We all know that denim is a staple piece that we can never be tired of and always have in our closets. But instead of the original jeans and jean jackets, what can we do to take it to the next level? How about denim overalls! Overalls have made a statement and have become a staple in today’s fashion world. With the many cookouts and gatherings coming up this summer, it is sure to be a fashion hit. Think you’re ready to take on this tend?

Now, overalls have been on-trend for a while now, at least since the ’80s and ’90s. In those eras, overalls were heavily used in music videos and fashion campaigns. Overalls were huge when they first came out, and I mean the size was huge. They were not the most flattering, and they were very baggy, creating no shape. But with the lack of shape, they did have some cool textures and prints to make them funky.

Today’s overalls now have definition and shape to them and come in many different styles. They come in light or dark washes, or they even come flared or as skinny jeans. But how can we take this vintage staple and turn it into a modern, fashionable statement? This Fashionista sure knew how. She paired her affordable Old Navy overalls with a two-toned T-shirt, boat shoes and added more of a statement with a bow necklace. She even made a small detail by cuffing the bottom of her pants to accentuate her sneakers, making it even more casual for this summer.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My advice for overalls is to pick a pair that is not only affordable but comfortable enough to wear over and over again, especially through the many seasons.”
