Finish off the look of your overalls with the help of colorful fabric letters and patches. Use them to spell out your school’s name, the word ‘senior’, or your graduation year. If you can’t find fabric letters, you can achieve the same result by painting them with fabric paint.
Moreover, don’t forget about details such as sequins, puffs, and gemstones which you can also use to spell out whatever you wish.

All overalls have suspenders. Therefore, don’t forget to turn them into a work of art by coloring them or putting different decorations on them. You can write something or add gemstones for instance.

I just love this idea! The leg fluffs are super pretty and I think they enhance the design of the senior overalls quite well. Other places that you can add this element are on the pockets and the suspenders as I think that would look super stylish. It’s important to secure the puffs very well so they don’t fall off.

Paws are also a very popular decoration that students love to put on their homecoming overalls. The reason is that most school sports teams have a big cat as a logo. By having the paw as a decoration, the students show school unity and their support for the team.

Apart from paint and various decorations like sequins and gemstones, you can also put colorful iron-on patches. For example, you can place them on the whole pocket. Another suggestion is to sew parts of your old clothes onto your overalls to make them more eye-catching.
9. DIY Senior Overalls – Be Creative
The most important thing when making your senior overalls is to express who you are through colors, shapes, and lettering. If you feel like Barbie, then use pink paint. If you are a fan of the school basketball team, put their logo on your spirit overalls. It’s important to have some elements that represent your school, but the design is entirely up to you.
10. Denim Overall Dress
I love this design with sunflowers, it’s very sweet and feminine. I also like how clean the design is
Overall dresses don’t have a lot of room for decorations, but this also encourages you to be minimalistic in your decorations and try to show more with less. Stick to one main color and add a theme to your overalls.
11. Senior Overalls With Names
Write your name on your pair of senior overalls. You can do this via fabric letters or paint. One more interesting suggestion is to write your nickname instead of your name, so the design will become more spectacular and personal.
12. Homecoming Overalls
Long pants overalls give you a lot of opportunities for DIY decorations. However, one part of them often gets overlooked and that is the bottom of the legs. On them, you can put different things like puffs, pom poms, fringe, fabric patterns, and others. This will surely finish off the look of your blinged out senior overalls.
13. Black & Yellow Homecoming Senior Overalls
Does anyone remember that song from Wiz Khalifa called “Black and Yellow”? It was such a hit song, I still play it in my car sometimes. Whatever, back to the subject!😂
When it comes to clothes, one of the coolest things for me is the color combination of black and yellow. These two colors complement themselves very nicely and are a great choice for decorating your senior overalls.
14. Bff Overalls
