THE TRUTH ABOUT OVERALLS // FIRST KISS


Overalls have been in existence for decades and according to my research online, they have been popular since the 1700s. They are back and trending this season but how many do dare to wear. I wore overalls as a kid and then, it was cool. It reigned and faded.

And it stayed faded until lately....

I decided to get a pair and i was excited to style it with only one thought in mind- Make it my own. I paired it with a lacy fitted top  because the overalls were a bit loose fitting and  for obvious reasons- some air. It has been in the hottest of hot lately, but not complaining. The lace top was an immediate choice also, to give it a more feminine look.

I think the reason why most people run away from overalls is probably because of the whole concept of it all. I may be wrong.


In my opinion, overalls exhume quirkiness and that is definitely a good thing because it stirs up curiosity in others. Which means you will be remembered for that quirky chic look..... for a long time. Points!

Yes, yes, yes! It is so true. I had tried it with so many different tops and it they all worked so well with it. I just decided to settle for the lace. Thanks a lot.

I finally gave in and got a pair, too - I agree, they're quirky-cool. Love how you styled them here! A lace top can off-set any of the "kid"ness associated with overalls for a more grown-up, fashion look.

Louise O Reilly said...

Really cute look. I like how you styled it really my kind of style
