Remember when Amber from Clueless uttered those timeless words, “She could be a farmer in those clothes”? Well clearly Selena Gomez got the memo, because the starlet was spotted strutting through the streets in a questionable get-up that had us reevaluating everything we know about fashion. We expected to hate it. In theory, baggy overalls and sneakers is a no-no in our book, but somehow, it looked extraordinarily adorable on Selena — maybe it had something to do with the fact that Cody Simpson was nearby.
Overalls are a slippery slope, no matter what time of year you’re sporting them. The trick is to walk the fine line between casual and flirty — the perfect combination for those long summer days. Selena’s get-up could have easily wandered into “what was she thinking?” territory, but the singer kept things fresh and youthful by incorporating a black crop top that showcased her sassy style. A floppy hat and comfy espadrilles seemed like the perfect choice for a laid-back look.
So, how can you rock overalls like a pro? Take a cue from Selena and pair it with casual basics, or dress things up a bit with a classic white button-down. Roll up your overalls at the ankle for a chic take on the trend, while a pair of nude strappy sandals or pumps is ideal for bringing the entire look together. Perfect for the Fourth of July holiday, this is one outfit we’ll be replicating all summer long.
