Snob Essentials

Overalls: Slob or Snob?


Ah, the overalls. The staple item of the early 90’s has been trying to make a quiet comeback for the past year or so, and it’s slowly catching on. The laid-back, boyfriend-ish cut style and low maintenance wear-ability makes them tempting for Saturday errands; just throw on a white tee underneath and go. Keira Knightley paired her Citizens of Humanity overalls with a Burberry quilted jacketicon and Dr. Martens for a casual, retro-punk look, while Julianne Hough wore Wildfox overalls with some leopard flats, keeping it preppy-relaxed. Alessandra Ambrosio stayed super simple pairing her Big Star overalls with a white tee and sandals.


Citizens of Humanity Quincy overalls (on Shopbop for $297), Wildfox Chloe overalls (on Shopbop for $319), Big Star Heather overall in Junction (on Zappos for $76.99)

This trend has a lot of options, however. This look can quickly go from, “A Victoria’s Secret model looks good in them, so obviously, I will too” (like I thought about Heidi Klum’s bangs circa 2003, which resulted in having to wear a hand band for the next 6 months) to, “Why did I spend all this money to look like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?” They can also make you feel like you’re nine, regardless of how high a heel you pair with them – don’t say I didn’t warn you.

What do you think – trendy Snob or 90’s Slob?

  1. Overalls are definitely trendy right now, and I really hope they make a big enough comeback to stay in fashion for a long time to come.
    I think they are a great and unique fashion item in their own and they offer so many styling options both for men and women. Overalls might no be for everyone, but they look so much better than your ordinary pair of jeans. Definitely dress up in overalls if you want to stand out of the crowd and want to get noticed. Depending on how you style them, you can look everything from cute to cool to sexy, whatever you like.
