Never Too Early Or Too Late: We Still Love Overalls!

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.

背带裤在今春各大时装周和各种时尚博客中可谓是出尽了风头,一片春回大地之照。想当年主要是设计来给农民和工人穿的东东,现如今可是时尚界的宠儿。今春你要没来及跟风扭搭一下的话,眼见秋天也不远了,出来招摇一番正是时候。而且背带裤最大的好处是,好搭好配好舒服,就是上茅房稍微费点劲儿。

记得小的时候倒是有过好几条背带裤,貌似是所有中国小姑娘标配之一,穿上精神利落之余,还多了几分甜美可爱。但可爱这东西在时尚界是没几毛钱意义的,这长大之后,背带裤还得穿个酷劲儿,起个范儿,才不枉称跟风一下潮流。当然了,这东西要说起来也好配,首先白T搭背带裤是永远不会出错的选择,人家赵薇不是也穿着上过电影发布会?要想耍点小性感,可以在露肩或露腰上做文章,尖头细高跟是必备。要想耍酷也不难,先换双短靴,最好上面还有铆钉那种,然后罩件夹克,各种摇滚。还有什么英伦风、文艺青年风之类的,全看你怎么玩儿转各种背带裤搭配,弄好了确实还是神单品之一,各种风格尽在掌握。

隆重推介一下文中来自Madewell的这件背带裤。看《我们相爱吧》的盆友应该对品牌不陌生,大表姐刘雯在里面换过老多套他家的服装,不愧是给作代言来了。作为美国流行品牌J Crew的姊妹品牌,Madewell在牛仔系列上的表现尤其出色,主打酷帅舒适,颇得年轻人欢心。尽管J Crew的销售成绩一路下滑,却丝毫没有影响Madewell在全美继续开疆拓土。

今年迷你包各种抢占版面,我个人的眼光看来跟安妮海瑟薇比较相仿,对Balenciaga家的Papier A4情有独钟。安妮小姐今年屡次被拍到带着她的亮黄色A4出入各种场合,啥子机场、逛街……一个都不能少。我个人比较喜欢这款红与黑的限量款,神秘中带着几抹妖艳,低调的奢华感,而且比较百搭。最后不得不夸赞一下这款包两侧的拉链设计,经典。
