First thing first: making a pair of overalls look chic wasn’t as difficult as I imagined (it was actually rather easy!) and the end result wasn’t bringing flashbacks of baby Kayla in her elementary days like I thought it would have done. The only comments and stares I received were from my brothers and I wouldn’t have expected anything else from them…
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great relaxing and fun-filled weekend. Today on The Beautiful Melody I am sharing 3 ways to style overalls! I was a little skeptical to try out this trend in public because of all the “what ifs” that came in to mind. What if I look like a little girl? What if people think I’m lost and can’t find my farm?… The what ifs were endless, but then I thought to myself: Why should I care what anyone thinks? So, I played around and came to this outfit. The all black, heel booties added the sophistication that I needed to prove that I am in fact a grown-up, and the over-the-shoulder blush blouse brought the feminine touch that I wanted.
For more inspiration, I have listed 3 ways to style overalls for fall!
Keep it to One Hue
Nothing portrays sophistication more than a minimal look. This is a great tip for those who want to play with the trend, but may not want to advertise the fact that they are actually wearing overalls right now. Keeping it simple, lets the eyes see the overall outfit and won’t direct the eyes to the actually overalls.
In this case, let the accessories do the talking. Add a stack of chunky bracelets or a statement necklace for a more bolder look.
Add a Bold Color
Stand out by layering a bright color knit under a dark pair of overalls. The contrast is beautiful and perfect for fall. Another way to add a bold color with minimal effort, is to add it to your lips. I love the look of a stripe knit under a dark pair of overalls paired with a bright bold lip. It is very classy and you will definitely be a very chic grown-up in with that look.
Play with Different Materials
Overalls don’t just come in denim! Leather overalls bring the ultimate glam vibe to this trend and it is beyond perfect for fall. Pair it with sleek hair, chain-link jewelry and pumps for an edgy night out, or pair it with sneakers and a casual white tee for a day out on the town!
