They might not be super stylish or glamorous, but overalls are quickly becoming a must-have wardrobe piece for girls big and small. They are so simple and can be combined to create tons of different looks. And they are usually comfortable, which makes wearing them even better!
So how can your girl sport the overall look without feeling or looking like a farmer? By adding one simple piece to her overall ensemble, your sweet little diva can go from frumpy farm girl to stylish trendsetter. Here are 5 pieces to add to your girl’s overalls that will make her look stylish.
I love how hats can be worn on bad hair days to cover up dirty hair, or frizzy hair, or generally uncooperative hair. But you can wear hats just because you like them, too. Or because they add a nice touch of style to your outfit. In the case of overalls, your girl can top her head with a colourful hat of her choosing to create a fashionable statement. A baseball cap can give a sportier feel to the look, while something like a fedora or a felt hat adds an element of fun.
Oh, the amazing things that scarves can do- like add colour, texture or dimension to an outfit. If your little girl wants to spice up her overalls, she can throw a scarf over them. Solid colours work fine, but fun prints and patterns will really liven up the look. An infinity style scarf is the best choice.
Not every pair of overalls can be worn with a belt, but for the pair that can, a belt can be a great accessory. A belt will break up the overalls to create a look that is more structured, while also adding some colour and/or texture. A belt gives the illusion of a two piece ensemble, instead of the onesie style look that overalls have. House of Fraser has some fun designs to choose from.
You can’t wear overalls by themselves. At least not if you want to be a respected member of society. So your little girl is going to need a great shirt to wear underneath that denim. Choose a shirt that has something unique about it- the print, the style, something that takes away from the plain jane overalls. Think ruffled sleeves, or collared shirts- something that adds pizzazz.
In order to stay away from the farmer look, your girl will need to wear shoes that are more feminine and fun. Something like a colourful pair of J. Crew boat shoes would be a great choice. The girlier, the better! A small heel could work, if the other pieces are feminine enough, or even some stylish boots in the fall.
