I must admit before a couple weeks ago I can’t remember the last time I wore overalls (childhood?). I think I’ve rediscovered a classic – they’re surprisingly easy to style and there’s something fresh and all-American about them. My style is usually very feminine and put together, so I think the key here is to add pieces that contribute some polish to an otherwise very casual look. I’d wear denim overalls with a striped shirt underneath, nude pumps and a hat, but they’re equally appealing with a cropped top for the heat of summer (as shown here).
I hosted a fun event with Guess and Marie Claire a couple weeks back and chose these overalls for the night. It was a great night celebrating the new Flex Denim collection with music, treats and drinks. Now I’m on the lookout for some overall shorts for the season! What do you think?
It’s barely spring but jumpsuits are making their way into my rotation. This sweet printed jumpsuit’s sleeves make it easy to layer under a leather jacket or with a belt. I don’t usually find many long-sleeved dresses that I love, so this is a nice alternative. I wear these Dolce Vitalace-up nude sandals with literally everything these days – from casual outfits to cocktail attire. They’re so comfortable and I can’t recommend them enough. Let me know what you think of this look!
Sometimes the most put-together outfits are the simplest; in this case a great staple black moto jacket and a printed pant. I usually wear lots of color but it’s nice to fall back to black and white; it never fails! Both pieces are by a line called bar III that focuses on chic pieces (at really good price points – this jacket is under $100) made for women who “set the bar” in their fields (love that). If you’re looking for a leather jacket steal this is for you. These printed pants are super stretchy and flattering, and more substantial than leggings. They’d also make a good layering piece with a longer tunic on top. Paired with a great heel I’d wear this to meetings or out and about during the day. Hope your week is off to a great start!
I love blush toned anything – dresses, coats, shoes – so I’m always happy when the shade is in style. I consider it a neutral, and it adds some softness to a leather jacket. I found this Barbara Bui jacket at Intermix last season. It was no doubt a major investment but I fell in love with the color and quilted pattern and I’ll have it for years. I’ve spotted some similar-toned options lately: this blush toned coat would be fantastic layered over pants and boots, and this pink jacket adds a pop of color at a friendlier price point than real leather.
I wear my Frame Denim ripped jeans with everything – at least three times a week! If you’re looking for some ripped denim that has the right amount of distress without looking sloppy, this is it. Hope your week is off to a great start!
