Overall, it was a good idea!

Hello ladies!

From minions to Bob the Builder, American farmers and railroad workers to Shraddha Kapoor in the OK Jaanu title track, have you noticed something they all have in common? If you have been through my Instagram posts, you'd know my love for overalls or overall or dungarees! As a little girl, I have always wanted to own a pair, but because fashion wasn't as easily accessible back then as it is now, I could only dream of jumping around in one.

Overalls are for everyone! If you go the rural areas in the United States, from painters to factory workers to mechanics, almost every man who considers this a protective garment would be wearing a pair. This is how the existence of overalls actually came into picture in early 1930's. But soon, around 1969, overalls became a high fashion trend among young women and they were manufactured in different kinds of fabric and prints. After a few years, the craze for overalls gradually faded. It was only in the 90's, overalls came back in style. Most of my friends who had family in the United States owned a pair and proudly wore it to class on birthdays. And now, in 2017, they are back again!

I could not resist this one particular pair of overalls when I found them at a sale in Max! They were the perfect shade of blue, ripped at the right places and they fit me really well. And guess how much I paid for them? 1000 bucks! Earlier, people wore it with fitted t-shirts, flannel shirts or just a plain old white tee. I had recently spotted this cute crop top at Dresslily and I am usually a bit hesitant to wear crop tops, but I could not think of a better way to make use of this beauty. It cost me hardly $5-$7 and I can also probably wear it with a saree. What do you think?
