5 Cool Ways To Style Overalls

Overalls have quite the storied history: Arriving on the scene as staple for farmers, workers, and militia in the 1700s, the uniform eventually made its way to the mainstream circa 1960. In the '80s, the silhouette had a major pop-culture moment — acid-washed and with one shoulder unfastened, of course — and in the '90s, it became the style du jour for toddlers (OshKosh B'Gosh, anyone?). With its comeback among the normcore enthusiasts today, it's easy to see this onesie's permanent place in the fashion cycle. But, though we're embracing the look, it can be tricky to ditch its not-so-grown-up feel. So, to keep the overalls trend moving well beyond our #TBTs, we're bringing you five modern ways to freshen up our childhood classic.
With new overalls styles from AG, like an all-black tapered-leg cut and a feminine pinafore, you can easily turn the latest interpretations up a notch with clever styling. From chunky, ice-blue platforms to sophisticated button-ups, there's an overalls pairing for everyone. Check out the looks ahead — if you ask us, these are ones for the history books.
