Olivia Palermo Has a Styling Hack to Make Your Overalls Look Polished
If the thought of wearing overalls still conjures up images of your childhood, you haven't seen Olivia Palermo wearing hers yet. The fashion pro, who has a way of making everything look more elevated, has a styling trick that's never failed to make the former kiddo-only staple into a polished adult-friendly outfit. As we've kept tabs on her looks, we've noticed one key component all of her overalls ensembles have in common: she never wears them with a t-shirt.
Instead, Olivia treats her overalls the way you might style a pair of your favorite skinny jeans. She doesn't let them dictate the outfit but rather adds pieces that lend a sophisticated vibe, like an off-the-shoulder top and statement necklace for a night out or a trench coat and a white blouse for a day at the office. Even with her most casual overalls, she never just adds a beat-up tank top and flip-flops; she steps it up with a blouse and embroidered slippers. She never lets the overalls become the whole outfit, and that's the key. Read on to see how Olivia's mastered the look, then take a page straight from Miss Palermo's playbook and shop the key pieces to get the look.
