Love those overalls you bought last summer but looking for some new ways to style them this time around? Prepare to get inspired because it’s time to pull them out of the closet! As alternatives to skinny jeans, they’re the perfect pick for off-duty style this summer and can be worn a ton of different ways (think heels or not, layered with statement pieces or your most basic tee). Let the below girls show you a thing or two about how to style them.
Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What paired her straight leg overalls with a simple, yet chic, white button-down and pair of statement heels to elevate the look.

For a casual day, take a cue from Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules, who cuffed her vintage-style shorteralls over a striped tee and finished off the look with a pair of flat sandals, cross body bag, and felt hat.

Look to one of our favorite denim trends of the season and go for wide-leg overalls that are slightly flared. Style with your chunky summer heels or platforms.

These white shorteralls and striped tee on We The People Style’s Jessie Bush are a match made in heaven. The bright white of the summery one-piece makes the tee immediately pop.

For curvy or busty girls, a pair of overalls with a slightly higher bib is the most flattering, like this style on To Style With Love‘s Daphne Blunt. It hits at the highest point of your chest, resembling a jumpsuit more than a pair of overalls.

Man Repeller Leandra Medine’s overall look is the most youthful of the bunch, but we love it equally as much as the most elevated version of the trend. For a weekend picnic in the park, throw on a classic white tee and matching white low-tops to complete the look.

Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific rocks what we like to call a girlfriend cut. Slouchy like a boyfriend jean but a touch slimmer, it’s more tailored than a traditional distressed pair.

Paulien Riemis, of Polienne, shows us the best way to wear all-white this summer. Snowy denim is always best oversized, so boyfriend-style shorteralls rule here. Perfect the monochrome look by making sure the weave of everything varies for a fun play on texture—mix nubby with silky and smooth.
Karen Blanchard of Where Did U Get That knows the power of a white top and blue jeans. She makes the pair modern, though, by finding an eyelet white top with a slight crop instead of a traditional tee.

Channel your inner French girl and grab a navy Breton stripe to slip under your overalls. The stacked heels Aurélia of Absolutely Glamorous adds are perfect for a casual-but-chic stroll.

Often, the simplest styles are among the best. This slim black tee on fashion editor Veronika Heilbrunner perfectly complements her straight-leg overalls; as fellow basics, they combine for the chicest version of normcore we’ve ever seen.

We’ve been talking a lot lately about the sophistication of ripped jeans and overalls are no exception. This pair of distressed blues looks fancier, instantly, with the addition of a silk blouse and pointed-toe shoes.
