Admit it, if you’re a 90’s girl, you’re eyeing overalls this season. And now that it’s getting hotter, shortalls (as we like to call them) are great for spring and summer. But while you’re thinking about buying a pair, you can’t help but remember the ones you wore as a kid. So now, almost twenty years later, how can you make shortalls cool? How can you “bring ’em back?” Well, we have the answer.

Following a style bloggers’ tips is a great way to learn how to wear tricky new trends, like shortalls. So we looked high and low for the bloggers that “wore it best.” While each blogger wears shortalls differently, they all make them look super cute and totally grown-up.

1. With stripes. Nautical stripes are always popular during the warmer months, and we already know that booties are great for spring. Pair your shortalls with both of these trends, like Sarah Yates of A House In The Hills, and you have the perfect casual daytime look.

Get the Look: Blank NYC Overall Playsuit ($97.83), J.Crew Long-Sleeve Sailor-Stripe Shirt ($49.50), and Minnetonka ‘Bandera’ Boot ($94.95)

2. With pumps. Now that you’re a “grown-up” you can dress up your shortalls with a great pair of heels and an embroidered top. If you style your shortalls like this, you can take them from day to night with ease.
