Trend How-To: Overalls

Ladies, dig deep into your closet to find your 90’s overalls because this comfy and playful trend is back! Spotted out on the streets and on the runway – leather, denim and khaki overalls are making a statement this season. Style queen Alexa Chung isn’t afraid to embrace her denim dungarees, wearing her favourite pair season after season.

While Phillip Lim’s amazing $1945 black leather overalls keep most of us in wishful thinking – there are lots of similar styles out there that are chic and affordable. Especially now that it’s coming into the cooler months, overalls are a perfect way to add layers to your outfit, and can easily be dressed up or down.

There are a few tips to consider when styling overalls for this season. Stick to wearing a buttoned shirt or a tight shirt underneath; stripes and polka dots in particular work well. Then finish it off with a clutch, boots and a cute hat for a simple but stylish, casual look.

    I don’t think overalls are flattering at all. Even on a size 8!
