If I had to describe the overalls, it would definitely be a ‘Man Repeller‘ item. You know those items us ladies wear that are super unappealing to the opposite sex – well the overalls are one of them. The overalls were definitely a childhood favourite of mines – I almost wish I kept a pair. They’re great for those days off, where you want to look like you didn’t try, yet still look super stylish. But let’s face it, overalls is an intimidating item to style and pull off. My tip is to treat them as if they’re jeans because you can pretty much pair them with just about any top. You also don’t need to spend a lot of money on this item, unless of course you’re in it to support your favourite brand. Trends like this that keeps returning you can easily pick up a pair at your local vintage spot. For your style reference, see my picks on some of the most stylish ways to wear your overalls.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always stuck to the usual when wearing sneakers. I would pair mines with the obvious sweats, shorts, track pants etc. But these days, I’ve been inspired by fellow bloggers and of course the new ‘sporty chic’ rise of fame to feel free to wear my sneakers with whatever I want. As a whole, I feel that fashion has become less strict and a tone of rules are being broken. Us ladies are not just restricted to wearing an evening dress at cocktail hour, sneakers at the gym, or swim suits at the beach. We are seeing more and more people breaking the rules and making that ‘occasion specific’ piece work any time of the day, month or year. With all this said, see my round up of 7 ways to look super chic in your sneakers this spring and summer.
Solange puts her enviable style on display for us to drool over for Cosmopolitan’s March 2014 issue. Cosmo captured some awesome shots in New Orleans, where Solo currently lives, capturing the singer’s style for the upcoming Spring season. Photographed in tons of pastels, a style Cosmo calls ‘femme but fly’ Solo gives us her take on this trend.
“When I think of pastels, I think of Easter Sunday. But designers are doing them in a really cool way. Just stick to the minimalist silhouettes and modern fabrics.”
See snippets of the shoot below.
