Overalls are the kind of thing we strictly associate with spring- and summertime. They drip with day-at-the-park appeal, warranting photo shoots full of flowers and sun. What many of us don’t realize, though, while we’re fantasizing about all the idyllic Instagrams we’ll snap in our dungarees, is that overalls are actually incredibly warm and fall/winter-friendly. And believe it or not, long denim overalls are among the coziest around.

I first stumbled upon this fun fact during my second winter in New York City. It was frigid for months on end, and I was getting tired of wearing the same black jeans every single day. (Always with fleece-lined tights underneath, of course.) Desperate for an ensemble that would break the monotony while still keeping me warm, I grabbed a pair of black denim overalls I’d bought the previous spring. Floor-length, crafted from thick material, and just roomy enough to allow for leggings to be worn underneath, they were perfectly seasonally appropriate. Not to mention, they paired magnificently with every turtleneck and sweater in my closet—opening up a world of winter-friendly sartorial possibilities I’d had no idea existed.

Though I’d purchased my overalls with spring and summer wear in mind, they proved to be a staple capable of carrying me through any season. Plus, the fact that they’re basically just pants makes them inherently transitional—just switch out blouses (and layer on undergarments) as you see fit.

A go-to that’s as chic as it is practical? That’s certainly something we could all stand to have a little more of in our lives—stock up.
