Overalls were first introduced in the 1700s and worn as protective clothing while working. All over America in modern times, painters, farmers, locomotive engineers, carpenters, trade workers among other tradesmen and workmen wear bib overalls as protective overgarments. In the 1960s different colors and patterns were introduced as both sexes wore them with one strap unfastened. Ever since then overalls have grown to be a fashion trend and were again brought back in the 1990s mostly by females.
Fast forward to the present day, overalls have been a hot trend for the past year now from shorts to the full length skinny leg trousers paired with heels. I've seen skirt overalls around too, but weren't as popular. Black leather overalls were seen in many mainstream stores as the trend had a peak this past winter. I'm glad that overalls made a comeback because they are another piece that can be both stylish, casual, and comfortable. I am in love with these overalls from Zara and couldn't resist when I saw them! The weather is starting to warm up and I had fun mixing this black and white striped crop top with them. They are perfect for a casual day and the look can be switched by changing the shoes with any flat, sandal or boot.
