Overalls Are Not In Style

Are Overalls In Style? NO!

Pink Slip Fashion can already feel the indignant, if not rage, of you muttering quickly at your computer “Whaddaya mean DITCH the overalls!”

Is this even still a question: “Are Overalls in Style?” The answer is NO!

But let’s get real, WHO’s wearing overalls and most importantly WHY? 

Overalls seems to be the 2013 trend that’s “back with a vengeance,” but outside of waif models on the cover of Nylon, or Jen Aniston, I haven’t seen overalls executed well in any to-be-envied style.

In fact, most times they create an unflattering silhouette—unless you have a naturally boyish figure—and though comfy can come off as a bad casual Friday spin-off.

Did I mention this style isn’t even versatile to wear to work. “Maybe it’s just a weekend look?” you say. But the truth is, who’s wearing overalls on a weekend outing to the movies or dinner? 

Though trendy on models and celebrities, as a day-to-day style, we’re giving overalls the PINK SLIP!

8 Fall Looks That Are Never Going Out of Style

8 Looks that are NEVER Going Out of Style!

Pink Slip Fashion normally covers the latest trends that are going out of style. Yet, as we brace ourselves for brisk fall weather, you may be thinking it’s time to revamp your wardrobe to kick off the season.

The truth is, your wardrobe may not need much of a makeover. If you do a little digging through those out of fashion knee socks, platform booties, and military jackets circa Fall 2012 fashion trends, you may uncover some classic pieces you didn’t realize you had.

Here’s a list of 8 Looks that will NEVER get the PINK SLIP:

  • Double Breasted, Belted Trench
  • Black Leather Jacket
  • Neutral Colored Cape
  • Pencil Skirt
  • Slouchy Cable Knit Sweater
  • Leather Riding Boots
  • Quilted Handbag with Strap
  • Flat Slip-on Loafers

Vertical Stripe Black & White Leggings

Toss the Black & White Leggings!

Which look is out of fashion this week? You guessed it!

Stop clowning around with jester pants & toss the black & white leggings. Go sporty with a racer stripe instead. Ideal for 9-5 style or a night out, a racer stripe pant is the perfect blend of casual, cool & polished.

No offense Beetlejuice (Beetlejuice…Beetlejuice…nothing), but black and white striped pants are getting the PINK SLIP.

Wear Plaid Fashionably

What NOT to Wear to an Interview

Pink Slip Fashion knows that when you’ve just landed an interview, there’s a ton of prep work involved—practicing answering questions, researching the company, and putting together a topnotch portfolio.

However, one thing in particular needs careful attention: your wardrobe!

There are the inevitable taboos like sloppy attire or sporting heels appropriate for a night out instead of the office. However, the number one offender seems to be the mini skirt!

Pink Slip the above-the-knee options and go for something mature and classic like a pencil skirt or straight leg trouser in a neutral other than black, like gray, khaki, or even navy.

Picking a more flattering option will leave a lasting first impression and may even score you a second interview or the job!

Is Your Shoe Wardrobe Falling Flat? (That May Not Be a Bad Thing)

Pink Slip your platforms and high heels this season; they’re going out of style! Get low with your sweet and chic flats in all varieties instead: pretty pointy toes, bow-topped patent leather picks, lattice pattern peepers and many more.

Check out other comfy and on-trend low-to-the ground options at Elle.

Nautical Nonsense Decked by Colorful Stripes

We’re giving nautical-style stripes THE PINK SLIP. The once popular and preppy fashion statement, seafaring stripes was in last season but is no longer making a splash on the runway. Instead opt for pantone shade stripes, chunky wave patterns, stark contrasts, and colorblock to liven up this classic, (a)symmetrical pattern.
