I’m so excited to be launching a new series this month, I’m calling it my how to style series because that’s straightforward. Each week I’ll be choosing one piece to style several different ways. Many of the pieces that I’m wearing are from my fall capsule wardrobe that I launched last week, and several of them, you probably already have in your closet. My goal is to help you make better use of the stuff you already own and help you to figure out which pieces are worth the investment!
This week I’m featuring overalls and I’m absolutely in love with them. They’re so fun and can be worn a gazillion ways—dressed up or down! I’m wearing this pair, but I’ve rounded up a few other pairs too. I just ordered this denim pair and I can’t wait for those to arrive. The black is a bit easier to dress up in my opinion, but if you’re a casual kind of gal, denim works just perfectly too!
4 Ways to Wear Overalls
Overalls with a Sweater
This first look was probably my favorite, but they’re all pretty good. I love the heel paired with the overalls because it makes it more grown-up, but still fun! These day high heels from Everlane are so comfortable and higher than their day heel which I also love!
I got this sweater during my shopping day at Evereve and I’m so in love with it! Heads up, it’s REALLY warm, so it’ll be perfect when the temperatures really drop. I love the color paired with the black overalls too.
My final tip for sweaters and overalls—don’t go too chunky because then it’ll make your midsection look bulky when you try to tuck them in!
Overalls with a Tee and Cardigan
I feel like if I worked at a tech start up, this would be an appropriate work outfit. This would also be a perfect mom uniform if I swapped out the heels for sneakers. At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with a simple white tee and a camel cardigan!
Overalls with Chambray
I love a good chambray shirt and this one has been my favorite for years—I’m so happy J.Crew is still making it. Black jeans and denim are a favorite look of mine already (see this post) and it looks extra cute with the overalls.
Overalls with Stripe Tee & Flats
Last, but not least! This look is actually tied for my favorite! It’s so simple, but proves that black and white doesn’t have to be boring at all. I think most of us probably have a striped tee in our closet, so get creative and mix and match with different colored stripes too!
I hope I’ve inspired you to start wearing your overalls more, or finally get a pair!
