STYLE ADVICE: Bringin' It Back Old School

January 25th, 2017 at 2:00am

Ah, the good old days of kindergarten—coloring books, nap times, and, of course, overalls! I don’t think there’s a person out there that didn’t rock some overalls before entering middle school. This Fashionista takes it back to the younger years by sporting a relaxed, but totally eye-catching look.

The key to any outfit is a piece that makes people stop and stare for a few seconds. These light wash denim overalls do just that. The distressed knees give it a fun flare that takes the look from farmer style to street style in just a glance. Cuffing the pant not only slims the leg, but also gives this outfit some urban charm and makes it less childish and more chic. It’s no secret that dealing with over-stretched skinny jeans and tight waist lines make jeans an enemy sometimes, but denim overalls are a timeless piece that allows for a comfortable, cute, and put together look in a flash.

To keep the focus on the overalls, this Fashionista decided to pair the denim with all-black details. The black ribbed turtleneck not only captures the current trend, but also keeps her warm in cold weather. Remember, being warm in below freezing temperatures is always in style. The pointed toe black leather booties with gold detailing also play into the sweater and the lenses of her Ray-Bans to complete the outfit.

This Fashionista’s nostalgic ensemble took me back to the ease of elementary school days while envying the fun and playful look. Never be afraid to up cycle some old fashion trends to create a desirable outfit!
