{How To Wear}: Overalls

Let's talk about one of my all-time favorite summer staples: overalls.  The popularity of this trend may come and go over the years, but I am one to always wear my overalls proudly.  There is nothing more perfect to wear for a casual day of garage sales, gardening, trips to the farmer's market, or running errands.  This summer trend is nothing new though, as overalls have been popping up in women's fashion for close to 100 years!

Women first began wearing overalls when they took over laboring jobs from men who went to fight in World War I. 

Later in the 40s-50s, overalls and play-suits were back but became more stylish and feminine.

Overalls remained popular through the 70s and 80s as well (Princess Diana shows off a more prim and preppy style below).  They even returned again in the 90s as grunge fashion was taking over the fashion world.

The trend that began as basic work wear, lately has evolved into a huge street style trend that you can dress up or down.  Take a look at some of the great modern takes on overall outfits below, then when you're ready to try the trend yourself, Street Scene has all kinds of overalls, cut-off denim jumpers, and denim dresses to get you started!
