Not your average Wardrobe ICONS item, nonetheless one that we continue to see on the catwalk from some of our favourite, most wearable designers, including Isabel Marant, Frame Denim and Chloé. The key to carrying off this trend in a chic way is to not dress it up. Think of your overalls as a pair of jeans and pair them with a simple T-shirt, fine knit or boyfriend shirt with rolled-up sleeves. As a finishing touch add your favourite designer bag and keep the look sporty with a pair of trainers or espadrilles.
This could just as easily be an iconic trend, because it is timeless. We’ve put it into the Transformer category simply because it is an easy, inexpensive way to update a classic. The way to keep your lipstick looking modern is by applying it unlined with a hint of a smudge. For day, stay subtle with a barely-there eye like at Oscar de la Renta. By night, add either a Dolce & Gabbana feline flick or a Topshop Unique-style smoky 80s eye.
