Yes, we’re all over it, as in can’t stop thinking about overalls, won’t stop thinking about overalls. Today’s denim jumpsuits are not your 8th grade go-tos. Yes, your 8th grade white platform sneakers happen to be back on trend in a similar silhouette, but the overalls we’re scouting and drooling over today have taken on a totally different shape than the ones stuffed into a rolling plastic container under your bed or in your garage.
There are two distinct ways we’ll be wearing overalls this season. We’re taking inspiration from Taylor Swift and Blake Lively for slim-fitting, almost curve-hugging, black pairs. We’re also taking cues from Cara Delevingne for off-duty model colored shortalls, worn with just one strap buckled, of course. We love the way Cressida Bonas trumpeted the all-white monochromatic trend last summer with white overalls cuffed at the ankle and low top white sneakers. Lily Aldridge slayed any doubts we had when she rocked overalls this past April in the coolest, most on-trend 70s way we could imagine—red lips, middle part, boatneck tee and all.
So you see the only part of overalls destined for the donation pile are the wide legs of yesteryear. Try a pair of slim-legged tapered black or white overalls, keep the rest of your look minimal with a cropped ribbed tee or crisp white three-quarter sleeve, pair with throwback sneakers or mod black heeled ankle boots, and watch the resurrection of one of our wardrobe’s most beloved staples begin.
