My inner 14 year old is totally loving the fact that overalls are back in style. I basically lived in overalls and shortalls from 7th grade to my sophomore year of high school. They’ve introduced new fits, styles and textures and they’re better than ever. Maybe you’ve been wanting to try this trend but were afraid of looking too young. Maybe you weren’t into the trend before and just now thinking of giving it a try. Whatever the case, I’m going to show you how you can wear overalls as a grown up.
The 90s styles had a relaxed fit that gave them a more youthful and sometimes sloppy look. Now they are much more tailored and come in fits and lengths for everyone. I’ve found the fitted or semi-fitted styles to be the most figure flattering. I found this pair that I absolutely love! They are cropped in length with a frayed hem that makes them just the right length for me at 5’1″. However, if you find a pair that is slightly too long, you can always cuff the ankles too.

I love that these are fitted through the legs to give them a feminine look. The cropped length also makes them easy to pair with sneakers, booties or wedges. I love that you can wear overalls for pretty much any occasion. You can wear them on play dates, shopping with girl friends, running errands, you name it! They’re so easy to throw on and go.
The pair I’m wearing has a junior fit but they do stretch. I went ahead and ordered them in a medium and they fit perfectly. I’m normally a size 26 for reference. They also have regular pockets in them which is great. Most of the pairs that I had back in high school did not have them. I know I’m going to wear these overalls a lot.
You can wear overalls with fitted shirts, crop tops, button downs and sweaters. The key is to make sure your top isn’t too bulky underneath to make it look sloppy. You can also layer cardigans, vest and jackets on too. Have fun with it.
