On Our Radar: Overalls

Overalls have been coming in and out of style for the last 40 years. The ‘90s staple originally popped up in the seventies and is once again appearing in designer lookbooks and on retro-loving fashionistas. One way or the other, most people seem to feel strongly about the newest denim trend—and styled correctly, it’s a look we can’t get enough of! With a little patience, anyone can find a pair that looks fabulous. Wear your denim with stylish, modern accessories (think: a polished clutch or chic boots) for an eclectic and not-at-all-outdated ensemble!

Clockwise from top left:

1. Try cuffing a relaxed pair of overalls with a black and white striped shirt for a preppy meets trendy take. (image)
2. Take a cue from Leandra—throw on a tailored blazer for a polished look. (image)
3. A heather grey tee and ankle booties give this outfit a relaxed feel. (image)
4.  A simple black top and a colorful pair of flats = the perfect weekend look. (image)
5. Give a billowy blouse a try with a pair of short overalls—we can’t wait to try this one! (image)

    Ooo I don’t know. I think this is a trend that should be left in the 80’s and 90’s.Maybe it’s just not my thing!

    Not my thing either. I get really bad flashbacks to the eighties – and have you lived through those once, you don’t want to go back! Also, being tall, they never fit me properly. The one-strap-off trend of the nineties never did anything for me either. :o)

    I hope this trend doesn’t take off! I’m still traumatized from 6th grade when I wore overalls everyday. Please don’t bring back the early 90s!!!

  • No. Just No.
