Fact: Styling plays a huge role in determining whether you look good or not. Some people have a natural flair for fashion – they could throw on something resembling a rug and still make it work. Others might need a little more help. But that’s why websites like us exist – to help you to overcome their wardrobe troubles.

We absolutely love overalls, but we have to admit that with the wrong styling, overalls may make you look like an adult in baby clothes.

But fret not! We’re here to be your styling saviour with these five ways you can style overalls without coming off as juvenile – less baby and more lady.

 

OUTFIT 1

One tip to pulling off overalls like a grown up is to always stick to achromatic colours like your blacks and whites. Keep your outfit simple; pair your overalls with a long-sleeved top and loafers for a more sophisticated look.

OUTFIT 2

The classic denim dungarees deserves an honorary mention. Go for one with minimal details – the fewer buttons, the better. Let a bright red, off-shoulder top be the statement piece of your ensemble and finish the look with a pair of Chelsea boots and a quilted bag.

OUTFIT 3

One definite way to look older (in a good way!) is to wear black – all black. Back apparel will instantly make you look more mature without sacrificing the casual vibe of your get-up. Style the look with delicate accessories such as slim gold bracelets and strappy high heels to amp up the femininity of your ensemble. And for the statement piece? Gun for a classic gold watch.
