Heck yes they are!
Overalls, particularly denim ones, are being worn by celebrities like Olivia Palermo, Zoe Saldana, Yara Shahidi, and Jourdan Dunn. They’re no longer a childish piece. In fact, they’re quite updated, stylish and incredibly comfortable.
It’s like the 90s have comeback with a bang!
So are you in?
Why You Need A Pair
I know that just being trendy isn’t your focus. Nowadays, you’re more interested in purchasing wardrobe essentials and fashionable items that will help further define your personal style at an affordable cost.
Trust me, I’m there too. That’s why I love overalls.
- They’re budget-friendly. You can find overalls in a range of stores, including department stores like H&M and T.J. Maxx. And don’t forget Goodwill! I actually found the pair I own at a thrift store on a random visit after work!
- They’re versatile. Overalls can be worn during any season and layered with a wide variety of items. They even translate well from day to night. All this means you will definitely get you’re money’s worth.
- Any woman can wear them. That’s right! Whether you’re petite, curvy or have a boyish frame, overalls will work for you!
With that in mind, how should you rock this trend this year?
I thought you’d never ask.
