How Celebrities Wear Overalls Without Looking Like Kindergarteners

Olivia Palermo Overalls Cropped

Move over rompers, there’s another onesie in town. If you like anything denim, and love a 90s fashion reference, you’ll be pleased to know that overalls are back in fashion. If the last time you wore a pair of overalls was when your Mom had to help you do up the buckles, you’re not too old for them. There are plenty of super-adult ways to style overalls and hopefully now that you’re older, you won’t need anyone’s help putting them on.

Here are 15 celebrities who prove that overalls aren’t just for kids playing in sandboxes:

1. Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra Ambrosio not only chose an unconventional pair of striped shortalls, but she styled them in a different way. She layered her sweater under them. It sounds like a horrible style combination, but it works. She is a supermodel, so are you surprised?

2. Diane Kruger
Diane Kruger OverallsDiane Kruger went with a more casual look compared to the high fashion I-just-stepped-off-the-pages-of-French-Vogue looks we’re used to seeing her in. Mind you, the bow sandals do dress up the overalls.

3. Gwen Stefani

Never one to follow conventional style rulesGwen Stefani wore her overalls like a regular pair of pants, and paired them with killer heels. Who knew overalls could be so hot?

4. Julianne Hough

After seeing Julianne Hough pull off this layered overall look, every girl thought, “if Julianne can wear overalls, I can too.” Nice leopard shoes.

5. Kylie Jenner

6. Alexa Chung

I don’t know much about Alexa Chung, other than the fact that she really likes overalls. Here she is test-driving baggy shortalls. The scraped knees with overalls combination pushes her into five-year-old territory, but the snakeskin bag keeps her from looking like she belongs on the playground.

7. Miley Cyrus

8. Olivia PalermoOlivia Palermo Overalls

Are you surprised that the girl who wore shorts to her wedding jumped on the overalls bandwagon? I bow down to Olivia Palermo for making these black overalls look Audrey Hepburn chic.

9. Rihanna

Of course Rihanna was wearing overalls before they started showing up on every other hipster you pass on the street. She styled this light-wash pair with a bag and shoes that had to have been borrowed from Barbie.

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

Based on the hole in the knee, I would have guessed Sarah Jessica Parker borrowed those overalls from her son, but I think this outfit is the clever styling of her daughter. Check out that adorable bunny hat!

11. Zoe Saldana

It looks like Zoe Saldana was inspired by a very stylish fisherman. Even her husband is impressed with this look.

12. Fergiefergie red carpet overalls

How could I have not remembered that Fergie had a thing for overalls back in the day? She wore them with only one leg cuffed, that is something you don’t forget easily.

13. Rita OraRita Ora Cow Print Glastonbury 2014

Rita Ora experimented with a cow-print splattered pair of overalls that I guarantee no one else will have. Her styling choices are also one-of-a-kind too. Where can you buy a pair of white fringed cowboy boots outside of Texas nowadays?

14. Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff OverallsI never would have expected this look from Lizzie McGuire. Pink overalls over a pink shirt, yes, but a tied t-shirt, hair scarf and bold lipstick? Definitely not.

15. Emma Watson

      The overalls with the tops left hanging down sounds like a ridiculous idea, but Hilary and Gwen make it work like I never thought possible.

    • Charmless

      Oh man… I rocked Dickies overalls with the top down like it was no one’s business back in high school.

      I actually just replaced my striped Dickies overalls, but my sister made a snide remark about them and I shouted “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND FASHION!” and stomped away. Some things never change.

        haha At least you know she won’t be stealing the new overalls from you.
