Lily Aldridge Makes a Case for Flared Overalls

Just because overalls were one of your sartorial staples back when you were still wearing pigtails and pinafores doesn’t mean they don’t have a place in your adult wardrobe.  Just look at Lily Aldridge, who elevated the look of her grown-up dungarees with the help of a flirty off-the-shoulder top, pastel accessories and a sophisticated red statement lip.  Seriously, this could be the sleekest a pair of overalls has ever looked on a human being.

Spotted at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday, the Victoria’s Secret Angel stepped off the tarmac wearing a pair of Stella McCartney’s flared overalls in light-wash denim— notice their perfect hip-hugging shape. Underneath, she wore a white collar-baring long-sleeve tee that offered just a hint of sensuality, adding a pale pink satchel decorated with a fluffy blue bag charm for a touch of feminine whimsy. It’s a tricky look to master for some, but as always, Lily gets it right.

You Won’t Believe How Affordable Gigi Hadid’s Coachella Looks Are

There’s a reason why Gigi Hadid has become a style icon as of late. No matter the occasion, the 19-year-old supermodel always appears flawlessly put-together and totally situation appropriate.
