3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Overalls

As you may have already seen, dungarees a.k.a 'overalls' are slowly seeping back into high-street trends, mainly of the denim variety (1994, anyone?). But! For all of you runway-savvy lot you've probably already noticed this is a take on the like's of 3.1 Phillip Lim, whose leather overalls were seen on nearly every editor and blogger who could get their hands on them at fashion week (at £1200, they sold out within 48 hours on Netaporter and Shopbop!).
You may have also seen a month or so ago Whistles did their own take on the leather overalls at £375; still steep in price but again, they sold out pretty quickly.

The best alternative i've found? These Zara Leather Overalls pretty much tick all the boxes of the Phillip Lim ones (note the black hardware, cropped tailoring et all), and the lowest price i've found yet at £239. (If you don't want to invest in a real leather pair, you can get these NastyGal Faux leather overalls, which come in at just under £60!)
