10 Hip Ways to Style Overalls to Avoid Looking Like a Toddler

Like it or not, overalls are totally a fall trend. Again. Haha, this trend cycles through from time to time, I’ve hopped on board once or twice. Once in fourth grade and once in college.

But even though I’m a total advocate of wearing your bliss and not worrying about anything else, overalls really do look best on thin girls with little to no chest.

Considering my current nursing chest looks like it ate one of these models for a snack…I’ll be steering clear of the trend. But if you’re looking to wear overalls without looking like a toddler, here are some tips for how to style them!

    You don't have to wear a t-shirt, think about pairing your overalls with a turtle neck, button up, or a lace collar.

    A lot of style sites say, "Add a crop top!" to your overalls, but if you're a mom, I think that's kind of absurd. Then again, maybe you can rock it?! I certainly can't. A much more practical suggestions in my opinion? Pair your overalls with a sexy bold lip. This model is doing both, and doing both well.
