Both jumpsuits and utilitarian inspired pieces are totally having a moment right now, so it only makes sense that overalls –the traditional jumpsuit’s tomboyish little sister– is apparently on its way to becoming one of summer’s biggest trends. Judging by my Instagram feed and my knack for people watching, the burgeoning overalls trend seems to be on a solid path towards going straight-up viral for summer. Yes, it seems that overalls have indeed officially graduated from their outdated typecast as either a children’s aisle staple or practical workwear piece for farmers and train conductors, to an elevated (and Instagram-approved) alternative to classic jumpsuits and rompers.
Aside from my IG feed, I’ve also spotted overalls and workwear-inspired denim jumpsuits on the streets of LA in the last month with increased regularity during my people-watching outings while exploring the “hip” neighborhoods across town (i.e. Silverlake, Highland Park, and Venice), where you’ll find plenty of fashionable creative types with enviably innovative sartorial sensibilities. So-called “cool girls” ( you know, the girls who always seem to forecast and wear the rising trends on the cusp of becoming a thing at just the right moment before it blows up and goes mainstream) are embracing the charming one-piece as of late here on the West Coast. I’ve recently spotted boyish overalls styled with crop tops and sneakers and dressed up a bit with a structured blazer tossed on top and pair of those hopelessly sexy, “floss” heels that seemingly everyone is obsessed with at the moment.
Celebrities are also embracing the trend too –J.Lo, Emily Ratajkowski, and Margot Robbie have all been spotted rocking a pair recently. I’ve even seen a few chic Angeleno girls rocking old-school Carharrt overalls and somehow, making them look seriously cool —not like they were headed out to work on a construction site. And yes, I’m totally planning on copying these girls this season.
