Part 3 of our EDIT No.4 has us in the youth-minded category of overalls.
Often associated with farming and outdoor workwear, spring found them in fluid silks and lean, body flattering silhouettes fit for day-to-evening. Here are a few of our favorite ways to wear them this spring season on our friend Jihae, who might just have you convinced to sport a pair yourself!

Bare it all! Or dare to wear the overall not just as pants, but as your top too. I’ll be honest, not every woman may be so keen on this, but I think they pair wonderfully with a cool bra too. Try something sporty (i.e.: Calvin Klein‘s iconic style) or something sexy but still covered, like one from Fortnight.

The thing about overalls, is they’re kind of like the Canadian Tuxedo of spring dressing : the sleeveless top and bottom not only match, they’re connected! So it’s nice to keep in mind easy ways to break up said look – like an oversized vest worn over a more feminine fitted style of overalls. You’re hinting at the idea without having to commit too hard.

Perhaps the most fun you can have with them is by mixing tonally. I love this printed pair from & Other Stories, they’re fun, but the look is kept sophisticated by pairing them with a high-neck lace top and pumps. Pumps! The answer to all of our: how do I keep this from looking like I just escaped day-care look.

Will you venture into the past and bring overalls back to the future?
