DONNING THE DUNGAREES
They're not just for workmen!
Booties Kurt Geiger
Scarf Alexander McQueen
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?
