DONNING THE DUNGAREES

They're not just for workmen!












Dungarees  ASOS
Jumper Oasis
Booties  Kurt Geiger
Scarf  Alexander McQueen
Bag Diesel

So this is the second time I've donned my new dungarees (first appearance on the blog) and I still generally have a mixed opinion about their ‘position’ in the fashion world, hence the reason I went for a safe black in preference to some of the more interesting colours I've witnessed. I’m not completely discouraged by them otherwise I would have returned them to ASOS, but I do wonder if only certain 'someones' can really get away with wearing dungarees.

I guess my main issue with dungarees is the fact they are typically an overall and therefore often the cut is not particularly flattering when it comes to trying to accentuate one’s curves; I mean they are pretty much straight up and down, but then I guess they were never designed to have this feminine function, so I may as well just quit moaning, accept their sartorial style and work with them!

So this is what I've tried to do here; to be fair these ASOS ones are a little more tailored than others I've seen, but nonetheless I've turned up the hems for a little ankle flash and worn them with my super high booties in an attempt to make me feel more womanly and less painter/decorator! I've even added a little wavy kink to my hair; and yes I've continued to be pigeonholed by wearing yet another outfit that follows the monochromatic trend.

What are your thoughts on the one-piece garment that is..... dungarees?

  3. I just love dungarees. I mean, they are so cool. I have one in jeans, and when it's summer, I wear it all the time! Some people think it's too boyish, but I love them so much :) You look stunning there! I love how you made it your own, it looks so girly and amazing.

    1. I wonder sometimes whether I'm too old to wear certain things too, but if I don't admit my age I tend to get away with it! lol

  10. i have to say that jean dungarees are cutesy wutesy arent they?

    But the pure black ones definitely have that fashion edge. It almost seems like they are a take on dungarees if that makes any sense - at first glance they dont necessarily look conspicuously like dungarees and so looks very cute and chic

    actually it is very 5 inch and up ish!

    also with the way you styled it with the scarf and the shoes with the monochromatic theme - you are rocking the look!

    but for the average girl - i am sorry but we couldn't get away with it. just sayin.

    1. Whooaa! 5 inch and up ish, I never thought I'd hear that comment on one of my outfit posts. Compliment or what! Not sure how she'd feel about it though lol x

      ha ha "the average girl" - I'll take that as a compliment too if you are suggesting what I think you are! x

  46. Wow, you carry these off so well!!! I am actually amazed to come across someone who looks good in dungarees, well done!! :) I am not a fan of dungarees (on me I mean) as they don't suit my body shape and I just end up looking like a tubby child lol.
