Feminize the Look

If you are going for slouchy, roomy overalls, then balance the baggy look with a ‘feminine’ top. Off-shoulder tops, lacy tees and frilly shirts will give your onesies an air of elegance.


Be Colorful

A denim overall is a safe choice, but if you want to be a fashion maven, you have got to break out of the box! Ditch the denims for colorful or printed onesies. A leather jumper such as the one below can take the usual look to casual chic.
