Growing up, I harbored a secret crush on a five year old character called Dennis from the Dennis The Menace comic strip. This five year old character Dennis was over energetic, mischievous and yet the most sweet-natured boy in his neighborhood and was forever curious. His yellow blonde hair and the tiny freckles on his face is an imagery I could never get off my head.
This was also a time I had secretly drawn umpteen number of Dennis sketches in his trademark red overalls and the blue-black striped shirt. I had the entire stack of his sketches inside my school-bag.
No wonder, I was always amused by overalls or dungarees as you know it. When it comes to fashion, 90s have made an impressive comeback and I am totally have a 90s moment wearing these trends. A traditional overall isn’t my thing but I am so glad there is a solution to that. Let me introduce you to this least tomboy take on the trend- the overall dress. With it’s dungaree straps and a cute girly skater look at the bottom, it’s the perfect take on the classic Dennis outfit.
