A week or so ago a friend was asking me what to wear with shortalls. They are even harder than their counter part of full pant-alls to make look grown up! But I mean, come on, shortalls. Shortalls. ShortALLS. I hate the word, it’s the worst. It doesn’t even make sense. Nonetheless, I love the actual article of clothing. Here are three ways I have found to make my favorite pair of shortalls look somewhat more age appropriate.
1. Leather: Add some leather! I chose to pair them first with a leather vest. What little kids have you ever seen running around with a leather vest under their overalls? None. None little kids.
Shortalls: G-Star // Leather vest: Ralph Lauren // Tan booties: Rumble Boots by JC
2. Neon: Add some neon in with the mix! Even better, some lacy neon! Maybe get a bit scandalous under such a modest piece of clothing with a neon crop top of sorts. Then throw on a pair of flashy wedges, and you are good to go!
Shortalls: G-Star // Neon top: Urban Outfitters // Red sandal wedges: Prabal Gurung for Target
3. Suit Jacket: Nothing says grown up like anything in the form of a suit. This one just happens to be perfect for such an occasion as shortalls. Paired with a gray tee and little black boots, you are looking fab in seconds flat! Maybe you are a little “business in the back, child in the front,” but you know, as I always say, YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE.
Hope this helped all of those lost and wandering shortall lovers! I know you’re out there.
