Wear Me: Overalls

See what I did there? See?? Overalls. Not just for a 3 ft murderous toddler with a severe case of rage anymore.

Currently trending in tons of different shades, cuts and styles. Overalls are everywhere right now. If you make one purchase this Spring/Summer (LOL and GUFFAW at the one purchase) then ensure it’s a pair of overalls or shortalls.

I purchased a denim overall dress last summer and have been waiting to wear it all winter. Although I style it with sneakers, because it’s a little less fitted than I would like, it’s still easy to wear all summer with either tanks, crops, or light layers and flat shoes in the form of Toms, Vans, or flip flops. If you’re looking for a slimmer, more chic and streamlined fit then your best bet is a full pair with a cropped or ankle length hem.

Check out the rich and infamous showing how it’s done. You might have 1/10th of their bank account but at least you don’t have a coke habit. Just some sweet ass overalls.

Jamie King in denim shortalls. Her Mara Hoffman leopard print topper is a unexpected, but totally wearable piece, and the ballet flats are perfect for shortalls.

Hilary Duff in slightly distressed, yet fitted overalls and a white tank. Again, booties are an unexpected yet flattering choice for a cut like this.

Oh yeah, here we go. SJP making the list twice, and for good reason. These Blank NYC overalls, and the oversize peasant top are so unexpected together. Like Lindsay Lohan and a virgin daiquiri. Oh, and the pumps? Ugh, perfection.

The basic styles are pretty much covered above. If you aren’t a fan of the Scarecrow look then go for something with a slimmer cut. If you’re looking for something comfy, easy to throw on and something your boyfriend might mistake as his – then go for something with a loose fit. Really quite simple.

My favorite look as definitely got to be SJP (above) and Selena’s distressed yet still girlie cut.

Here are some of my picks…

My next purchase is a pair of slim cut, distressed overalls. Something I can either rock a sleek pump or a heel with and switch gears with a pair of Chucks. Black Orchid, Blank NYC and Current/Elliott are definitely my favs. Really – any cut and style will look great if you know how to wear it. Just leave the bikinis for the boardwalk, the Crocs for Goodwill, and the lack of confidence for your fat days.
