We all know that fashion is cyclical, and that trends from old become trends new again. However, there is one trend that many thought and even hoped would never find its way back onto the streets. Overalls, originally invented to protect trousers and shirts from work related wear and tear, found their street style popularity in the 90s. Pop stars, models, and angsty teens alike wore the cover-all garments in a variety of colors, oversized, with cropped tops, and the really cool kids, with one strap hanging.
Thankfully the resurgence of this work wear to street wear trend has come with some dramatic and stylish updates! And in case you don’t believe me, here is a lovely picture of one of my favorite bloggers, Bonnie Barton from Flashes of Style proving just how, dare I say, chic they can be.
Our Overall (wink) Picks:
This Viva Vena! pair adds a feminine element with lightweight denim and a cute bow at the waist.
La Garçonne, $385
Étoile Isabel Marant puts a Parisian chic twist on these short overalls. I think a floral print or striped shirt would look just wonderful paired with this pair.
Free People, $148
The go-to store for all music festival attendees, Free People has designed the perfect pair of overalls for this month’s Coachella festivities. They’ve even updated the usually oversized silhouette making this pair of distressed wash overalls of the skinny variety.
If you love Bonnie’s Topshop dress you’ll love this denim overalls dress from the British fashion powerhouse—a fun addition to your spring dress wardrobe.
