Style Advice of the Week

FASHION ALERT: Overalls are back, and they are more fabulous than ever. Yes, its true, the easy ‘90s staple that we all know and love has made quite the comeback. I’m sure we can all agree: it is not every day you stumble upon a fierce Fashionista sauntering through campus rocking a trendy pair of overalls. Want to know a secret? This Fashionista found them in her own mother’s closet!  Although we all aren’t lucky enough to magically find a pair in our house, it is so easy to DIY any old pair of overalls you can get your hands on. Once you find the pair of your dreams, take a look at this Fashionista to learn how to style them up.

Make a bold statement by taking some inspiration from this Fashionista’s genius style. Her bold red blouse transforms her casual denim overalls into a look that is perfect for any fun occasion. Whether it be taking her last final or going out to celebrate after it is finished, she is guaranteed to turn heads and grab every passerby’s attention with her chic outfit. She adds a modern twist to her worn-in overalls by rolling up the edges of her shorts, which serves as an easy fix for any vintage pair of shorts.

With overalls, accessorizing is key. You want to make a fashion statement, not look like you popped straight out of a ‘90s sitcom. This Fashionista makes all of the right moves by wearing simple gold jewelry and a red lip. Her cork-inspired oversized clutch is the definition of chic and her red and leopard print cut-out sandals are absolutely out-of-this-world. By mixing different textures and prints with her choice of accessories, this Fashionista creates a unique ensemble that is mesmerizing from head-to-toe.

If you are convinced that overalls are simply too much of a throwback for you to tackle, don’t fret. There are so many overall-inspired trends taking over the retail scene. Whether it be apron dresses, overall dresses or suspender skirts or shorts, there is an option out there to please every Fashionista. Celebrities, like Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens, who double as fashion icons of mine, have already embraced the trend. So, what’s holding you back?

Hope your stylish summer is filled with all things fabulous!
