I Finally Get Why People Over The Age Of 10 Wear Overalls--And I Want A Pair

Overalls started their post-90’s comeback tour around 2012. Designers like Phillip Lim and Rebecca Minkoff showed the trend for Spring 2013, and it soon made its way onto street style blogs and into stores. But I wasn’t full convinced. I mean, how could I? The last memories I have of wearing a denim onesie are from elementary school. Sure, some of my favorite 90’s icons could pull-off the look, like Alex Mack and Michelle Tanner, but they were just kids when I looked to them for fashion advice, and so was I. Can I really wear overalls at 22 years old?

Well, three seasons and countless farmer jokes later–I’ve finally given in. I now want a pair of overalls. I’m actually so excited about it, and I just can’t hide it (see what I did there, @SavedByTheBellFans). So that’s why I had to share WHY with you.

1. The pictures above. Celebrities like Alexa Chung, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rihanna just make overalls look so.damn.cool. And that 4th picture is a street style snap of model Hanneli Mustaparta from last fashion week. Celebs and street style stars wear ’em, so I wanna wear ’em.

2. The fit. But you say these guys have been wearing overalls for years now…and you’re right. However, the fit of these particular 4 styles is so spot on. You need ones that are skinny jean tight (but not super skinny jean tight) in the leg, and slightly slouchier on top. You should be able to comfortably fit an arm through the top, but not a plate. Or, take a cue from badgal RiRi and wear an all-over loose pair. Your bottoms should never be looser than your top. It’s either equal or tighter on bottom.

3. The look. Overalls aren’t just for the under 10 set anymore. Notice how Alexa pairs hers with a BURBERRY jacket (talk about sophisticated) and Hanneli is wearing hers with heels. See, adults can make the right pair look mature.

So now that you’re convinced (hopefully), click the slideshow to see the best of the best overalls out there to shop now. I know I’m getting a pair, or two, or three…
