Styling Dungarees

Dungarees are a favourite, from Donna in Mamma Mia! To the Minions. There are so many ways to style them and make them feel different every time.

I have taken one single pair from Wyse London, but I also have dungaree dresses and short dungarees. These are the Regular Length Scarlett, and sit on the ankle on me at 5' 4"ish. I have included mainly summer looks that can be transitioned to Autumn, I will definitely pop back with another post with Winter looks nearer the time. I’m a Summer girl, so hope that is much later!  For my first look, I’m keeping it summer and casual with a Zara puff sleeved floral t-shirt and some Converse pumps sliders in milkshake pink. This look has super casual vibe for a day with the children at the Theme Park!

The next look is my ‘Children’s TV Presenter’ look! I just love this gorgeous sunny Boden sweater. The sweater is soft cashmere, so again gives a luxe feel to a utilitarian item and is perfect for those slightly colder days. I have paired with some Zara lemon sliders and a yellow handbag, also from Boden. Pure sunshine!

In my third look I’m using a statement pattern shirt in a viscose fabric, and a loud print to glam up what is considered by some to be an ordinary item. I have put this French Connection blouse with red shiny Boden boots to complete my look. I have accessorised with a cross-body bag in a different shade/ texture to keep the look more relaxed.

In this casual preppy look, I am dressing my dungas for a a chilled day out. I have worn a statement 'Be Kind' tee underneath from Riots to Rainbows, left a strap loose, and popped a jacket over the top. This jersey bomber jacket is from Boden and has nice detail to the sleeves and collar. I have paired with some Moschino sliders for comfort!  

In my final look, I am wearing a silk shirt from J. Crew underneath with Boden leopard print heels and a Mulberry leather bag. This would be nice for the school run, or a day out shopping or lunch with friends. I like the mixed textures of the denim with the finer silk fabric. The shoes are no longer available, but it would also look lovely with some pumps or espadrilles like these. I hope you like these styles and have shown you some versatile ways to wear dungarees. Let me know which is your favourite!
