Digging it in Dungarees (How to style dungarees)

  • dsc_0079

I was super excited when I bought this dungarees from Pretty Little Things online website. However, what I was unsure about was how a pair of dungarees would look on me as the last time I saw myself in one, when mother bought me a denim style pair at the age of 12. I proceeded cautiously with held breath as I keyed in my debit card details… This was either going to be a moment of fashion genius or an epic fashion fail




Am sure we all too familiar with browsing an online store, being absolutely mesmerised by the wonderful, beautifully photoshopped photographed  image of a 5’8 size 4 model who is mostly a long limbed size 4 fine specimen that can werk/rock even the most tacky item within every inch of its man made fabric life. You and I on the other hand that are mere mortals but are also beautiful minus the endless long limb crated with a few lumps and bumps in places i.e. curves in places we doesn’t care too much for, buys the same item and say a silent prayer to the fashion gods that you look half as decent in the said purchase however sometimes that fashion god just has his ears closed and it is an absolute disaster by the time the item gets delivered. Well I was lucky as my prayers were answered. I neither looked like a 12 year old in dungarees but instead managed to pull off a modestly fashionable look. #WINNING

There are so many styles to choose from, ranging from wide leg  jumpsuit style to dungaree playsuit and the oh so cool 90s style. So no matter you body shape, there would be something to suit the 90s child inside all of us. Buy a pair in black or blue so you are able to wear it way into the autumn season. for tall ladies  I would recommend a tight fitted skinny jeans style with your best pair of heels for that ultimate night time look, for petit ladies, try a wide leg style paired with wedges to elongate that legs and create the illusion of height. If you are curvy, try a “boyfriend” style dungaree. I even managed to rope in Martin and carefully coordinated his outfit to suit that black and white (pun intended) look that I love so much 😉

Night look



With my outfit sorted, there was one small thing left, where I would have photographs taken that matched the street/90s concept I had. I had one of  my rare light bulb moment and remembered during a random wandering, myself and a drive were driving around Waterloo and came across the coolest car wash. It couldn’t be more perfect. After the photoshoot, I somehow managed to get some paint on my new jeans but that was an issue for another day, I was too deliriously happy to care The entire idea had all come together seamlessly well. I was proud 🙂

    First of all those twists are eeeeeverything! And my fav way of you rocking your dungareens is with the faux black leather top and the dungareens worn half off- super cool, and could be a look pulled out from a mag! Your male friend looks good too. You’re lucky to have a friend you can do fun shoots with, enjoy this! x
