Jumpsuits and overalls have been on the “must-have” list for months and now seem to have reached the peak of their popularity. This really is the perfect time to wear them! So if you are already searching for a great denim onesie then check out this [search]Frankie B.[/search] Hipster Overall with Leather Strap in Japan Blue – it might just be exactly what you’re looking for.
By the way, does this piece look familiar to you? You may have seen it on celebs like Vanessa Hudgens and Meagan Good who wore them not once but twice to Bieber’s movie premier and an “Anchorman 2” promo event (love her fabulous vamp style in that movie!). These girls love the Frankie B. Hipster Overall for a reason – it’s really great! Often times it can be challenging to make overalls look chic and classy and not too cutsie, juvenile or flat-out country like a farm girl on the way to milk her cow. Frankie B. did a great job of creating a sexy and stylish look by combining a slim silhouette, basic indigo wash with light hand sanding and minor distressing and the edgy detail of genuine leather straps with a decorative back zipper. Oh and how cool is the zipper front closure that goes all the way up?! Much better than tired, old-school buttons!
I always enjoy Frankie B. jeans and find their fit very suitable for me. This overall, which I assume is based on their classic low-rise skinnies, is just as great. Slim from the waist down the bottom part is body hugging and gives a nice shape to your legs and tush. I like that the waistband isn’t too tight and doesn’t cinch you into a giant human muffin 🙂 What can be worse than a muffin top spilling out of your pants?!
The denim is a typical blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex and is very-very soft. It feels really comfy and pleasant to the skin. It has nice shape retention and won’t stretch out. As I said before the adjustable straps are made of genuine black leather and are lined with plaid flannel (another cool detail that I almost forgot to mention!). With that comes “Dry Clean Only” on the care tag which might be an inconvenience vs. machine wash but that’s not really a big deal – this overall is worth it!
I read on some web-site (revolveclothing.com maybe?) that Frankie B. is known to run small with a recommendation to size up when ordering. I couldn’t disagree more! All of their jeans I’ve tried on as well as this overall consistently fit true to the size chart. So don’t hesitate and go with your usual size.
What can I say – Frankie B. “nailed” it with their Hipster Overall with Leather Strap in Japan Blue! Really cool and stylish, not too literal with a twist of the brand’s sexy flare this special piece is perfect for the effortless and chic Spring/Summer season. I can see myself wearing it A LOT, how about you?!
