“Cute vs. Sexy”…Girl group, How to wear overalls
‘Overalls’ is a fashion item that represents the 1990’s. It is a trouser that is combined with your jacket. It became a trend since ‘Seo Taiji and Boys’ wore them. The trend has come back as an ‘it’ item.
However, the latest fashion of the overalls is different from the design before. Boyish oversized overalls were a trend in 1990’s. Recently, overalls that are narrow at the ankle part are a trend. It has added feminine feeling by stressing beautiful legs. It has also made people think outside the box that ‘overalls are cute’. It gives chic feeling if it is black color.
Overalls give various feelings depending on details. It can be enjoyed since one can finish its styling with one trouser. The problem is to find one’s way to coordinate the overalls that fit one. Why wouldn’t you refer to ‘STARCAST’ fashion-idols?
▶ First step: Troublemaker Fashion = It is the best way to express cute overalls. Shorts are livelier than long pants. It can be enjoyed in hot summer. The point is to loosen the strings. The cuteness doubles if the upper clothes’ print is exposed.
★ Tip 1: Show off your attractive legs!
Overalls can also be worn as hot pants if it is narrow-legged and short. It will give you longer-looking legs and thinner-looking waist. If you loosen the thin strings longer, it will make you look as if you have put suspenders on your shorts. It is good to show your individuality.
★ Tip 2: Give point with your Snapback
If you put your snapback on with whatever clothes your wear, you can give a troublemaker look. That is why snapback matches so well with overalls. Prepare a snapback if you feel empty with one overalls. It would be more stylish if you match the color of the cap’s shade with your upper clothes’ point.
Professional Said: “If you want to look like a trouble maker with overalls, please wear printed t-shirt. It would be too boring if you wear plain pattern shirt. It will brighten your mood if you wear funny shirt.” '21DEFAYE' PR Jo Yoon Seo
▶ Second step: Chic Look = Overalls can be chic? It is possible. You can give chic feeling if you change your denim to black color. It is good to show your silhouette by wearing the tightest clothes at this time. Similar colored t-shirt matches well with black overalls than colorful ones.
★ Tip 1: Choose overalls with leather material
If leather is met with overalls, chic and charisma is added to it. Those two combination which seems it wouldn’t match will give you chic feeling. Leather does not wrinkle much. It can be more comfortable if you can bear the hotness. We recommend you to wear short and well ventilated ones.
★ Tip 2: Wear kill-heels
If you’re short, overalls may be burdening for you. But if you wear high kill-heels than low shoes, it can make up for your weak points. It can also give good effect to your beautiful legs. The ‘chemistry’ is better when you wear army boots or bootees than business wear shoes with casual overalls.
Professional Said: “Wear your overalls skirt longer than your miniskirt you usually wear. The skirt may go up more than you think since the skirt is combined with the suspenders. Do not be embarrassed but loosen your shoulder strings more.” 'Supremebeing' PR Lim Sung Hee
▶ Third step: Sexy Look = Being sexy always work in fashion. If you wear see-through clothes with your overalls then see-through look is completed. It gives you a different mood from when you wear a shirt. We recommend you crop-top if you’re confident with your body shape. Your pubic bones would show up and add more to your sexiness~.
★ Tip 1: Hold a Clutch bag~
The best bag match with overalls in 1990’s was backpack. But backpack is a taboo now. It may give you a look of a kindergarten going on a trip. Hold a cute mini clutch bag instead. Clutch bag matches well with sexy-looking overalls. It doesn’t make your style look bad.
★ Tip 2: Roll up the end of your trousers
It would look more stylish if you roll up the end of your overalls a little bit. The hems of your overalls may look dragging since the trouser is wide. The ankle may show up nicely if you fold up the end twice. It wouldn’t look stuffy if you wear whatever shoes with your rolled-up overalls.
Professional Said: “You can cover your lower part of your belly with the plastron. The trouser comes up to your waist and covers your side naturally. It also covers your broad shoulders since the overalls disperse the gaze. It makes you show the part which you want to show.” 'Pierre Hardy' PR Heo Jung Min
