OVERALLS ARE STILL IN FOR SPRING 2016
This fashion trend is super cute, comfy and the perfect daytime outfit. Another benefit to this trend is that it is so effortless. I can't remember the last time I wore overalls (or as i like to call them Dungarees), and I'm liking the more updated overalls in a more slim cut than what I had back in the day. Overalls are a very specific trend that holds an array of (often strong) opinions. One of the most controversial aspects of overalls is found within the styling. It’s easy for overalls to go wrong, whether they’re ill-fitting, farmer brown look, or childlike. Yet somehow bloggers and fashion innovators alike seem to constantly pull off the look.
One of the easiest ways to wear the trend is to keep it simple! Go for dark, black denim wash — they can be paired with pretty much anything! Keeping the summer season in mind, pairing the overalls with a simple white t-shirt and sandals is a great go-to. Make sure the overalls have a tapered leg, almost like a skinny jean. This allows for a sleek and simple look.
For some people, overalls just look and feel too much. For a less constricting feel, as well as a more subtle statement, try a pair of cut-off overalls (or shortalls). Cut-off overalls look great with a thin and fitted turtleneck, or a high neck tank.
There are so many varieties of overalls. From linen to jersey to corduroy, there are tons of alternative fabric options that may suit you better than denim. You’d be surprised as to how many overall variations you can find.
Sometimes the best way to embrace a tricky trend is by going all out. One of my favourite overall styles are wide leg or flared fit. Look for a dark blue denim wash, and try pairing them with a fitted striped t-shirt. Remember to accessorise and style minimally, as the flare already provides a wow factor. This is a look that is guaranteed to turn some heads!
A simple and fun way to rock overalls is through accessorising. After you find the best fit and style, try playing with interesting jewellery, like statement necklaces or chokers. While your main focus might be on what goes underneath your overalls, think again. Overalls can be styled nicely with jackets and coats.
