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!
And the final look is just with a basic sweater and some easy loafers. This look was feeling a little too simple, so I added some dark framed glasses and it all came together.
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??
I love these looks! I have been looking for age appropriate ways to overalls and you nailed it. What color/wash are your overalls? Thanks.
Thank you! The ones I’m wearing are “Light stone!”
I am ALL about the overalls. Haha! They’re especially practical when I go to photo shoots because those pockets are everything! My biggest problem is remembering which pocket I’ve put everything in. Haha!
Definitely a fan of that striped tee! What size did you get from Boden?
I’m in a four!
Those overalls are cute! I’ve been dying for a pair for a couple summers now! I’m totally ordering those ones!
You’ll love them!
You’re looking lovely top to bottom in these 4 styles!
“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.” THIS IS ME!! Oh my goodness, yes!! I relate!!
I love these overalls! Now that I know your glasses are fake, it makes me giggle whenever I see them. Got to say though, they look great!
Hi! Where is your gray bag from in these photos?
