LOOKBOOK | In overalls, finally

As with denim jackets (and many other things for that matter), I have this longstanding fascination with overalls (or dungarees, as they're also called). Yet despite this prolonged desire, I have never owned one until recently. Wihee!

Though traditionally intended as work wear, overalls have of course found their way into mainstream fashion. Well, sort of. I mean, they're not as ubiquitous as jeans or joggers and finding one for guys can be a challenge. Otherwise, I would have already owned one a long time ago.

Originally I was picturing a pair in solid dark blue denim but when I found this faded and ripped creation from Zara, I instantly fell in love. I could probably wear just the overalls and pretend I'm some hot guy in a photo shoot or something but no, that would be too sleazy, at least in my case. So I covered up and wore a henley under it.

Now in keeping with the "fashion" aspect of the overalls, I wore boat shoes even if I was nowhere near the sea. Sneakers were my other option. It was also fun playing with the straps, however predictable keeping one strap unfastened was.
