It’s the celebrities’ fashion crush of the moment: overalls. From Victoria’s Secret models to Hollywood actresses and singers, the humble blue denim overall has made it on to the radar of fashionistas. And who can blame them? Denim overalls are comfy and practical (unless you’re in the bathroom) and if styled correctly, they can be very glamourous in a trendy 70s kind of way.

The difference between overalls worn by factory workers as a protection garment and overalls worn as fashion statements is the cut. A well-tailored onesie will bring out curves you didn’t know you ever had.

Case in point: Taylor Swift who recently stepped out in a dark blue denim overall and made it look quite sexy. How did she do it? By choosing a skinny-leg overall which sits tight on your hips, but loose on your upper body. She combined the one-piece with a cropped white t-shirt baring a bit of skin around her waist.

Kate Bosworth sported a similarly fitted overall but opted for a flared leg and white tank top, giving her outfit more of a 70s vibe.

Model Lily Aldridge proved that overalls are comfortable when she wore her baby blue denim onesie on a flight to LA a few weeks ago. We love the long-sleeved white shirt she wore underneath – perfect for colder days.

For a more sporty, casual look, take a hint from the ever stylish Sarah Jessica Parker and wear a classic boyfriend-cut overall. To keep it from looking boring, make sure you cuff the legs and – if wearing a long-sleeved top – also roll up your sleeves.

So, if you love your jeans and denim in general (who doesn’t?), why not give overalls a go? The days of pulling up your pants are over.
