From vintage Kate to modern day Alexa, the overall has come a long way from it’s original utilitarian roots. In the beginning of the 20th century overalls were worn as a protective garment in factories. And Bib Overalls for countless decades have been worn in rural areas by farmers and railroad workers. In the nineties denim versions became a wide spread unisex fashion trend. Now this denim one piece is back, popping up on style icons as well as ready to wear catwalks. The most popular way to wear this burgeoning trend is with blouses and accessories that are feminine and add sophistication. Overalls are inherently rugged, so it’s best to up the ladylike quotient when styling this piece.

1. Frame Denim Le Garcon Overall $299. Recently I have been leaning toward a slimmer silhouette in my overalls. When I wear this style a bit more fitted, I feel there is less danger of slipping into frumpy territory. A more streamline fit gives the look a sexier edge.

2. Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses $280. Karen Walker’s aesthetic has always been the juxtaposition of opposites- masculine and feminine, elegant and edgy. Making her glasses the perfect accessory for this rugged yet girly look.

3. Zara Asymmetric Embroidered Top $80. There is something about a well worn fitted pair of overalls that is reminiscent of the 70’s. To augment this decade’s bohemian vibe layer a light weight embroidered blouse like this one underneath.

4. Topshop Hopscotch Sandals $35. This look is versatile and can be paired with heels for a night out or flats for everyday. For Spring and Summer I like it with a simple ankle strap sandal. It completes the look with no fuss polish.
