Spring is here, and it’s time to break out your favorite pair of overalls! I am a huge fan of overalls because they are so versatile, they can easily be worn casually or dressed up. When I want to put together a quick outfit while still being cute, I automatically go to my overalls because 80% of the outfit is already thought of. If you want to be overall twins with me, keep scrolling because I will be showing you five different ways to wear overalls that accommodates for all styles.
1. Preppy Professional
Contrary to what you might think, overalls can be styled to look professional! I found that the best way to do this, is to wear a blouse underneath while keeping the color palette neutral. For my top, I went for a polka dot blouse that has a cute tie. I love how the tie adds visual interest up top and breaks up the overall’s shape. Mini bags are my favorite as of late, so I decided to go for a plaid mini bag. Mixing patterns can be daunting, (and still is for me!) but keeping them within the same color palette is an easy way to start off. Lastly, for shoes, I am wearing a nude heel. This outfit is perfect to wear when you want to dress it up a bit!

2. All Black
Whenever I am stuck on what to wear, I know that an all black outfit will never fail me! This is a simple and easy outfit for anyone to recreate because I am sure we all have something black in our wardrobes. To keep things interesting, I decided to wear a one shoulder top underneath the overalls. Staying true to black, I went for my thrifted mini bag that has nice metal details. For shoes, I am wearing these pointed toe slippers that have metal accents. By keeping the color palette all black and incorporating metal accents, it creates a sophisticated sleek look.

3. Girly Floral
My favorite way to wear overalls lately has been to pair them with a girly blouse underneath. I am especially obsessed with ones that have poofy sleeves and smocking (which is that scrunched up looked around the body of the top). Wicker bags are the perfect accessory to just about anything and I am so happy that I finally get to break mine out with the warmer temperatures. For shoes, I am wearing lace up espadrille wedges.

4. Denim on Denim
If you want to try something new and get out of your comfort zone, I recommend trying a denim on denim look. For my top, I am wearing a button up denim shirt underneath these denim overalls. To accessorize, I am wearing statement pearl hairclips as well as a matching white mini bag. Staying consistent with the denim look, I am wearing denim sandals for shoes. I am so pleased with how this outfit turned out and have always been a fan of denim looks.

5. Casual Tee
This last outfit is probably the most commonly worn way, but there is good reason for that. A basic tee and overall combo will look good on just about anyone. This is my absolute favorite t-shirt from my fellow blogger friend Alana Yazzie aka The Fancy Navajo. It has the words Ya’at’eeh Gorgeous on it, which basically means Hello Gorgeous, how cute is that! (Ya’at’eeh is Navajo for “Hello”, if you didn’t know.) I decided to wear a Masani scarf in my hair for a pop of color. And because this outfit is all about comfort and wearability, I am wearing white sneakers for shoes.
