Overalls? Maybe…

VogueWhen they first made a comeback, I took a pass on overalls– too young, not always flattering. But, this pic of model Caroline Brasch Nielson could sway me. In cream with a neutral sweater is super chic, and ageless.

  • I agree, if the look is carefully crafted, It can be a great casual look. I used to have a natural linen pair I loved wearing in the summer.

  • Just Say No………

  • Overalls? Never, sorry! Much too down on the farm to ever be chic. I agree, just say no!

  • Oh, say it ain’t so please…..

  • No! It belongs with camouflage and neon…in the trash!

  • To me, these fall into the category of “if you wore it back in the day, don’t wear it now” . I think it really is a young girl’s look and trendy at that. Also think it looks best on a certain body type – very tall and lanky. Sorry to be so negative, but on this look, I’m quite opinionated!

  • Thoughtfully put together as above and definitely in white I would consider it.

  • Not then, not now. Period.

  • Definitely not ageless. Instead, could be very aging.

  • Really? Not super chic or ageless unless you happen to live on a farm or be working in your garden.

  • Love it if I were tall and lanky, which I am not. But I do paint in denim overalls in the winter…..

  • Uh oh, another step back to hippiedom . . . And who’s back side really looks good in overalls?

    PaulaJuly 11th, 2014  1:31 AM

     
  • Our mutual friend, Mark Sikes, will disagree on this subject, but I think the idea of a woman wearing overalls is not good. Reminds me of a giant toddler or rodeo clown. Just a trend invented by the fashion industry.

  • Overalls are not for a mature stylish woman. Definitely for the under 30 set. To me, they seem very unflattering!

  • Correction: just saw a pic of Katie Holmes in a denim pair I’m not a big fan of how she puts herself together but I thought the overalls were adorable on her. A really cute casual look!

  • I ran across a picture of Olivia Palermo in a black pair of overalls and an over sized white blouse. Not for everyone, but definitely not tacky.
