"Overalls are always a good idea"

You might recognize this quote, one with perhaps a slightly different wording involving some city in Europe that's supposedly really pretty, coined by Audrey Hepburn. However, I would like to believe that if Audrey was a style icon of the 2000 and teens rather than the mid-late 20th century she would perhaps agree with my alteration to her famous saying. Overalls, particularly shortalls, are one of my new best friends! They are awesome for so many reasons! (And not awesome for only one-- think about potential overall removal velocity in event of bathroom emergency). A few choice points which lie within the multifarious reasons that overalls rule are as follows: they are usually denim and thus achieve the look of a Canadian Tuxedo in a more effortless way, they make the wearer look like a super hip painter and/or farm hand, and they tend to have an endless amount of pockets. 50 points for Gryffindor!  I like to pair my favorite shortalls (a total steal from American Eagle) with either a Breton stripe shirt, a bathing suit if I'm headed to the beach, or a white tank top.  This look always leaves me feeling either super cool and fashionable or, particularly when clad in stripes, like I am a little boy named Timmy or maybe Bobby who was probably an annoying cousin of the Boxcar Children who always wanted to tag along but was never invited. Pics of me in my shortalls will come soon enough, trust me ok?

For now, here are some of my favorite overall looks to tuck away in the style file.

Alexa. What a babe.

Cool girl club.

In conclusion, overalls are easy and chic all at once. Keep it simple, keep it cool.
