^ That's like... a denim swimsuit

I wish overalls had stayed in the 90s.

oh laika...
i love the first two images you posted!

even though you couldn't pay me to wear denim overalls, those do look super...
though i do think those girls would make anything look good...



i don't know about the whole bib thing for me...
but i really like it whenever yohji does them in gabardine and the like...
they are usually so super baggy and tailored and just tres chic...
j'adore

Overalls are one thing that never left my wardrobe since I started wearing them in the 90s. I love them! I know they're not high fashion, but I don't think they're meant to be. I think they look best styled simply, not with high heels or any overly contrasting piece.

Here's a reader slideshow from the NYT. I like the overall pinafore in the girl from San Francisco best. I think she must have cut off a floor-length skirt to make it cooler. I've seen the kind before in thrift stores, but it always looked too Mormonish with the long skirt so I passed them over.

that first image really reminded me of you, so i'm glad you like it!
i figured you wouldn't do it with denim though...

i wouldn't either...i am completely on board with the wool gab.
it just drapes so beautifully.

in college i had an amazing pair of deep rust-colored overalls in a sort of velveteen fabric. i wore them with a black turtleneck and it really did look chic. wish i still had those...

I like this more geometric take on overalls - my only complaint being that I'd prefer it in solid white.

I've been trying on soo many different types of overalls lately, I was close to buying some indigo loose gap ones and some leather Zara ones. But they just weren't right. I think as much as I like some of them on some people, I feel too much like a hipster in them.. At least the ones I've tried so far.

I just love overalls, so I love it whenever they come back. I, however, look hideous in them and so, my sad overalls cycle starts : (
