Overalls have come full circle as do most trends. My guess is that most of you probably haven’t worn them since you were under the age of 5 so the thought of rocking them now feels either childish or down right crazy. Just like I swore I’d never wear skinny jeans (spoiler alert: now that’s all I own), I swore the overall trend was definitely not for me. Here I am eating my words yet again because I’m officially head over heels for these overalls.
The Madewell overalls that I’m wearing are by far the most popular pair of overalls out there right now. They are a pretty penny but after trying out several pairs of lower priced options, none compared to the Madewell pair in terms of quality and fit. To be completely transparent I also only tried three other pairs- this Old Navy pair (runs true to size), this American Eagle pair (size up 2 sizes), and this Francesca’s pair (true to size). Don’t get me wrong, all are decent alternatives but after experiencing the Madewell ones there was just no turning back. So if you don’t want to even be tempted with the price tag, do not even try them on because you will inevitably buy them and question everything you once stood for.
What I love about these overalls is the amount of stretch, the high waist, large pockets and large bib structure in the back. You will find that a lot of overalls have more of a suspender look in the back which is not the most flattering and usually results in gaping. They do fit true to size (i’m wearing an XS) and have adjustable straps. If you want to try out this trend as well, I’ve rounded up my favorites at all price points!
