It’s time to channel your inner child as the 90s classics and “Full House” days are making a serious comeback! We are currently obsessing over the denim overall trend that is going to be a huge hit this coming summer. Take note from these street style babes and wear a striped or basic tee underneath adding a touch of grunge with shirts tied around the waist and bucket bags. Also, throw on a pair of white cons or docs and you’re ready to hit the streets. This season it’s all about experimenting and having a bit of fun with fashion so why not try the Tallow Pineapples Overall or choose a leather, white or floral pair for a quirky alternate to denim. Denim overalls are boy-meets-girl cool, effortless and fun!
