The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

I’m probably going to anger a few fashion forward readers out there with this statement, but I can’t be silent any longer: I hate the summer overall trend… like HATE. I just cannot get on board with an ensemble that is so universally unflattering. Yes, there are those two people out there who can pull off overalls and do it well. (The only one I can actually think of right now is Natalie Holbrook, but she basically looks cute in everything though.) But for the other 98% of us: JUST SAY NO.

I actually used to detest overalls so much that I went so far as to say that I didn’t like them for any human being period. But then I changed my mind and decided that they’re super adorable on kids…and only kids.

And now I really want a cute pair for Fern, although I’ve actually had a super hard time tracking down a pair that read fashion and not farm-life. (I’d love to find something like these grownup overalls.) If you know of any, please let me know, because all of my internet searching has been in vain thus far.

BUT, I have found a few cute pairs that are possible potentials on my wish list for Fern…

  • The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers 1 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    A few of my favorites from one of summer's hottest trends - just for toddlers!

  • Printed Short Denim Overalls 2 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    I love the feminine cut and print of thee overalls - the way the bib is nipped in just a bit is perfection.

    Purchase for $25.99 from Gap

  • Balloon Print Twill Overalls 3 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    The super pale pink of these overalls is one I can get on board with and the print is fun and whimsical. Not something I would typically be drawn to, but I kind of love these.

    Purchase for $34.00 from Osh Kosh

  • Poplin Polka Dot Shortalls 4 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    OK...not gonna lie...if these were in grown-up size I might have to reconsider my no overalls for adults stance, but seriously, these are SO cute for a little girl!

    Purchase for $19.00 from Osh Kosh

  • Poplin Floral Shortalls 5 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    I really love the shape of these and the last overalls. The slight pleating gives them a cute girly look and the black and floral combination is totally reminiscent of the 90's in a way that I kind of love. I wonder if they make mini Dr. Marten's to go with this look?

    Purchase for $19.00 from Osh Kosh

  • Hickory Striped Denim Overalls 6 of 6
    The Summer Overall Trend For Toddlers

    These are a classic overall, but I love that they have a teeny bit of flair in the fact that they're black striped with tiny pink details - a bit unexpected. I think they would be cute rolled up haphazardly. Super cute.

    Purchase for $16-17 from Osh Kosh
