How To Wear Dungarees

Dungarees are going nowhere.

They're a staple for every woman worth her fashion salt, mainly because they're just so versatile, and despite naysayers: they can look grown-up and work for office hours.

Look no further than the street style for proof to why they're a perrenial favourite.

Summer saw the rise of the flare and now suedes and cord versions are ruling the roost along with more tailored dark denims. Here's here to wear the most popular silhouettes of the moment, with some style tips from our favourite street style stars.

Straight leg

A laid-back pair of straight legs are a flattering choice. Wear in a dark denim, with 70s shades of camel and coffee for a grown-up way to wear the trend.

Cords are this season's most on trend way to do dungarees. Sport yours over a striped knit for added 70s style points.

Boyfriend fit

Baggy, straight-cut overalls are the perfect go-to for off-duty days. Just add a white tee and box-fresh trainers.

The flare

Flared denims are still going strong this season, and paired with a Breton top and platforms there's no chicer dungaree silhouette.



Leather dungas can be daytime appropriate - slip over a turtleneck and you've got the ideal outfit for arming against the Autumn chill.

Wide leg

Layer your dungarees with a chunky knit and even fluffier coat for the cosiest of Winter looks. Heels will keep your huggy bear look streamlined.
