How to wear overalls without looking like a hipster farmer.

Overalls have slowly been creeping back into our closets ever since high fashion brands started sending versions of the farming staple down the runway. It was only a matter of time before they landed in your local shopping mall, but with so many retailers trying their hand at the immersing trend, it’s easy to lose your way.

The key to the modern overall is to stay away from anything too baggy and pair them with a feminine blouse or  T-shirt (a classic white button-up would work well too). Try to steer clear of plaid and tank-tops. Your look could easily turn into a Halloween costume if you choose the wrong top.

Check out some of my favorites here:

This low-rise distressed version is definitely for a more daring lady. Pair it with a tight t-shirt or cropped-top.

Reminiscent of a catsuit, this is not your mothers overall. Wear it with whatever you can get away with. The cat-eye sunnies and red pumps are highly recommended.

  1. Love the Forever 21 first one and Nastygal, I think it’s definitely important to make sure there’s a feminine pop when your wear overalls otherwise it can all go wrong! Great post! x
