Overalls are the new overalls! Don’t believe me? Just got through any fashion bloggers’s Instagram or Tumblr account and you will see these once shunned ’90s “trousers” have made a strong comeback. Previously, streetwear designers like Cross Colours, a favorite of everyone from Kris Kross to Stevie Wonder, helped the look gain major style points, while The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air managed to make it dope by leaving one strap hanging.

After being brought into the mainstream by fashion icon Patrick Kelly, designers like Balmain and Current/Elliott are creating more tailored silhouettes, and your favorite celebrities know how to modernize this look with accessories and attitude. From music festivals to red carpets and street style, our go-to fashion mavens show us how to reinvent the basic farmhands’s uniform. Paying homage to the days of Tupac, Janet, and ’90s boy bands alike, let’s embrace this nostalgic fashion moment.
