I find it very impressive when I see someone pull off overalls. I always wanted to have the guts to purchase some but was always scared to. When I noticed this Fashionista walking in the streets of Guangzhou, she immediately captured my attention.
Today, denim overalls are somewhat popular. However, this Fashionista went the extra mile and wore some black and white polka-dot overalls. She stuck with the black and white theme and wore some platform Converse sneakers. I noticed that platform Converse sneakers are very popular in China and have been popular since my very first visit three years ago. Personally, I have never seen shoes like that in the United States or Canada. It is interesting to see the different fashion trends across the globe.
While having such a funky outfit, this Fashionista added some class to her look. Her gold bangles, a necklace and Chanel earrings pull the outfit together, giving the perfect balance between class and funk.
As for the pattern, polka-dots can often be overwhelming. In order to neutralize the dots, this Fashionista wore a plain black T-shirt underneath the overalls. If she were to add more pattern to her outfit, the uniqueness of the overalls would be lost.
Overalls are comfortable and fun. Seeing this Fashionista rock her overalls, I think I might go ahead and purchase some. It will definitely make me stand out in the streets as not many people wear overalls in China. Pushing away from your comfort zone can be a good thing. If you don’t try something new then you may miss out on your favorite fashion trend of all.
