Happy Tuesday! I’ve got not one, but THREE outfits for you today — all centered around overalls. Been curious how to wear ’em in the fall? Keep reading for three outfit formulas.
LOOK ONE / Overalls with a chunky sweater
I have to admit, I was skeptical of wearing something “chunky” underneath overalls. Will it be too bulky? Will the sweater spill out on the sides and look weird?
Well, yes the sweater will spill out.
But no, it doesn’t look weird.
It looks pretty cool and slouchy.
However! Watch out for weird bumps when you’re tucking your sweater into your overalls. My strategy was to tuck the front and back first so I could get them nice and flat, then I bunched up the sides and tucked them second. Leaving the sweater bunchy at the sides gives the whole look a slouchy and relaxed vibe.
Here’s a few more outfits with this sweater, in case you’re wondering what it looks like untucked.

LOOK TWO / Overalls with a button down flannel shirt
Turns out I was skeptical of look two, also. I was nervous that a plaid shirt + overalls might read too country for my style.
But it surprised me.
Yes, it’s casual, but paired with the cognac ankle booties and tote, it feels right to me. In fact, I think it’s my favorite look out of the whole trio.
It’s the kind of thing I’d wear to hang out with my family and play with my nieces and nephews. It’s super casual and wearable, while still being a little playful and cheery.

LOOK THREE / Overalls with a long cardigan
This was one look I was not skeptical about at all. I knew I’d love it before I even tried it out.
In case you can’t see it, I’m wearing my stretchy long sleeve base layer underneath. It’s super fitted, so it fits underneath the cardigan nicely while still giving me two long sleeve layers. And then I wrapped it all up + added warmth with my cozy scarf.
So, real talk. If you have overalls, but haven’t worn them yet because you feel like they are too much of a statement, try styling them like this. The long cardigan and scarf almost disguise the fact that you’re wearing overalls — giving you time to wear them all over town and get used to them with a nice little safety net. Yay!
