If you know me, you know that I am always down to opt for a head-to-toe denim look. You also know that I like to employ as little effort possible to look as put-together as I can. And what do these delightful personality traits result in? That's right, folks: I am a devoted, unabashed overalls ride-or-die.
Overalls get a pretty bad rap, in my opinion. People often associate them with childhood or with a long day of hard labor―neither of which are the look I'm going for, personally―but overalls don't need to call forth either of those vibes. There's a plethora of cool, chic, and even edgy overall options out there than can suit any vibe and any destination. If you're still not convinced, check out our guide to how to style overalls, and take a look below at some of our favorites.
The Classic Blue
Sleek and Black
Who doesn't love wearing black? The color is excellent for sprucing up your denim game and looking a bit more work-friendly. Plus, it matches with everything.
The White Ones
The Colorful Ones
Look, as mentioned, we all love the classic blue, black, and white shades of denim for their versatility and classic energy. But that doesn't mean we can't appreciate a bold pop up color like this gorgeous shade of red. Overalls are already a statement piece in many ways, and imbuing them with color is an easy way to stand out from the crowd and deviate from predictability.
The Patterned Pair
The Overalls Dress
I firmly believe that corduroy's comeback is on its way—it's so cute and wholesome! This dress, for instance, incorporates corduroy beautifully into the dress-overalls look. The overalls dress itself works great in the summertime, or in the winter when paired with tights and a turtleneck.
Okay, I don't know if denim bodysuits technically qualify as overalls, but I'd venture to say that they're in the same family. If you love the ease of pulling on a pair of overalls in the morning, you'll adore the way a bodysuit like this streamlines your morning routine and keeps you looking trendy all day. Opt for this sleeveless option if you'd like, or check out these short-sleeved and long-sleeved options. You can even wear the bodysuit as a pair of shorts (think: denim romper).
