Fashion Trend: Overalls

If you’re looking for a current fashion trend for the summer that’s also a classic, try sporting a pair of overalls. Yes, overalls! This wardrobe staple is not just for toddlers or farmers. Overalls are making a comeback and are a great must-have piece for summer. They are not only fun and flexible, but super comfortable, too!

You can dress them up for a fun poolside party look or dress them down for hanging out with friends. Denim, even various dark and light washes, goes with everything, from pearls to plaid, and if you prefer colors, overalls can be found in neutrals or bright pops of color as well.


Which overalls are right for you? It depends on your personality and where you want to wear them. If you are looking for a fun and funky look, flared leg overalls are super playful. If you’d rather go a little more traditional, you could try an overall in black with a more fitted leg. This type of look is flexible enough to go almost anywhere.


Short overalls are perfect for those hot summer days. You can wear a classic denim or go for a more retro look with a specialty wash. Either way, short overalls keep you cool and comfortable…and in style! Another fun option is skirt overalls, perfect for adding a bit of a dressier touch, but still remaining casual enough for you to relax. Whatever your style and whatever the occasion, there’s an overall perfect for the look you are trying to achieve.


Now, let’s talk accessories! There are literally endless ways to accessorize a pair of overalls. If you’re going casual, try pairing long overalls with a colorful T-shirt, a fun hat and sneakers. You can dress this look up a little by losing the hat and putting your hair in an updo, adding a long necklace and some cute flats. For shorter overalls, go casual with a stretchy Henley, Keds and a baseball cap. For a dressier event, try a flowy, flowery blouse, short heels or flats and lots of bracelets. There are so many combinations of looks that you could easily never wear the same thing twice!


Overalls may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to summer wardrobe staples, but they have a classic feel to them that never really goes out of style. You can make the look your own with accessories and create fun summer outfits that are cool, comfortable and totally stylish!
