Pro tip: stripes and overalls never go out of style.
Sure, some might say that they're yesterday's fashion, but to me, they're the epitome of classics. Men, women, and everyone in-between can benefit from a good striped tee and some vintage overalls. It's a look that keeps coming back in style, and withstanding the test of time.
In the hot California sunshine, overalls are my ultimate summer staple. I love layering them over a vintage band tee, or even over a bikini or bodysuit. It's one of the most versatile pieces one can own, and literally looks good on almost anything. Even in the cooler months, you can make your overalls winter-friendly by layering a thermal underneath and styling with some thigh-high boots and a beanie. Talk about street chic.
But for me, my favorite way to wear them is over a good ole' black and white striped tee. This one is from Madewell, and has a really cool open back when it's not covered up by the overalls. I also love this men's one from Everlane, and this muscle tank from Reformation.
Don't be afraid to rock a great pair of overalls. Long gone are the days of farmer chic dungarees. Keep it hip, keep it stylish, and you'll be sure to keep cool this summer, in more ways than one.
