How to Wear: Dungarees

Aim of the game with this months fashion item, is to style this historically utility associated garment and a) not look like a dock worker or b) look like a toddler. I believe that there are two ways to wear - casually with a tee & trainers or dressed up with heels and a statement bag. Most options around on the highstreet currently are in either traditional denim /gorgeous pastel coloured denim or summery cotton. I actually fell in love with the idea of dungarees when i was pregnant, very cute and bump accommodating but was so unsure how to style.

Personally i see the dungaree as a transitional piece, ideal for those spring & autumn days, when you need a little more coverage, teamed with bare ankles and a great tee. Dungarees would be a lot harder to style in the winter, cute with ankle boots, but a coat layered over the top would hide your silhouette, which this piece really shows off however there is something cute about teaming it with a chunky, slouchy knit (see image below) for a off duty weekend look. A buttoned up denim shirt also seems like a great layering option.

As usual below are some of my favourite looks, inspiration for "ways to wear" .....which is your favourite?

As per usual, my favourite fashionista Blair from @atlanticpacific has hit the style nail on the head! She appears to have go to combinations for styling up her dungarees - a striped tee and killer accessories, I especially love the white and baby pink outfit above, a very spring feminine take on the trend and a great balance to a masculine garment. I also really love her sophisticated tartan/plaid "workwear" look, teamed with a classic camel coat, not a traditional way to wear but very modern business woman.

How would you style a pair of dungarees?
