This Is the Model-Approved Way to Wear Overalls

Dacy Knight

Overalls tend to have a polarising effect and even those who support their wear can find them difficult to pull off. The head-to-toe look is daunting, to say the least, and stepping out in the enveloping denim number can be a considerable commitment. Luckily for us, there are others to blaze that fashion trail before us, so we can take a cue from how they impeccably execute the denim coverall trend.

Most recently, Alessandra Ambrosio gave overalls her supermodel stamp of approval. She wore her lightweight Paige number sans shirt underneath, prolonging those summer vibes for one last sunny stroll. The wide-leg cut and halter neckline of the boho number imbued major '70s vibes.

While the history of overalls reveals the denim dungarees fall in and out of fashion, for now, they're here to stay. Our favourite labels, from J.Crew to Rachel Comey, have all been experimenting with novel iterations that steer clear of bulky buttons, heavy hardware, and excessive pockets. This new wave of overalls favours a streamlined aesthetic, opting for lighter denim (or even chambray) and sleeker silhouettes that are more refined than their rough-and-tumble origins.
