had fun adding a bralette underneath to give it a different look than your typical button-up boiler suit. I did a french cuff on the legs as well to make it more tapered at the leg. I don’t normally wear shades of brown like this, but I love the color because it felt really warm!"
Courtney, my Executive Assistant and New Business Coordinator, is wearing this amazing chartreuse utility jumpsuit. It's such a bright, fun color, and she rocked it with heart-shaped sunglasses, statement hoops, and wedge sandals. "I love boiler suits because they have long sleeves and don't require a sweater when you wear them. As you may or may not know, if you're wearing a sweater over a one-piece (like all of my other jumpsuits), you have to take the sweater off and set it somewhere before stripping out the suit to use the facilities. With a boiler suit, you have the long sleeves already built in so no sweater kerfuffles in the bathroom! I received a TON of compliments when wearing this one, so it made me feel incredible. :)"
Jess, our Creative Content Assistant, is looking glam in this pretty mint boiler suit, glitter earrings, and fun hot pink heels. "I liked this boiler suit because the fabric was surprisingly light and soft, while still having enough structure to look put together. It feels like the perfect transitional spring to summer piece. The color is also really versatile because it pairs just as well with neutrals and whites as is does with bright pops of color, like the hot pink heels I chose."
Nicole, our E-Commerce Coordinator/Buyer, picked a chic denim ensemble and paired it with amazing glitter booties. "I used to LOVE boiler suits, but as a mom and always in a hurry, they're not as practical for me. The "bathroom situation" with a child is less than ideal. However, they definitely do make me feel empowered...it's my rendition of a power suit!"
Traci, our Social Media Coordinator, picked this classic white boiler suit. She paired it with neutral clogs, pink pom-pom earrings, and a bright scarf around the wrist for an extra dose of color. "I definitely love how comfortable they are and how easy they are to wear. It's an entire outfit in one! I like this boiler suit for spring and summer since it has short sleeves and because it's so neutral, you can easily add in colorful accessories."
Joy, that's me! This piece is one of my go-to pieces that serves up instant utilitarian glam (did I just make that up?)! The structure of the fabric gives this piece a nice slimming effect while also being easy to move in. I love dressing it up with heels for a fancy casual vibe or adding flats to get more cozy. I would (and have) worn it pretty much anywhere. I love the bright (yet not too crazy) color!
