Remember back in the day in junior high when you had to beg your mom to spend buku bucks on a super soft Abercrombie hoodie? Well, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the brand has made some major changes and one of them is keeping the quality high and prices very reasonable. Now that sweater weather is in full force, Abercrombie has been one of the main places I visit to get some new knits.
Embroidery and ruffles are all the craze right now. From shoes, handbags, tops and denim – you’ll see it everywhere this season. Luckily with fashion, history has a tendency to repeat itself, so naturally I already own an embroidered bag I picked up a few years ago from a local thrift store. I styled the bag with a pair of my favorite boyfriend denim shorts from Abercrombie [P.S. ladies who have a little more of a romp – boyfriend jeans are your BFF this summer]. The short style is comfortable, does not ride up when you walk, and are the perfect amount of loose. The bright ruffle blouse completed the look.
Overalls are something I haven’t really considered adding to my wardrobe. Along with jumpsuits, it takes me forever to find the right one [since one piece items are not the most versatile]. When I came across these black denim overalls, I was a little skeptical thinking I might look ridiculous. Once I put them on they were so comfortable.
Some things to consider if you’re buying overalls:
— Do you want a lighter / medium denim? Great, go get ’em.
— If you’re worried about standard denim looking to casual, opt for a dark denim like gray or black.
— Worried about fit? There are all kinds of styles from skinny, boot cut, cropped, flared, shorts and loose boyfriend fit. No matter your body type, I’m sure you’ll be able to set your heart on one!
I styled my overalls with pumps, a military inspired cardigan, striped top and chic top knot. The pumps add an instant dressed up feel and the cardigan adds some contrast vs. wearing the overalls alone [which I’m probably going to ease into the more I wear them].
Who else has been loving the warm weather lately? I hope that groundhog was wrong because the days are getting longer and warmer and I want it to keep up. With transitioning seasons comes transition wardrobe pieces and outfits. I’ve rounded up some spring wardrobe essentials to keep you stylish as the weather gets warmer.
