OK, we need to talk. Whenever we see Alexa Chung do anything we totally take note because, duh, she’s a fashion “It” girl. She’s always on the forefront of trends and trying new things and blahdy blahdy blah, but sometimes we’re a wee bit skeptical of the next big thing she’s trying to pull off. And lately, that means overalls—real, actual, TLC-style oversized overalls (See also: That House of Style segment on colored denim.) OK, maybe they’re not that crazy, but still! We haven’t seen these bad boys pop up since the ’90s (well, if you don’t count Miley Cyrus’ denim jumpsuit thing from a few weeks ago), and we’re kiiiind of not quite sure if we’re ready for it to come back. In mid July, Alexa sported vintage-y denim dungarees with a statement necklace and black tank. She accessorized with ankle espadrille wedges, a snakeskin bag, and circle sunnies. We’re sorta feeling this retro vibe, but these overalls are bordering on culottes territory, and yeah…. *shiver*
Earlier this year, Alexa wore some super-sized overalls paired with a navy peacoat and dainty button-up beige blouse. She finished the look with some metallic peep-toe wedges (LOVE!) and a floral clutch. We feel like this outfit COULD work if the overalls were a bit more fitted. Rolled up bottoms on a baggy pair of pants = no bueno for us. Her most recent (and best!) overalls ensemble was from last week. She wore black denim overalls with a crystal-embellished Zara top, a Topshop bag, and Badgley Mischka sandals. We definitely like this look the best of all because what COULD be a very childish play-suit ensemble, was paired with heels and a demure bag making it more adult. But what do you think—would you ever give the overall trend a try? Tell us below!
