I know what you’re thinking about: an overall? For an adult man? It’s not as unlikely as you might think: the men overall has become one of the most striking trends in this Summer 2017.
Like so many men’s clothing in history, also the overall comes from workwear. An important piece, that must reflect your style, avoiding to look a little more than a shepherd going to pasture.
The original models, such as theLightinthebox one that you see in this post, have no frills, no extra hinges, no special patterns and no “new materials”: in short, the classic denim men overall, that in summer is “reduced” becoming more agile, fresh and … dangerous to wear!
What to put under the men overall
There are a lot of ways to make great a men overall: that’s why is important to think well of what goes on under.
The secret is to leave it simple and match it with other basic items in both patterns and colors: a short sleeved shirt, a small pattern t-shirt or a simple one. Everything that doesn’t involve being too naked. Avoid anything related to the coutry-side, like a flannel shirt, and of course with elegance. Do not try to wear the men overall with a tie or something like that: less will always be better if you don’t want to take a risk!
If you want to have a more vintage look you can match the men overall with a rugby tee, as you can see in this post. And though, as it was created, the two straps would always be on the shoulders, it’s always better to leave it down. This adds a more relaxed look to your outfit.
Remember in any case that the essential to wearing it well is the i-dont-give-a-fuck attitude!
