Overalls 101:

In case you didn’t get the memo, overalls are back, and they have been for a while. Not only is it this trend from the 80’s and 90’s insanely comfortable, but they are also practical and incredibly stylish. Bib overalls were, and still are the everyday apparel for some people. They were perceived as a uniform for the working masses, especially those in agriculture. And are perhaps the most versatile of transition items by allowing you to show others that you have something cool going on, whether it’s a layer underneath, or on top of them. Either way it’s pure genius.

Farmers, who really had it down before any of us, originally used them but the denim all-in-one really exploded when Princess Diana embraced it. Lately, luxury denim brands and designers are interpreting the overall in covetable iterations that will banish the words, “she could be a farmer in those clothes”, from any association with the look.

Now that overalls are popping up everywhere again, it seems like few people know how to wear them without looking like they just came from a farm. While sporting a denim onesie seems pretty foolproof (after all, everything matches with denim), figuring out the right shirt, shoes and accessories to pair with your overalls is an art form.

Here are 4 tips to help you look great in your favorite childhood trend:

  1. Leave the plaid at home: For real. This is one instance when wearing a flannel is not okay, unless you’ve been driving a tractor all day.
  1. Stripes, however, are an almost guaranteed home run: Channel your inner sailor with a blue-and-white striped shirt and you’ll look adorable, I promise.
  1. Fit is key: If you have a longer or shorter torso, try and find a pair of overalls with adjustable straps, so there is no gapping (or pulling) in the crotch area.
  1. Believe in yourself: No matter what trend you want to jump on as long as you wear it confident there is no look you cant rock and if you add a dazzling smile you’ve hit the ball out of the park!

Jurassic Park Ave.

I know it’s been a while since the movie Jurassic World came out, but I must confess, I’ve always been a huge fan of the Jurassic movies. Therefore, this look was inspired by Chris Pratt’s character’s wardrobe. Today I am wearing Forever21 denim shorts, paired with a simple grey v-neck from Old Navy, and I am accessorizing them with a denim vest from ZARA, and my brown leather cowboy meets safari hat from Goorin Bros. In this outfit, I feel like I can run away from a Velociraptor, and still have my fashion game on point (lol). Besides, my Birkenstock sandals strap around the back of my heels, so I think I could handle it. Although, I would need a place to carry an essential survival kit, and what better way than to pack it all up in my Chanel graffiti backpack. Of course, I couldn’t bear to leave little Fendi #karlito behind. And since his pink punk hair meshes perfectly with my backpack, it’s like a match made in fashion heaven! So basically, the moral of the look is, no matter what situation you are in, I think it’s always a good idea to look the part for your next adventure. 
   
    
    
    
    
 

#VenetoinMexico

After spending most of my time in New York City I felt it was about time to explore the Mexican version of a cosmopolitan city. I recently (okay like a month ago) visited Mexico City a magical place that did remind me of NYC. I stayed at my cousin’s apartment in La Condesa, streets full of artists and models and shops and restaurants kind of reminded me of SoHo. The food was as always amazing I am sorry but Mexican cuisine is quite delicious and of course with no doubt Mexico City houses many of the best restaurants recognized worldwide. Did a little damage to my credit card and went shopping to Mazaryk and it kind of looks like a mini 5th Ave. Louis Vuitton in a corner Cartier in the other and of course where I ended up shopping was at Zara which was right next to Massimo Dutti (see it does look like 5th). Unfortunately there are almost no walking between districts due to the fact that Mexico isn’t an island, which kind of sucked because I am used to walking everywhere but on the bright side uber was way cheaper then Manhattan so I always had a ride. After all even though I am Mexican and it did felt good to be “home” New York has everything I’ve ever wanted so for as long as I can handle it I will continue to call New York my home.
