How to rock overalls

Overalls are the kind of clothing that most guys don't get. They're like boyfriend jeans and harem pants (I mean, I don't get harem pants either). Guys don't get why we would want to wear something that makes our butt look saggy. These pieces are the kinds of things we wear for ourselves, because we like them, even if they're not always the most flattering thing we could wear. (Seth actually said I looked cute in these, which shocked me, but my brother thought they were just weird.) Overalls aren't your typical sexy date night attire, but they can be cute and stylish and set you apart.





I've been searching for the perfect pair forever. I found this Citizens of Humanity pair on major sale at Anthropologie and prayed they'd fit when they came in the mail. The sides are a little big, but they're the first pair that I don't look ridiculous in! Plus, them being a little big means I'll get my money's worth and will be able to wear them as my bump grows and not just for a few weeks. These have sold out, but the black version is available here.


Seth and I had a double date last Friday and these had just come in the mail so I really wanted to wear them. I approached styling them with the attempt to make them seem a little cooler, a little less farmer. The dinner was casual but it was a Friday night so I dressed them up a bit with an embroidered blouse and leather jacket. I went with a wedge sneaker to elevate the look just slightly while still being laid back.


As we were getting ready to head out, I kept going back and forth on whether I should change into regular jeans. I loved the outfit, but I knew it wasn't exactly typical and wondered if I'd look like a clown. Thankfully, I went with what I liked rather than worrying about what other people might think and wouldn't you know it, two people complimented them! It just goes to show that when you stay true to who you are, it pays off.

So two things to keep in mind when dressing for date night:

1 // When styling an item that a guy might not get (like overalls), pair it with pieces that balance it out and elevate the entire look. Think feminine pieces to balance masculine, cooler pieces to amp up simplicity, heels to dress up a casual look, etc.

2 // Wear what you love. Your confidence will make you all the more radiant and magnetic.

Rock it and own it, ladies!
