Overall Chic

How to Wear Overalls, Olivia Palermo, street syle 2014Photos: Olivia Palermo; Courtesy of

I have been hunting high and low for a great pair of denim overalls. I want one that stays true to its utilitarian root while complements my personal style. This pair on Olivia Palermo fits the bill perfectly: I love the inky wash and tailored silhouette, also greatly appreciate that it still has all the elements of a classic denim overalls: buckled strips, loops, and a patch pocket details the bib. Pair it with feminine, sophisticated pieces for a grown-up, urban chic vibe. 

In Chinese: 一直很想收一条大热的牛仔背带裤,找了很久都没有满意的,不是颜色不理想就是版型太松垮。直到看到奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这条:黑色水洗加上修身的裤型,让原本过于休闲和孩子气的背带裤多了份都市感,同时又完整地保留了这种工装裤应有的元素,比如金属的搭扣、可调的背带、腰带圈和前兜上的口袋车线等。配上女人味的单品和配饰,休闲又优雅。 How to Wear Overalls, Olivia Palermo street syle 2014;  1.

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
