When I was a freshman in college, I was really into wearing overalls. I thought they were very comfortable for school and easy to put together for an outfit. I had five pairs of overalls in different materials and colors (blue jeans, white jeans, and brown cords). I wore either black oxford or tennis shoes with the blue and the white overalls. I also had a pair of brown Mary Janes (with chunky high heels) dedicated for the brown cords overalls.
A classmate of mine once asked me a question while I was in school: “Hey, Shirley, my uncle is a farmer and he wears overalls all the time. But you are not a farmer, why are you wearing overalls so often?” This showed how obsessed I was with the overalls. My passion for overalls phased out after the first few years in college.
This season overalls have made their way back into the fashion trend. This time, it’s no longer a relaxed fit as it used to be. They are in a more fitted design, often with straight leg hems. This enable us to create a more stylish look. You can pair them with a simple tee shirt and sandals for the day time, or pair them with a fashionable black pump for a evening out.
Many name brand jeans companies are offering overalls for this season. For example, you can get Paige Denim-Sierra overalls for $279 (on sale for $186.93), Citizens of Humanity-Drama Quincey overalls for $297 (on sale for $198.98), and True Religion for $358. I think these are a bit too pricey! Whereas you can get a less expensive pair from Nordstrom for under $100, or from H&M for just $39.
Is it worth it to buy a pair of overalls for over $300? I really like Citizens of Humanity’s Drama Quincey overalls, but I am not sure if I want to pay $300 for a pair of overalls that I only plan to wear a few times. Will you invest this much for a pair of overalls for this season?
