I’ve been debating about the overall trend for like two years now. I’ve seen them coming back and I just wasn’t sure if I could do it. I wasn’t the most fashionable little girl, and I wore overalls long after they were out, so just the thought of wearing them again brought back some memories of my most awkward years and I wasn’t sure I was interested in re-living those.
But the more I saw them, the more I liked them. Except that I couldn’t find a pair that worked for me until I found this pair. The fitted legs, the cropped length, and the low cross back were the things that sold me. I feel like they’re fun, but a little more grown up than a typical pair of overalls.
Try these four ways to wear overalls!
For a summery look, I paired the overalls with a bright yellow flutter sleeve tee. It adds a little bit of femininity to the masculinity of the overalls, and then I completed the look with a pop of stripes with these lace up espadrille flats.
This polka dot blouse is one of my favorites, and it was the perfect lightweight blouse to wear under my overalls. I wanted a little unexpected addition, and the neck scarf was the perfect thing. I finished the look with a pair of simple cross sandals.
You guys know I love a good striped tee, and pairing it under my overalls just had to be done. I chose a slim fit tee, and finished the look with some fun, perforated sneakers. I also love that in the cooler months, you can add a jacket right over the top of your overalls!
I think the key with any overalls look is to pair it with sophisticated, feminine pieces. If you pair overalls with a simple tee or tank, keep your shoes more purposeful and age appropriate. If your shoes are simple sandals, add a more sophisticated blouse. Think you can do it??
