It’s not news anymore that denim overalls have come back as chic fashion options since 2015 spring. What was first made for farmers and mechanics now has become the fashion statement version of denim. Well, if you haven’t got a chance to wear one yet, it won’t be too late for the coming fall.
I’d like to introduce my favorite pair - the skinny overalls in Adrian Wash from Madewell. Apparently, even though J Crew is failing in its sales figures, its sister brand, Madewell, is thriving in market partially due to its more hip and cooler look in its denim line. I haven’t found anything wrong with Madewell’s denim yet. They are artsy and chic look, as well as comfy. I would assume Chinese audience are probably somewhat familiar with the brand as well since they have tapped Liu Wen, the supermodel from China, for their catalogs again and again. Wen even wore their outfits several times in a popular Chinese reality show this summer.
Wearing the overalls reminds me a bit about childhood as well when overalls were one of basics for young girls in China. It used to represent cute and sweet somehow. But when you grow up, you don’t really care about looking sweet that much anymore. Pairing your overalls with a crop top, a mini bag and a pair of pointed pumps, you can add sexy flavors in your “cool look”. You can also easily put together other looks by changing your top to a white tee, an off-the-shoulder shirt or wearing short boots with a jacket on. If you want to look more casual and at ease, go with “boyfriend” style overalls.
A few words about Balenciaga’s Papier A4 mini bag. It’s definitely one of the hottest items in 2015, especially for Anne Hathaway since she was spotted taking her yellow Papier A4 everywhere. A bright color is always good. But I think this Black & Red rubber finish leather bag looks more decent and unique. Plus, it goes with everything. However, you probably can’t get the same type anymore since it’s a limited version of Papier A4 family. But of course, you can always try eBay.
