1st Time Styling Overalls (for Summer)

Eva Trends Overalls Dungarees

There’s a first time for everything! And this is my first time styling overalls. I haven’t worn overalls since I was a child, and my mom had creative control of the styling back then, haha. I honestly never thought I would wear them again…but I was curious to try them one more time after seeing all the different styles and patterns available.

This pair is from my friends over at Eva Trends. They helped me pick them out, as I had no idea how to go about getting a pair I would actually like. This pair ended up being the winners because they are a bit more fitted, and they have adjustable straps. I also love how soft and breathable they are (they’re made out of cotton). I don’t think I could get myself to wear a pair of jean overalls in the summmer!

For me? Or not for me? Still deciding…

I’m still a bit undecided if I’m a fan of overalls for my personal style, but I have to admit, they sure are comfortable! I really like how deep the pockets are for this pair. (And if you use code LP15 you’ll get 15% off your Eva Trends order.) I don’t love that I basically have to get undressed everytime I want to use the restroom, but it’s not the worst by any means. (And it has to be better than wearing a playsuit/jumpsuit – which I refuse to buy for that reason alone, haha.)


Question time!

Now, I also have two questions for you lovely readers! 1st up, do you call them overalls? Or do you call them dungarees? I’ve always called them overalls, but I know they’re called both…and I’m pretty sure they’re the same thing? (But let me know if I’m wrong in the comments!)

And, question numner 2! Do you think you can style baggier overalls (like these) with a belt? Or is that a no, no? I was going to wear them with a belt (I can’t stand not having a cinched waist). But I took it off before I left the house for the day because I couldn’t decide if it actually worked with overalls.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on these two questions in the comments! And what are your overall thoughts on overalls? (Didn’t even mean to do that! Ha!)

  1. I like them with and without a belt! They are lovely on you, can’t go wrong with a classic stripe! 🙂

    I haven’t worn overalls since I was younger either, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far 🙂

  2. I am in LOVE with these overalls! I love the shape of them, they are so modern & effortless. x Shannon || www.champagneatshannons.com

  3. These are so cute! I didn’t think I liked overalls but these are marvelous. I prefer them without a belt.

  4. These overalls are so adorable! I love the cut of them, they look amazing on you!

  5. I have always been a fan of overalls but have only ever owned one pair because they are hard to find for my body, but this style looks perfect and loved how you tried it with a belt too!

  6. I liked them better with the belt. You know my answer to the first. Especially from where we’re from.

    1. Ooh, we’re split pretty evenly on belt vs. no belt. Haha. I think it’s a requirement to wear overalls when growing up in Wisconsin. 😉

  7. Overalls are so tricky to style, yet you’ve done a beautiful job! Gorgeous look.

  8. You styled these perfectly! I love how you added a belt at the end to make it more tailored. Too cute!

  9. These are super adorable and fun! I like that they’re not your typical overall. Between the culotte style, pinstripes, and collared shirt layered underneath, they take on a charming retro vibe. And I actually prefer them without the belt. So fun!


    1. Thank you! I was picturing a more vintage look when I saw them online. And glad I didn’t go with the belt then! Haha. 🙂

  10. I think this baggier style is fabulous for the hot summer months, Lindsey!! And the shorter length is great too!!
