We love when childhood favorites make comebacks as stylish wardrobe staples. The overall jean is no exception, but this is one piece you’ll need to pull off with specific style cues in order not to look like you’re simply regressing to the days of early Nickelodeon cartoons and Bazooka gum. Honestly, WTF did a round-up of chic ways to wear them, our favorites of which are below.
See more chic overall action here, and stay tuned for some of our personal favorite options on the market!

Actress Keira Knightley stepped out in London recently showing an alarming denial of her grown up status. While the pair of Citizens of Humanity overall jeans she wore could have been cool, the rest of the outfit translated into tween-with-a-massive-allowance. She wore the jeans with a striped knit top and a mini Chanel purse with converse sneakers and black framed glasses. Anyone out there familiar with Tommy February6? Yeeeah…. This is a “how not to wear it” post.
Tips for pulling off overalls without looking like a 7-year-old include investing in a pair that are tailored (or having us tailor them), wearing them with heels, ditching the kiddie purse and polishing the rest of your look.
If you think you can handle it, grab a pair of Citizens of Humanity overall jeans. And don’t worry, Keira, we still love you. We just want you to learn from your mistakes.
