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!

Team Wang

The last pieces to my #AlexanderwangxHM collection are finally in and for this cold weather covering your ears is a must. In this look I am keeping myself warm and comfortable without losing the right amount of cool vibe to rock Manhattan’s freezing streets. Here I am wearing the Wang beanie and sunglass from his recent collaboration with H&M. A black quilted jacket from Micheal Kors to keep me warm, a black tee from Alexander Wang and a Calvin Klein shirt tied around the waist. Keeping the look in dark tones by adding dark indigo denim from Joe Fresh, a pair of black runner 5.0 Nike shoes and my Chanel boy bag. The outfit looked sporty chic and comfortable for this nasty weather that’s seems to be here for the next couple of months, keep warm everybody.

Las últimas piezas de la colección #AlexanderwangxHM están finalmente en mis manos para este clima en el qué cubrirte incluso las orejas es un must. Con este look me mantengo cubierto y cómodo sin perder la vibra cool que rompe el frío de las calles de Manhattan. Como accesorio estoy usando el beani de Wang y los lentes de su reciente colaboración con H&M. La chamarra de pluma de ganzo de Michael Kors para mantenerme caliente, mi camiseta negra de Alxender Wang y una camisa de Calvin Klein amarrada a la cintura complementan el look. Para mantener los tonos obscuros añadí mis jeans índigo de Joe Fresh, mis tenis 5.0 Nike y mi boy bag de Chanel. El outfit es sporty chic y cómodo para este clima tan complicado que aparentemente estará así por los próximos meses, mantenganse calidos.

School Boy

After 2 months of graduating I kind of miss school (ajjaja not really) being out in the adult world in Manhattan is just so thrilling. For the school boy look I used denim on denim one of my favorite combinations. Mid length denim shorts from Forever21 paired with a Givenchy t-shirt and my Hollister crop denim jacket was the perfect assemble to go with my navy blue Chanel boy bag and to pop some color my Creative Recreation kicks where just the piece missing and I was ready to go on the schools fieldtrip (jajaja).

If I was your BoyFriend

Now that the weather in NYC is finally going back to “normal” a denimception is always a good idea. Putting different types of denim together for a very casual everyday look. The denim jacket is from Hollister, under it the denim shirt from H&M and my Hudson jeans. To complement the look just add a pair of Prada booties and the boy friend everybody should have, my Chanel boyfriend bag in navy is just the perfect combination of blue.
