So, we get it, it’s “Spring” in Pittsburgh (or so we hear) and there’s literally more snow on the ground than any other time this Winter…While it’s beautiful, it doesn’t exactly inspire lightweight pastels and open-toed sandals. So, in the spirit of what the weather is actually like outside, I thought that I would share my tips on how to wear overalls, the perfect piece for transitioning from snow covered days into the coming warm weather that I swear is coming! I love how versatile overalls are, you truly can wear them no matter what your style aesthetic is, bonus, they feel like wearing pajamas. Sign me up.
The prepster– This look is for the feminine girl, I love the blush details, perfect for the coming Spring season. Obviously, pastels are huge, so throw them on with your overalls to lighten things up. I have the overalls styled here with a classic chambray button up (American Eagle from Salvo, $4), a blush flat from Walmart ($12), and blush baseball cap also Walmart ($1!).
The 90’s chick/Tomboy– I love the idea of pairing the overalls with a white crop (Salvo, $3) and a pair of Birks (mine are from Soda, Amazon, $19.99), just throw the chambray top from your last look over your shoulder and you will look as effortless as one of the Spice Girls, and they’re having a reunion this year, right?!
The boho chick-Boho is such a fun look for Spring, the possibilities are endless with kimonos and lace galore on the racks right now. I have styled the overalls with a vintage bathrobe, turned kimono from salvo ($5) and my Gucci knock off loafers from Walmart ($8) for a lightweight layered look, done in deeper tones, the perfect marriage of Winter and Spring.
The edgy chick/street style– Street style is interpreted many ways, I love doing it in a monochromatic look. Pair your overalls with a black crop top and moto boots to bring out your inner edgy girl.
The French girl– I love all things European, duh. So, I thought, how fun would it be to style the overalls with basic French-inspired pieces? I went with a classic striped JCREW top from Salvo ($4.99) with a vintage Chanel scarf (Salvo, $3) and those same great loafers from the other looks. Tulips sold separately.
The minimalist– I love the minimalist, it just screams a cozy Sunday afternoon at home, add delicate (or no) jewelry, bare feet, and a plain white tee and you are all set. Easy, easy, easy.
The Grandma – For a cozy look for those colder Winter days that are still sticking around, I chose a chunky H&M sweater ($10), done in a great neutral to pair with the loafers and the Loft sunglasses ($4). This look is grandma-chic in the best way.
