We’ve come a long way from the ’90s obsession with overalls. And by that we mean we’re still obsessed, but our fashion sense is way better. Overalls are one of the most versatile pieces you can put in your closet. There are so many new ways to style them ranging from fun and casual to more formal and chic. The combinations are truly endless.
Not sure how to wear overalls? Don’t worry — we have a few ideas to help you out. We picked five of our favorite FOREVER 21 overalls and have a variety of tips on how to style each pair. Feel free to mix and match depending on your personal look, but check out our current fave ways to wear overalls:
Pair With a Crop Top
The ’90s did give us another thing that pairs perfectly with overalls: crop tops. Name a better duo than overalls and crop tops. We’ll wait. Try pairing our Wide Leg Overalls with our Hello Crop for a fun, casual look. You can add sneakers if you’re going more low-key or wedges for a fun vibe. Or embrace your inner rocker by wearing a cropped band tee instead.
And if crop tops aren’t your thing, just wear a regular fit tee instead! Opt for a tighter fit if you want to lean into the ’90s style, or go for a larger, loose fit for a more relaxed look.
Wear With a Bikini
If we can wear bralettes on their own, we can certainly wear bikini tops in the same way. For an extra chill Spring or Summer look, wear our new Striped Triangle Bikini Top (or any bikini top!) under our Distressed-Knee Denim Overalls. Tie a printed scarf in your hair with some beachy waves for the ultimate boho style. Best worn with flat sandals or wedges and paired with a straw bag. Add on a floppy hat if you want to say “I’m on vacay.”
You can also achieve this same vibe by wearing a one-piece bathing suit or bodysuit under your overalls as well. Do what you’re most comfortable with!
Go for Stripes
If you want a chic, casual look, you can wear our Brushed Multicolor Striped Shirt under a pair of FOREVER 21 Contemporary Denim Overalls. The darker, loose-fitting denim will look great with the red, gray, and white stripes. This look will take casual Fridays to another level.
You can easily take this look from day to night by swapping out flats or sneakers for a block heel or booties. Add some bold earrings and assorted bangles, and you’ll be ready for a night with your girlfriends.
Lace it Up
If anyone tells you overalls aren’t for a night out, they’re just plain wrong. Wear overalls out, on a date, or wherever you want! But if you want to dress up your look, try FOREVER 21 Wide-Leg Denim Overalls with a fancier top, like the Crochet Mock Neck Top. The lace detail adds some sophistication to an otherwise more casual style, making this a unique evening outfit.
Wear with wedges, hoop earrings, and a messy bun, and you’ll be turning heads all day and all night. Throw on a colored belt if you’re feeling even more extra.
Overalls don’t only come in pants form, either. A classic overall dress is one of our favorite looks, especially this Mini Overall Dress. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Add a candy-colored sweater like our Striped Mesh Sweater underneath for a super fun and flirty style.
You can wear basic white tennis shoes for a casual outing or block heels for a cute dinner date or brunch with the gals.
Now, these aren’t the only ways to style your overalls. Dress them up, dress them down. Use both straps or just one. Go wild and fold both straps down for an “I’m an artist” vibe. You really can’t go wrong.
There are so many options out there, which is why experimenting with your fashion is so much fun! You can rock your FOREVER 21 overalls any way you want. The most important thing is that you feel confident and fabulous in what you’re wearing, no matter the occasion!
