Workwear-Inspired Style: How to Style Utility Coveralls
The launch of the newest coverall style came from 60s workwear inspiration. The Guide Coverall is one of the more bold clothing pieces we’ve done thus far. This head-turning, eye-catching one-piece warrants attention followed closely by compliments.
But what makes a great one-piece coverall? Is it the fabric, the details, the pockets, or something else?
We’re diving into the details of the women’s utility coverall to highlight some of our favorite features and how you can style this one-piece wonder this season and beyond.
Pockets, duh! But also, is workwear-inspired style even possible if you can’t carry along four different things you don’t need? Whether it’s a wallet, chapstick, dog leash, kid snacks, or a wrench, the pockets were a must-have for this style and a necessary ingredient for utility coveralls that can go the distance.
"It’s so comfortable I could wear it every day! Easy to dress up and down."
An intentional choice not to have buttons all the way up to the collar was a tough decision to make. In the end, the v-neck and collar tapering give the rest of the body a little more dimension, shape, and offer just the right amount of skin to round out the full-body piece. What we weren’t expecting is how incredible this item looks layered up with a turtleneck, under a v-neck cardigan, or with a stylish necklace!
"This is my first pair of coveralls and I am completely obsessed!"
The waist-cinching was another challenge when it came to designing the utility coveralls you’ve come to know and love. Normally, we stick to styles that are roomier - known for the boxy fit in our sweaters, coats, and flannels - but we wanted to work in some waist cinching that would both improve the style but also the functionality of the piece as well. With the optional secondary cinch button on each side, you can choose how you want to show off this style. Button one more on each side for a more fitted look or leave it as is for a comfortable, roomy feel.
"These coveralls are better than I could have expected. They fit beautifully and are fantastic quality."
The final detail is the cropped leg opening. Through a few production rounds, these went from too long to too short to just right and we’re so pleased with the results and how our community has taken advantage of this cropped leg look. Styling gets easier when you’re not fighting to hide, tuck or roll fabric and these utility coveralls pair well with almost any shoe, sock, boot, combo you could think of!
"In terms of color, quality, comfort and style it's a 10/10!"
