One of your favorite fashion trends from childhood has made a comeback in recent years: Velcro sneakers, friendship bracelets, barrettes, and denim overall. Designers sent a plethora of denim duds down the spring runways, remixed with cool fabrics, colors, and silhouettes.
While the latest versions are significantly more chic than their ’90s predecessors, they still remain true to their tomboyish and ultra-comfortable roots. In case you didn’t get the memo, overalls are back. And have been for a while. Not only is this trend from the ’80s and ’90s insanely comfortable, but they are also practical and incredibly stylish.
But they can also be difficult to wear. In terms of styling, it’s important to make them look as modern as possible. Avoid flannel shirts, thin-strap tank tops and anything else that could make you look like a 5-year-old or a farmer. Instead, opt for chic blouses, striped tees and crisp white shirts.
Jeans are a highly personal thing. Find what works for you, and odds are you’ll never want to take them off. We’re not here to tell you what jeans you must wear, but rather the broader denim styles that are trending to help inform and inspire your winter denim overalls outfit. Another common issue we’ve been hearing with regards to this trend is that they can be a challenge to track down.
How to Accessorize Denim Overalls
Skip the slouchy tee in favor of a body-hugging tank. Wearing a form-fitting tank underneath denim overalls emphasizes a slimmer silhouette. Try a bright colored body-hugging tank by designer Michael Stars or a pretty racer-back tank by designer Splendid. Both tanks are available online at Zappos.com
Chain Necklaces and High-heeled Sandals Dress-up Denim Overalls
Another great way to accessorize your denim overalls according to the people at InStyle magazine is to add several long chain necklaces. Unleash your inner diva with the incredibly cool “Music Safety Pin Chain Drape Necklace” by Harajuku Lovers.
Add a final touch of glamour to your denim overalls with a pair of high-heeled sandals like these adorable and affordable pastel platform sandals by BCBG. These platform sandals are high on style. They are available for a reasonable $48 on Amazon.com. Paring denim overalls with a form-fitting tank, ladylike chain necklaces and sexy heels takes this style from utilitarian to glamorous.
