How To Wear Overalls if You Feel Too Old to Wear Overalls

I’ve been torn about the overalls trend for the past year. I grew up in the ’90s loving overalls. I remember a super soft pair I had from GAP that I was obsessed with. When the trend reemerged in my 20s I immediately bought new ones. But now that I’m in my 30s and the overalls trend is back once again I’m not so sure.

I see my fellow bloggers looking adorable rocking the trend. But I still can’t get on board. I just feel too old for overalls! So instead of overalls, I’m getting the look with a denim jumpsuit. This chambray jumpsuit is even softer than my beloved overalls I had as a kid. For daytime, I gave them an overalls feel by layering stripes underneath (the cold shoulder felt a little more currentΒ then a classic tee). Then for night I simply ditched the tee and layered with my necklaces.

Here a few chambray jumpsuits (including mine) that work for a sophisticated alternative to overalls…
