The Lucky Staff Takes On Overalls

"I hate them! I don't think anyone over the age of six should wear either overalls or pigtails. Seeing a grown woman in either is the worst. If you're looking for comfort, a slouchy boyfriend jean should do just fine." - Julia Kalachnikoff, accessories director

Senior Digital Projects Editor

There was a time when I wore overalls—by my own choice. I was in the sixth grade—and obviously, being the sixth grade, I was made fun of. The overalls were put to rest and never spoken of again. Fast-forward to 2012, when I'm sharing a workspace with Ray Siegel at Lucky. One summer, she picked up a pair of Proenza Schouler white linen overalls that completely bested any other overalls ever made. My faith in the workwear garment had been restored. Fast-forward a little more to 2013, when our executive digital editor, Verena, informed us all earlier this week that she was on the hunt for a pair of her own. "Where can I get overalls—today?" she asked us all. The tiniest mention of the garment sparked a debate within our team, which we then posed to the rest of our office—and once the government is back up and running, we'll probably take it to the Hill. In the meantime, click through above to see exactly what Lucky editors think of the polarizing overall.
