I was born in the 80’s and grew up in the 90’s, so it’s safe to say, this isn’t the first time in my life that I’ve had a pair of overalls. Of course, I’m significantly more fashionable now than I was in the 90’s, but this outfit brings back a lot of memories from my elementary school days. When I wear them, I feel like I need to blast some Spice Girls music and break out my old Sailor Moon dolls! Retro, much?
I’ll be honest. I wasn’t 100% sold when I first tried them on. I had all sorts of thoughts running through my head: Am I too old for these? Are they flattering? Do I look like an 8-year-old? The answer to all of these questions may be yes, but you know what? Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Scroll through for my tips on how to wear overalls fashionably!
How to Wear Overalls Fashionably
Keep the rest of your outfit simple
Don’t over-think the rest of your outfit. If you’re looking for another reason to buy a white t-shirt (or three)…I’ve just given you one.
Wear sneakers or flats
Add minimalistic accessories
If you’re looking for an excuse to wear that delicate necklace, or leather choker, try pairing it with your overalls. It’s those small touches that helps to elevate your outfit from childish to trendy.
Go with a bold lip
Another trick to look like a (fashionable) grown-up in your overalls? Try going with a bold lip! In putting this look together, I felt like something was missing…until I added a swipe of my favourite bright lipstick.
Don’t spend too much
If you’re not sure about the idea of wearing overalls as an adult, why not pick up an inexpensive pair to start with? You can see if you like how you feel in them, before making a big investment.
