Farmer Chic

28 Nov

Sunday: I borrowed this look from an article Joe Zee (creative director @ Elle Magazine), did a few months back (don’t remember which issue). Overalls used to be big in the 80s. I remember we used to wear them with one strap hanging down. That was trend that the rap/breakdancing crowd (Hip Hop as it’s known today) used to rock. They are also a coveted item for many “moms” and those considered not so stylish and most commonly, the farmer. But I remixed them by pairing them with a animal print blouse (which is more on the “dressy” side) and platform boots and gold accessories. By styling the overalls this way it gives them a chic, stylish, put-together feel, rather than frumpy, which is usually how they are seen. Oh, and yes, I do carry a purse (well clutch today), I just don’t usually put them in shots because even though I have tons, I don’t like changing them, better yet, I’m just too lazy to go to the basement where they are stored and get one.What do you think? Would you wear overalls?
