Overalls Are A Top Men’s Trend Just Don’t Call It A Onesie
Jumpers, rompers, overalls, onesies… call them what you want, but the fashion world won’t stop obsessing about them. To say that the traditional work wear garment has become a sartorial look in men’s fashion would be something of an exaggeration. However, if the Men’s runway shows are any indication, then you are going to see a lot more of them come fall. As recently as this summer, the romper otherwise known as the mansie entered designer status and has now has become a budding trend. Sure it’s a small subset of the casual weekend looks that dominate the current men’s trends. However, this fall it’s a shared inspiration across both sides of the Atlantic and prominent enough to be dubbed a men’s trend. The one piece jumpsuit was seen amongst the top men’s shows in New York, Milan and Paris with potential to be carried into next year.
At the recent menswear shows, several designers referenced mechanic-like overalls, showcasing them in chambray, corduroy and and acid washed denim among other fabrications. To test drive a pair keep it simple and monochromatic. Or add a cool pair of trainers to maximize the overall effect of a monochromatic ensemble by keeping all other clothing in the same dark tones. See a few of our faves below to determine which designers did it best.
