You’ve known about the return of overalls for a while now. You’ve seen them on noteworthy women as varied as Keira Knightley, Selena Gomez and Cressida Bonas. And maybe you’ve even embraced the trend, buying a pair for yourself and wearing them to music festivals and for weekend lounging. But now you realize that they just aren’t fancy enough for occasions like date night, high-end shopping and work. What’s a onesie-loving gal to do?

Well, you could embrace the latest celebrity trend: black overalls. Like black jeans, these are the slightly dressier version of your favorite denim, fancy enough to wear to many offices and sassy enough for a night out. From left, Blake Lively wears the most polished version of the look, adding shiny patent brogues and a chic bag to her tailored pair. Kate Bosworth wore her Hudson Denim pair out on a date night (granted, it was a hockey game) with Robert Clergerie platform sandals, pink lipstick and a Dolce & Gabbana bag for a feminine twist. Gwen Stefani went slightly edgier by wearing her Paige overalls top-down (her new favorite look), but added stylish pieces like yellow loafers, a navy shell and cat-eye sunnies. And finally, Rumer Willis went most funky of all in a plunging tee and grungy boots.

PEOPLE StyleWatch editors are still split on this trend, but there’s no denying that the style in black has a certain je ne sais quoi. Have you already given overalls a shot? Do you prefer them in this dark wash? Tell us in the comments!
