I am excited to get back to this series! There are a few items in my closet I am loving for summer that are getting a lot of mileage. And by that, I mean an item I am able to wear a few different ways. So in June, I will be featuring and styling a couple different clothing articles as part of my “Outfit of the Day” Series. First up? Denim overalls.
Some of you might be raising an eyebrow right now! Denim overalls? As an adult? And not living out west? YES! Denim overalls are a great back up to denim shorts in the summer. Similar to a jumpsuit or a dress, they are a “one and done” option. Easy to throw on and comfortable to wear, I love having a pair in my closet. Ironically, I actually found the pair I own here, in a store not necessarily frequented too often by adults-Forever 21! Trust me though, they are a great pair of denim overalls! What I love about them is the wash; soft, light fabric; and relaxed fit though the legs. They fit true to your denim size.
Despite the fact that this pair of overalls come from a millennial store, I find there are some do’s and don’ts to take into consideration when wearing them as an adult.
Styling Denim Overalls as an Adult
In order to keep your style more elevated, I avoid wearing overalls with a tank top on its own; a graphic tee or a plaid shirt underneath; or flip flops or Birkenstocks on the feet. Instead, I opt for textures, layers and classic staple pieces to wear with them.
I love a great summer knit! And a summer knit worn underneath overalls? One of my favorite looks! It provides just the right amount of texture and style to make your denim overalls look effortless yet chic! Round out this look with a pair of suede wrap sandals and a woven bag and you are instantly adulting in overalls! Items featured (and similar) linked below.
Another way to pull off denim overalls as an adult is incorporating classic style pieces. Taking a variation of a classic white blouse and white loafers adds just the right amount of sophistication. Top it off with a white clutch, and this look lends to the perfect luncheon outfit. Items featured (and similar) linked below.
Finally, I love a layered look with denim overalls. Any basic layer will do underneath the overalls (currently loving the Maxwell Audio tank top here) but the key is to layer it with an open cardigan and in my opinion, the longer, the better! This open knit cardigan (similar here) is a seasonal favorite of mine! Items featured (and similar) linked below.
