Overalls Are Really Happening. Are You In or Out?

There are some trends we were so sure would never come back, like neon crushed velour and polyester floral print bell-bottoms. And until recently, we were pretty sure we could add overalls to that list.

But now that we’ve seen the style on some of Hollywood’s most trendsetting stars, we are starting to come to the realization that we may have discarded our pair from sixth grade a little too hastily.

Selena Gomez (left) gave her pair a fashion-y spin with a crop top, scarf and pricey Dolce & Gabbana handbag; Keira Knightley has been living in her Citizens of Humanity pair lately, wearing them on her honeymoon and all around town; and Alessandra Ambrósio’s look a little retro when worn with a printed tank and cognac wedges.

Now that you’ve seen three very different ways to wear them, do you think they’re a fun substitute for jeans? Or are you not ready to resuscitate this trend? We think we’ll proceed with caution — but talk to us again in three months after we’ve seen stars wear them all summer.

My love affair with overalls ended when I was 5.
I don’t care if you wear them with a Chanel purse, they will never be ‘chic’.

Comfy. I might cause I’m pregnant and it hides the belly well. I wear them while doing yard work, so I don’t have to constantly pull my pants up and get them dirty.
