An overall will instantly give your outfit a retro vibe. Comfortable and cool, but it can also be combined in a classy feminine look.

What’s in a name?
Back in the day overalls were designed for farmers and (railroad) workers. They were worn for protection and to make sure the overalls would last a long time denim was used. In the sixties boys and girls started wearing dungarees as a fashion statement. They were made in multiple colours and prints and of course you would see straps worn loose (because: rebellious) regularly. Long story short: overalls (America), dungarees (Great Britain) andsalopettes (France) became really popular!

Styling short overalls
Still, dungarees are often announced in trend reports. I especially love the short style – show those legs! Lovely when combined with a blouse, croptop or simply a casual t-shirt. Create a girly look with heels (or sandals and preppy socks à la Ellie) or go for a tougher look by wearing boots or sneakers.

Anyway; pink or red, with or without floral print and from denim to corduroy: these shortalls have found their place in beautiful outfits. Do you feel like grabbing your overalls to create your own combination already?

    Zo’n salopette in de korte variant draag ik ook erg graag. De mijne is heel simpel in jeans en wordt heel vaak uit de kast gehaald 🙂
