how to wear overalls

Last year I shared a pair of overalls I bought in this post, and to be completely honest – I have been really surprised about how frequently I’ve actually worn them. Way more than I thought I would (Christian is reading this and shaking his head right now)!

Since then, I’ve expanded my overalls collection to a few more variations of the trend, and I’m sharing some of my favorite styles at the bottom of this post.  I shared in this Instagram that when I pulled out this outfit, Christian asked “is that your milkin’ outfit?” Then when I showed up in Laguna my photographer said, “you look like a Mississippi farmer.”

And I replied to both with, “DON’T CARE. I love my outfit!” Haha – I’ve been like this my entire life. I think it’s the combination of being a strong personality (this was recently confirmed in a really fun aura reading… I was full on red, aka “powerful,” passionate and competitive… am I really this aggressive? Don’t answer that.) and genuinely just loving getting dressed and putting together outfits.  I mean, just ask my high school friends and teachers some of the ensembles I showed up in. Some major hits and misses, people. If you’re that girl too – you do you gf!

SO, if you are into overalls and want to try this trend, here’s my advice: roll up the ankles and show a little skin. I think overalls look great with heels or flats, and when it comes to what top to wear – I think a crop top, a knotted tee or something with a low neckline is a great contrast. If you style something bulky or thick under overalls, you’re going to feel like the Michelin man.

I also think overalls look great with both shoulders hooked or even just one shoulder strap. I wore it both ways in this post so you could see the different vibes each strap option gives. Play with it and make it your own! Be your best Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. When I was your age….

    Okay, I don’t think I’m THAT much older than you. BUT, being a child of the 90’s and coming of age during that time, overalls were just a thing. I don’t think much of them, either way, but I like what you’ve done here. Everything 90’s is trending, so why not? In the name of FASHION! (I’m all about the GIFs, so it’s worth a look.)

  2. BC of a picture I saw with you wearing overalls, I went for it and wore mine on fourth of July!! Major success!!! Thanks for inspiring!

  3. I love that you don’t care what anyone else thinks about your outfits, I’m the same! I’ve never tried the overall look, but you make it look so cute….I just might have to try.
