SheFinds Asks You: Overallsâ€”Hot or Not?
May 22, 2007
When I saw this, I couldn’t believe it. I absolutely SWEAR this was the same overall I was wearing in seventh grade the day I found out that ONLY eighth graders would be allowed to attend the eighth-grade dance at the end of the year, and my world came crashing down around me.
Of course, there are two differences here:
1. Cameron Diaz probably got to go to her eighth-grade dance as a seventh-grader, and
2. When I was in seventh grade, those overalls came down to my knees.
I love the twisted braid detailing on the top of this overall that turns it from OshKosh into ornament, but it’s so short she can’t walk right, and there’s just something a little Farmer Dan about a denim bib on ANYONE, even Cameron. (Nicole Ritchie has also been spotted in them lately–promotion for The Simple Life, or the beginning of a trend?)
What do you think about overalls? Retro-cute or best left in the past? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
And if you dare…here are some styles to try out.
