In true utilitarian fashion, overalls were initially designed to offer protection for construction site workers and farmers. However, fast forward to now, overalls or dungarees have become widely popular in mainstream culture, even being produced by some luxury and high-end designers too. They’re no longer just viewed as attire for the blue-collar worker but a staple in contemporary fashion.

The workwear suit was created in the 1890s by Levi Strauss and Jacob W. Davis at Levi Strauss & Co, as they wanted to offer labourers an effortlessly cool and comfy uniform. Enter, overalls – the item of clothing that allows you to move around while also offering an additional layer of protection, thanks to its durable materials. It began to serve as an emblem for rail-roaders and farmers in the depression era.

However, the baggy workwear suit rebranded in the 1980s and ’90s as it was embraced by the hip-hop industry. Artists were fashioning denim overalls with one shoulder unfastened, and with now the 90s and Y2K fashion trends currently re-emerging, it seems overalls are once again ‘cool’.
