The first image that popped into my mind when I thought of overalls was a child wearing a baggy pair with dorky wire-rimmed glasses, wearing a floppy flower hat. But lately, I’ve seen some girls on the streets seriously rocking overalls in a really fierce way. They have made overalls look grungy, glam, or even a little bohemian. And that made me totally re-think them as a fashion item. There’s the Long Denim Overalls which can be oversized, tight, ’70’s style, with fuller upper part (covering up a great deal of your top for ex.) or more cut-out for you to show off your tank top, bandeau or those tight abs. The Short Denim Overall is the girly cute style that can be treated like a dress: if it’s loose and relaxed it’ll look amazing with a tight top, loads of bling and shades. If it’s tight you might want to balance it with more understated accessories. Both styles look great and the choice of denim color, texture and fabric is limitless.
How to wear denim overalls without looking like a farmer? Wear them with a striped shirt, or a basic blouse (don’t do plaid) with the neck open and sleeves rolled up, in a plain-ish color or fun print. Plain white tee also works very good. For a more sophisticated look add a leather jacket or blazer on top. If you’re doing the blazer thing, wearing it as an editor’s cape is a great option. And when it comes to footwear, heels make it look urban and hot, sneakers make it laid back and cool, ankle boots give it a rock n roll style, gladiator sandals are boho-chic.

Have fun with them! Instead of sticking to plain denim, buy your overalls in a bright color, like these yellow ones.
White denim overalls can be difficult to pull off. However, sticking to simple silhouettes, like a sexy sheer button up and dainty pair of heels, can make it a little easier to pull off.
