The phrase “winter overalls” sounds oxymoronic at worst and too-good-to-be-true at best. Because overalls are strictly a spring/summer subject—they’re the stuff of park frolicking, and outdoor picnicking, and channeling Meryl Streep in “Mamma Mia”. Overalls aren’t compatible with snow, or slush, or ice—or any other treacherous weather phenomenon that strikes between the months of December and February.

But I’m here to let you know that not only do winter overalls exist. They exist en masse—at all of your favorite retailers—and they’re exactly as delightful as they sound.

Zara was the first to tip me off to the idea that winter overalls could be more than a fever dream. The store stocked up on a few pairs of the item—all of which felt distinctly more Scandinavian than their denim counterparts, leaving them feeling distinctly winter-appropriate, too. I bought a black pair and a camel pair, because when winter overalls come a-knocking, you stock up—and you stock up quick. (I’ve managed to combine my overalls with a handful of turtlenecks, sweaters and flannel button-downs so far, so you can rest assured knowing they’re exactly as winter-friendly as advertised.)

But Zara isn’t the only fast-fashion destination with winter overalls on offer. Urban Outfitters has some, too. Forever 21 has some solidly streetwear-inspired options. And true to form, ASOS is selling every kind of winter overall you can imagine. Whether you’re looking for cozy corduroy, versatile linen, ever-edgy nylon or something else entirely, you’re sure to find something worth shopping before winter ends. And naturally, we’ve compiled a shortlist to help you do so.
