Overalls

Jessica Wagner

The chicest way to style overalls for spring
 

Yes, overalls are cool again. I kind of love that I also frolicked around in these when I was ten.

I own a wide-leg pair of vintage overalls that I’ve worn the last couple years before they became trendy again, which has always earned a sideway glace from my husband.   

Are you planning on painting the house? 

NO! Maybe…

So yeah, I have to admit, overalls are associated with a laid-back look for sure. But you can take this denim style from OshKosh cute to grown-up chic with some smart styling.

Meet your starter overalls. I added this pair to my closet last week and wanted to share. I’ve been in love with the idea of overalls for years, but when it came to finding a pair that fit, it was easier said than done. This distressed pair is tight at the waist with a skinny rolled up ankle, creating a flattering silhouette. Finding a pair of denim overalls that fit well is the key to pulling off this look, so don't let a good pair pass you by. You want them to feel tailor-made. To offset this relaxed boyish look, I paired mine with a feminine crop top and heels.

There's an inherent no-fuss, cool-girl quality to this look that makes getting dressed a snap.

Overalls are a tried and true style that have the renaissance of summer. Never underestimate the emotive power of a good pair of dungarees! The most playful of garments, there’s something nostalgic about sliding into this all-in-one piece that makes you want to go climb trees.

If you’re feeling apprehensive about trying a trend like overalls, ease into the style by pairing a dark wash with comfy basics. A solid black or white tee and some sneaks for daytime wear, or a divey night out. Once you're ready to take it to the next level, swap out the casual slides for strappy minimal heels. The sleek shoe will balance out the distressed fit and make for one effortless look.

The modern take on this one-and-done becomes weekend-ready when paired with black ankle boots and a buttoned-to-the-top oxford shirt (think Olivia Palermo.)  Or go grunge with one strap undone and a plaid shirt draped around your waist. Layer with stripes for a cool daytime style. Top off with a straw boater hat and ride out those hot days of summer like a kid again.

Minimalist Style

Jessica Wagner

Less Is More
 

In light of keeping things laid-back and comfy, this weekend I went for a minimal aesthetic.

Classic white sneaks and a denim shirtdress. Perfect for a causal look, the lightweight denim dress is a versatile piece you can style up or down. Dress it up with neutral-toned wedges for a low-key date night, or dress it down with street-style staples like I did for this post. It’s a quick go-to outfit for all season long.

Minimalist styling is majorly on trend. I love how incredibly polished and clean one can look with little effort. 

The key? Less is more.

Impeccably tailored cuts and solid neutral colors, like black, white, tan, grey, and blue are your friends. Interesting proportions and great fabrics add character when trying to achieve this look. Be intentional with your focal point and use structured pieces. Avoid flashy add-on accessories, which can lean "messy."  Let the artistry and design of the clothing shine through. 

Keep in mind, you want to retain your personality, minimalist doesn't mean lifeless and dull! A graphic clutch can speak volumes and add that extra little bit of charm. Swipe on a bright bold lip or go nude. Wear your favorite necklace or signature hairstyle. Stay true to your core self.

Edit for simplicity.  Elude elegance.

It’s all in the details.

This weekend go for minimal expression and leave a maximum impression. Try a great pair of jeans, a white T-shirt, and your favorite slides. That’s it—you’re good to go!
