The return of the '90s first began on the beauty scene this season, with designers showing their nostalgia for the era through smudged eyeliner, tightly lined waterlines, matte brown lipstick and grungy hair accessories inspired by Courtney Love. And now, the '90s are making their way back into our wardrobes through slip dresses, chokers, and of course, overalls – a simple '90s wardrobe essential worn by both teens and their mothers.
Overalls have been spotted on celebs and street style stars for a few seasons now, but because the '90s have blown up in such a big way for spring-summer 2016, we thought we would break down one of the era's most prominent trends (that also just so happens to be perfect for rising temperatures).
Whether you're taking a stroll with your dog, heading to a friend's backyard BBQ, or spicing them up for a night out, believe it or not, overalls can be both casual and sexy depending on how you wear them!
Check out 3 different ways to rock overalls for summer.
The cool, relaxed denim onesie look is perfect for a casual bike ride around the neighbourhood or simply hanging out with your friends on a hot summer day. To create this look, pair your denim overalls with a striped sailor-inspired t-shirt underneath to add cool-factor to your look. Finish it off with a pair of white sneakers, your favourite sunnies, and an effortlessly cool top-knot or messy bun.
One common misconception about overalls is that they give you a casual, tomboy-ish appearance, when really, overalls can be played up to offer a more feminine appeal if styled correctly. To adopt a feminine appearance that works for more sophisticated events, opt for skirt overalls in a softer texture or colour than regular denim. Pair a sultry lace or sheer top underneath and finish off the look with heels.
Canadian tuxedos are a tough look to re-create, but if done right, they're the perfect stylish solution for day-to-day wear. To create a stylish Canadian tuxedo, pair your overalls with another denim top underneath, leaving the buttons open for a sultrier appeal. To amp up your denim-on-denim look, opt for a bold pair of heels in a vibrant colour to play up the summer vibes!
