Yes, You Can Wear Overalls in the Fall and Winter—Here's How

You may think of overalls as more of a summer garment—blame the months you spent as a kid wearing them while school was out—but they actually hold their own in the colder months, too. Follow the lead of the fashion set to learn how to wear overalls in the fall and winter, and you won't have to pack them away with your sandals and gingham dresses.

If you have a denim pair, swap out your linen crop top for a lightweight hoodie or a knit turtleneck. Pile on the outerwear—whether it's a leather jacket or a faux-fur coat—and make cropped hems seasonally appropriate with cute hosiery or ankle-hugging sock boots. It's also the ideal time to break out overalls in heavier fabrics like leather or velvet, which can be dressed up with silk blouses or fancy knits.

With a little thoughtful layering, dungarees can be a year-round staple. Below, see 10 ways to wear them right now, plus shop pairs for every style.
