Overalls are Back & Better than Ever! How to Style the 90s Favorite

Posted Friday March 21, 2014 8:46 AM GMT

Talk about a sartorial blast from the past! Overalls, a childhood staple, have made a serious comeback — and a grownup one at that!

Their style resurgence has reintroduced traditional denim options, as well as edgy leather, and playful printed varieties as well.

Feeling like you need a little refresher course on how to wear the bottoms? Read on to discover four fashionable ways you can rock the duds this season.

Edgy: If you’re searching for an edgy outfit, then slip into some leather! The luxe textile instantly glams up anything — yes, even overalls. To amp up your sex appeal, wear a crop top underneath to show a little skin. Complete your look with strappy heels and you’re ready for a night on the town!

Glamour Girl: A blazer is our go-to piece when putting together a look we want to breathe sophistication. Whether it’s fitted, loose or a boyfriend silhouette, it immediately pulls an entire ensemble together with ease — something we crave from staple pieces. For an ultra-glam look, keep your threads simple and make a statement with a bold necklace and some funky heels.

Casual Chic: Learning how to maintain a balance between laid-back and chic can be tough, but we know you’re up for the challenge. When using overalls to nab this type of appearance, opt for something you know boasts comfort — a sweatshirt. To ensure you achieve trendiness, make sure your top is printed or rocks a witty slogan/statement, as both are sure-fire signs of a true stylista!

Boyish Behavior: For a look inspired by the guys, be sure to keep things simple: We’re talking by way of flannel or chambray. If you go the last route, be sure to wear one saturated in a different wash than your overalls — dark pants, light top and vice versa. Top off your getup with some comfy Converse sneakers and you’ve nailed a look your man will be jealous of!
