When overalls made a come back about a year and a half ago, I was definitely hesitant to embrace the 90’s style. Over time, I kept admiring the different ways they were being worn and if you’ve been following along, you know that I am obsessed with wearing denim, denim on denim, jumpsuits, and rompers, so overalls kind of fit right in. They’re basically a combination of all of those. The truth is, overalls look great on all different body types and can be styled so many different ways. This outfit was worn while in NYC and is just one example of how I’ve been rocking them. Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post and I’ll show you more outfit inspiration. In the meantime, here are my 5 Tips on Wearing Overalls:

  1. Fit is Key: Not only are overalls back, but they’ve gotten a complete upgrade since our childhood days. I personally prefer a slimmer fit. It’s the most flattering, especially for curvy women like me. If you’re slim and narrow, you can probably pull off a baggier style. A lot of overalls have adjustable straps which makes it easy to tailor them to your body. Cuffing them on the bottom is a great look, especially if you’re petite, or opt for a cropped pair.
  2. Layer: Adding a blazer, jacket, vest, or opened button down shirt can make your outfit look more polished and sophisticated.
  3. Heels: I don’t recall anyone ever wearing overalls with heels back in the day. Try a pair of stilettos, wedges, or booties for a more chic and adult look.
  4. Go the Non-Traditional Route: Still don’t think you can pull off overalls? Try a colored pair or a different type of material like faux leather. In addition to pants, overalls come in so many styles such as shorts, skirts, dresses, and capris.
  5. Accessorize: Play around with different accessories and choose wisely depending on the type of look you’re going for. For a more casual vibe, stick to delicate pieces with a fabulous pair of sunnies. A fun necklace or statement earrings can add the perfect amount of feminine detail. Studded flats, a fringe bag and leather jacket will give you that confident, cool girl appearance.
