Overalls are a huge trend this season, but can be a little tricky to wear. I wanted to share how to wear denim short overalls in two different ways for completely different looks. Topshop Moto Denim overalls are casual and the perfect shape for both these looks. Learn how to wear denim short overalls for both a casual weekend outfit and a fancier lunch date.

This first look is an easy take on the overalls trend. I paired Topshop denim overalls with a white cropped tee, oversized black sunglasses, a leopard belt and leopard print slip-on sneakers to complete the casual ensemble.

Accessories elevate this simple denim overalls and white tee combo with a silver Michael Kors watch, spiked bracelet c/o Persunmall and a rough rock ring. The leopard belt adds interest to the plain denim and cinches in the waist. In general, I kept the colour palette simple and let the overalls be the focal point of this look.

How to wear denim short overalls: Parisian-inspired

The second look featuring the Topshop Moto denim overalls has a Parisian flair. I paired the denim short overalls with a long sleeved striped tee, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel, red patent Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Bow flats, and a pearl necklace from Forever 21.

I basically layered the overalls over a simple striped shirt that is a neutral backdrop, while the stripes give some interest. The pop of red in the shoes and on my lipstick also add a little bit of cutesy flair to a pair of country denim dungarees!

Whether you want to look casual for a music festival, or get mileage out of this trend on date-night, stick with neutral colours layered under the denim and add a belt or jewelry to elevate country denim overalls into an outfit ready for the city! I hope that now you’re armed with tips on how to wear short denim overalls, I can see myself wearing mine all summer both in the city and at the cottage!

      Thanks so much for your comments! It seems that overalls are soooo hot right now, even the long pants type, but I prefer the shorts because they’re more fun!

      Thanks so much Gabby! I think it’s all about inserting a little “glam” into the casual pieces. Hope to see you style overalls as well this summer (even if it’s just for gardening or lazing around!)

    I prefer the 2nd look with the stripes as I love the whole classy french thing going on and your red lipstick is the perfect finishing touch. Also love the leopard print belt in the other photos!

      Thank you so much Lorna! I think I agree, the first look is more casual for the cottage but my favourite is the second because I love anything striped! Thanks for commenting <3
