    The Collins Overalls are a youthful, fun take on the utility trend. Wear it over a tshirt in Summer, a sweater in Winter, or just by itself, it’s a flexible all-in-one outfit. In sturdy plain fabrics it’s a wardrobe staple, and in bright patterns it’s a statement piece. No one will believe you made this yourself! The Collins Overalls are a loose fitting design with an exposed zip in centre-front. The overalls feature useful hip pockets and a straight-leg silhouette.
