overalls, all grown up.

overalls, all grown up.

03/12/2014 45 Comments

Coveralls, bibs, dungarees; whatever you call ’em, you probably either love ’em or hate ’em. I’m in the overall enthusiast camp; probably because I grew up in the 90’s and spent most of my childhood buckled up in their comfy, practical awesomeness.

This spring, a great pair of stylish grown-lady coveralls is on my wish list. I think they’d be perfect for running around the flower shop with cute sneakers and a tee, or on girls night with a black crop top — just a peek of skin on the sides — and simple heels. I’m looking for a slimmer fit in dark denim, like these Black Orchid Skinny Overalls or the Current Elliot Ranch Hand Overalls.

Of course, I’m hoping to find something much more budget friendly. I’ll keep you posted on that quest.

These ladies know how to make overalls appropriate beyond the playground (from left to right): Alexa Chung’s airport style; Street style in stilettos and a sleek coat; Elaine Welteroth in black overalls and chambray; Tuula Vintage in a simple striped tee; Where Did U Get That in a white tank and statement necklace; Crop top perfection; Tuula Vintage again in a jeweled tee; Alexa Chung again in a printed button-down; and Atlantic-Pacific in Current Elliot.

You can find more of my style inspiration on Pinterest!

    Overalls! This is a true throwback that is suddenly resurfacing the fashion industry. Even though allot of grown-ups are now wearing them, it looks just as trendy as any other piece of clothing! This is a really great post!

    Overall shorts are better, crop top underneath and some bright lipstick will get rid of the fact they are not the most feminine item.

  • oohloula 03/13/2014 at 6:47 am

    Trying to work up the courage to buy something like these. Just don’t think my body proportions are right for it though. I have such long legs but a short torso I’m worried it would just accentuate that!

    But great post!

  • Leeja 03/12/2014 at 7:52 pm

    When*
    Also seriously keep us posted when something cheaper and fashionable comes around. Until then you’ll find me digging through the denim at goodwill!

    • keiralennox 03/12/2014 at 8:28 pm

      Thrift stores are probably an excellent option for finding a great pair! A couple of other commenters mentioned vintage overalls, which just sound amazing.

      • Leeja 03/12/2014 at 9:55 pm

        Omg I bet they would be so broken in and lovely! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled, thanks!

  • Leeja 03/12/2014 at 7:51 pm

    I’m so glad you posted this. I love it was functional clothing becomes stylish again! Definitely getting a pair for my spring wardrobe! (if spring ever gets here, that is! :)

  • annie'sbeauty... 03/12/2014 at 5:55 pm

    I love overalls! Everyone else tell me I look like geek wearing them! But I know they are just jalous! 😋😁✌️

  • Megan Hale 03/12/2014 at 4:44 pm

    I love denim overalls! I recently bought a pair of short denim overalls. I can’t wait to rock them!! 90’s ALL THE WAY!!

  • Oyin 03/12/2014 at 3:54 pm

    The best line ever! “buckled up in their comfy, practical awesomeness” I love it! and it’s so so true! I am a big lover of practical and functional fashion styles. It should be stylish and comfortable allowing you actually enjoy the outfit. Really like outfit no5. Hello summer anyone! :)

  • violetcorniun 03/12/2014 at 3:46 pm

    Wait, what?!? Overalls are back in fashion? That’s possibly the best news I’ve heard today! (Keep in mind the day’s not over yet though.) I’m going to have to get right on that. I loved wearing overalls when I was a teen!

  • vestitini 03/12/2014 at 2:31 pm

    I love this moodboard

  • UF Fashion Files 03/12/2014 at 2:26 pm

    Cute!! Now I want a pair of overalls!

  • Melanie 03/12/2014 at 2:06 pm

    Looks like I’m one of the few in the “hate em” camp. I saw a picture of Miranda Kerr wearing overalls the other day and felt a sense of dread creep up and though, “oh, god, no. Why are these coming back?” Haha

  • ellastern 03/12/2014 at 1:54 pm

    They look absolutely amazing! Kind of bringing the comfy and the fashionable look all in one back together! Recently bought one in Zara , they have loads right now in many different styles, so anyone who’s planning to get back to old school again – check out Zara :)

  • Carmel Brown 03/12/2014 at 12:39 pm

    I have several pairs of vintage overalls in my collection. I’m thrilled that they are coming back! I love anything that has several pockets, I guess I’m secretly a tiny items hoarder. :)

    • keiralennox 03/12/2014 at 8:26 pm

      “tiny items hoarder” made me giggle :)

    Yes yes yes! Love it. Do you think hey would suit pear shapes?

    • keiralennox 03/12/2014 at 8:26 pm

      I sure hope so! I’m a petite pear myself. I think a slim straight leg will work best.
