Everyone who's been around me very long knows I love the color green! (It probably has to do with my green eyes.) When I was nineteen, I had a pair of olive green coveralls, very similar to the style of the ones I have on here. Of course, three babies later I haven't been able to fit in those for over 30 years! So, when I was shopping with a client at the Mall of America a couple weeks back, I saw these coveralls (also called broiler suits or flight suits) at the Lucky Store and it took me down memory lane.
After I finished working with my client I decided to go back to see if the coveralls were worth considering.
I wasn't quite sure if after gaining weight this style would still be appealing. But, as I tell my clients, "If you are a pair shape you'll always be a pear shape, even if you gain 50 pounds!" The go-to styles for a bodytype will not change, just the size changes. I was an Apple shape all those years ago and coveralls worked for me and I'm an Apple shape now. So, with that in mind, I tried them on; I liked them. The straight cut of the coveralls followed the straightness of my waistline (kind of like a shift dress would) flattering my shape. And...The Lucky Store was having a crash sale that brought the price down 60%; that helped my decision. What an easy and on-trend look! I bought them.
I paired them with Tortoise shell pumps and Gold hoop earrings - Done!
Coveralls are not just for Apple-shape women. They come in many different styles and cuts that flatter different body shapes. It's worth trying them on and giving them a chance!
