The Overall Comeback

It’s official, the overalls are coming back this season. I remember wearing them when I was in elementary school I believe. This season, overalls are not the same old boring, denim ones. They are new, in a modern type of way, with prints and solids in various colors. I like to think of them as rompers with straps.

Did you know overalls were used as protective clothing for work years ago? It’s crazy how fashion 10 years ago is coming back. Just think 20 years down the road, the fashion today will most likely come again in the following years. That’s the fashion world for you! :)

I am on the search for some cute overalls now, if you see any, feel free to share them via commenting! I’d love to see and perhaps buy it, if I like it!

Haute Rocking High Heel Shoes at this year’s Met Ball 2013

Featured

Stepping out in high fashion means putting the right foot, and the right footwear, first.

New York City’s 2013 Met Ball was one of the biggest nights in fashion for the entire year, and the stars did not disappoint. Well, not many of them. This year’s exhibit tracks Punk: Chaos to Couture, and the evening’s theme makes it clear that the coming year’s style trends will continue to explore the wide potential of Punk influence on fashion.

 

But some fans and followers were disappointed that certain celebrities didn’t take the theme far enough. Others felt that the stars didn’t truly shine by failing to be truly bold, opting instead for a pre-packaged Punk vibe that ended up feeling awkwardly antiseptic. While there are some basic and stereotypical ways to dress punk for a high school Halloween party, really embracing Punk’s place in fashion requires diving in head first, and not just on spiky hair.

For some, the idea of Punk fashion may be intrinsically unglamorous, but you needn’t look far to see how celebrities and their design teams were able to make the counterculture of Punk into a bold and haute showcase. Flip through any slideshow from the night or Best and Worst review with accompanying gallery, and

you’ll see that while pulling off a full wardrobe of Haute Punk was a challenge for many, those who succeeded started a solid foundation with their footwear.

 

Even simple black – or even soft pink – dresses were accentuated into the evening’s proper tone through selecting the right shoes. Where some full outfits did not seem to have gotten the memo, in many cases simply picking the right celebrity shoes were able to redeem an otherwise uneventful – and un-event-worthy – ensemble. High heel shoes as well as high heel boots were definitely in, but it was not enough to simply rise up on heels. Across the red carpet, some form of ornamentation or edgy stylization was certainly de rigueur.

 

Edgy meant evocative, racy, sexy, despite most of the evening’s edginess being focused purely on the feet. The only curves that made fashion headlines seemed to be the arch of the foot, as even the simplest gowns were brought to life with bold and colorful shoe selections. Similarly, choosing the right footwear can bring your fashion fantasies to bold and brilliant life. An edgy upstairs isn’t that difficult; just embrace the natural pikes and tears that your inner punk calls for. To really lock the look down, seek out seriously bold footwear from affordable brands like Pleaser and Demonia.

File this red carpet fashion review under “Better late than never”. I meant to post this early last week but coulda-woulda-shoulda….our bestie’s bachelorette took precedence and the blog took a backseat last week. But I’m back baby! And I have a few thoughts on the so-called punk fashions at the recent Met Ball, with the theme Punk: From Chaos to Couture.

In a nutshell: I found the fashion overall super underwhelming compared to years passed. I’m usually salivating at every second ensemble but this year I found myself really reaching to choose my faves. And even with the ladies pictured looking the best in my opinion, something was clear – the theme of “punk” was largely misunderstood, totally ignored or interpreted in an altogether too obvious way. I get all the spikes and black lace, but would have loved a more daring or modern interpretation of the punk subculture…
