An Ode to Overalls

Hello my Fashionistas! 

There were jokes about me coming from Indiana and writing a blog about overalls AKA dungarees. One of my friend’s first impression on this was that I was going to be writing about the most stylish way to milk the cows, or even how to line-dance in overalls. There were also jokes about dressing like a gigantic baby. Well, here I am to prove that you don’t have to be a farmer or end up looking like a child while wearing overalls.

Overalls made their way back into the mainstream approximately in 2013. Although these were first released in the 17th century! This transitional piece looks wonderful with any retro striped t-shirt and a pair of hightop converse.

If you didn’t try this trend back then, now is the time!

–Here are the pieces that I pulled together.–

If you liked what I wore, go to the bottom to “shop” the post! 

I actually got this outfit inspiration from one of my favorite actresses: Diane Kruger. She wore black overalls with platform sneakers, and topped off her look with a colorful floral scarf. As mentioned in my last blog post, I’m a HUGE* fan of neckerchiefs. A neck scarf would go well with these overalls as well!

 Photos shot by the overall coolest guy around (get the pun I did there, heh): Ceasar Jones.


Whether you decide to pair the overalls with a baggy sweater crop top, a band tee, or just a plain ‘ol white t-shirt, the possibilities are truly endless. Just have fun and explore and you’ll always be fashionating. 😉

Thanks for reading!
