Wide-Leg, Cropped Overalls


I have been wearing overalls for the past couple of years, and I have found them to be extremely comfortable. Unfortunately, my last pair broke while I was on set in California. I adored them (see them here). So, it was time to find a replacement.


In the time that I bought my Levi’s (old overalls) and my new pair by Topshop, the styles had changed from skinny to straight to wide-leg. Like any trend, I wasn’t into the wide-leg cropped pant when it first hit the scene, but I have warmed up to it. I am always a fan, however, of cropped pants because every pant that I wear ends up being cropped due to my long legs.


These overalls in particular are amazing because they are formfitting at the natural waist, which is very rare in overall designs. I appreciate this because it is much more figure flattering.


I don’t particularly love the backside, but I do love how high-waisted they are. It allows me to wear all sorts of cropped tops and tanks. I’m wearing a bodysuit in these photos, which can be a challenging bathroom combo. LOL! I do not recommend. Haha!

I've traded in my skinnies for some flared jeans, and I forgot how good they feel. Do you remember wearing flared pants or even wide leg jeans? I know! It feels like a distant memory, but they are back in a big way and I finally bought myself a pair of Who What Wear jeans from Target

I love them because they make my legs look even long and my waist ity-bity. Oh yeah, did I mentioned they are high waist jeans that suck everything in too? Oh yeah, baby! This mama is one happy girl right now because, as I shared in a past post, my body isn't quite back to itself even though Levi turns 1 years old this coming week. AHH!

If you have long legs and a long torso, the key to wearing these jeans is to define your waist by tucking in your shirt. I don't like everything super structured, so I added my kimono (also from Target). A contrasting denim jacket would work well or simply a tank and t-shirt is always great. 

Length is always an issue when you wear flare pants. I'm going to hem these jeans because I love wearing lower heels. For now, it works with these suede wedges.  So, are you ready to get your pair of flare (see what I did there)? If you're a bit hesitant you can find them at Target on sale for $34.99. That's such a low price for a fashion experiment! Let me know if you try!
