let’s face it, it’s basically all overalls all the time around these parts lately so i figured it was time i do a little styling session with my beloved denim. as you know, after falling in love with my black pair of skinny overalls, i immediately ordered the same style in blue denim. after sharing my styling tips live on my instagram stories (they are saved under my “outfits” highlight in my profile) and in the liketoknow.it app, i wanted to include the particulars here as well just in case this space is the easiest place for you to shop and/or peruse my outfits.
first of all, let’s discuss the overalls themselves. both pairs are from madewell (of course) and the “skinny” style.
with a generous torso, i opted for the small in both. in all honesty, i would be interested to know how the santiago wash fit in an x-small since they fit a bit more generously, but i would be fearful that in dropping down a size, i would lose some inseam length.
speaking of the santiago wash, i’ve had some questions as to their quality and until someone pointed it out, i hadn’t really noticed. but after wearing them a few times, i’ll be honest and say the fabric is slightly thinner and a lot stretchier than the black version. however, i find the same to be true about my regular black denim versus my blue denim -the black pairs have always felt thicker and more rigid.
slight differences aside (randomly the santiago wash pair is $30.00 cheaper and have a finished hem unlike the black pair that has a raw cut hem), both pairs are the exact same cut and style -with the criss-cross back, high-waisted rise, and side zipper. bottom line -i love them both and will definitely be wearing them on rotation for the foreseeable future!
if you’re overalls obsessed like me, you may be looking for some fresh styling inspiration. so i’ve put together six looks for a variety of occasions/seasons. i hope they’re helpful!
