3 Easy Ways to Rock Overalls This Summer

Overalls are the perfect summer staple for a cute and casual look! If you’ve been worried to try this look in the past, don’t let that stop you this summer! Overalls are by far one of my favourite items to wear in the summer… other than my breezy summer dresses, that is! Make sure to check out my dedicated shop page for all of my current favourite summer dresses and rompers of the season!

Below I’m sharing a few things to keep in mind when it comes to rocking overalls this summer!


I would suggest having a pair of classic denim overalls in your closet, as these will quickly become your staple overalls. The great thing is, you don’t have to break the bank with denim overalls either, the ones pictured below I purchased a few years ago from Forever 21, and I think I paid around $40 for them!! These specific ones aren’t in stock anymore, but they have a TON of other options in stock that are really cute! I’ve linked a few for you below!

Don’t be afraid to mix it up and go with a pair of white overalls, like these must-have from Madewell for summertime, they’re such a classic staple! Or, shake things up and go for a pair of shortalls or an overall dress for a cooler outfit in the hot months!

Overalls can be worn with a cute tank top, crop top, short-sleeved shirt, or bodysuit (like the insanely comfy white one pictured above from Smash + Tess) in the spring and summer months and can easily be transitioned to a fall outfit by swapping your top for a light long sleeve shirt or thin sweater!

I love pairing my overalls with strappy sandals or slip-on shoes but they also look ADORABLE with chucks!! Don’t be afraid to wear shoes that add a pop of colour or a fun print to level up your outfit!

  1. Bought my first pair since childhood this year and loving them. Look great with Blundstones…but can’t wait to wear with sandals. Thanks for the tips.

  2. I have always owned a pair of overalls (shorts and pants) I love them so much, yet I am always nervous to wear them out…and I hate when I get farmers reference. I love your suggestions.
