Why and how do you wear overalls?

This poll is about bib overalls (UK: dungarees), shortalls and skirtalls (UK: pinafore). In this poll please read 'overalls' as everything with a bib and shoulder straps. After my polls Which overalls do you own? and Your dream overalls, that focus more what the overalls look like, this poll is more about the wearer.
All questions are about wearing overalls for fashion, so not about protective or work clothes.

Note that even if you do not actively wear overalls, I'd be interested in your opinion about them. Please fill in the first couple of questions.
