Denim Overalls – Is This a Trend You’d Try?

True Religion Jaelyn Boyfriend Fit Overalls in Tennessee

I remember having overalls. But I was nine, and we all made some interesting fashion choices when we were younger. Heck, Baby Jaime even tried to pull off double denim… and that does not make it a look that’s okay now.

So that’s why I’m a little skeptical about the “return” of overalls. A couple of brands did the look last year to little fanfare, so when I saw these (and a few others) pop up, my feelings didn’t really change. Why not? Well…

- I don’t know anyone over the age of ten who looks good in overalls.

- It’s an inherently casual look that doesn’t translate into everyday life (for anyone other than models).

and…

NOBODY LOOKS GOOD IN OVERALLS.

You know, let’s ignore the fact that this pair of True Religion Overalls are $277, and just think about the style. It’s something that wouldn’t actually surprise me too much if I saw it on a few people out here in the city, but I don’t know the right place for it, other than maybe a Dave Matthews Band concert.

But I’m only one person, and I want you to prove me wrong. Do you love the look?

Love,
JP

I can’t do it! I sported my share of overalls back in the day (several pair of shortalls even) but I can’t bring myself to love the return of this look.

I’m with the other Jen. Noooo! Overalls belong in the same category as Crocs: Cute ONLY on those under the age of 10. After that, it is just a silly and unflattering look. The only thing worse than overalls (and Crocs) on women is overalls (and Crocs) on men!
