Make way for the return of the overalls. They’re part of the nineties fashion that are making a comeback to include the Dr. Martens boots, flannel shirts and floral babydoll blouses.
The overalls, for some of you who still remember, used to be closely associated with working people doing manual labor in homes and offices such as painters and carpenters. Eventually, though, they became a fashion statement and now, they’re back.
This outfit comes in various styles – long or short, skirt type, colored, denim and corduroy among others. Most of what was en vogue in the past were the loose and baggy types.
Wearing the overalls can be done in different ways as well. Some even prefer to leave one strap unbuckled for a stylish effect.
Today, designers have come up with their own version of the overalls. The forecast is that this is going to be part of the spring trends as brands such as Moschino, Isabel Marant and MM6 by Maison Martin Margielao already have this in their collections. Major jeans manufacturers such as Guess, Diesel, Joe’s Jeans, Free People and American Apparel have come up with their own as well.
The latest overalls are sexier (body hugging) and although the denim material is still very popular, variations are available including those made from leather. As to the right way to wear it, there are no rules. One can use a tube, a sleeveless shirt, a collared shirt or a spaghetti strapped top underneath. Whatever makes you comfortable is most important.
Surprisingly, many female celebrities don’t mind wearing this denim jumpsuit at all. In fact, many of them like it and some still wear it when they feel like it.
How about you? Are you up to the challenge of wearing the overalls again?
