Sweet Eyelet + Overalls

Another week, another Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a fun way to style overalls for spring. Overalls and jumpsuits are always on trend for the warmer seasons but this year I have been seeing them everywhere and on everyone. What used to be a trend for the kiddos is quickly becoming a mama and blogger favorite.

Now, while I love a great flowy, boho fit for my jumpsuits I prefer my overalls (especially denim ones) to have a more form fitting style. Obviously with the great slim girlfriend jean and mom jean trends I’ve been seeing lately, denim overalls can look great with a slightly looser fit as well. But for myself personally I like a nice tight fit through the tusch and thighs to avoid looking too farm girl chic for my petite frame. The skinny overalls by Madewell are the perfect fit and cut to look fitted and modern. In fact, this is my second pair of ’em because they are that good. Remember this pair from last spring? When I spotted them in black I couldn’t help but grab another set!

I have worn these overalls more casually with a classic black and white stripe tee and even in winter with a gray sweater tucked in and ankle boots. Really, just like any good jeans, these are pretty much seasonless and can be dressed up or down. Here I decided to go a little more frilly and fun with a ruffled eyelet blouse and some classic black leather loafers. To finish off the look and remind myself that it is spring (ok, kind of spring) I added a round rattan bag.

I love being able to play up fun pieces and keep them versatile and these overalls are great. If deciding between a classic blue pair, black pair, or even white pair (side note: I am obsessed with a chic white pair for summer) I would actually opt for the black. Simply because it would likely work with many more tops and for at least 3 seasons of the year, but it’s all about what works for your wardrobe! And heck, if you can swing it, I’d buy a blue pair, a black pair and definitely a pretty new white pair – one for every mood and nearly every season I say 😉

There are plenty of adorable overalls out there right now so I’ve linked a few below, but if you have a chance to try out the Madewell ones, I highly recommend them! I found them to fit TTS (size XS) and hit right at my ankle so they work well with booties, flats or tennis shoes. Sadly the black appears to be sold out but I have seen them on eBay and Poshmark. I have linked a few other similar options to check out too.

Tell me, are on board with this trend or sort of over(all) of it already? 😉 xo, jules
