Yes or no? This week, on Fashion Friday.
Just like last year, this summer’s hottest trend is a controversial one (remember the drama with Birks?). Not surprisingly, we happen to be pro-overall. Here’s why.
Dressed up or down, overalls will always ensure that you’re the most eye-catching broad in the room. Our favorite outfit for a casual day of errands is the classic short overalls with a striped tee pairing. And for lots of double taps on your #OOTD Instagram post, top it all off with a brimmed hat and a pair of statement sunnies.
For an evening look, swap the denim shorter-alls for a longer black pair and finish with a collared blouse, pointed-toe stilettos, your trusty metallic clutch, and the polished bedhead you’ve been sporting all day.
They’re universally flattering.
Ok, ok. Stay with us. Sure, the baggy, wide-leg, acid-wash overalls from the 90s aren’t exactly made for all body types. But in 2015 style, overalls have gotten a major update in the form of, well, form. The controversial trend is now more figure flattering, with tailored waists and slim legs that actually show off your shape.
They’re so freaking easy.
If you thought a jumpsuit was easy… NEWSFLASH: Overalls are even simpler. Still one piece (you just have to throw a plain tee underneath—easy peasy), you can literally put on a pair of overalls, slip on your shoe of choice and head out the door. But how does that make them easier than a romper, you ask? First, they can be found at pretty much all of your go-to local boutiques. But secondly, you don’t have to completely disrobe when you have to pee—just unbuckle and slip ’em down.
Now that’s what we call an answer to fashion prayers.
