Throwback Thursday: The Overall Comeback

Thursday, June 27, 2013

As a child I sported overalls on a regular basis. Now 12 years later the denim one-piece is no longer just for the farm or the 10 and younger crowd. This look is either a yes or no for some, but overall I think the trend is pretty dang cute.

You can easily compare overalls to boyfriend jeans. They aren’t the most feminine and they’re fairly casual, so I suggest pairing the one-piece with a pair of girly sandals or strappy stilettos. Any shoe will work, but I opted for a pair of platform wedges. 
A few personal Dos & Don’ts
  • Do try one side un-buttoned
  • Don’t pair your overalls with a plaid shirt unless you’re headed to the rodeo
  • Do wear collared tops, bralettes, t-shirts and tanks underneath
  • Don’t buy overalls that are too tight, keep them slightly fitted or loose
  • Do add accessories that are modern and stylish
  • Don’t be afraid to try overalls in fabrics other than denim

I styled my overalls with a bralette and a pair of platform wedges. I then accessorized with a hair bow, SHWOOD sunglasses, and my favorite new designer brand for accessories, Devoted. The Devoted bracelets are the perfect pieces to create the ultimate arm party.

So what are your thoughts on the trend? If you're feeling bold give it a try, I think your inner child will thank you. ;)

In good faith, Tess
