It’s been a hot sec since we had a fashion post around here, and there have been all the trends popping up left + right lately – specifically, trends that were a thing back in the 90’s. Overalls are a new staple in my closet that I am loving, thanks the effortlessly touch they bring to an outfit. But deciding what to wear them with can be a bit of a head-scratcher. You want to match the effortless vibe while avoiding looking sloppy. Read below on ideas of how to rock this trend.

How to wear overalls:
- With a tight layer underneath. Any fitted tee or more form-fitting top will do! But to keep things from looking too baggy, especially if your overalls are a baggier/boyfriend fit in the legs, you’ll want to stay snug up top!
- Opt for a striped or patterned shirt underneath for added dimension, or another fabric for texture. The easiest way to make things interesting fast is by adding some dimension and/or texture to the look, and something non-solid will do just the trick! Stripes, leopard print, or even a fun lace or crochet top will not only add interest, but it’ll likely add a stylish flair that you otherwise might not.
- Fit is key. If you have a longer or shorter torso, try and find a pair of overalls with adjustable straps so there is no gapping (or pulling) in the crotch area.
- Choose the right accessories. To avoid looking like a toddler in overalls, leave the bows, backpacks and pigtails at home. Instead, go for a statement necklace, a fun silk scarf, or heels this will make your look more grown up and feminine.
