Overalls go in and out of fashion at the drop of a hat (or should that be a strap?), and at times it can be challenging to draw the line between pairs that are chic, and those that are better left to carpenters. But model Tilda Lindstam, snapped during fashion month, proved that she has no trouble distinguishing the two.The Swedish catwalk star paired her slouchy corduroy set with a polka dot shirt, brogues, and a bright red 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. Her look leaves nothing to complain about, so we’ve rounded up four of favorite overalls below.

Denim is no doubt having a moment. Models Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss brought the Canadian tuxedo back in full force during New York fashion week in September, when they took to the streets in denim-on-denim looks that landed them on style blogs across the Web. And at Nina Ricci’s latest Resort presentation, Peter Copping dared to pair a deconstructed blue jean miniskirt with a ladylike cropped jacket of the same material. From Stella McCartney, Balmain, Alexandre Birman, and more, here are six pieces to add a little more denim to your wardrobe (without having to resurrect your decade-old Levi’s numbers).

Fresh off a week and a half tour of Gap stores across the U.S., creative director Patrick Robinson was at the Fifth Avenue flagship this morning talking up the brand’s new premium denim. “They’re the best-fitting jeans in the world. That’s a big statement, I know,” he said. Robinson also told us, “They’ll change your life.” Hmm. But it sounds like he just might’ve done the work to back it up. The six new women’s and seven new men’s styles were a year and a half in the making and are designed to put Gap back into the denim game. Once upon a time—before Diesel, Seven for All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, True Religion, J Brand, etc., etc.—Gap and Levi’s owned it. To get back to that place, Robinson recruited wash experts, incorporated hand details, and retrained the technical people in Gap’s factories. The most important change? “Nailing the fit,” he explained. “I heard over and over again from customers that it’s about fit. If the jeans don’t give her a rock star butt, she’s not buying.” Gap was giving free pairs to blog editors, but the $69.50 price for a pair of Very Skinnys in olive green with riding pant seaming across the thighs was so right, I would’ve happily paid for them.
