Work it Baby, work it

This Spring is all about roughing it and right now that means rocking the season's newest fad... The overalls.

An obvious onset from the inescapable 90s revival upon us, dungarees littered S/S ranges.  From Ralph Lauren to L.A.M.B. (I can only imagine Gwen Stefani is in her element) the catwalks just oozed downtown cool.

Ralph Lauren
I have been obsessed with this look since Miss Chung slapped on her denim version and made them look effortlessly chic.  Yes one must confess her stick pins probably help, but I think it's a great laid-back look for summer.

To ensure you don't look like you're just busy painting your lounge, give your overalls a bit of a nod to mod by teaming them with a crop top or box tee or sport the pinafore dress, too cute with high-tops for some street cred.  The glam version is definitely out there too, as seen at Altuzarra.

I love Jean Paul Gautier’s thoughts on this trend:
"I've always loved overalls because they are a uniform.  And being true to myself, I love making something different out of them- cutting them in Levi's denim but with a conical bra.  I love to subvert a classic."

Common children of the 90s, I know you all have an Oshkosh pair lying around in your cupboards!  I'm totally embracing this one.
