I've taken it up a notch and acquired a pair of full-blown overalls. Well, two actually. One denim and one velvety, black velour. I can't stop wearing them and I have a feeling I'll keep wearing them even when the weather gets colder. If you're not convinced yet, here are some points I'd like you to consider.
Style them NOW:
1. Pair them with a crop top
This is the best way to wear both trends! If you're insecure about your stomach, the overall bib hides all that. Plus, the tight fitting fabric of the crop top and peek of skin balances out the relaxed slouch of the overalls
2. Wear a hat
A sun hat or baseball cap are both cute options.
3. Cuff 'em
I am not super tall, so I prefer my overalls cuffed. This also gives them a relaxed, boyfriend-jeans look and shows off the most slender part of your leg.
Style them LATER:
1. Collared shirts 4ever
A white, collared shirt is my favorite way to style overalls. This one has little blue polka dots that didn't show up as well as I'd hoped. They're a little girly without being too frilly.
Add layers of detail with a textured coat or scarf. It also makes the look more cozy on chilly days.
3. Another hat!
A felted wool hat adds a bit of bohemian style and a lot of warmth.
4. Add elegance & height
Overalls are a lot like maxi dresses: when fitted right, they can make you look super tall and slender. Heels, obviously, will make this effect even more exaggerated. A pair of heeled booties would be even better (and warmer), but I don't own any :(
Have these styling tips convinced you yet? Good! You can actually buy the overalls featured in this look!
