Celebrities Love…Denim Overalls

Celebrities Love Denim Overalls

Overalls: Just call them the comeback kid. This blast-from-the-past may not conjure visions of sartorial splendor. But, like it or not, the denim dungarees are staking another claim on the fashion farm.

Designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Isabel Marant, even MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, have recently elevated the lowly one-piece, taking it from fashion outcast to front-row status, with their own unique interpretations.

No longer a relic of the wonky, rebellious 90s, this riff on rural workwear has once again traipsed into the street-style vocabulary—and the closets—of some of today’s hottest starlets.

Keira Knightley recently indulged her inner tomboy in a cool and comfortable look featuring ” target=”_blank”>Citizens of Humanity’s ‘Quincy’ rolled-up overalls and sneakers, worn with the ultimate contradiction—a Chanel quilted, cross-body bag.

Also going for a low-key and luxe mix, Alexa Chung strapped on a simple black denim pair over a plain white tee, to which she added ballet flats and a Louis Vuitton carryall.

Naturally, Selena Gomez served up a sexy edge with her baggy coveralls, flaunting them over a lace bra. With the pants haphazardly rolled at the bottom and accessorized with a gigantic, nubby scarf and an unzipped black tote, this look gave new meaning to sloppy-chic with its trendster appeal.

Love or loathe?

    I’ve worn denim overalls a lot when I was 4 or 5 years old. Don’t know if I’d wear them now..

    I actually love them… Haven’t worn one for ages, but want to get one asap! Is that wrong??

    I wouldn’t wear them but I can totally see my 15 year-old daughter rocking some overalls.

    I associate denim overalls with my junior high years. I really don’t need to relive the late 90’s.

    I loathe the, they’re uncomfortable and unflattering. It’s not even good on somebody like K. Knightley!

    No way. These belong on the farm.
