how to wear overalls

Got your first pair of overalls and not sure how to style them?  Check out the different ways I like to rock ’em!

Some types of overalls can be harder to style than other.  I have a longer torso than most women so unfortunately not every single pair works for me; so make sure you try them on!  Sometimes adjusting the straps don’t always help, they end up looking baggy and the straps fall down, totally annoying!

My go to with overalls is typically a fitted white tee or crop top.  It’s easy and works with any and all kinds of overalls.

But here I am showing you how to wear overalls with all sorts of different looks!  I love this white button down.  It’s not a crisp, stiff material so it’s comfortable and can be dressy or casual depending what you are going for.  It’s versatile!

I like juxtaposition and overalls are great for a mix and match, opposites attract sort of style.  Typically, overalls are not the most feminine look so I almost always pair them with high heels.  I think it’s a really great balance to be casual but cool with edge and it’s appropriate for almost any event, any time, any where.

Don’t be afraid to layer over top of your overalls too!  Add a jacket, like my FAVORITE leather moto jacket!

Or add a button down that you can also tie around your waist for another look that is super casual and cool.

      Hi Diana! Thank you so much for the comment, you are too sweet! There are so many cute fitted styles out there. My favorite are fitted distressed denim ones. But I also love my fitted faux leather ones too. There are so many fun styles, I hope you find some and rock em!! Thanks for stopping by!

  10. I love that overalls are back!! My SIL was just rocking a pair last night and they’re so cute.

      Overalls are just so much fun! I am so happy that they are back and I can find them everywhere! For a long time it was hard for me to find them, I’ve always been a huge overall fan!

  11. I think one key thing is that the bottom of your overalls fit more like jeans – they are not the same as the shapeless overalls I wore as a kid!

      Yes, that’s so true. There are so many different styles and shapes out there now, they have gotten so much cuter than what we wore as toddlers! 🙂

  12. I have a pair of overalls and I wear them all of the time! I love the white button down top underneath and how they look with converse- I’ve been obsessing over my converse again lately, too!

  13. This is seriously so cute! I have always loved the idea of overalls but am too nervous to try it out. I feel I’m too chubby.

You are bound to find a pair that looks PERFECT on you, trust me 🙂 I listed some at the bottom of my post – don’t be afraid to just try them out. You’ll love them, I promise! Thanks for checking out my blog 🙂

  14. Oh my goodness, I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed overalls (I wore them in the 90’s.) If this really is a thing again, I’m SO in! I love all the looks shown here 😀
