I’m back with more ways to wear overalls. I loved finding different ways to pair these pieces. If you haven’t seen part one, click here!

1. Add a scarf.

Adding a scarf adds some interest to the neckline. This scarf is actually the bottom of a housedress that I’m refashioning. I love the print.

Overalls: Thrifted

Scarf: Thrifted

Shoes: Payless

2. Wear a shirt with an interesting neckline.

Since the overalls length is adjustable, I decided to play with the top. Turtlenecks or the high 90s-esque necklines that are in season add a different twist to overalls.

3. Wear a button-down shirt.

Buttoned to the top or with a few open on the top, adding a button-down shirt adds some glam. Watch out to not wear anything too striped or you might look like a farmer.

4. Make it really girly.

By adding this girly pussy bow blouse, it breaks up the boyish shape of overalls. I love the look with one strap off the shoulder.

5. Edge it up.

With a pair of combat boots and a hat, this outfit changes up the youthful look of overalls.

6. Add a skirt.

I know this is a little weird, but I think with a blazer and flouncy skirt, the overall top peaking out is very interesting. I would love to know your thoughts!

I think the best advice for styling overalls is to have fun with it! They’re not a super serious clothing item – so enjoy the days you wear them!
