OverallTrend

Summer is all about relaxing, and your style should be no different. A pair of denim overalls is the epitome of relaxed summer style. Oversize or 70’s-style, it’s a go-to for a comfy and chic look. Its stylish cousin, the overall dress, has made quite a few appearances as well, but it’s not nearly as versatile if you like spontaneous summer romps like me. True to their name, you can throw overalls literally over anything: a bikini at the beach, a bandeau and heels for drinks, or even a sweater and booties to transition into fall. Fashionistas are all over the overall trend, and you should be too!

This comedienne’s got more than jokes, she’s got Style. Melissa McCarthy isn’t as well known for her fashion choices as she is for her acting, but that might change with the upcoming launch of her clothing line next month. The actress actually studied textiles before moving to NYC with friend Brian Atwood (yup, designer Brian Atwood), where she forewent finishing at FIT to pursue stand-up. Over 20 years later her designer dreams are coming true and we finally get to see a rather over-shadowed side to Melissa. To say her Style is bold is an understatement. She’s fond of trends and patterns, which she keeps sophisticated by opting for monochromatic palettes and muted colors. From sneaker wedges to pussy bows, her Style is a healthy mix of classic and edgy. Take a tip from Melissa and mix it up a bit– even if you end up laughing at yourself, fashion is all about having fun.

Summer’s not over yet, meaning there are plenty of beach days still ahead. With that in mind, this Sunday I’m sighing for a beach babe hair moment. Beach hair gets big, and wavy, and salty, and there’s nothing you can do about it– but that’s the most beautiful thing. Embracing the natural rebel in your hair is the most liberating feeling, making for some seriously stylish confidence. Forget the big hat and unleash the beast– these waves are your best beach accessory.

Sunglasses may be a warm-weather necessity, but only mirrored sunglasses give you that cool factor all year round. Truly a statement accessory, mirrored sunnies come in all different shades–especially neon–to make you stand out. All the cool kids are doing it; with the help of these sunnies they can attract attention to themselves without anyone actually seeing them, creating the ultimate element of mystery…throw a pair of these on and you’re Almost Famous.

The reality TV star turned fashion mogul has come a long way since her days on The Simple Life. Still as hilarious but a little more grown up, Nicole Richie’s personality is as spunky as her Style. I like to think of her style as bad-ass boho, a great mix of vintage silhouettes with rocker details, not unlike her line House of Harlow. She’s by far the only person I have ever seen rock the lavender hair trend if that’s any indication of her soft yet outspoken style — and that’s no easy feat. Also a mom, Nicole sets the bar high for effortless style while always looking comfy and confident in anything she wears. Maybe her life has never been simple, but take a tip from Nicole (who’s never liked jeans) and stick to simple items you know you can wear all day for lasting comfort and confidence.

With the second installment of her collaboration with AG jeans hitting stores last week, I’m already sighing for the fabulous Fall collection. True to her seventies aesthetic, the designs feature high-waists, flares, lots of denim, and a personal fave of mine, corduroy– not to mention overalls and rompers. This chick makes anything look cool; it’s even almost affordable to dress like the It girl herself…head to AG Jeans for a blast from the past and, let’s face it, your fashion future.
