Kick Butt (Literally) Like Florence Pugh With These Combat Boots, Bodysuit & Vest

There’s a new heroine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it’s none other than Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova. Making her big debut in the Black Widow, Pugh’s Yelena is unlike any other female superhero/spy we’ve seen with her quirky personality and interesting outfit choices – decisions made by Pugh herself.

So if you’re looking to kick butt just like Yelena, here’s a shopping list that won’t necessarily break the bank.

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes. Yelena isn’t the kind of chick who would strut around in heels. Mainly because she’s all about getting the job done efficiently. She’s a badass who loves being comfortable whilst she’s at it. So whilst Natasha Romanoff flips around in slightly heeled boots, Yelena would go for combat boots that are closer to the ground.

Dr. Martens Vegan 1460 Smooth Black Combat Boot

Starting this list out strong with a pair of combat boots that would last decades. For S$142.51, Dr. Martens’ Vegan 1460 Combat Boots are an investment that will remain stylish for the long run. These boots are one of the comfiest boots when broken in, running will be made easy and your opponent will for sure feel the kick when it hits them.

Available on Amazon.

Motorcycle Combat Boots

Yelena has a pretty sick motorcycle of her own so what better than a pair of Motorcycle Combat Boots to complete your look. This pair of boots are for those who are looking for a more affordable option (S$27.40) and still remain stylish. These boots are also slightly heeled for that added femme fatale look but aren’t too high that it will get in the way of your buttkickery.

Available on Lazada.


What comes after the boots? A vest. Viewers of the latest Black Widow movie will know that Pugh’s Yelena has an affinity for vests. We won’t tell you why but it’s definitely an essential piece to her wardrobe. We’re not saying she’s a style icon, but Natasha did suddenly return in Avengers: Infinity War with a vest on so maybe Yelena is on to something.

There are plenty of outdoor vests out there that come close to Yelena’s vest, you may even find better luck looking in the men’s aisle. Personally, we’ve picked out two that serves it’s purpose and doesn’t take too much out of pocket.

Tohopu Safari Fishing Travel Vest With Pockets

Yeah, fishing vests. We know it’s not exactly Paris Fashion Week ready but it’s definitely Comic-Con ready, cosplay ready and maybe even Halloween ready. This lightweight sleeveless fishing vest costs S$35.97 and features a zipper that you can zip up or down and has 2 adjustable straps on both waist sides so you have the option of wearing it as is like Yelena or tighten it up like Natasha. Killing two birds with one stone, people! This vest also features 16 pockets. You know what they say, a girl can never have too many pockets.

Available on Amazon.

Multi Pocket Vest With Many Pockets For Photographers 


If you’re looking for something that is a little bit sturdier and more utilitarian, try this Photographer vest instead. It’s sleeveless too but features more accents to the vest like silver buttons and obvious pockets that stand out a little bit more. Whilst this vest doesn’t have adjustable waist straps, it nails down the rugged look you would expect from an international assassin. This vest is currently 47% percent off at S$21.30 (original price S$40.50).

Available on Lazada.


Are you really channelling Black Widow if you’re not clad in a bodysuit? It’s the main essence of the whole look. Whether you’re looking to look more like Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova or Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, we’ve got some quick links for you.

Yelena wears a white bodysuit for the most part of the Black Widow movie. It’s a look that is unique to her as her sister often dons a black version of the bodysuit.

The similar looking suit ranges from S$21-S$62 depending on your size. Just remember to add on the vest to make it known that you’re channelling Marvel’s new heroine.
