Taa-daahh!!! ‘I’m back and I’m here to stay‘ said the denim overall in 2014 summer.
So what happens when a 90’s clothing hit meets the 90’s comeback fashion trends?
We end up with the most brilliant reinvention and a massive imagination and fashion creativity boom. Today’s topic: Denim Overalls.

Streets are actually packed with great denim overalls and style bloggers are doing this look like crazy
There’s the Long Denim Overalls which can be oversized, tight (think structured smart jumpsuit), 70’s style, with fuller upper part (covering up a great deal of your top for ex.) or more cut-out for you to show off your tank top, bandeau or those tight abs.

The Short Denim Overall is the girly cute style that can be treated like a dress: if it’s loose and relaxed it’ll look amazing with a tight top, loads of bling and shades. If it’s tight you might want to balance it with more understated accessories.

Both styles look great and the choice of denim color/texture/fabric is limitless. in this light wash denim overalls with classic pumps. Perfect.

How to wear Denim Overalls? I think the easiest way to nail the D.O. (read denim overalls) look is to treat them like dresses, except for the part that you have to wear a top underneath. Which is actually not too bad, just because more layering will add more chicness or that hipster vibe to your outfit.

So D.O. are a heaven to perfect your layering. I love the plain white tee look or the bandeau look underneath a vintage loose D.O. with a statement necklace, a golden watch, a big colored clutch, wayfarer shades and heels.Tip: it looks even better if you roll up your denim trousers, or leave one strap unbuttoned. For a more sophisticated look add a leather jacket on top or do the urban chic & glam version of the D.O.: hot heels, red nails & lips, baseball cap and loads of bling. Another way to do it is to keep it classy: heels/ballet pumps or flat sandals & a white shirt or blazer on top. Sort of Friday office outfit. Bottom line is you can spice up the look, tone it down, keep it basic or go over the top on hipster style – it’s gonna look good either way. Heels make it look urban and hot, sneakers make it laid back and cool, ankle boots give it a rocknroll style, gladiator sandals are boho-chic.

You can’t go wrong with Denim Overalls. I get that now. :) Better late than never right?
