Fashion F* Ups: Overalls
Aug 22, 2008 - by Amanda Gabriele
Overalls- the garment of choice for the hard-working man. Durable, rugged and functional, they act as attire for farmers, mechanics and even firemen during rough, dirty and often dangerous tasks. And though these people may arise at the crack of dawn, overalls guarantee a job well done sans exposed ass-crack. Lately, I have seen this one-piece wonder popping up in the most peculiar places, sitting next to me at lunch or shopping in the same aisle at Duane Reade. Overalls stood next to me at the bar last weekend and even sweat it out on the dance floor. The problem I see with this fashion trend is the laziness backing it up. Is it really that difficult to keep your pants pulled up enough to prevent indecent exposure? If this task is truly posing a serious problem, why not try the high-waited look or a nice vintage dress? Or if low-rise is more your thing, contraptions like belts and suspenders are great ways to accessories and stay covered. Yes, you may notice your local rancher looking fab strutting his stuff on the farm, but remember his functional garb has no place on the runway.
