Back when we originally thought overalls were cool, cell phones had barely gone mainstream and the Spice Girls dominated our boomboxes. We never really yearned for the ’90s staple to make a comeback, but you know how the saying goes: Everything comes back in style eventually.
Just like everyone’s other favorite ’90s trend, scrunchies, overalls are officially back on our fashion radar. And you know how you can really tell they’ve made a comeback? Our fave celebs and fashion brands are remixing their overalls and wearing them 2014 style. Whether you love or hate the trend, you have to admit that these ladies are rocking the look with the best accessory of all: confidence.
We’re digging the way Zoe Saldana styled her overalls. With a striped 3/4-sleeve top and colorful ballet flats, the trend gets dressed up a bit.
If a supermodel like Alessandra Ambrosio thinks short overalls are cool, us mere mortals can definitely get behind the idea.
Julie Bowen took her overalls for a spin at her local farmers market and looked simply adorable. We know what you’re thinking: This look could very easily have gone very “farmer.” Luckily, Julie’s cool canvas slip-ons, petite straw hat and hipster glasses lend the look a cool vibe.
British fashionista Fearne Cotton showed us a cute way to style your overalls on a chilly day: Just add tights, black booties and a form-fitting coat.
The temps are rising right now, but when things cool down in a few months you’ll want a way to wear your overalls and stay warm. Julianne Hough wore hers with a long-sleeve crop top, an oversized scarf and animal print flats while out and about in Los Angeles.
