Overall Chic

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.
