STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hillbilly Haute

I remember throwing out my old pair of hand-me-down overalls when I was 13, and now I really wish I hadn’t. Knocking out rompers and taking their place are overalls, and the options are thankfully endless. Overalls have had their time in the place of farmers and rednecks, but no longer do only people who bail hay rock these one piece beauties. They have made their way mainstream—for the people who dare.

This Fashionista has shown how overalls can be made into hangout wear and even into festival wear. These overalls from Abercrombie & Fitch are a nice light wash, which keeps them looking casual and worn in for a more vintage look. The key to overalls is choose ones that don’t look too stiff, since they are usually such a hard denim it can be hard to get the fit just right. This Fashionista has managed to achieve the effortlessly loose look that gives not only style but comfortability. In the heat of the summer wearing as little clothes as possible is almost a must to beat the burning rays. She got creative and actually paired a bathing suit top from Pacsun in a soft fabric and detailed pattern to allow for as much air ventilation as possible. The colors and pattern to this top add dimension and flare to the outfit giving it more than just a basic feel. By adding in her key to her dormitory this Fashionista has accessorized and kept practicality in mind. Overalls are a great piece of clothing to own because of their versatility: the can go with long sleeves, tank tops, sweaters and so much more. They can be difficult to maneuver at first, but once you find a perfect pair you’ll be inseparable.
